sNOw more!!!!!

Dear winter,
Spring came a few weeks ago so.....
GO AWAY and NO MORE SNOW PLEASE!!!!
I can't hardly take the up and down of these extreme weather conditions...

2 days ago it was perfect- (see below)

Grandma Barker is here visiting our sweet baby. And of course spoiling us with her attention and willingness to clean and make all sorts of goodies. Today we finally un-thawed the berries I have had in my freezer for a loooong time! We made 15 jars of blackberry, strawberry, and raspberry/blackberry freezer jam. We baked 2 homemade fruit cakes with blackberries, we took a trip to the library, went to the store for some Easter goodies, and visited with Frank and Ladonna!

Are all those beautiful tulips in your yard? I'm so jealous! Glad Carol's there to help out with the kids. Make sure you milk having a baby for as long as you can.

How fun to have a little boy around your house now. Hopefully he'll grow up and be just as fun and as good of a friend as his dad was. Congrats guys! SherRae Lewis (old friend of Ben's)
