(Although her eyes are partially open in the picture, she really was asleep -- she was just rustling around in her sleep due to the camera flash!)

The kids spent an hour outside in the rain today and had lots of fun; then they came in for a warm bath and some hot chocolate.
This was the first time Abigail has really played in the rain, which is a special moment in our house -- we love rain-play!
My apologies for the seasick nature of the recording...Baker kept trying to climb over me to see out of the window...!

A five year old can spend three times as long explaining why he can't pick up the mess as it actually takes him to just do it.
A white dog will find (and roll in) EVERY patch of wet gray paint left in the yard, and it takes an as-yet-unknown amount of time for it to wear off.
When the freezer dies, the food inside starts to smell funny in a very short amount of time.
When a quiet moment of escape is needed, but there is no "good" chocolate in the house, a square of baker's chocolate will suffice!

My cardiologist appt went well today. A nice surprise was that the timing worked out for my parents to meet us at the hospital, where we all parked on the top level of the parking garage and they played with the kids while I had a (peaceful!) appt. To summarize the appt, the arrythmia and abnormal EKG do not appear to be caused by anything that requires further intervention -- it's just 'one of those things'. I have to finish out my month with the heart monitor and then I will see the cardiologist annually to make sure nothing untoward develops.
Grandma 'Nota made John Deere quilts for each of the kids, and they were so excited! I'm sure they'll sleep better than ever before underneath their own yellow and green!

He is risen indeed!
We had a pleasant Easter together -- albeit much colder than the Easters we are used to down here! The girls all had sweaters and tights instead of bare arms and ruffly ankle socks; none of the boys wore their Easter-outfit shorts...but they were all adorable nonetheless!
I curled Abigail's hair into ringlets -- she has always been freaked out by the curling iron but yesterday her daddy told her Mommy was going to give her princess hair -- it did the trick! She has pretty hair anyway, but it was beautiful in "boings" (as a girl, that's what I called ringlets)...
Hope you all had a blessed Easter...

We have our plane tickets, rental car, hotel room, etc...now we're just anxious to go for this special day...and I know they are more anxious than we are. Jared proposed on April 1st of last year and they are both sick to death of the preparation and waiting -- all of us who have gotten married know that feeling from the last month before the wedding!
