My grandfather turned 90 at the end of March. My grandma's 85th birthday was just 10 days later, so we had one big party for both. I didn't take very many pictures, between helping and taking a nap in the middle of the party. My grandparents are in the above photo with the family tree quilt I made for Grandpa. (You can't tell from this photo, but the portraits of their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were stitched into the quilt.Picture of me with my brother and sister.

It RAINED almost our whole spring break, so we spent time painting pottery and at the Philbrook. The kids had a great time, but would have loved being outside, too.

On Tuesday, Christopher was able to cut his own pancakes. He was so excited that he waved his fork in the air as a bite went flying. Later, as I was washing the sticky off of his hands in the sink, he said that he wished he could wash dishes. Well, you CAN wash the dishes. (BTW, my dishwasher had been broken for a month, so all hand washing.) He was so excited to get to wash dishes, "Oh, Mommy, can you TEACH me to wash dishes?!" The floor and all of his clothing was soaked. "Can I wash the dishes AGAIN?" OH YES!
This morning, Ashlyn decided that Christopher should look like Abraham Lincoln. So, she did this:
It did wash right off, thank goodness!

I know that it has been awhile since I have posted. Even when I have the best of intentions, I don't seem to get around to blogging. We'll see if I can give you a few highlights, and then try to keep up a bit better. No promises.
