So things are a little crazy around here lately... which might be evident by the large number of posts that are nothing but pictures with a few random words stringing them together. School is wrapping up in the next three weeks, so I am in the mist of final papers, studying for exams, and getting everything in line for graduation (!!!), plus we have tball three times a week (THAT'S RIGHT) and SOMEONE is on the cusp of turning FIVE FREAKING YEARS OLD so we are birthday planning...Oh, and I am still in the six week recovery window for that hysterectomy, so I am in theory attempting to 'take it easy', whatever that means. (it means nothing beyond avoiding heavy lifting at this point).
So... basically this is a disclaimer that this blog will be picture heavy and writing light over the next few weeks. And sometimes (like today) I may throw two different sets of pictures up into one half-thought-out post, just to make sure they all make it into my life scrapbook of a blog. The upside is that I got that fancy new camera, so the pictures are pretty decent (pats self on back). The downside is that you wouldn't have nearly as many of my precious WOOOOORDS to enjoy. (the length of this random introduction may be evidence to the contrary...I love my words).
ANYWAY... PICTURES! Over the last two weekends we have had a couple of family gatherings. This past weekend we celebrated Easter at my parent's farm, and then the weekend before that we celebrated SEVEN family member's birthday at my father in laws house. If you are curious, there are like (counting..) fifteen people in this family, so having seven occur in the span of six weeks seems INSANE (but not statistically impossible). Anyway, see below for pictures of both events. We are so lucky to have such an amazing family!
Checking out how Henry measures up to Aunt Candice... this will now be an annual picture, and we will see how long it takes him to reach her!
Now on to Birthday Palooza! Now, if I was on my game I would lead off with a picture of everyone celebrating a birthday...but I didn't take that. (I am attempting more candid shots, but seem to have forgotten my bossy when it comes to forcing people to line up and smile... I will work on that.) So instead I give you...

It was a great Birthday party, a great Easter, and an amazing last couple of weekends!
