Student Art Show

As I have mentioned before, the kids enjoyed their own separate art classes this Spring in Huntsville.  Emma loved the Masterpiece in one class for kids.  At each class she was able to complete an entire canvas project to bring home.  Owen and I have one more week of Mommy & Me class.  He has enjoyed exploring with oil pastels, water color paint and more!  This evening we attended the student art show and some of their finished products were proudly displayed!  

I'm sure proud of my two aspiring artists :)

Bluebonnets 2013

For several weeks now I have been meaning to take the kids' annual bluebonnet pictures.  I'm lucky they stuck around so long!  I bribed the kids with Olive Garden and treats from the Target dollar section.  Enjoy!!    :)

I can totally hear her laugh in this pic....

Emma's pose idea :)

Silly faces..

Emma the artist

Emma is extremely creative and artistic.  She always has been and it is simply part of who she is!  She loves to keep busy with new ideas and projects!  When I heard about an art class offered for her age at The Wynne Home in Huntsville I just knew it would be right up her alley!  She enjoyed it and created a beautiful masterpiece! She is already looking forward to attending again next week :)

An East Texas Easter

Owen sure loves his Resurrection Eggs!  For weeks leading up to Easter he wanted to do them, usually several times each day!  I'm so glad that he is eager to learn and share about Jesus.  I'm also thankful that he understands the real importance of Easter :)  He especially loved to skip to the very last (white) egg.  Of course it is empty resembling the tomb.  Owen always smiles big and says "There's nothing here.  Jesus is alive"!  Our children's church leader says he raises his hand in response to questions and his answer is always "Jesus died on the cross for our sins!"  

We started Easter weekend with a day full of parties!!  The kids both enjoyed egg hunts and special treats at their schools.  

My special "somebunnies" :) 

Easter morning their baskets were filled with fun!

We weren't able to travel back to central Texas so soon after Spring Break but we really enjoyed and appreciated a visit from Big Daddy & Lita :)

Headed to church!!


My handsome guys in pink :)

After a quick Spring shower the kiddos enjoyed a fun egg hunt!

Hooray for a Spider man egg!

"He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart."

~He Lives
