My Kind of Weather!

This is my kind of weather!!! Today I hung laundry out and as soon as I'd come out with the next load to hang the first load was dry!!! It was breezy but warm...I love it!!
We worked on mulching the flower beds....Shalen & Alyssa had worked on the garden boxes earlier in the day!!

Here is Bree -- She should be having puppies soon.....cockapoos! She is a bit hot in this pic!

And finally -- one of the wonderful things that I enjoy during the warm weather....Homemade Leomonade!! YUM

Busy Weekend

First -- we try to get a picture of Clayton with this tree every year. Papal & Grandma Spangler bought this when he was born...looks like the tree is taller!!! but not by far.

Friday evening we went to a Jaime Slocum concert (free will offering) -- sorry the pictures aren't very good -- we used Alyssa's camera and it wasn't doing very well with the lighting. We were able to purchase his new CD that is due out until Tuesday!!! Yeah, not too much earlier but we now don't have to wait around. Clayton will sometimes go to his room and sing "VERY LOUDLY" to some of these songs. I really love hearing him sing! My brother-in-law & family ( Wes, Vic & Ryan) went along, as well as a couple friends that the kids invited. Afterwards we went out for pizza and just had a great family time!
We were able to get on the 4th it was a nice time.

Saturday the girls wanted to go to Margeaux's violin recital. Margeaux is the one who has been giving the girls violin lessons for the past 2 years. She is graduating from Susq. University and will be going to grad school - so they will be having a new teacher. She is the sweetest thing and the girls really love her as a teacher. Maybe Alyssa will be able to put a video clip on soon so you can hear how great of a violinist she is.

F-16 Fighting Falcon

The Selinsgrove mall had an F-16 Fighting Falcon on display. Clayton wanted to make sure he got the chance to stop by and check it out. They had a display with a 3 1/2 min. video on all of the things that the air force does. Then they had a video game so that the kids could practice flying and if you were really brave you could try out the defibulator (did I spell that right??) Anyway, Clayton enjoyed the visit!

Easter Sunday

Reeses eggs -- a MUST for me!!!!

Alyssa loves to eat hard peeps. As soon as she gets em she'll open the package and let them sit out for a couple days before she eats em. YUCK!

Steve is in the background -- eating his Reesee peanutbutter egg!!!

My kids got a little bit of candy and then they got several small gifts. The girls received a skirt and scrapbook paper. Clayton wanted some oil paints and paper/brushes and such. We did have an Easter egg hunt. But we do our best to focus on the resurrection instead of the bunny. Throughout the week we went through the "resurrection eggs" (you get a plastic egg with a small item in it along with a scripture verse. Read the verse and the small item in it pertains to that verse. For example....there was small cross, angel, purple robe etc in each egg) Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

May you have a blessed Easter!

Wishing you all a Christ filled Easter. May you treasure your family and friends and take lots of pics so you can scrapbook!!!! And REMEMBER, the REAL reason we are celebrating this holiday!

"He is not here, he has risen just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay." Matt. 28:6

Traveling Meal

This past Saturday our youth group gathered together and went on a Traveling meal. The first stop was in Beavertown at Stevie's house for some "hors doeuvres" that his mom made up for the crew. Next stop - The Maloyds for soup then off to Merle and Melissa's for salad. They then went to Doug and Sarahs for Lasagna and all the goodies to go with the main part of the meal. Last stop was our place for dessert, games and fun.

A crew decided to try the piano out and sing to all of us!!!! Love Julias facial expression!
Cayden came along and had fun watching the volleyball game.
Had a few games of Blockus going -- these were the smarter people who stayed inside where it was warmer!!!

Some decided to try out the tire swing. (yes, that is Alyssa on the tire!)

While lots of em played volleyball.
Once it turned dark they had a game of man hunt outside. Must admit that it was cold and windy yesterday.

Some stayed inside and went to the basement for some air hockey.
We ended the evening with several games of Mafia.....a youth group favorite. If you haven't played this game -- well, lets just say it can get VERY loud but fun.
When they left Clayton made a comment that it was quiet in the house!!! I think we had 16 youth and then the chaps so we did have a good turn out. Lots of games going on and laughs!!! As well as tons of energy -- oh, I wish I had that much energy!

April Fools

In 1957 the jokesters at BBC, ran a segment on the coming of spring after a mild winter and what that meant for Swiss farmers. The answer? An unusually large spaghetti crop. According to the Museum of Hoaxes, "Huge numbers of viewers were taken in. Many called the BBC wanting to know how they could grow their own spaghetti tree. To this the BBC diplomatically replied, 'place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best.'"
