annual easter camp 2011

We went camping once again for Easter. The first night was great! The 2nd night it stormed a little but it wasn't bad. But we did think it was going to get bad & a tree limb fell on Shannon's brothers tent with there baby inside. It was a huge limb & it landed about 6 inches from his head. Thankfully he was okay but it did put a hole in the tent.
Dedo, Piper, & Michael eatin some cereal.
Went fishing but didn't catch anything. It was still alot of fun though.
 Played some volleyball. My team was the champions. I had me, Scott, Tessa, Trevor,

 Piper & her daddy fishing. So sweet. Piper's 1st time to fish. She just reeled it in. Fish were not biting this day.
 Coloring eggs

 Thrown in the river: Every year if there is someone new come along my family "welcomes" them by throwing them in the river.
Here is uncle Danny & uncle Windale throwing Tut in.
 HILARIOUS!
 Mom & Grandma! My grandma Faye is a mess! I just love her!

 Nicole about to get thrown in.
 There she goes! :)
 How sweet! Nicole trying to give Hank a (wet) hug!
My brothers, Hank & Alex

Michael Wayne & Landon fishing.

 Egg Hunt:
We had a TON of eggs hidden this year.
 This cracks me up! Piper was so sleepy!
 The best I could get of the cousins :)
 I can't forget to tell you that Piper DID NOT want to pick up the boy colored eggs. I had to make her! She found 24 eggs total!
 Garrett Wade!
 Sweet Landon!
 Mimi & Michael Wayne :)
SO thankful for my family! Another great year of camping & another year of fighting the bad weather. It wasn't bad though & we are glad we went :)

My brother is getting married!!

I am so excited! My brother Hank & Nicole are getting married! She was one of my good friends in school & they started dating back in November. He asked her this wknd. We are so excited!
The set date is October 8, 2011! 

Gone public

I have gone "public" again. ..........For now. I have my reasons. I am not reading anyone else's blog for now. I have my reasons for that too. That was really the main reason for it. Things I am dealing with. No big deal. Just best for me.

Have a great one!
Sure wish this weather would quit getting bad. Tired of these tornados!

Easter at Mrs. Beckys!

"But He is not here. He has risen from death as He said He would." Matt 28:6
Resurrection Rolls: This is really neat. I got to give an example of Jesus' resurrection. The kids loved it!
The tomb is empty. He has risen!!!
We did lots of easter activities.
Ellery got a hat since she is not quite old enough to hunt eggs.
Easter egg hunt! This took probably 2 minutes. It was cold outside.
Piper, Dean, & Cooper ran for the eggs. I was running to try & get Jasper some b/c he wasn't getting them. So I did not get many pictures.
HAPPY EASTER!!!
