Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.

Annual picture by the birdhouse-trying to get one every year so we can see how much she grows! Ta made her beautiful dress-isn’t it gorgeous? Thanks, Ta!
Jack’s first birdhouse picture. Jake told me all day long that he couldn’t believe I put our son in a dress. 😛 It’s a gown!!
I was DETERMINED to get a picture of all four of us-the only one we have is the one in the hospital. We had to settle for sunroom pictures because of the storm. I love Josie’s expression in this one…
Indoor egg hunt…
Side crunches-50 per side
Various other ab/leg exercises
-I wasn’t going to do anything today, but I ate like a pig, plus I was super sore from yesterday, so I need to work some of that soreness out!
I always feel so much better after I work out-I MUST remember that….
This morning Josie, Jack, and I went to the Link for Life 5K. It was to benefit a little 7 month old boy who just had a liver transplant (and the living donor was his mom!). I had originally just planned to walk with my mom, Shshr, Ta, and Lesa, but when I got there I was really itching to run. I hadn’t run a whole 3 miles since before pregnancy and bedrest, but I really was ready to try. So Mom wore Jack in the Moby for me so I could run it with Daddy and Chad. I was SO proud of myself-I ran almost the entire thing, except for the killer hill towards the end (and I ran a little bit of the hill, just not the whole thing!). My final time was 35 ½ minutes, which I was very happy with it! Even when I am in my best shape, my best times are only around 28 minutes-so 35 is not too shabby! I am so glad I am getting back in shape :).
Jack and Grammy 🙂
Josie was so excited that all of her “tids” were there!
I didn’t realize until I got done that I ran the entire race in my glasses!
Really was good! We had our annual cookout and egg hunt with Jake’s family at our house. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and the kids had a blast looking for eggs that were very well hidden by Jake and Mee-Maw. We had some awesome grilled burgers and hotdogs, and then Jake played hide and seek outside with the kids-they LOVE playing with him :).
And of course, no post would be complete without the pictures…
Pretty Katie 🙂
Still looking hard for the one last egg….
Matthew just observed the hunting….
Annual cousins shot-it keeps getting bigger every year!!
The Easter Bunny even came to visit…
Jack slept like a champ last night!! He put himself to sleep in his bed around 8:00, and didn’t wake up for the first time until 4:15! That’s about an 8 hour stretch-woo hoo!
