Happy Easter!

Well, it's Easter time again...bringing promise of Spring! I love Spring because everything in nature becomes new again in it's bloom. Trees already have buds on them and the weather will be nice again. Time to take me out to the ballgames!!!

Zac is acting crazy with his Easter basket here. He loves to pose for photos for his mom! He got a can of peas too in his basket and couldn't wait to dig in! Rachel, however wasn't too happy to dig into her basket and find mixed-vegetables. But it was buried under a lot of chocolate. She is my Chocolate Girl!!! How about some Carrots??? No? Give me CHOCOLATE!!!

In Loving Memory of my "Nipper"

Nipper passed away today in my arms March 18, 2008 at 1:30pm after suffering arthritis for some time and then a stroke. She was the best dog I have ever known. She was very loyal and sweet to everyone she would meet. Everyone will remember her tail wagging and hitting everything like a drum, or the bark at the door to say hello, and never being able to wear black or you'd leave with white hair along! We will miss her soft fur that shed all over our house, but now we miss it. She will be missed by so many hearts she touched. Nipper could leap like a deer when she was a younger dog, as if she had spring in her legs. Now she will be in heaven with springs back in her legs greeting all of her doggie friends who have gone before her. She will have angel wings and will be our guardian angel forever XO -Your Loving Family

Back in 1836

Pioneer Days at my daughter's school was too cool! But I am sure these kids are glad they go to school in 2008!

When they had a mock day at school they had to curtsie or bow to their teacher and call her mistress "name"...that's how they had to show respect to all adults. The teachers had pointers and rang a bell as the kids entered the classroom. I made Rachel's dress and hat with my friend Linda's help! She looked like "Little House On The Prarie's" Laura Ingalls and way too cute here:

On anther day the kids got to do activities such as making candles and ornaments out of tin, square dancing and I helped the fourth graders make funnel cakes. They loved those with all the sugar!!! Here is a photo of Rachel & I on that day:
