Birthdays and Easter

Birthdays and Easter blended into one this year, as we celebrated the birthdays of two little grandsons the day before Easter. Jake & Cole are now three years old!

Birthday cards and Easter treats prepared for the grandkids - six Easter bags delivered in person over the weekend (two, a few days later!), and four Easter gifts mailed off to Texas.

A beautiful spring day on Easter Sunday - a fun, relaxing picnic together with our youngest son in place of a big Easter Dinner (as we had gathered as family the day before for birthdays).

Thanking God for ...

delicious cocktails wieners, meatballs, and salads shared as family

little boys having fun opening presents

ten grandkids to prepare little treat bags for
grown kids of ours who live close by
texts and phone calls during the week with those who live far away
love which is always present

  1. Cherry,

    Thanks for visiting and yes, nice to read from another grandmother too! I love worshipping togehter with friends and He is the greatest gift of all!

    Have a blessed week!

  2. "Love which is always present"
    so true! enjoyed how you put that.

    And happy birthday to two of your blessings! We celebrated my son's birthday over Easter, too, with my husband's side of the family. He'll be turning 4 on the 17th -- which is also my 13th wedding anniversary. ;)

    Hugs to you, Cherry! always love my visits here.
