Easter Saturday..

Today is Easter Saturday. That is what my Grandma called it. Easter Eve is another alternative. Day before Easter works too. So does just plain ol' Saturday.

Well much goings on around here...

The older folks:

Mom has recovered VERY well (thanks be to God). Dad is still doing okay. We have gotten him to do less driving although he continues to insist he can drive fine.. with my mothers help! Yea, scary.

BUT.. the good thing is .. they (my parents) will be moving to Arizona! They will arrive here on May 22. Lock stock and barrell will follow on a moving truck. They will be moving into a beautiful senior living facility. The nice thing about this place (there are many nice things really) is they will have their own apartment. It is a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath patio home. A really nice big patio in back that is fully screened in. The patio is almost like another room. They should get great use out of that.

There is a great woodworking studio that has every tool you can think of. It is the size of a garage, all of the tenants can use everything in there.

My favorite part is ... A HUGHE CRAFT APARTMENT.. thats right a WHOLE apartment with nothing but crafts! Even in the kitchen! You can bake there! I am going to be volunteering there just so I can go play with all the toys!

The nice thing is they will only be 10 minutes away from both my sister and I. They are half way in the middle of the both of us! I am looking forward to having them here.

On the younger side of things...

My nephew Brian and his wife Lisa welcomed my 3 Great nephew into the world today (I have 3 great nephews and 1 great far). Samuel Anthony Coleman weighed in at 6.63 and 19 inches long. A beautiful little guy. So happy I was able to see him shortly after he was born. What a cutie. It was so amazing to watch the men that I remember being born, have children of thier own.

More to come with new pictures too!

Happy Easter!
