Easter Weekend!

Aspen (my niece) asked me what i wanted the Easter Bunny to bring me. I thought long and hard and I answered back to her, "I want Karissa and Nate to come to my house for Easter." She put her hands on her hips and gave me a very frustrated look and said , "Amber, the Easter Bunny can't bring you that for Easter!!" And then she walked away! Fortunately I got what i wanted. Nate and Karissa came this weekend and Jessie K. being here was a total bonus!

My parents have started the tradition of going to California to see my sister and her family for Easter. Leaving me alone for 2 weeks. Not that i mind. Also my brother and his wife went to Tennessee for a basketball tournament and left their 4 kids at home. So We had all the kids over and colored Easter eggs!!!

7 kids-19 different colors-and 80 eggs!

We had puff paint! Not as fun as it sounds.. I had to concentrate too hard!

Isn't that tender?? (Throwing up)

Later after all the kids left we got involved in a intense game of Guitar Hero III and ate mozzarella sticks!! Good fun!!!

My sister made dinner for all of us! It was super good!!! Chey was nice enough to peel potatoes and didn't want to get her new Easter outfit dirty!! Doesn't she look so grown up??

Karissa Helped clean of the table
It was so magical

After dinner it was a serious battle of Hula Hooping
I was not good!
Nate wasn't much better!

Chey beat us all!!

Then Aspen wanted to take me on a ride.. She was my horse pulling a wagon!!

We decided i needed two horses!!

It was a great weekend!! We lots of fun!! The food was good and the company made it the best!!!
Thanks for coming and spending the weekend friends!!!

I am so blessed

This is the 3rd time I’ve started this blog over. I’m just gonna get straight to the point instead of trying to be all thought-provoking and profound. This last month has been a rough one. Nothing I can’t handle, just busy and stressful. I often think of the people in my life and how grateful I am for them. I occasionally wonder how life would be without them or what path I would have taken had one of them not been there to give me advice and guidance. Recently I have not only become more grateful for those in my life but completely and utterly humbled by the love they have for me. I cannot believe that I have been so blessed to have people who are ready and willing to help, whether it be helping me count right, listening to what I truly have to say, or just letting me know I’m loved and cared for. I don’t want to know where I’d be without these people. It’s frightening. So to those who have my best interest at heart, who support me, and most importantly who know the real me and still love me, I hope you know that I am grateful and I love you all very much and I would not be who I am without you!

Obviously this isn’t everyone who I’m grateful for but these are a few! (No Karissa they’re
not in any particular order so stop thinking that!!)

Somebody Loves Me

So Yesterday at work, I was doing my thing, running around for the doctor and doing whatever needed to get done. A girl walked into the office carrying a a beautiful vase of tulips. Tulips are my favorite and of course i was instantly jealous of who ever they were for. I thought for sure they were for Laura from her husband or Albany from her boyfriend. The flower lady put them on the desk and said "These are for Amber." My mouth dropped open in shock. I ripped the card open to find out who loved me! All it said was Have a good day!!! No name!! Are you kidding me?? How sweet!! Someone loves me. I went nuts all day trying to figure out who they were from. Needless to say my wonderful doctor (Adam) wouldn't let me live it down, and everyone else that came into the office made comments about my "secret lover." I have my speculations on who might of sent them but nobody is talking! So without much evidence as to who's culprit.. i have ended my search and have deiced to just enjoy my tulip!! I love them!

Aren't they just gorgeous??

And look we match!!! What are the odds???
