Palm Sunday

The preschool children get to sing in church twice a year...the first Sunday in December and Palm Sunday. It is so precious to watch and listen to them sing. They are all three dressed alike so it should make it easier to find them in these pictures :-)

Pre-K Ocean Parade

The Pre-K kids had an at-home project to make a creature from the ocean. We chose to make a jellyfish. Thanks to a few suggestions from friends and the internet, this is what we came up with for Aubrey's ocean animal...using a blueberry container, bubble wrap, permanent marker and googly eyes. Each kid displayed their creation by walking in a parade at the end of school one day.Our sweet friend, Barrett and his octopus. I was so impressed with all the creativity from the kids and parents :-)
All of the younger classes sat in the hallway to watch the parade. Carter saw me taking pictures so I ended up sitting with him. He definitely was not feeling his best that day!

A Weekend Up North...Dallas

The next day was Uncle Drew's birthday so we helped him celebrate. Aunt Kim and Uncle Drew have this amazing park close to their new home in Richardson. After we checked out the house, we spent the afternoon playing and enjoying the beautiful spring weather.

Chillin' with the family

Chillin' turned to cheesy but we were having fun!That evening we met Kim's family for dinner at this delicious Greek restuarant.
Carter made sure he got in on singing 'Happy Birthday' and blowing out that candle.Emery coloring.
Nana lovin' on Aubrey.
Lily messin' with Uncle Drew.
Thank you Uncle Drew for letting all these kids help you celebrate your 31st birthday. We love you!
Sunday morning we went to Uncle Drew's new church. He is in charge of anything that involves kids (from newborns to high schoolers) at a second location of Highland Park UMC called Munger Place. It is amazing to see what God is doing at this church right in the heart of Dallas.
