with baited breath

I am an optimist...but I THINK SPRING MAY BE HERE TO STAY!  Last night as we were driving home from a wonderful Easter celebration with the Blomgren family I realized just how much longer daylight is sticking around!  The sun was up pretty high in the sky at 7pm! 

The weekend was fantastic with Mom, Dad, Kent, Abby, Kurt, Jenna, Vance, Stuart, Ross, Kyle, Kim, Kyle, Adam, Liana, Ryan, Tatum, Cory, Joan, Thomas, Evan, Trenton, Karen, Brad, Anders, Kathryn and Osten all enjoyed egg decorating, pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, saurkraut, cookie salad, sugar cookies, ramen salad and bunny cake and spending time together.  Each grandchild received a presidential dollar and each family received their respective Easter basket, a deck of butterfly playing cards and "spinner" dominos. 

Anders received a new Twins shirt, some cool baseball erasers, shorts and tshirt, sunblock, swimming goggles and candy--he easily found his basket after starting the quest at 5:30am

Kathryn received a sunflower dress for herself and her doll, some cool unicorn erasers, a scandanavian paper doll book, swimming goggles and candy--she faced more difficulty in finding her basket and had a small meltdown until cousin Abby and brother Anders helped her find her basket behind Grandma and Grandpa's bathroom door.

Osten received graham crackers, rusk, a reusable snack bag, yogurt bites and three small play animals--pony, kangaroo and turtle--he showed no interest in searching for his basket, but it wasn't hidden, so all was well with the world. 

Happy SPRING and here is to many more Easter celebrations with loved ones--celebrating the risen LORD!
