We survived Easter!

After church from 3-6 we had my family all come over for dinner. I had ham cooking in the crockpot and got the deserts the day before. (yes, I bought them..I have guilt since I love to bake) Came home and quickly cooked corn and carrots. My family brought the cheesy scalloped potatoes, green beans, rolls, deviled eggs, and soda. We all pigged out and enjoyed each others company. This picture is of my sister Coleen holding her foster baby Angelic and my sister Rene' holding Mark. Baby Mark is one month older and he really likes playing with her. I think he was a bit envious of all her hair since he is a bit lacking in that department. There is nothing better than family. I love having my family over and I'm glad they all love me enough to make the drive out here. Next time I will have to do a George side dinner. Mark's sweet sister Mary Ann had a baby boy on Easter afternoon. I don't know all the details yet, but his name is Owen George Hill. I can't wait to meet the newest member of the family.
While I was "in the city" on Friday I got a long overdue pedicure. I'm fully aware that feet and toes are ugly and mine are no exception, but look at those cute flowers! Love them! Helps make ugly toes a little more bearable.




Here are a few more pictures of my house...actually its only the huge hallway that serves no purpose, but I like it anyways. Really it does have a purpose, because here is where you decide whether you want to go in the family room, scrapbook room, bathroom or upstairs. I put my potting bench that was on the front porch at the old house here. It's such a big space, it needed to have something there and it may as well be cute. In the first one you can see a sneak peak into the family room...and also that pile of boxes I still need to unpack. What I should show you is a picture of the garage and the amount of boxes out there waiting for me to unpack them. It's never ending......but I'll spare you my pain. :o)

Well I think I too am jealous of Angelic's hair, my 22 month old doesn't even have that much LOL. Mind you she is quite fair so I use that as her excuse for being "follicly challenged".

Loving the pictures of your house it looks so open and welcoming.

And your toes look fantastic! I truly have ugly feet ;-)

You have your rental SOOOOOOO CUTE!!! You need to give me ideas to decorate the baby's room in my rental. Something girly but not to much for my husbands sake.

Later
Nicole

ps
When Western was over he loved to get new clean socks. i would wash them before sending so they smelled like "home" and not new. Thought maybe chad would too. just a thought.
