Celebrating with Family

Yesterday, for Easter Sunday, we went to my in-laws. We had a blast. The kids played in the pool, made mud pies, played football, went Egg hunting, and had some yummy food. I just hung out with the "big girls" and chatted. Ana was a little fussy. This was her first time at Mema's and Pop's house. She didn't have her bed there, so she wasn't settling to sleep very well. Most of the time she was held by one of the adults. Here are a few snap shots from yesterday:

(Here are the grandkids all but one...Ephee was getting his diaper changed)

(Ephraim didn't know what he was looking for!)

(Daddy, Tsavah, and Ana looking for eggs)

This is so cool isn't it. I love it when our family gets together. We have a gazillion grandkids in our family. There are almost 50 and 46 of them are under the age of 18!! We were just in CO with most of them and I put some pics on my blog of all the younger cousins that were there at the time. 16 under the age of 11. The pics are under my Colorado Trip label if you get a minute to stop by.

Mary is 3. And that's how it is with her too. If something is missing. Go ask Mary. And sometimes it's important things missing, like daddy's glasses, or something from my wallet, etc. But the funny thing is is that she remembers where she puts things. Thank goodness. Even if it's been missing a while before I notice it she still manages to remember!

Looks like you had a fun Easter. I've been trying to catch up on blogs, and boy you have been busy. I too love the MOTH system it's wonderful, the Maxwell's seem to really know what a mom needs.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was rushing...kids to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
