Happy Easter


What a day to rejoice. The day the grave couldn't hold HIM!!! We feel so blessed to know Jesus and are so thankful for the sacrifice that He made for us. We started Easter morning off by running around the house saying "He isn't there"!!! Then as we got ready for church we sang and danced around the house. Usually we don't dress up for church but since Easter is such a special day for us we got all dressed up!

All dressed and ready to go

Celebrating at church as a family

And here is a picture of me and one of my friends Bre. Her little girl Emma and Jaelyn are only 1 week apart. So happy first Easter girls.


Before nap time on Sunday Micah and Eben thought they would be super funny pretending to be the Easter bunny. Eben has NO idea who or what the Easter bunny is but he still thought it was really funny.

Nannies visit




Nannie came to town this week and it was so much fun. The first thing we did was try out Eben's new bike that he got!! He really loves his big boy bike and is really good at riding it; although it did take some getting use to for him.



The weather was very nice this week for getting to go outside and playing. Eben received a bag of hand me downs and in one of the bags was a black and gray hat that looks just like the one hubby wears all the time. Another piece of clothing to make Micah's mini me look even more like him! hehe


Nannie loves to take pictures so here is one of the kids just hanging out. Lady J is rockin her new jean jacket outfit...from Nannie of course.

Whats a visit with Nannie without some fun time at McDonalds play place. Eben had lots of fun playing in there with lots of other kids.

And Lady J was just happy to sit in the old school McDonalds chair and watch all the action. Nannie did try to give her a french fry but Mama noticed too fast and took it away.

Trip to Quebec




We had a wonderful vacation!!! It was full of great adventures, awesome memories, lots of laughs and lets not forget amazing food! We started our vacation by going dog sledding with my brother in law Ben. It was pretty much the funnest thing I have ever done.


Micah and Eben enjoyed a great ride together.


We got a lot of great video footage and I can't wait to see what kind of movie Micah comes up with. But for now here is a little movie trailer featuring some great clips of our adventure.

The next day we packed up the family and headed out to the sugar shack.



We don't have any movie put together of that yet but I can't wait to see what Micah comes up with for a movie. Last year when we were at the sugar shack we were closing down the shop by cleaning all the buckets this year they were still in the middle of production. We got to see the syrup being boiled down and canned. Then we enjoyed a delicious sugar shack meal before we headed out to collect the sap in the buckets.



When all the work was done we got a delicious treat of maple toffee.






While hanging out at Ben and Jo's the kids loved playing with their new kitten Bilbo



Not sure who Bilbo will miss more. Adventurous Eben or quite Jaelyn! hehehe

We spent our last night of vacation in Quebec city with good friends. It was our friend Sera's first visit to the city so we braved the snow and cold to take her to the old city to see the sites.



It was also the first time our friends Simon and Alex's little guy Theo got to meet Jaelyn.



Today we are trying to get back to our regular scheduled program!
