Precious Baby Hands

Oh, be careful little hands, what you do,
Oh, be careful little hands, what you do
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little hands
What you do
Cambrie Noelle & Keri Jill
How good and pleasant it is when brothers (sisters) live together in unity!
Psalm 133:1
Bright-eyed baby girl
Sugar and spice and everything nice
Precious sleeping baby

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Matthew 19:4

Banana ~ Pecan Biscotti

Another way to use those extra bananas over ripening on the counter are these delicious biscotti cookies. At 72 calories each (without the chocolate drizzled on top), they are a delightful treat!
They are extra crunchy on the outside, probably because after slicing, they are baked on both of the cut sides.

Happy Birthday, Ryan!

This sweet little porcelain bootee is special to me.
It commemorates the day that Ryan Emery joined our family.
Seven years ago today!
I have booties for each of our four daughters
and all but the last three grandchildren.
The lady that made these beautiful booties sold the business
and the new owners are not currently operating.
I am very sad.
Through the years I have purchased many for special keepsake gifts
and really would like to have them for all of our grandchildren.
Happy Birthday, Ryan!
Look how much he's grown!

Outdoor Wednesday ~ Nesting Doves

Look what I found just outside our side door on the arbor there...
A pair of Mourning Doves

Mourning Doves are light grey and brown and generally muted in color. Males and females are similar in appearance. The species is generally monogamous, with two squabs (young) per brood. Both parents incubate and care for the young. Mourning Doves eat almost exclusively seeds

I heard a Stock-dove sing or say
His homely tale, this very day;
His voice was buried among trees,
Yet to be come at by the breeze:
He did not cease; but cooed--and cooed:
And somewhat pensively he wooed:
He sang of love, with quiet blending,
Slow to begin, and never ending;
Of serious faith, and inward glee;
That was the song,--the song for me!
- William Wordsworth,
O Nightingale! Thou Surely Art

Flowers Family and Fun

Jamie and her family drove up to NY to spend a couple of days with her
twin sister Jill her family.
Four adults and 8 children filled their little house with lots of crazy love!
Here are pictures of their time together.
All of our grandchildren except our oldest, Jared.

Jamie and family got home Saturday night and asked us to join them for Easter morning church service at the Haddonfield Campus. Afterward we headed to their house and shared a bucket of KFC and this bunny cake I made for dessert.
