Easter Egg Hunt with the China Girls

At our recent playdate with the 'China Girls', Bella's momma prepared an Easter egg hunt in the playroom.....she definitely made it easy for the girls to find the eggs. This was a whole new experience for Caroline.

The Clapping Song

Caroline loves to sing songs from her Aunt Annie's Baby Sing and Sign book/CD. Here, she is doing the motions to 'The Clapping Song', one of her favorites. It seems that she is a bit shy when she knows she's being videotaped, but at least she did some of the motions.

Grandma's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grandma made some wonderful chocolate chunk / oatmeal cookies. Caroline ate a few bites of cookie and you can see that she totally enjoyed it. What a nice Saturday afternoon activity.

We had a wonderful day of worship at Westminster Presbyterian Church. My children's choir was there to sing, friends and family came from long distances to be there, and many friends from our previous church came to support us. I was also so pleased to see several former and current IWU students there. Thanks to all that came to share this very special day with us. Caroline didn't seem to be too upset with having Pastor Justin place sprinkle water on her head. The only thing she did was touch her hair after the baptism as if to say, what did you do to my hair? After the service, some family members had to leave to catch a flight out of Indianapolis, but several came to the house to enjoy a meal and fellowship with us. A very memorable day!
