Goin' Fishin'

Kelvin took the big kids to the sporting goods store the other day to get some fishing poles. They were so excited and came in to show off their new goods! A little while later Kelvin came in to tell me he had attached some little weights to their lines and they were practicing casting. After a few minutes he was checking on them to see how they were doing with the casting, and they had both thrown their lines out and were just sitting there looking at them. When he asked what they were doing, they told him they were practicing patience. They said they knew it took a lot of patience to fish, so they were practicing. How sweet is that?! Love those kids of mine! They had a good time fishing this afternoon. No big fish fries today, but I'm sure we'll have one some day.

Cora had her two week check up today! Can you believe it? She is doing fine. She has gained one ounce shy of one pound! Little piggy is doing very well with the nursing, thank you very much!



Emma is doing OK. She continues to fuss a lot without us knowing what to do to comfort her. We've increased one of her medications again, per the doc. I hope it starts helping ease her soon. Her sweet Miss Myrtle brought her a darling Easter bunny today. She liked snuggling with it.






Kelvin wins the best daddy in the world award. Emma woke up at 2 a.m. the day before yesterday and never went back to sleep. I was in our room with Cora, and Kelvin stayed up with Emma all night long. What a guy! I love that man!

Tomorrow Kelvin and I are heading down to the beach house slab to check out the progress of the clean up in the area. One of our friends who had a house there too said we would be amazed at the difference. I'll take pictures.

We have so many friends bringing us yummy food lately! I'm really enjoying the fare. Tonight one of our sweet friends brought homemade lasagna, and another friend brought the cutest dessert! It's a catepillar cake, complete with coconut for the fuzz! The picture doesn't do it justice, but you'll get the idea.



Looking forward to Easter weekend. I've gotten a couple of good recipes for our Easter dinner. I'm still open for suggestions if you have any though. Hope you have a great Easter, even if the weather doesn't cooperate. I think we're looking forward to thunderstorms. Oh well, hunts in the house are fun too! Have you heard about Resurrection Eggs? Our kids love them. Each egg has a symbol which tells the story of the death, burial and ressurrection of Jesus. Happy Easter!

  1. Cora is so absolutely beautiful!! I love that picture of her with Emma and her Daddy. And the picture of Emma snuggled up with her bunny is just too precious!!!

    I'm so glad Veronica led me to your blog. If you ever need anything at all, I mean anything, please let me know! Even if you just need something from Target or Walmart, I would be glad to do it. I'm excited to have a blog friend that actually lives nearby! LOL

    Have a wonderful Easter!
