In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

Weekend Celebration

So, in my current trend of doing things when we are able to do them - we celebrated our traditional Easter this weekend. Since we went to family camp over Easter weekend, and ate Easter dinner at a Mexican restaurant, we booked an at home celebration the first weekend that Aunt Deb and all the kids (except for Gabriel and Alayna) were able to be home. This was the first opportunity.

I let the kids dye eggs -

And the big kids hid them for the little guys -

We then had our traditional ham dinner.  Gabriel happened to Face time right when we sat down.

It feels good to be settling back into normal life and there is SO MUCH to do outside. The grass was/is severely overgrown and JD spent a few days trying to get the riding mower to run. We have concluded that it is going to have to go in for repair so the boys and I took shifts mowing with the push mower yesterday while JD made the trip back to WV to pick up our Red vehicle that had broken down on the way home from the funeral.

My barn kitties that were dumped at the end of the driveway are going to be six this summer.
After the grass gets under control, we are going to wire the pasture fence for the goats and build a guinea proof chicken fence. 
Hoping that Leia is pregnant!
 We have also started the garden but unfortunately, I'm pretty behind planting this year. 

Chickens love yogurt and keifer by they way.
Continuing my do-it-when-you-can policy, we are having a serious overdue birthday party this weekend.
