Easter fun

These are the four Fertig great-grandkids - Jacklynn, Jillian, Lauren and Sophie. Next year, there will be two more girls on the couch. Jaime is due in about two weeks with another girl and me in July.

Here are the Poe grandkids - Emily, Jake, Lauren and Jillian. Emily is exactly one year younger than the girls and is wearing Lauren's Easter dress from last year. Isn't it amazing how much they grow in one year!

This is a classic Jillian shot to me. Paci in mouth, toes turned in, baby in hand, dress slightly up (trying her best to be a lady, but it's just not easy for a wild woman), and her hair in a barrette.

Lauren's basket was getting pretty full. She got the hang of the egg hunt pretty quickly.

Jillian was a natural, too. It was cute watching them carry their baskets and put eggs in all by themselves.

This is Lauren getting her first egg.


A rare Keller family photo. Shannon got an even better shot (with all the kids looking). Back (R to L): Andy, Mike and Jason. Middle: Me, Duane, Debbie and Shannon. Front: Lauren, Jillian and Sophie.

We had a great Easter this year. We went to Easter services at church on Saturday evening and then Sunday afternoon, we were off to the McCord's party barn to celebrate with our families. (Andy and I are very grateful that our families celebrate holidays like this together.)

We ate a delicious lunch and then the kids had an egg hunt. It was so cute. The only one not participating was little Emily (6 mo.), but I hear Jake got lots of barrettes and rings in his basket, so I'm sure he'll share.

After the egg hunt, everyone just relaxed and visited until we wondered why Jillian was getting cranky, looked at the clock and realized it was bedtime.

I LOVE that picture of Jillian too! What a doll baby and sweet Lauren always melts my heart no matter what she does. It was so nice being able to spend time hanging out yesterday and letting the girls play. We had another great Holiday Memory with you!!
