here are some of our smiles from the past week...well, at least the ones i didn't already share in my "snippets" post the other day. i think most of these actually go through the week backwards since that is how the pics uploaded into the post.
1. my Easter present....a newly mounted over the range microwave. mike gifted me with the microwave a few months back, but we had to tear out a cabinet and do some new wiring to actually hang it, so it was just hanging out on the counter. well, thanks to mike and our friend chris, it took its place above the stove after our Easter lunch! i'm SOOO excited about my extra counter space (although i randomly go to microwave something...say the heating pad for my achin' back...and momentarily think, "wait, who stole the mircowave!"...yep, pregnancy and the girls have completely sucked my brain away!)
4. Jesus is ALIVE! what a blessing to go to church Sunday morning and worship with brothers and sisters in Christ. and oh what a blessing to hear elizabeth's little voice starting to "get" and repeat "He is risen INDEED!".
5. the girls in their matching Easter dresses.
