We had a party for Sammi today at our little park across from the church. Mainly so that the girls and the 2 little kids that were invited could burn off the sugar from the cake. Sammi got barnyard basic blocks, a Dora van roller skates, new game, 3 outfits, a Dora tricycle and tomorrow we are building the playhouse for the girls. My preacher and his wife also came to the party and we invited 3 little boys and another girl that were playing at the park to have some cake. Sammi was very tired by 4:00 and took a nap before church tonight. All in all a good day

Beth had a fun day at her school to celebrate the Week of the Young Child. We went to he school to have games, book readings and instructional classes about washing their hands. Beth seemed to enjoy herself but Sammi just wanted to run about like a chicken with its head cut off. We dressed the girls so that they could play in the bounce house without flashing the world and then they didn't have the house.

Then yesterday we went to Walmart to shop for Sammi's birthday on the 29th and our shopping is always extended for 10 min. because of our trip to the fish department.

We had mac 'n' cheese and tuna cakes for supper. Sammi is still learning that the food goes in her mouth not all over her face.

We played in the yard yesterday enjoying the warm weather. The neighbors had mowed on Sat. and we decided to bury Sammi. She was up and at it very quickly.
Beth had fun wrestling with the neighbor girl next door. We are planning on building an outside playhouse for the girls. They are very excitied about it already trying to decide what toys will go in it and how they want to decorate.

My brother has gotten married. Beth and I were in the wedding. I was the matron of honor and Beth the flower girl. My new sister-in -law is Joanie. The Monday before they got married they were in counciling with the preacher and he emphazied the importance of coming together as a Christian home, both Donny and Joanie said that they wanted to get saved. Donny wanted Dad to come and help him pray so the preacher called Dad. Then both of them prayed.
In memory of Mom we had her picture and her bible at the alter. At the beginning of the wedding Donny and I placed a dozen roses and 3 carnations in front of her picture.
Sammi was very good in fact she slept throught the whole ceremony with Earl gaurding her in the nursery.

We had our Easter egg hunt on Sat. April 7. It was cold and snowing. Sammi could have cared less about the eggs, she just wanted to go with her Papaw into where they had cookies. Beth on the other hand has totally got the point of the hunt and was running everywhere to get the eggs.
