Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day Mom!
I love my mother!  My Mom, who taught me all the important things in life by her daily actions: loving unconditionally, endless patience, loving Jesus, always making others feel welcome, living without judging others, and working hard without complaining! You make every day brighter (even in this white out we're in on Mother's Day) and I feel so blessed to call you Mom! I wish you were here to make snow ice cream with us! Have a great day and give Grandma a hug from me!

I guess the weather people were correct this time.  I think it snowed all night, I-80 is closed, church is cancelled, and Mitchell lost electricity!  I just hope it doesn't continue to snow until the winter warning expires at 6 pm!  We're all warm and enjoying the view!

This is when the snow first started after 3 inches of rain.

This is before bed with the snow bowl ready to catch some snow

This is when we woke up in the morning. 
I'll still take this over all the flooding and tornado's the other side of the state earlier in the week!

We had a great day playing in the snow!

Isaac's turn

Simba loved the snow, but Dinah wasn't so sure about the flying snow balls

The momma bird wasn't enjoying the snow very much either

Look at the size of those snow balls. 

Enjoying hot chocolate and hot apple cider

We also got Isaac's room clean!

and hung up the boys new signs

Brodie read his new book to us
It was a great mother's day!!

May Day!

We had lots of fun delivering baskets on May Day!

The boys were a little disappointed they didn't get any May Day baskets.  But then they got some in the mail from Grandpa and Grandma Buman and got some delivered the following day.  The boys were very happy!
Thank-you Grandpa and Grandma!!

Ice cream cone May Baskets!! 


The elementary school had a track day a couple of weeks ago and it was a fun day.  Brodie did the long jump, 55m, 100m, and 200m.  It was a lot of running because he made it to the finals of all the running events (the long jump didn't have a final).

Time to run!



Getting some Gatorade in between races

Brodie got braces on his top 4 teeth last week.  The dentist is trying to pull his top two middle teeth together so the side teeth come in.

Before braces:

We've already had to go back to the dentist after he knocked a bracket off.  Hopefully that will be the only time since he should only have them on for a short period of time.

The love of Jesus!

Isaac and I were just going about our usual routines yesterday.  I was cleaning up the dining room table and he was playing in the living room. He and I were having a conversation and I said to him, "Never forget that Mommy loves you and that Jesus loves you!"  Isaac says to me, "I could never forget that Jesus loves me.  He tells me every night!"

I hope that is always true!  I love Jesus and I sure love this family I have been blessed with!  I'm so thankful I get to have days where I can be with my boys all day.  I love these moments where I am forever blessed by them!

We had fun dyeing Easter eggs! 

We painted a few

and broke one
Here are the masterpieces

The boys had a scavenger hunt to find their Easter baskets on Easter morning.

There were still a little sleepy when they started the hunt

Reading the first clue

Looking for the next clue

We had a great morning at church and enjoyed some steaks on the grill tonight!    What a great day celebrating our risen savior!!
