Happy Easter!

(a day late)

We hosted our first Easter dinner and egg hunt at our new house this year. I admit it was a little crazy and ambitious on our part since we only moved in five days before, but it was worth it. It forced us to get our new house in some sort of order, plus we had lots of fun coloring 48 eggs, making up Easter baskets, and grilling two legs of lamb (yummy!).

We are still moving into our house and unpacking boxes, but we already love being here. It is going to be an incredible house and neighborhood for both Jamie and Clare. Jamie has already discovered how much fun it is living on a cul-de-sac because now he can ride his tricycle in the street instead of just up and down the driveway. Shawn put the swingset up on Saturday, and Clare got her first real taste of swinging. She's been in the swing at the playground before, but those swings are too big for our little peanut. To say Clare enjoyed the baby swing is a huge understatement. The minute she sees the swing, she starts grinning from ear to ear. When I put her in it for the first time on Saturday, she started laughing. Laughing out loud! We have not really heard her laugh since she started a couple weeks ago. What a sweet sound!

What a percious photo! Clare is such a beautiful little girl, and Jamie looks more like Daddy all the time! It was fun to hear all about the new home, and all of it's qualities. May Spring bring new and exciting things for both kids! love ya, Joan
