What used to be just Easter is now Feaster! Look at this spread. Mom-in-law did a great job getting our brunch on.

Alden received a robotic puppy since our cat won't let him touch her. He just wants to snuggle so bad. And so hard. This might help.

Action shot of Alden hunting for eggs. Of course, I tear up as both Grandpa Eric and Papa Dan and Dustin are calling out hints and encouragement to Alden. I loved the team effort. Good hunting practice. But I'm still not letting Alden go camping with them. Ever. There is a newspaper editorial that you can ask them about some other time.

We dyed eggs at a friend's house (Hi, Jules!) where our three little boys experimented with many different dying options. Many, many options. Note Alden's lips in profile. OOOOOOO!

That's Good Bingo

All I wanted for my birthday this year was to play bingo. Since that's not your typical Saturday evening fun fest in Grants Pass, Oregon, we decided to host a game or 6 ourselves.

With daubers in hand, nearly 18 people sat patiently as we worked our way through so many games. It was fun. It was loud. And their were some prizes won. We had all sorts of things for the lucky winners: a baked potato shaped planter, a Pez dispenser, a Hall and Oats record, a ceramic taco holder, and cash money.

This kid was daubed out.

Roller Derby Name

I am joining this as soon as I can purchase my mouth gaurd. This has been over 6 years in the making. I'm was a chicken and now I'm not.

Help me decide on my Rolley Derby name:
Tangy Ream (like tangerine)
Rita Freakin' Book
Orange You Glad
Code Orange
Big Eddie Orange Punch
Blood Orange

Thanks to several submissions from Gavin. He gets me.
