Sad times...

This past Wednesday we made a trip down to the Valencia area for a funeral. It was for Wayne's Grandpa Barton. Unfortunately he passed away from cancer. He was such a sweet man who had a smile that could light up the darkest room. He loved his family, especially his 8 grandkids and 4 great grandkids!! I have been trying to find a picture of him to post and I can't seem to find one. Lots of pictures were taken that day and this one was taken by Wayne's Uncle Danny. Not a bad family picture....considering the somber mood and one very tired 23 month old!!!!

We love you Grandpa Barton and know that you are in a better place watching over us. I will definately be thinking about him and many others during the Relay for Life today!

God Bless everyone and give your family an extra hug and kiss today!!

Happy Easter to All!

We had a wonderful Easter with the family. The kids actually hunted eggs several times. We hid eggs Saturday night because Wayne had to make a suddent trip down to L.A. (his grandpa was in the hospital). We had Easter Sunday at Aunt Corinna's house and got to see our cousins that we don't see as often as we would like. The kids and I then headed out to Wayne's uncle's house in Atwater for more Easter fun!!our bright and colorful eggs
Michael's basket...the Smurfs are a new fave in our house.

Kara was so excited about her polka dot garden gloves

Michael followed Kara everywhere...we had to get him away so he could find his own eggs!!

Luckily Great Grandpa was there to lend him a helping hand

Kara was a pro at hunting Easter Eggs. She found around 16 at Auntie Corinna's house and another 30 at her Uncle Pat's house!!

Moving Day....

This was the scene a week ago this past Saturday. With the help from my dad, brother, and friends me moved across town. I didn't get many pictures taken since I was kinda busy but I did manage a couple.
Michael was having a good time running in and out of the truck!
Once we are all settled in the house I will take some new pictures of the house.
