Happy Birthday Littlest Rose!

She wasn't where she had been.

She wasn't where she was going...

but she was on her way!

He is risen indeed!

The sun shone brightly on our Easter Sunday (which was really Saturday) and littlest Rose's birthday celebration. We bought both of the Roses beautiful dressies and stuffed eggs for THE hunt. We ate a huge prime rib, 13 lbs to be exact and devoured some ladybug cake and homemade peanut butter cups!

THE roast!

And my Ray said, "Momma, sister looks like a princess!"

Looking for eggs...

The middle Rose was so kind...she helped the mini Rose and made sure she got enough eggs.

And my Wild Blonde Boy chose an egg from his basket and gave it to the mini Rose!

And she opened and liked the paper best while the middle Rose, my Wild Blonde boy and my Ray helped her.

She knew she was the center...she loved being sung to and even ate her cake that Mama had made her.

Before and after peanut butter cups!

Doesn't everyone dance in their diaper during their birthday celebration!

Our biggest little baby loved laying by Chili, who graciously allowed it for the moment...he is quite lame and I have to give him credit...he is so gentle.

The 3 Roses, that is my Mom's hand.

Seriously? Really!#*

You know what today's date is, right...and what is that frozen white stuff all over the ground. While beautiful, yes? But isn't it April showers, not April frozen white stuff that you have to scrape off your car! God moves in mysterious ways.
I think the forsythia are shivering...

It is pretty though.

Scraping a car in April...who knew it could be so fun.

Sargie poo poo was not real happy about this change of landscape!

The "Shes"

She laid her head on my shoulder
and her breathing filled me . . .

almost to beyond what
I could hold.
Story people.

Read previous blog first!

Have you ever seen such a beautiful layout! We had the best time!

Phone calls

I got two phone calls last night. One was from my oldest telling me that Ray of Sunshine said I was his favorite Framma. (Now I know he rarely sees his other Framma...but to my starving heart it sounded like the world to me.) He then got on the phone and I told him he is my favortie 4 year old. He said thanks and then asked when we were coming to visit so I could read him a story. Last time we visited, he and I had the best time reading Curious George and watching the movie from the library. That Curious George! He gets into a lot of trouble!

My second phone call was from my special Rose asking me if I could please make lemon poppy seed muffins. She has discovered she LOVES them, they are her FAVORITE. They are my favorite too.
Of course I said yes. The last time we had our special day together she made them with my supervision and she did an excellent job.
She also set up ALL the Barbie stuff on the bed so we could play and I wouldn't have to sit on the floor. What a nice day!
I have a photo to upload, but it is not letting me.

First sunny day!

Doesn't he remind you of a chubby deer?
