easter sunday after church at papa and oma essing's house. i was again reminded this morning that we are so lucky to live in a country where we have the freedom to go to church and worship with other believers. and i had my "proud mom" moment at lunch when justin asked to pray, and then proceeded to thank god for sending his son to die for us. even at the age of 5, he is starting to see that easter is not just about bunnies and candy.


ooops...forgot to take the ugly bibs off first. and trying to get a good pic of all three kids is like trying to keep your hair dry in a pool. it cannot be done.

can you believe these guys are 10 months old already! i was just about to give them a bath tonight and i thought i'd try to snap a quick pic of all three. well, that's always a joke, trying to get all three to look good at the same time. this is the best i could get of all three. brendan (on the left) is walking all over the house in his new walker. jordan (on the right) likes to just sit and think about it. he is in no hurry to do much. and justin (in the middle) has been having fun at school learning how to read and riding his new bike he got for christmas. we are busy remodeling some in our house so the little guys have a room of their own and getting ready to go to daytona beach for spring break in a few weeks. i'll keep you posted!

justin had "wacky" dress day at school today. claire was at our house today and helped justin pick out his "wacky" clothes. i love that he is such a free spirit and is not shy about dressing like this in front of his friends. i hope he keeps his good attitude of not caring what others think all the way through school. and i love how when he gets next to claire, all of a sudden he tries to look nice and normal. we sure do love claire at our house and are so glad to have her on wednesdays!


just another sunday at our house spent reading the paper. brendan decided to help me find all the coupons for the week. he was having so much fun!
