A few things

-We buy peanut butter by the huge bucket at Sam's.  You know the one I'm talking about.  It's as long as my torso.  Last week we got to the bottom of the bucket.  When Jack saw it he said, "Mom, it's like all the love has left our house."  Thankfully, we got more peanut butter. We can't lose all the love from our house.  
-Andrew was talking to someone at the soccer field the other day.  They asked him how old he was.  He said 4 and held up four fingers.  He then said, "when my thumb comes out on my next birfday I'll be five."  Sweet boy.
-My mom makes this delicious "salad" on holidays.  I use the word salad loosely.  It has whipped cream, marshmellows, jello and fruit.  She affectionately calls it Fluff.  Andrew loves it!  He asked for some this morning at 9:30.  I think fluff is a perfectly acceptable salad at this time of the day.  Plus, he told me it is delicious and yummy in his tummy.  How could I resist?!?
-Easter Sunday always proves to be exciting around here.  I don't know what it is about this particular Sunday, but by the time we all get to church I feel like I need a nap.  Fortunately, my Aunt Christie was here for the weekend to add an extra hand.  We had soccer games Saturday morning followed by a huge Easter Egg hunt that our church provided for our community.  It was a great Saturday!  Sunday morning we all went to church (Mimi, Tee and Christie, plus my family).  When we got to the house Mun and Janice were here.  Before lunch and the family egg hunt I decided we needed to take some family pictures.  Can you still hear the weeping and gnashing of teeth?!?  It was awful...according to my children.  Mercy.  What's so difficult about taking a picture??  Here they are...

 Maybe they do love each other?!?
 -This one below was snapped by a friend at church before we headed home for the above torture session...I kid....about the torture session, not that this was taken before we left church.  I've been doing Easter Sunday with this fella for about 17 years now.  If he wasn't my husband I'd wish that he was.  I love this guy.
-After lunch we headed to Fred and Renee's for a post lunch Easter celebration.  Why is this noteworthy?!?  Because we live in town and we can just pop over there if we want to.  Seems insignificant, but it's epic I tell you.
-Someone stole our basketball goal from our Paris house this week.  Stole it.  Out of our driveway.  They picked the wrong neighborhood to mess with.  I live near the most vigilant neighbors ever.  When our friend began to investigate the theft my neighbors already knew who did it and had driven by the house where it was taken to.  Wrong neighborhood, kid.  My Paris neighbors have our back even when we don't live there anymore!! ;-)
On a side note...our house is still for sale.  If you buy it you will get some of the best neighbors EVER!!
