We had our annual egg hunt and Easter picnic on the Ponderosa last week end.  There was some really delicious food, competitive egg hunting and perfect weather.

Our hearts are broken.  On March 18 we lost our beloved Pa Lyle.  He made us all a better person.

it's me

We were in the Disney Store when Bailee began saying, "It's me,  It's me!"  A stack of princess dolls had caught her attention and one had red pig tails just like her!

Of course, her Nana made sure it went home with her!
