Happy Easter!

Well, they've done quite a bit more on the house, as you can see from the pictures! JC and Courtney told us that once they get started, it goes really fast. They were right--let's hope they stay on this timeline. ;)

Had a pretty mellow weekend. I was off work on Friday, which was wonderful. One of my dearest friends from college, Pam Robeson, just had her second baby that I hadn't seen yet! So I made the trip to Blanchard, USA to visit Pam, big brother Luke, and new baby Payt (dad Todd was at work). It was so good to see her and the new baby, and I got lots of kisses blown to me from Luke as I left. I designated Friday as Norman friend-catch-up day. I went shopping with friend Tara (who I hadn't seen in forever) and caught up with old roommate and med-school-sufferer Laura. She went to Mexico for Spring Break, so it was good to talk to her. Makes me miss living in Norman...but not enough to move back for sure!

Saturday I made John go to Garden Ridge. Of course I didn't buy a thing b/c John is so awful to shop with. He doesn't understand home decor and making a house a home. He'd be happy with an empty house and a mattress as long as he had X-Box and Golf Clubs!

Sunday we enjoyed a festive Easter lunch at Shorty Small's. Great choice--no one was there. Guess ribs and burgers aren't traditional Easter food! The important thing was getting out of there in time to get Easton and Mason to the church for the Egg Hunt! Then, that night we got to watch the LTC kids perform, including Easton's small chorus. He did a GREAT job on his solo. It takes a lot of courage to sing by yourself at 9 years old in front of a whole church. His uncle even gets a little nervous reading scripture or praying in front of the church, so I think singing is a great accomplishment. ;)

I'll check back soon. Also, if you get a chance hit the "Gayle Gang" link under our links section, and catch up on Robin and Renee's fun trip to New York. Quite entertaining. I need a vacation...

We will have to make a trip to Garden Ridge together. Josh is a DRAG to shop with for home decor. If it doesn't involve high-end electronics or Halo 2, he's out. Don't worry - we won't spend TOO much!
