Since I'm sitting at home not feeling well, I decided it would be a good time to catch up on our blog a little bit. We went to see my parents over Easter weekend and had a good time. The weather was nice and Kaleigh had an interesting Easter Egg hunt in my parents' lovely front yard :) Friday before Easter, Nathan was off and we spent the day redoing a flower bed in the backyard. I'll post pics of that later. Here are some Easter pics:

Kaleigh got a Dora umbrella in her Easter basket. I knew she would like it b/c we went to visit my grandmother in December and she Loved playing with her umbrellas and talks about them all the time. When we asked her where the umbrella came from, she said "Grandmother's house!" Anyway, I knew she would like it but had no idea how much. She carries it around with her constantly and looks for rain every day so she can carry it outside with her.

She was pretty good at finding the eggs this year.

What we did this weekend:

Got married! Lots and lots of times. Our church had its Easter presentation, "The Kingdom", and Nathan and I contributed our little part of getting married. During the "wedding" Jesus turns the water into wine. Overall, it is an amazing production and extremely meaningful. The songs are beautiful and the set is something to see. We put in about 4 hours each night from Thursday to Sunday, but others put in much, much more time.

Also on Saturday, we decided to do a little spruce up of our front flower beds. Unfortunately, we forgot to take a before picture, but here is the after. We got a new weed border and the red mulch, and pulled lots of weeds, and planted one more little plant.

Snow Day! (or Morning, anyway)

Just when I'd given up on the possibility... Nathan woke me yesterday morning and told me that it had snowed and I didn't even believe him! Too many years of living with my brother...
Kaleigh had fun playing in it and eating it, and I brought some inside to make snow cream.

My mother-in-law, Patti, was inspired to write this poem.

March came in like a lamb,
It lasted 3 days.
The lion roared through
Blowin' snow for kid's plays.

On Sunday it's 60,
On Tuesday there's snow;
Arkansas weather is crazy,

That's one thing we know!

One day it's a coat,
The next, none at all.
Is it springtime or winter,

Summer or fall?

Our weather's a paradox.
Our seasons will lie.
Not Knowing what greets you
Upon openin' your eye.
-Patti Statton

We are so glad that the weather is getting better and Kaleigh can play outside again! On Saturday Nathan and I worked all day in the yard removing these leaves, and Kaleigh entertained herself for hours outside. We will be planting some gardens soon, and doing our 2nd attempt at growing grass in the backyard, and hopefully have some sort of play area for Kaleigh by the end of summer. We'll keep you updated on our progress. Now, I must go read about perennials that will look pretty year round and thrive in the shade with little upkeep.
