thanks Easter bunny!

for the miserable snotfilled, runny nose, achy back,watery eyes, scratchy throat, constant cough, and insane sinus headaches!!!

2 out of 3 of us woke up Sunday with it, and the little guy woke up to a snotcoverd face this morning!

but that didn't stop us from enjoying a rather brisk(but sunshiny) Easter celebration !

The bunny left a pile of carrots in our hallway... and then a messy trail of half eaten ones through the house leading to the prize!

Tatum and I suffered through a wonderful sermon on God's great love for us. My head was to
stuffed to sing( and not embarrass my self) and Tatum added her own comentary to the lesson with her 337 sneezes!!

We raced home, to get dinner started as I was hosting this year for my side of the family.

the table was set. the food mostly prepped.

my traditional lamb cake flopped(remember I have a cake biz???-actually it didn't come out of the pan very well this time... so glad it happened for family!), so we sliced it up and I made a trifle with fruit and pudding, etc. It was totally delish.. and pretty too . great idea honey!

my mom brought yummy ham and my favorite creamy corn/cheese dish.

I made several other things including some addicting garlic cheese biscuits.

all of this and I never even ate Easter dinner!! LOL

after things were served, and Tatum was fed... I curled up on the couch with a grand supply of kleenex!!

the bunny did leave eggs and Brigham had a blast running around picking them up! My brother .. aka Uncle Monkey brought him a very fitting

'monkey basket'.

and here is our sickly girl.. still trying to be happy.

I'll have to take some more pics later b/c she was wearing MY old dress!!
I hope you all had great celebrations.
I saw this and thought it was totally cool.
what great witnesses they are.

may the luck of the irish be to ya'

tatum is a bit shy about bringing it to ya'

and here is the Brigman acting a bit o 'crazy

the kids and I celebrated at Chick filet for lunch with several moms from Lifegroup at our new church.

Have I mentioned how absolutely awesome our new church is?? Its a vineyard church and it toally rocks. seriously.

and then I made an irish meal for us.. and for our friends who just had a baby girl 9 days ago.

irish soda bread... totally delish.. shepard's pie and green salad.

for dessert I made key lime picture b/c they're all gone!!

we all wore green, and had green plates and green milk!

its just the little things that make a day special!

here's hoping that you found some luck today!

rocky mountain high

well, we're not technically in the Rockies, but we do have a fantastic view of them!
seriously, so gorgeous. its been bright blue skies and amazing sunshine since we got here.

the kids were incredible on the flight... I don't think Tatum realized she was not on my lap in the living room! and Brigham LOVED the tv in the plane. He was mezmorized by Dora and Spongebob(two shows, that he has actually never seen before!). Perhaps that was what made the trip so enjoyable. Five dollars , certainly worth it!

So we are trying to pack a lot in to the vaca.. but its been nice to lounge around too, and not look around and see the zillion things that I would have to do at home!

The Brigmiester and Miss T are certainly soaking up lots of attention from the grandparents!

and as I type this, the news is informing me that the midwest is experiencing blizzard conditions.
ahhhhhhh... so happy I'm here. it just might suck me in!!
its such a happy place.

on another note... any AI and LOST fans out there????
I am still rooting for my man Michael Johns. I seriously would be a groupie. He so rocks.
(my former boyfriend- eerily look a like, was kicked off,(jason yeager) or I would have had him at the top!)yeah, it was like soooo incredibly crazy how much he looked like a guy a dated!
we lost two out of three home town kids(amy davis, and luke menard) are from about 40 minutes away from us. Local Amanda Overmyer is still in it. She is actually just around the corner from us. She is definately a rocker.. we'll see if America wants that type as their idol.
so happy that danny was voted off.. I don't think I could have taken another night of his head sways or 'ish'..
and Losties... it just keeps getting better doesn't it? .loving the flashforwards and the addition of characters. I am bummed that claire doesn't make it.any thoughts?//

I have been a slacker once again at blogging, I had wanted to share pics from our mini vaca in Indianapolis last weekend. Hopefully I can get them all edited and post them next week.
I may try and update with Colorado pics, before we get home... we'll see how the week goes!
hope you're all having a great weekend!
