What a beautiful weekend!!

We had the most wonderful weekend. . .

Friday, we went down to the hospital to see Grandad. . .He was doing well. . .He even got to come home this weekend so we were able to spend Easter with him. . .Other than going down to see Grandad, we really did not do much! In fact, I think I went straight to bed when we got home. . .

Saturday was loads of fun! We went over to visit Chris, Heather, and Rees. Rees and Jackson had an Easter Egg Hunt. . . It was Jackson's first. They were so cute!! I can't wait for these boys to grow up together. They are just too stinkin' cute!
Jackson did not know what to think at first. He just picked up the eggs and looked at them.
But then. . .he got so excited about it. . . it was so cute. He ended up with a basket full. . . and he had so much fun!
Kurt and I really enjoy spending time with Heather and Chris, and it makes it so nice that Jackson and Rees are so close in age.

On Saturday night we had Kelly, Matt, and Ryan over for some grilling . . . It was so fun. . .Jackson was a little ham. . .He was so funny and he stayed up two hours past his bedtime. He and Matt and Ryan were all dancing to the hot dog song on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. . .It was SO funny . . .Dinner was yummy, too. Thanks, Kelly & Matt.

Sunday was great. . .we went to church . . .Jackson was such a good boy. . .Then we went to Grammy and Grandpa's for dinner. . . and it was yummy!! Jackson had another Easter Egg hunt. . .and again, he was too cute. . .but of course I think that. He got so excited when he would find another egg. . .

And just some fun photos from the weekend. . .
It was a great weekend. . .which is good because Jackson went to bed with a fever. . .and I have a feeling we will be staying home tomorrow . . . and we have to write a big FAT check for our car repairs tomorrow, too. Yuck! But it was a great weekend. . . so that makes it all okay! :) Happy Easter everyone!

7 Things and Picture Overload

This is for Andrea! Love you!

My 7 things. . .
1. I, too, LOVE pictures. . .I love looking at them (especially if they are of my little guy), and I treasure them so much. I have, unfortunately, lost several people in my life and without the photos that I have of them I would be lost.
Pictures have a way of making me forget about all the things I want to forget and helping me remember all of the wonderful people and wonderful times I have been blessed with in my life.
2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the sound of crunching leaves in the fall, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE crunchy french fries! Yummo!
3. I love singing karaoke! I have been blessed with a voice that has made people's heads turn and made bars go silent. I've won $1300 in karaoke contests (won the only two contests I have ever entered). When I am up there singing, I feel so good about myself. It is something that I know I do well, and I love the way it makes me feel (even though I am so nervous that all I can do is stare at the tv while I am singing). I'm not one who is too terribly confident in many things that I do so this is something that I look forward to doing. It helps that I am surrounded by such fun people when I'm singing karaoke!
5. I love beaches, the feeling of sand in my toes, and eating in open air restaurants by the beach.
6. I love live music. . . it doesn't really matter what kind of music. I just love listening to live music. . .love the atmosphere. . .
7. Finally, I love springtime. . .except when it is raining and SNOWING! I love the REAL springtime weather. . .when I can take my little guy for walks and see his face light up and his arms and legs go crazy because he loves being outside so much. . .Actually I love doing anything that allows me to hear his sweet little voice when he is excited about something.

Now, here is my picture overload. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! :)

Okay, now it just took me nearly two hours to upload those photos because my computer was acting up . . . Jackson and I were on Spring Break this week. We have to go back to work in the morning. . . boo!! We had pretty sucky weather this week, but we had a really good time! It was so nice spending so much time with him. He is at such a fun age. I am so looking forward to this summer, but I know that it is going to be SO hard to go back next year after spending so much time with Jackson. He is so amazing!! God has truly blessed Kurt and me with this little one!
