Our special friends--David, Annette, Austin and Emily Marcum came for a weekend visit! We so treasured every moment! God has blessed us with "forever" friendships that originated many years ago! Nett and I talked, talked and talked(while the guys were extremely goofy! ha!).The kids played nonstop( I think they are making forever friendships, too!). Friday evening, my parents and my brother's family stopped by for coffee and dessert....Nate serenaded us with his beautiful guitar playing! (They have all loved Nett since I first brought her home from G.B.S.!) After a leisurely brunch on Saturday, we went to the IMAX and saw "Hurricane on the Bayou". It was a rather moving experience! We also shopped for Colt's gear since Austin is a big Colt's fan! We were "treated" to dinner at "On the Border"!(Thanks guys..it was delicious!) We so enjoyed our time together! We love ya'll! Thanks for coming!

Easter is such a beautiful time to reflect on all that Jesus has done for us...It is a time of worship and praise to God for sending His Son to die on the cross for our sins. It is also a time of glorious hope for... He is risen! A time to celebrate...to worship as a church family through beautiful songs and the glorious message of the risen Christ AND a time to enjoy family. After church we gathered as a family to eat at Mamaw Smith's house...lunch was delicious! Thought I would share my pictures! Hope all of my blogging friends had a great Easter!

This past weekend we had family guests from WV[Dan and Becky(Danny's sister),and their three children...Joey, Jenna and Jacob]. We had such great QT! Danny has four siblings and we always enjoy family reunions, but it is so fun to have "one-on-one" time with each family. Dan, Becky, Danny and I were able to "catch up" on great conversation and alot of good laughs. Fun for the kids included an Easter egg hunt at the Gaither's studio(there was a really cool Christian magician/balloon artist there, too), pizza at Ben and Arie's(a game restaurant)and just being together. We also tried out some new recipes... AND got off our diets a bit!(smile) Thanks for coming, guys! We love you! God has blessed us with wonderful family!

A couple of weeks ago Danny came home at lunch and we headed out for an afternoon fieldtrip to downtown Indy...We visited the State Museum and had a great time! Corey has been studying about state history and so this was very beneficial to him, but Cassie and Cade really enjoyed it also! We browsed through the museum, watched a couple of movies, had a midafternoon snack of buttery popcorn and pop from the snack stand(SO bad for my diet! ha!), and bought souveniers at the gift shop. We really had a fun family day! Then, last Saturday was Corey and Cassie's Spring Piano Recital... Corey played "Firefly Fandango" and Cass played "Something's Under My Bed".(Dressy attire was required MUCH to Corey's dismay...a suit on Sat.? Cassie on the other hand loves to get dressed up...any day of the week! Typical male and female perspectives...I guess!) Thought that I would share my pictures...
