Donde esta numero quatro?

And I wondered how we would fit three in there...
(It is nearly impossible to get a decent picture of all three of them.  Wait until you see the pictures Mike tried to take at Easter.)

Confident or Carefree

I'll just say one person was very intense about what was going on here.  You decide who it was.  
It is so nice to have moved past Candy Land.


Sorry it's blurry.

Another Easter tradition

The annual Manthei Easter egg hunt.  Frank and Irma have just enveloped us right into their family, inviting us to all the birthday parties, bringing presents at Christmas like Santa Claus, and sending over Easter baskets early Sunday morning.  Frank is the shopper (and the cook too!).  Irma said he had 15 Easter baskets filling their dining table Easter morning - for all their grandkids, our 3 and August.  We are so thankful for them.

Sweet, sweet Desiree and fam.

June (just found out this week it is short for Junior)

Hunting again

We had our second annual community easter egg hunt last weekend and it was just as much fun as last year! So excited to see probably twice as many folks from he neighborhood as last year. A lot of families from the other Harbor sites came out to support us last year and it was great to see them replaced by some of our own neighbors this year!Bunny hop races
Water balloon toss

The 1 and 2-year-olds are off!
And chased by their parents with cameras

Oh, the stories of the folks in this great to see God growing our family.

There's Joe in the hat - didn't even get a pic of Olivia - she was working the crowd - I hardly saw her.

Child labor

It's a good thing.


It only took us 3 months, but we finally finished them all. Joseph is a puzzle working fool! And we only lost about 5 or 6 pieces.
