Spring time snow

It is the end of March and it is suppose to be spring. But here in Kansas the weather is never what it is suppose to be. We had a winter storm come thru. It started with sleet and then freezing rain and the snow! The top picture is when the freezing rain started. Some on the trees around here were drooping to the street because of the ice on the branches.
This is when it started to snow. We got a lot more snow then you see here. But today the weather was in 40's and the sun was shining so the snow is quickly melting away.

For Grandma & Grandpa Jones


Here are some recent photos of some of the grand kids for Grandma and Grandpa Jones. We missed you guys being at the birthday party. But know that you both were not forgotten! We love you guys!!

Michael's 1st birthday: cake!

We are all signing happy birthday to Michael! And waiting for the candle to blown out!
Time to dig into the cake!

He really like the cake and the frosting. He wanted more after this was demolished!

Happy 1st Birthday Michael!!

Michael's 1st birthday: games & gifts

Here is Michael playing pin the beak on the duck. He did get a little help from his mom!
Michael sitting on the duck. We were playing a game where you tossed the hoola hoop over the duck. The younger kids had fun throwing the hoop.

It was time to open the gifts! I think Michael had more fun with the packages than the actual toy.

This train was the only toy he seemed interested in. Once he open this one the other gifts were not of any importance anymore.

New camping gear

We bought Daniel and Dan new sleeping bags. Daniel needed one for scouts. The scouts go camping every month and Daniel was pretty cold last month! So we got him a sleeping bag for cold weather. Of course Dan got himself one too! Now the two are planning a camp out very soon. I'll stay home and sleep in my bed!
"What's up!!"

Here is Daniel trying out his new sleeping bag. He was very excited to get one. He also got a new backpack to use and straps so he can carry his sleeping bag under his backpack. Thanks Dad for using your gift cards that you worked hard for! Your a great Dad :)

Flowers and an Angel

Yesterday would have been my mother-in-law's birthday. On her birthday ever since she past away we buy yellow flowers in honor of her. Yellow was her favorite color and I think yellow fits her perfectly. She was always bright and happy and everyone was a little more cheery when she walked in the room.

And this is the Angel with the flowers! Deirdre would always call Daniel her Angel from Heaven!
Happy Birthday Deirdre!!
