Aloha Friday #14

It's Aloha Friday! I've missed a few lately (again!), but I will always come back for more! As a reminder, Aloha Friday is a blogging tradition that originally started with Kailani over on An Island Life. I ask you a simple question, and you answer! It's a great way to interact with family and friends and to meet new bloggy friends along the way! To participate, just head over to Kailani's blog and follow the instructions. (But, you do not have to link up! You can just simply answer the question!)

Warm Spring weather is officially here and we're finally breaking out the shorts, capris and sandals around here! We recently took a trip to Texas and I treated my bare toes to a little bit of colour for the first time in a long time! Sara also wanted her toes painted the same as Mommy's, so we have matching toenails!

So, my question for today is:

What colour are your toenails painted? Do you like to be wild and crazy with your colours or stick with the more conservative shades?

Right now, mine are a pearly mauve colour. The most wild I ever get is my bright, sparkly red nail polish!

And this was at 6 o'clock this evening! Joshua and I went to a marriage session thing at church, called "Leading From Your Strengths." It was good, but....the laundry room still looks like this! Tomorrow will be busy!

Easter Pictures!

Easter Sunday was a beautiful, sunny day! The kids humoured me for some pictures before we headed to church in the morning. I wanted Sky to tuck his shirt in, but both males in the house out-voted me...

After Sky kept squinting and complaining about the sun in his eyes, I switched Sara to the other side of him, so she would block the sun! She was more agreeable than he was!Sara posed for a few more pictures after church. She got the lamb from her Auntie Shannon.
For lunch after church, we enjoyed sandwiches and fresh veggies on our back deck! First time to eat outside this year! Also the first time we got to wear shorts and capris! After lunch we played in the backyard and just soaked up the sun for awhile. We were invited to a friends' house for the afternoon and dinner. Chris and Christy have 4 sweet, energetic children. It was so much fun hanging out with them! The kids enjoyed an Easter egg hunt for mini chocolate eggs and jelly beans. Here is Sara showing me her eggs! Notice the sunshine and sleeveless dress!!
Sky teamed up with his friend, Johnny, who is also 5. They put their chocolate eggs and jelly beans into this bottle and then shared it all later! It was so cute!
We had a wonderful visit! Christy outdid herself with the meal. Homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu with lots of other yummy things. Then, when you thought it couldn't get any better, dessert was a homemade strawberry shortcake! Christy and I worked together to make everything all afternoon and we had a lot of fun together in the kitchen! All went smoothly unless we ended up with more than 1 or 2 of the 6 children in the kitchen at the same time! :-) We went home tired, but happy and thankful for good friends! Maybe Edmonton/St. Albert is beginning to feel more like home after all...
