Easter with a granddaughter

Well, we had our annual Easter Egg Hunt after church on Sunday. Living in Idaho, it is rare to have a nice day in the Spring, however, we beat the rain and it wasn't blowing, so we have no complaints.
K helped the goose find hers.
Tio Ricardo had to find his own.
Wes was thrilled to be invited to hunt this year.
C hid the eggs and had a great time watching.

She liked her Easter basket.
Thank you Miss Lizzie and Auntie D for the Bumbo. We put it to good use.

Wedding Day

Here are a few, okay, maybe a lot, of pictures from the wedding. They are in random order.This is at the reception, which was very nice.

Here is a picture of Rich with Grandma Hall. I think it is the only one.
Here is Todd being helpful.
The Cake
He looks pretty happy.
"Please don't leave me here"

We also shared a residence with him for many years.
Most asked question, "Where?" In Logan
Brian with Lucy.
A side of Todd we didn't see much of growing up.
Family....Rich was on his way.

Wedding Weekend

Here is just a sample of our weekend. I promise to post some more pictures, later.
Is this the funniest picture ever? l.s. took it and she knows the story, but I can't stop looking at it.

We went to Logan for a very lovely wedding. They both looked great!
We then had lunch and then off to Pocatello for a reception. I will not lie, I was so tired, everything hurt. The reception was extremely pretty....yeah, I just had to show up.
This is about the most we did on Saturday.
On Sunday we went to church and then had our annual egg hunt and then I took 100 pictures of the goose. I will post more of those later too.

Happy Easter Mother Duck!

I am so happy that someone in the family is taking care of things. I often get asked questions about Todd and Katelyn and I have no idea. Here are answers to most of the questions I get. As in,
What is Katelyn's major?
Where is Todd doing his internship?
When are they graduating?
Here are all the answers, no thanks to me, but thanks to Katelyn's mother. We are looking forward to the wedding and having Katelyn in our family.

Windy Day

I went outside to try and take a picture of Todd and Katelyn's quilt. What can I say? If you live in Idaho, you have to love the wind.

White April

We woke up to snow 3 days in a row this week. It is amazing to me that something that is so pretty and peaceful in January is awful and makes everyone cranky in April. I also finished this project this week. I have been working on this dress for a friend of ls. This is her wedding dress. It is so simple, and yet so pretty. I will also throw a plug in for modesty too.
I have enjoyed working on it. I will put up a picture with her in it when she gets married in May.

I love quilt shows!

I love to go to quilt shows. They are so inspiring. I am always disapointed that they only have a quilt show in Twin every other year. Here are some photos. I hope you enjoy it.This is Mary from our group. This is the first thing she has ever sewn. It is beautiful.
This is cute. I have no desire to make it, but I really want to learn to 'turn needle appliqué'.
I loved the quilts with flowers on them. Could very well be that we have none to look at outside yet.
This one is adorable.

Norma from our quilt group made this Stack and Whack.
I love this pink. Very fun.

And more flowers.
