Here's the run-down on the Loose gang plus a few photos:
Sarah...in Toronto, working hard on her dissertation, made crescent rolls for Easter dinner with friends (she has Grandma E's recipe down!), church started late because the Ukrainian Orthodox Church worshipers next door to the LDS chapel had blocked the entrance to the parking lot. Has Napoleon Dynamite's twin brother in the Gospel Doctrine class she teaches.
Brittany...Exhausted after running crazy, huge egg hunt and all day event. It was either a smashing success or a frustration, depending on how you look at it. Based on past ticket sales they planned for 2500 people. 4300 people came!! Ticket sales huge, many kids without eggs, and grumpy parents.
Rachel...Painted faces of wiggly children for 6 hours in the cold outside with numb fingers! Back at Snow College today and ready for finals week. Sold her first piece of art at the art show! One week until summer break!
Richard...Valiantly mowed thick, wet grass with a lawn mower which has lost it's self-propelled power. Spent the weekend doing his Seminary homework which was hugging his parents and telling them he loved them!
Nick & Diana...Spent a week having fun with Nick's Oma & Opa. Took them to the Tulip Festival and the Carl Bloch exhibit at BYU. They are now working for the same company and enjoy driving to work together every day.
Chris Faria...Slept on our famous brown sectional that is more comfy than a bed. One week and 5 days from his wedding day!! (I cannot believe this!). Kind of lonely all weekend because his lovely Christina flew home to D.C. to get ready for the big day. Moved into their future home on Saturday and is setting up house.
Marianne...Stayed up late helping the Easter Bunny hide baskets. Annoyed with weight gain. Found her post-surgery energy. Made a lovely carrot cake!
Dee...Coached a swim meet on Saturday that took FOREVER, shopped with his wife for just the right ham. Is now the longest serving member of the Stake High Council. Says he feels old!
Sam...Helped clean the floor of dropped Easter candy and bits of ham. Went for a walk in the rain. Took lots of naps.
Happy eggs and tempting candy.
Lovely cake. Britt filled the hole with jelly beans because, "it's what Aunt Gena would do"!
The spring banner I made.
Did you know that Sam rhymes with HAM?!
First post surgery photo of me...looking tired, but I looked SO much worse a few weeks ago!
Love my Rachel!
