These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Strike a pose!

Our nephew Noah came over for a visit this afternoon. He loves to come play with his cousins. I had to get a shot of these three being so cool in their sunglasses. They know how to strike a pose!

Driving lessons from dad

Today Mallory got driving lessons from Shane. Dillon was around 4 years old when he started driving the Kawasaki mule around, so Shane gave Mallory a few driving tips today and let her take the wheel. It is so funny to see her be so serious driving her daddy around. She gets so focused on driving, she doesn't talk at all. Our little girl is growing up right before our eyes...before we know it she'll be getting lessons on how to drive a car so she can get her driver's license. Oh dear!

Ridin' a goat

Today we had some of my family come by for a visit on the farm; Aunt Debbie, Uncle Jamie, Whitney and her husband Donald, and their daughter Abbie. Abbie absolutely loved our "pet" goat Nutmeg. She tried to ride him quite a few times. It was the funniest thing! He would try to walk away before she could get on him and Abbie would hold on to him and say "WHOA" like you would to a horse. She gave him many hugs and kisses. He never seemed to notice us too much though. He had his head down the whole time eating the weeds in our yard...Yes, I know we need to mow our grass. It's on the list of things to do this week.

Also Mallory told Shane she thought that Sally wanted her to ride today, so Shane led Mallory around on Sally with the saddle put on. Sally did real well. She is such a good horse even though she has chased goats and the cows. We had to put her in a small pen by herself. I'm guessing she's just mischevious like a child. Maybe she'll grow out of it. I don't think she's quite 2 years old yet. Here is a picture I snapped of Mallory having girl talk with Sally....

A great Easter!

We started our Easter with sunrise service at church at 6:30 AM. It was a very touching program. How wonderful it is to know that Jesus died on the cross and rose on the third day so that my sins be forgiven and have the promise of spending an eternity in heaven....It's also very emotional to know the pain and suffering that Jesus Christ went through so that we all might be saved and yet people still don't accept Him as their Savior.

These are pictures of Dillon and Mallory in their Easter attire

After church we went to Grandma BB's to have a nice Easter lunch with her. She had cooked a delicous meal. As you can see by the photos, it was enjoyed. She even made a homeade pecan pie for dessert. That was Shane's favorite! I enjoyed a big ole' glass of sweet tea the most!

Later in the day, we went to Nana's where she had her camper set up. The kids were so excited to get outdoors in the sun and play. We could hear such excitement coming from behind some bushes nearby and went to find them playing like this...

Thank goodness we had changed clothes and had plenty extra. They had a blast in that nasty mud. We decided why not let them enjoy themselves!

This photo is of my sister with her youngest, Gabriel. He is such a moma's boy! He would not let any of us hold him if his mom was near, so cute...

Waiting for the tooth fairy....

Dillon has lost his top front tooth yesterday and put it under his pillow last night. This morning he woke up to find that the tooth fairy didn't come and his tooth was still under his pillow. Shame on her!! It was so late last night that I believe she fell asleep before Dillon! Shane told Dillon that he had to go to bed earlier or she wouldn't come. She keeps early hours. We'll see if she stops by tonight ;)

Dillon hit his first homerun tonight. It was a nail biter! He hit the ball and didn't stop running. He never watched his coaches and took some risks, but he ended up getting all the way to home plate and tackled the catcher and the next batter (they were in his way). You see, Dillon doesn't like to lose, so he felt like he had to do whatever it took to score for his team. After the game, I asked Dillon if Coach Sean was telling him to run to third? He said "No, I wasn't watching them, I was just running hard so we could get a point." Way to go Dillon. Their team lost 20-5 but he got his first homerun ever, so it was a great game.
