As good as it gets



Hope everyone had a great Easter - this picture is as good as we could get after church this last Sunday. Oh, and remember my ramblings on how to stretch out a holiday - yah well, I'm Eastered out - seriously, were four Easter egg hunts really necessary?...

What is it with moms and over-doing things - I have learned my lesson! I am not even going to tell the kids about our next holiday coming up - sure it is Confederate Memorial Day, but I think instead of going to some sort of North vs. South re-enactment we will go out to lunch and sleep in.

I'm laughing at any of you who actually thought we would go to a North vs. South re-enactment. Although, I've heard they are quite entertaining....

Yeah, I've learned that simple is usually better. It's hard to remember, though, when we get caught up in the excitement of a holiday. I felt that way about Christmas last year. Enjoy your Confederate Memorial Day! :-) Lars, you remember, was an extra in a Civil War movie. He might like a good reenactment! :-)

Candi, did you know me and my family were re-enacters? Yes, my dear...we were. Did all the campout stuff, did the battles (I was a nurse helping the wounded), did the Virginia Reel at the dances and everything. I have some pictures somewhere to prove it too. :0)

hello~ you mean the war of northern agression? what are you teaching your children?
coincidentally, i am pretty sure confederate memorial day is also my birthday. and that is excuse enough right there to bust out a cake.

Oh My Goodness! Julia Karen is so old and cute and adorable. I want to come down and visit. Her smile just melts my heart. Seriously, you guys need to plan a trip to B'ham and I'll plan a trip to Montgomery. What are you doing for 4th of July Weekend?
