After lunch, Jon and I work on some projects in our yard. I stayed outside working until after 4.
Then Jon went and picked up dinner for us. No Cooking!
On Sunday we celebrated at my Mom and Dad's. Mom made me peanut butter pies instead of cake. Thanks Mom!
What a happy weekend! The best part was that no one got sick the whole weekend.

Isaiah has been nicknamed "Wrecking Ball" because since he was 1 he has been a very rough and physical boy. He will tackle you with a hug, knock you down to show you how much he loves you or give you a hardy shove to say "thanks for playing." When he is actually wrestling, there is no mercy. When he plays football, he will take down even his own Mom. And a bloody knee from trying to get a loose ball faster than Jonah in a game of basketball is not uncommon.
You get the point?
So we figured a broken arm was in his future. We just didn't think he would break his hand getting dressed. Walking out of his room on Friday morning, he hit his hand on his dresser. He must have hit it just right because he fractured the bone in his hand that connects the pinkie to the wrist.
So now he is in a cast for 4-6 weeks (we will find out Monday when we head to the Orthopedist), but that hasn't slowed him down. I caught him today playing catch with Dad.
Cathching is now a little harder and more awkward.
And learning to throw left handed is a whole new ball game.
I will keep you posted on his healing.

A bunch of cousins and uncles and friends came too. Front row from left to right: Josh Cook, JR, Lou, and Philip.
This was very exciting for Malachi--he loves baseball.

We celebrated Easter with a glorious 2 1/2 hour worship service and then dinner at Mom and Dad's. It is our family tradition to take a Easter picture...so here you go.
The day was beautiful and the kids were able to play outside for most of the afternoon. Of course all this play outside led to two bloody lips (Isaiah and Malachi) and two bad scrapes from playing in the woods (Jonah and Isaiah). Oh my life with boys.
My cousin Harry's (who is in Iraq) wife and kids were able to spend Easter with us as well. It was a fun, relaxing afternoon and we are very thankful to have so much family close by.
Got to tell one story though: We put Malachi in a pack-n-play in Mom's guest room so that he could nap. All of Ruth stuff for Africa was in there, as she is slowly making her final preparations for what she should put in her carry-on. When Malachi woke up a few hours later, Ruth went to get him. She found him with a handful of tissues trying to get a blue stain off the pillow, he looked at her and said, "Help me?" Somehow he had gotten out of the pack-n-play and onto the bed and found 3 Jolly Ranchers that Ruth was going to take in her carry on and eaten all 3. He must have fallen asleep on the guest room bed with a blue Jolly Rancher in his mouth and he drooled blue juice all over the pillow sham on the guest room bed. This is why we call him "Trouble."
