<sorry .. that was quite cliche!>
Greetings from the metropolis of Charlotte, NC ... we celebrated Easter in fine form today ... we went to church without yelling at each other, a minor miracle in itself. After the service I had a hankering for some Olive Garden salad, so off we went. After lunch we came home and I was a victim of the rack monster for a while. Then we dyed easter eggs and had an egg hunt in the back yard. I just bought a DVD of "Beauty and the Beast" (my favorite Disney cartoon of all time) so we watched that. Then we had a traditional Easter dinner of ... PIZZA. David knocked himself out all afternoon cleaning out the garage (we've been in this house for almost 6 months; isn't it about time??) Now we have room in there to unload our storage shed! Yech ... time for a garage sale, I think.
The Southlake kids are off this week for their spring break (Colin's was the last week of March). We don't have a lot planned; just enjoying sleeping late (I will of course dive back into bed after I wake Colin at 5 a.m.) and just being bums.
Over the weekend we had Bill & Leslie's youth group overnight. 22 people invaded our house! They had driven in a van, a truck and trailer and a large church van. They arrived at 1 a.m., and the darn alarm on the church van kept going off. I think our neighbors will be signing a petition to get us booted out of the subdivision soon. It really worked out well, some kids even slept out on the screened-in porch. We had breakfast casseroles in the morning, and they pulled off at 8:30. Of course we were all dragging big time on Saturday.
Looks like David is headed to New Zealand the first week of May on business. Gonna be a long week. Stay tuned. ** AOL Pictures is being snarky, so I'll try to upload them tomorrow.
