Our Giada girl loves the sand. Like most 1-year-olds, she loves to squish it between her fingers, pack it and pour it from pails and even eat it. Yes, our little lovely does indeed love the texture and would take handful after handful of sand - much to mama's chagrin!

Easter is one of the most important holidays in our faith. It's been a joy to teach our girls about their Christian heritage. We celebrate the birth of Christ at Christmas and the resurrection of Christ at Easter time. This year we were very intentional about reading the parts of the Easter story in the Bible and talking through the events with Meilani. She likes to ask lots of insightful questions.
This year we were invited to an Egg-Decorating party at our friends, the Coombs' house. They had a contest for the best decorated egg.
Meilani's fabulous egg. Second place for the little kids' division.
Who says Easter has to be filled with junk? We found these great organic jelly beans, lollipops and Annie's bunnies at Whole Foods. Special treats for Meilani girl...
Nama Chris loves to give the girls baskets full of special treats and games.

We are so blessed to journey through this season of life with a great group of friends. We meet every other week for dinner and prayer time. We started out as young married couples and now we have exploded into families with lots of kids. Allison caught this fabulous photo with (gasp!) everyone smiling and looking at the camera.
