One Happy Grandma

Bless Rachel's parents for inviting me to their home today for Easter dinner. I had such a good time visiting with them and the rest of the family: Grandma Kuehl, Eli and his family, Gen and her family, and Rachel's Uncle Phil and Aunt Laura. The little ones: Leah, Sammy, Aaron and Gus are adorable! Aaron, Gus and Leah have beautiful light blue eyes; Sammy's are dark chocolate brown. Pete and Jan are looking great! And the dinner was delicious!

When I got home, I turned on my computer to check for emails and updated blogs. (I still have dial-up. The appointment for high-speed got rescheduled for the 18th, so I'm limping along.) To my delight, Rachel had posted pictures of the Easter egg hunt today at Patch Barracks. Josiah and Annika were so cute. What an amazing sight - - military families, far from home, sharing this precious time together. It seemed like hundreds of children having fun - many of them dressed up. You can check it out here. I said a prayer for all of them. What a sacrifice they're making - being away from loved ones. You don't know how proud they make me.

Next I checked Peder and Sarah's blogs. Looks like they were decorating eggs today. Aurelia looks so serious while dipping her egg. You can see photos here.

Maybe Heidi will post a new entry tomorrow (no pressure, only if she has time) to celebrate Marshall's 5th month mark. He is so cute!

I never knew I would love being a grandma so much. But I sure do!

I'm glad that you had a good time with them and I'm glad that you had ham and not tacos. Though I know you would have eaten tacos without complaint!
