April 4, 2012

Short post today, due to the fact that Jason spent most of the day in bed - and that's a good thing.

I got up a little early and went for a bike short bike ride (~12 miles) and when I got back to the house everybody was up and they were just finishing breakfast. We talked a little about what we were going to do today and then Jason said he wanted to go lay back down. Linda's folks were coming back over a little later in the morning to spend the day with us, and prepare an "Easter Dinner" since they won't be here on Easter. They will be heading over to Linda's brother's place in Arizona, and spending Easter with him. We also decided to have an "Easter Egg Hunt" for the girls, and the girls across the street. The other two girls are friends with Stacy and Jackie and they get to play together sometimes, as well as see each other at the day care. Anyway the egg hunt went off about as well as any I have ever seen. The two oldest girls both found 14 eggs and the two youngest found 5 eggs each. The real fun was trying to get the two younger girls interested in the hunt.

Afterward the two neighbor girls went back home with their dad and the meal was prepared. It was probably close to 17:30 (5:30pm) when we ate. The girls had gone down for their naps a little later than normal due to the egg hunt and therefore they slept a bit later than usual. I think they were pretty tired from all the activity, too. It was a very nice dinner, and now Jason and I have a bunch of left over ham for later. Linda's folks (Nana and Tata to the girls) are headed out to Arizona tomorrow morning, early, so they needed to go pack, and headed back to their hotel. The rest of the evening was spent playing with the girls; taking a bath; and, telling a story before bed. The girls were still a little worn out and I think they'll sleep well tonight - just like Linda and I will... ;-)

Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers.

  2. Lifting up prayers to the Only One who can answer!
    Psalms 4:7-8 Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
