Elianna's Blessing Day

It's been so long since I have updated my blog, it's a bit overwhelming to figure out where to start playing catch-up.

If you missed the big announcement, Elianna Lynn Gonzalez joined our family on September 28th (several days later than expected!) Big sister LOVES her, and big brother is finding new and exciting way to demand his fare share of attention!

This past Sunday we blessed little Ellianna, and as it happened to turn out her Grandma Sandy and Grandpa Tom were in town. As by shear coincidence my Aunt Carol and Uncle Gary were visiting cousins Kat and Jenn from Oregan. So we had quite the family gathering! It was really a fun day!!

The whole crew.

All the Gonzalezs

And our little family, who isn't so little anymore!

Tractor Days

The kids love getting rides on the lawn tractor. As it turns out the neighbor friends were over and they each waited patiently for their turn to have a ride on the tractor around the house.

These days my kids favorite TV show is "A Minute to Win it!" For FHE the other night we came up with our own challenge to play. On top of the pile of flour was a fruit loop. Each family member had their turn to slice of a portion of the flour, until the flour pile falls. Then the person who caused the fall has to retrieve the fruit loop with the mouth. It was great fun!

Easter, better late than never

What is Easter without Easter eggs? Good thing we made them!

Abby was thrilled that the Easter bunny left her a Merliah doll!

Looks like Charlie was in "a mood". My favorite part of this photo are his green hands from coloring eggs!

They clean up pretty nice!

Pre-Easter Fun

For both of my blog readers, I'm sorry for my lack of blogging as of late. I have not done a great job fitting in any non-essentials in our life. Good news in that we are all quite healthy and happy.

Today the kids both had Easter parties at their preschool classes. I saw these cute cupcakes several weeks ago, and have been waiting for an occasion to make them. The Easter Party was the perfect occasion!

Look at my cute helpers!

Aren't the colors amazing! :)

The finished product!!!! It was a great hit!

Abby Grace hunting for eggs.

Wow, she did well for herself!

Good friends.

Cute girls!

Charlie's party spread!

Don't we look like twins? ha ha ha

The whole class

There you have it, proof we are alive and kicking! On top of it all, we are having fun this Easter holiday season!
