Mr. and Mrs. Andy Daniel

My brother got married on April 12! He married Jaime, who we all adore! She is beautiful, smart, sweet, funny...a perfect match for Andy!!!! The rehearsal was a blast, and the wedding was absolutely beautiful. Jaime was a very gorgeous bride and Andy looked pretty darn handsome himself!!!!

Here is a picture of the two of them at the rehearsal dinner....

And here is a picture of Jaime cutting some cake. I thought it was a cute picture! :)

Isn't her dress beautiful? I loved it! And doesn't Andy look so proud! I wish the lighting was better on this picture...but it is still a good one!

Here is a picture of my siblings and their spouses...and me with my spouse!!! Matt and Lynnell are on the far right, then Andy and Jaime, then Michael and me! I think both of my brothers married knock-outs! Lucky guys!!!!

I wish I had time to post more...maybe one day soon! The wedding was an absolute blast and it was so fun to see old friends! Since we live in Michigan, we don't get to see our family very often, so it was really great to be able to spend some time with them!

Serving Jesus!

This week is Spring Break for our school districts. The youth group is doing service projects around Kalamazoo. Yesterday the group served at the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. I had to take Noah to the doctor (double ear infection...poor guy!), so Michael took Drew with him. Noah, Isaac and I met up with them after the appointment. Anyway, when I got there, I was greeted with a bubbly Drew wearing a hairnet and a white apron. The first thing he said to me was, "Are you going to serve with me?" He was so excited to be there and to be helping others. He and Michael handed out food to the people who came to the mission for dinner. Drew gave the people granola bars. When we left, he told me that he really had fun giving food to people who didn't have food. And this morning, the first thing he asked me is who we are going to serve today. What an amazing heart he has....

Three of my boys...serving together as a family! Noah didn't do much, but he sure did look cute!
Aren't the adorable?!
And this is Drew is the line, ready for round three of serving granola bars!

Silly Boys!

I am so blessed to have three amazing little boys! I love their laughter and joy. I love that they act silly and love to have fun! Here are a few pictures of their silliness!

Easter Fun!

We had a wonderful Easter this year! The boys decorated eggs on Good Friday. It was so fun and they both did a great job! Then on Easter Sunday we celebrated the day with our friends Bob and DJ Feitl. We headed over to their house after nap time for come delicious food and lots of fun. They spoiled the boys rotten...which they loved!

Drew really seems to understand what Easter is all about. If you ask him, he'll tell you that Jesus died on the cross to save us. He'll also proceed to tell you about Peter cutting off the soldiers ear and Mary washing Jesus' feet with her hair. We credit all this biblical knowledge to his Sunday school teacher, Mr. Steve. It's amazing what Drew can retain at such a young age. The other day at school, they had to fill out a sheet that stated: "If I saw Jesus, I would..." and they were to fill in the dots. Drew said, "If I saw Jesus, I could help him fight the bad guys." Michael and I got a kick out of that. Later in the week, we were talking to Drew about that and Michael asked Drew what he thought Jesus would say/do to the bad guys. Drew said that he would hang them on a cross. Michael said that he didn't think that is what Jesus would do. So Drew changed his answer and said that Jesus would make them into good guys. I liked that answer!

Here are some pictures of us coloring the eggs....
