Well, we picked up the newest additions to our family...er, farm family. :) Some friends of our had some bummer lambs and after going to visit them last week, we decided to go ahead and bring them home. One of them is a rather sickly and requires quite a bit of attention. We're hoping that with all of the love he's been getting he'll perk up soon. We went back and forth on names for the lambs and finally decided on Jeeves and Wooster. Em is absolutely thrilled to finally see her dream come true, and I must admit, we're all pretty smitten with the little guys as well. :)

This past Saturday was Pi day, and since we're always looking for an excuse to do something fun, we decided to celebrate! Everything we ate that day was circular and cut like pie! We had quiche for breakfast, had it again for lunch (okay, so we were kinda lazy around lunch time, so we threw in some leftovers for those who were quiched out! :)), and then we had homemade pizza for dinner! Apple pie was also on the menu, and it finished baking around dinner time. When we were done with dinner, warm apple pie with a crumb topping was waiting for us! So, without further ado, here are some pictures of our fun day...

This past Saturday we all went over to church to celebrate with the Price family. They had many things to be celebrating, so they wrapped them all into one fabulous party called "The Priceless Bowl." Once we had all eaten till we were sooo full, the games began. They had relay races, logic puzzles, mazes, paper airplane contests, name that classical tune test, and so much more! Since I somehow ended up as our team leader, and I was also a team member, I didn't get very many pictures, but here are a few for your enjoyment...
Cute little Matthew getting food before the activities begin.
Mrs. Price gave instructions and told us to line up...some people seemed to have a hard time doing this. :)
Rachel works on drawing a wedding cake...yes, of course she's doing it on the top of her head! :)

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous the past two days and we've been thrilled to be able to spend so much time outdoors. The lake is completely defrosted, the geese are making their return flight north, the birds are singing, the breeze is coming in and the sun is shining overhead! What a lovely and blessed time of the year it is! We took a nice long walk with the little people today and had fun taking pictures of our group. Abby is working on an essay, so she decided to stay home and Caleb is out of town with my Dad, so neither of them are the in photos below...
The little girls saw William in his shades are started singing, "He's a secret agent awesome sweet..." Too many Daniel Gardner videos? ;)
Our shadows. Okay, the last shadow picture might have been a little hard to figure out...so how about this one. Can you figure out who is who?
The Aunts decide they need a picture there too...and the funny little boy didn't want to be left out...
*Photo credit ~ Emma and Grace were good enough to take the pictures of The Aunts. :)*

My dad and Caleb went down to St. Louis for the Men's Advance last week, so we invited some friends over to stay the night with us. The man of their house went with our menfolk, so we thought it was a lovely setup. It's always nice to have people over when you're "home alone." :) The weather was improving, so some of us decided a nice turn about the neighborhood was in order. Of course, no walk would be complete without our traditional pictures, so our wonderful Rebel XT made the trip with us and captured these...
I'm not sure what the discussion was (probably over Jess' lack of a coat!) but I love Mel's expression! :)
