It was beautiful today so we hit the town park. The children were not willing to have their picture taken so I only took one. Make sure to look close Beth is not doing what you think she is.

However Sammi had her play group today and they had an Easter egg hunt. We haven't had a play group session since Christmas and Sammi missed that due to her pneumonia and hospital stay.

We had a turkey dinner for Easter.

Ham was my first choice but the frozen turkey in the freezer won out against the ham still at Walmart. (hehe!)However my girls enjoyed the turkey legs very much!

A tradition of breaking the wishbone.

Our First Easter Egg Decoration
The night before Easter and for the first time the girls and I did Easter eggs. I had never done them before with the girls. I guess growing up we focused on church and the Easter morning goodie basket we would get as kids. We stopped getting them around 12/13, but I have friends that are 24 and still expect their parents to load them up with sugar.
The girls and I decided to do the tie-dye eggs. Maybe not the best idea for a 2 year old. AGGGHHH. But thank goodness for plastic baggies that acted as the paintbrush. The finshed eggs were very nice. It took 12 shots until we got the picture that I liked. Then the girls headed to the bathtub to remove any dye.

In Memory of


Saundra Kay Tillis

Gone one year today.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me
I took God's hand when I heard the call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I couldn't stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I found peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, they're things that I too will miss
Be not burdened with time of sorrow
I wish the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much,
Good friends, good time's, a loved ones touch.
Prehaps my time seemed all too brief,
Lift up your heart and share with me
God wanted me now- He set me free.
