Home for the Weekend

Mike had to work all weekend at the golf course, so Walker and I loaded up the car and headed to Roxboro Friday to spend the weekend with my family. Our weekend consisted of two easter egg hunts, one afternoon fishing (zero fish caught), six adorable little chicks, countless dragons and one beautiful Easter Sunday!


Friday night we went to see How to Train Your Dragon, and I loved it. I really wasn't too excited about seeing it, but so glad I did. The music was beautiful, the story was sweet and I just wanted to pick one of those cute little dragons up and cuddle with it.

Then Saturday we went to a church egg hunt and spent the afternoon and evening at my dad's house and then  my sister's house. We fished, played Rock Band (I'm actually not too bad at drums and vocals) and my sister brought home these cuties for Easter! My mom said growing up they used to get baby chicks for Easter that were colored pink and blue and purple - but they stopped doing that because it was actualy bad for the chicks. My sister is going to put the ducks on her pond and I hope she will keep the chickens and sell the eggs! My aunt has several chickens and she can't keep the fresh eggs in stock because people are buying them up so fast!


Sunday, we woke up VERY early and attended sunrise service and witnessed a special baptism - what a great day to be baptized! And of course the Easter bunny came!


Then we had regular church and went back to my mom's house for a huge lunch my mom cooked (sooooo yummmy!) and another egg hunt. Look at the intense look on these faces, they weren't kiddin.


My little guy was so tired after the busy weekend and he actually fell asleep on the drive home.


Hope you had a wonderful Easter too! Now, back to work!

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from. has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards.

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
