Our Joyous Pascha

Christ is Risen!

Wow, what a week. I feel like I should be way more tired than I am today. It must be that we are....

NEWLY ILLUMINED!!! We were baptized and chrismated on Holy Saturday. We all took Holy Communion and thus, are being sustained by the body and blood of our Lord. I wish I could write more reverently about it, but it's like, totally awesome. And that's all I can say.

Here are the kids in the morning. Hannah slept in her pretty Pascha dress. We like to get plenty of use out of our fancy clothes.

James after just a few hours of sleep.

Wishing you a beautiful Bright Week!

Little Lovelies.

A busy little boy, a thoughtful little girl...

And our first little tomato.

Thanks, Xenia!

What was I doing 10 years ago?

Being a lazy high school student and a fast little swimmer on my swim team. I was 17, drove a blue little Chevy around, was a member of a group of four girls that for the most part stayed out of too much trouble, and I most likely had a hopeless crush on some boy. I liked going to my youth group, eating at Islands, getting my nails done, dying my hair for kicks, and going to the beach in my friend Jessie's old Mustang blasting some awful music that I would completely deny if you asked me about it.

Snacks I enjoy:

anything smothered in dark chocolate

vegetables and hummus

trail mix

salsa tortilla chips


Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

Buy a bigger house, but not too big. An older one story four bedroom ranch style in Claremont with a sprawling yard. Also, a sweet new mini van that has those awesome sliding doors that open at the press of a button. Make my mom retire so she could come over and help organize me every other day. Buy a bunch of fancy all in one diapers. Oh and I'd do some good too, like get our church built, care for the poor, give to our favorite charities, hire a live-in nurse/housekeeper for my grandparents that are getting too old to be on their own. Give give give. Jason's a good giver too, he would never let me hoard it away. :)

Five places I have visited:

San Francisco

Las Vegas

The Grand Canyon

The Bahamas

Mexico (a few different cities)

Five jobs I have had:

hot dog on a stick girl...go ahead, laugh it up. it was my first gig.

life guard

swim instructor


admin assistant for a few different places - church, college counseling center, a software consulting firm

Meme away, if you like!
