April in pictures.

I love when the weather finally turns nice enough for a lot of time outdoors.  Kites, bubbles, and tree climbing have all been the big things to do lately!

 We think baby girl has some really chubby cheeks going on!

 When the weather is not so nice, coloring and listening to audiobooks are always a good diversion.


 Fun at a local park while the older boys were away.

 Oversized, over-chubbed mini rex.  It's like an oxymoron.  But he's cute.
 We found the Easter bunny and he much prefers eating my hostas over carrots.

 Lots of work to be done!  Dad gets a lot of help.

This handsome guy went to Prom with friends for the first time and had a blast!  I'm so glad that he did and enjoyed himself!

Easter blessings!

A few of our memories from Easter this year:

These three helped me make the Resurrection garden this year on Good Friday.  We didn't plan ahead enough to plant grass but we pulled through with sedum and moss from the garden.  They really love the hands-on aspect of this project!  After a busy Holy Week, it was nice to tie everything together for them.

These two bunnies had a fun Holy Saturday spent with my side of the family.  Egg hunt and all.

The required Easter morning photo on the steps!  It has to happen before baskets can be found!  :)

 The baskets were hard to find this year and we had to resort to a lot of "hot/cold" to help some out.

More required photo taking before Mass!  Just the girls...

Add in five boys...

And finally, a slightly awkward (yet glad to have it!) family photo right before Mass!

Easter blessings to all of you and yours!  Alleluia, He is Risen!
