Two Wonderful Weekends

The past two weekends have been just wonderful.

First of all, Jason turned the big 3-0! Wahoo! My sweet boy is a thirty-something now. And ya know, he's taking it so well! He had his "quarter-life crisis" when he turned 27, is so over it, and welcomed 30 with opened arms.

We had the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends on Friday (March 26th- Jason's bday). We headed over to his mom and step-dad's house for our traditional birthday dinner with the fam (which is what we do for everyone's birthday). However, what Jason didn't know is that many others were waiting for him to arrive and a small family dinner turned into a fun surprise party! It was great, everyone hid, had blow horns, and yelled "surprise"; and Jason was actually surprised! It was super fun hanging out with everyone, eating yummy burgers, and enjoying some red velvet cake....mmmmmmmm..... The party continued on Saturday as we celebrated Jeff Kuhlers (Jason's bud) birthday and had more fun with friends, played ladder golf, guitar hero, and ate more yummy food. We then headed over to Jason's dad and step-mom's house, visited with his Gran Gran, aunt, and uncle, and enjoyed more yummy food. Yes, we ate well that weekend :o)

Happy birthday dear Jason....

That brings us to Easter weekend!

We started out the celebration with our Easter service at church, with a ROCKIN' praise set, by the way, and continued with the 2 year old Sunday School class. It was such a blessing being in there with them as we talked about the Easter story; it's amazing how much they understand and so sweet to hear them tell the story back to you. It's refreshing hearing the story from a childs perspective. And so sweet! We then spent the afternoon at the Scott's house, then the evening with the Fellers', hunting Easter eggs, playing ladder ball, visiting and enjoying our feasts!

Sweet cousins!

Here's one!
Pulling grass out of her basket!

Happy girl!

This Easter egg hunting is serious business...

And there's no better way to celebrate Easter than out in the beautiful sunshine!!! Warm, windless days are rare here in West Texas, so you better believe we spent the whole day outside! Quite a difference from the previous weekend...

The view down our street...yes that is brown sky!

I'm just reminded of how blessed I am to have an amazing husband, so many wonderful family and friends, and a God that loves even me. How thankful I am for what He did for us!
