I started babysitting a baby boy, Gates, of a friend of mine two mornings a week. Anna loves Gates!

Even when Gates is not with us, her baby doll (now named Gates) is with us.

Abigail and the Selfie

This generation has their parents' iphones as a toy! One day I decided to free up some memory on my phone. I deleted over 300 selfies of Abigail!! She is cute and they do capture her personality--I had to save a few!

This one even captures her love of ketchup and dislike of wiping her face!

Grandma's Packages

Grandma Charlotte sends the best packages. The kids absolutely love it when a package from Missouri arrives in the mail! This year's Easter package was a hit!
I took a few pictures to show the aftermath of a package, the joy (and mess) when they eat the entire Pez dispenser in one sitting.

Easter Fun

Could they be any cuter?

At the Bella Vista Easter Breakfast on Saturday, the kids had fun with face painting and egg hunting and an amazing Guatemalan breakfast! Unfortunately Marc was on a campout with the scouts and missed the fun!

Egg hunting is serious business

Aunt Elizabeth did Easter crafts with the kids. Love having an artists as Aunt
Joseph loved dying eggs at Cub Scouts. Abigail asked why the eggs were dead!

Home life

Sometimes the most fun is just playing with your siblings at home.

Baseball Season Starts

Joseph was back with his team under Coach Buono. This season they were the Orioles. Joseph still loves baseball and plays with all his heart. During the first game of the season he had an unassisted double play!

Baseball practice means play time at the nearby playground! 

We love watching Joseph play. Even when it's a little chilly early in the season. Every time we pass a baseball field, Anna shouts out, "Joseph's baseball game" or "Go Joseph!"  It is very cute!
