Easter Egg Thief

I found the egg, and I'm not going to let go of it! 
Where did you get all those eggs, Char?
 Jacob, you have more, too.
 Well, now I'm mad and I'm going to throw yours on the ground.
 Back in order finally for a photo!

Training Wheels - Be Gone!

We took Jenna's training wheels off her bike Friday.  She and Jamie worked yesterday afternoon.  Only one little scraped knee.

The Resurrection

He is risen, indeed!

A Guys' Birthday

 We celebrated my "big guys'" birthdays yesterday.  Since they LOVE cars, a friend designed a special cake for them.  She did an awesome job!
Jacob will be 14 this Friday, and Jamie is...another year older.  :)
 Happy birthday, honey!  Love you!

Jacob's Recital Song: Saber Dance

Charlie's Recital Song: Symphony No. 1

Jenna's Recital Song: The Train Song

There's chatter in Jenna's video because I had to redo it.  I pushed the wrong button during her actual performance.

Amarin's Recital Song: Pachelbel Canon

The Piano Recital

Tonight was the first time all four kids played in a piano recital.
They were ready!
They arrived a little early so they could practice.
Jenna was the first of them to play.  She played a simple tune called The Train Song
and with her big smile.
Charlie was next, and appeared so casual about the whole thing.  His song was Symphony No. 1.
Amarin had the longest song, Pachelbel Canon.  It was beautiful.
Jacob had, by far, the fastest song, Saber Dance.  It is a fast one to begin with, but add a little nervousness, and it was downright speedy.
Here they are with their teacher, Mrs. B.
 She is our pastor's wife, and the piano player at our church.
She is phenomenal, and I love her southern gospel style!
And let's not forget the best audience member ever...Miss Laura!
She may clap in the middle of the performance, but she just loves the music!
Most important, they did their best and had a fun time.
