Easter Blessings

Gosh, I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I’ve been on here and posted. I figured I’d better report that things are good, and the only thing gloomy lately is the weather.

We had a wonderful Easter. Kati is the perfect age to really get into it. The last couple of weeks at preschool have been filled with fun projects of eggs and baskets - as well as learning the history and story of the Resurrection. Her, Bahama and I had a great time coloring eggs and she was delighted with her Easter Basket that held her new pink Strawberry Shortcake basketball. Since Daddy’s been watching March Madness, she’s been interested in basketball. It’s been fun with a couple of hoops out back, though she is only interested in trying to figure out how to dribble.

We spent the day surrounded by friends and family and it really was very sweet. We were presented with Memory books of Chelsea that several worked at putting together for us. Kati has her own special book that I am so thankful for so she will always be able to see how much she was loved by her sissy. Haiden also put together a wonderful story book for Kati about Princess Chelsea, Princess Kati, the Dragon (cancer) and the Prince (Jesus). It is beautiful and will be treasured for years to come. I will try and get pics and the story posted on here soon for you all to see.

The migraine continues to keep me from the phone, but I’m hoping in the next few months to be feeling better than ever. We are looking forward to spring and summer…. BBQ’s, camping, vacations and simple weekend getaways. Jeff and I celebrate our 14 yr anniversary tomorrow - and I am so thankful for what God has done in us through this last year. He definitely gives us reason to be thankful and to celebrate.

So that’s about it for now. I hope to post again in the next few days.

I'm so glad Easter brought you joy and wonderful memories. The memory books sound like such a blessing. And that story book sounds amazing! What a talented and creative group of friends you have!!! I hope you bring them to the DCH event next weekend so I can see them.

Happy Anniversary! Jeff and I will celebrate our 14th as well this year. 1994 must have been a good year. :) You two make an adorable couple.

Happy Anniversary! What beautiful pictures of the 2 of you!
I remember you writing about the memory books, shortly after Chelsea passed. I'm so glad they are finished. I bet they were the perfect gift to treasure forever!

Welp I hope you and Jeffrey had a VERY happy anniversary. I can remember when you met that cute guy that worked for the cable company. Its weird because it seems like that was a lifetime ago. I just wanted to tell you that those pictures of you two are AWESOME. You both look beautiful and so very happy!
