With sun overhead and snow underfoot, you can suspect you are in Colorado. And that is where these pictures were taken just last month.

I do believe this is Princess Rapunzel. Our great granddaughter is a Disney Princess. Who would have ever guessed?
Hoping that all our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren have a wonderful Easter and that they know why we are celebrating the day...Jesus came out of his grave to live forever in heaven, where he waits for us to come to him. All we have to do is love Him and our fellow man, for if we do, we will want to follow His example and love others as he did.
Happy Easter to all.

You've seen that Julia skied at Keystone, near Breckenridge. Well Breckenridge is a great place to be for more reasons than just skiing. There is a really nice children's activity center there, called Mountain Top Children's Museum. While Caleb skied, Oliver and Julia had a good time experiencing the compilation of learning activities.
I'm not sure exactly what Oliver was doing here, but by the pictures I would think he takes after his great grandfather, my dad. He looks like a natural chemist.
Oliver always impresses me by the way he studies everything carefully. I can just see the wheels turning in his head.

Our church ladies have had some very inspiring Ladies' Retreats starting in 1975. Some of my favorite were held at a local National Park and lasted two days, so we slept in the park facilities. I'll never forget those times that knit us closely together with our Christian sisters.
Over all those years, we generally hired a speaker from outside our midst, usually from another state. However, I don't remember a speaker who moved us like Jane Drummond did this year.
She is one of our own and one who has spoken in other locations, mostly at marriage encounters.
This time, her serious subject paired with her sincerity and humor really got the point across that she wanted to make about joy. Joy is what God wants us to have, not just happiness. Happiness is based on the right circumstances; but joy is a choice and can be held through whatever the world throws at us. I wish all of you could some day hear her talk. Again, It is the best I've heard.
By the way I must tell you that Jane and I are both members of the group ORU that you've most likely heard of right here on this blog.

Can't believe I'm posting a layout of Maggie. Oh well, at least she is pretty and a good dog. She does deserve a little attention.
I saw Maggie in the bathroom, tilting her head from side to side and watching Ron shave. I suppose she has not seen that before, although I don't know how she has missed it. It really did look as if she were interested in learning how. If she learned, it could possibly save us a lot of money.
I sent off another book to the publisher last night, so now I'm working on number 64. I had a fairly good start. Hopefully, I'll have a brand new layout for tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy looking at this fluffy dog, because it is time to take her for her springtime cut. She will be going short and she'll not only be cooler, but she'll have to endure a lot less combing. That will be something we will both appreciate.

This picture in the top corner is quite pixilated. It didn't have the quality it needed to be blown up that big, but I found it such a fun picture that I did that anyway.
Julia, I hope this layout makes you laugh for many years. We surely do love you!
