Hello!

Happy Easter Friends...

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend and Resurrection Sunday.

We had a great weekend here in the La Vida House.

We had an Easter egg hunt in the front yard; went to church with our NC church family; came home and went for a very long walk in the cool spring air (and yellow pine pollen); grilled steak; sipped Merlot; played Clue; Skyped with our Arizona peeps; The Girl made beautiful ice cream sundae's (complete with whipped cream, cherries and sprinkles); and then we tucked ourselves into bed for an awesome nights sleep.

Such a beautiful day.

I am happy to be back to blogging again. Last week was amazingly hard! It was really tough not being able to read your blogs or post my own. Really tough.

I am so happy that this week we are on Spring Break, because I have over 300 blog posts that are ready to be read!

I am posting pictures of the kids from our last NC Easter, exactly three years ago. We had no idea that between that year and this our lives would include two cross country moves. The first to Arizona, and the second, moving back! The kids have grown!


Happy Monday friends!

You have the sweetest kids! So glad you are back amongst the rest of us heathens that weren't off last week.

Welcome back! your kids are adorable, and I'm jealous of the melanin in their skin. My mother had beautiful dark skin (thanks to our Amer.Ind.ancestry). I however, skipped that generation of goodness.

Glad you're back, and glad to hear you had a great Easter.

Your kids are so cute! Enjoy your spring break.

I loved the picture comparisons. A lot sure happened in three years! Makes you wonder what God has in store for the next three, doesn't it?

Love seeing the pics from 3 years ago and comparing them to now.

Glad you had a wonderful Easter.

I have taken a few days off blogging but have still been reading and commenting!

I'm just dripping in sap over here--all "awwww" and gooey over how big they've gotten. So I can imagine how those pictures must make *you* feel. I think it's so cool that you moved back to the same house so that you can take the pictures in the exact same spots and compare the changes.

Your day sounds like it was lovely!

Gracious! It was HARD to be without you all that time!!!!

Sounds like y'all had just an awesome day!

Sweet, sweet pics! My how they've grown!

I love to look at past and present pictures side by side! They have grown-- and I think it is neat that you guys ended up at that same house again! Glad you had a good Easter and awesome that you took a break for it!

I'm so glad you're back. It sounds like you all had a wonderful Easter. Your kids are precious and. . . my. . . . they have grown!!!

Your children are BEAUTIFUL. I loved the comparison pics.

I was thinking that your yellow pollen is sorta like snow here. If I remember correctly, it is often so thick that it coats cars, driveways, lawn furniture and anything else left outside. See? Snow. It makes me feel better to know that you have a southern version of it on Easter.

Wow, your kiddos have grown up so much!
