Just hoppin' through....

Hey, Kelly, Kelly, Lindsey, and Christopher! Happy Easter. I hope you like your surprises I left for you. Miss Kelly, your gift from me is that I took a picture (since your camera was sitting on the kitchen table) and added this post to your blog (I know everything, like how to access it). I'm certain that Lindsey is going to love her new Tommy Hilfiger purse, since she showed it to you last week when the two of you were shopping, but it was too expensive (money's no object for me, the Easter Bunny). Christopher seems to be really moving around a lot lately on the track, the treadmill, and his bicycle, so I thought he might enjoy a new Razor scooter. Mr. Kelly, why don't you go ahead and buy that new camera lens for yourself, on me. I've got a lot more people to see....so I better make this quick. Oh, I grabbed a carrot on the way out. Thank you. Have a wonderful day!

We decorated hard-boiled eggs today and I made egg salad sandwiches for lunch--I baked the bread too, using freshly ground red wheat from my food storage. Fun times! The kids are excited to have an Easter egg hunt. I like using real eggs for it.

What a cute post from the Easter Bunny! I love it! He was very good to y'all! And you gotta love that money is no object with the Easter Bunny...and Santa Claus! :) I even hear from a few of my friends that the Tooth Fairy is getting more generous. Especially when the dads are in charge of things that evening. ;)

I love it E.b. can you please stop by my house too.

Ha! That was me that pointed out the Tooth Fairy was being more generous. I only got a quarter when I lost teeth, and here Brinley is, making a whopping dollar. It's criminal, I say.
The easter bunny treated you guys right this year! I loved seeing Lindsay using her new purse at church!!
Holly said…
Glad you had a happy Easter. I'm excited to see you soon. Keep up the fun posts! :)

Wow the easter bunny even takes care of the blog. Now that is a great idea. I think that I am going to start expecting more from our holiday gift givers. It sure looks like everyone go something that they would love.
Ah Ha! That explains the camera store question from Mr. Kelly on Sunday. What lens is he going to get?
The E.B. was very good to you this year!
The E.B. "forgot" to come to our house. I think he was too busy getting ready for a talk in church the next day, too...
You are the cutest. You make things so much fun for your family.

Boy, the Easter Bunny sure likes you guys! I'm thinking there must be more than one Easter Bunny, because the one that came to your house sure doesn't come to OUR house ;)

Wow, I think the Easter Bunny must have a rating system on who gets both candy AND gifts. We must have rated low here because we didn't see any Razor scooters or camera lenses! But I sure enjoyed the Daim candy he loaded in some of the eggs. AHH YEA!

I still love the whole egg decorating ritual. Helping the grandchildren means I don't really do any myself, but it is great fun facilitating their creative efforts.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
