I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Easter weekend! I know we sure did.. Egg hunt last weekend at church, Egghunt @ Mack's school on Thursday, Egghunt yesterday with my family! That was the FIRST family gathering in almost 7 years!! It was a much needed gathering and a very AWESOME time together! Between the prize eggs, candy in the eggs, and the Easter Bunny... my girls are set til Halloween with the candy and til Christmas with the toys!! LOL! I know the Easter bunny is not the meaning of Easter... and I hope you all know the true meaning.. I am thankful for all that god has done for me and the lives I have brought into this world... my family, friends, and the ones I don't get along with so well. We all have our differencs, but that doesn't mean I don't thank god for bringing them into my life. And I thank him everyday for washing away my sins and paying for them when he died on the cross! He is the reason we are all here and nothing means more to me than the life he has given me and my family!!! Here are some pics from the family gathering and I am sooo thankful it was made possible to FINALLY get together.. It has been a long 7 1/2 yrs! ENJOY!! :)

We here at the Coad house... have been loving the BEAUTIFUL weather we have been getting! This coming week is sure to be AWESOME... 76 and sunny just about EVERYDAY! Miss Em has about 6 weeks of school left.. maybe a lil more than 6 weeks, but she is counting down!!! I just had my 29th birthday and I am just not sure about how I feel being so close to 30. I know I am still young, but it almost seems a curse we start out so young just to live our life and in the end... not have much energy or gr8 health to do much with the last of our days. But that's how it goes and has been going like that forever... not much I can do about it. Anywho.. here are a few pics of the girls enjoying the park and sunshine!!

A conversation I had with Miss Mack!

Mack: Mommy why is it raining??

Me: B/c God needs to water the world's trees and grass.. and give the cows some water in there pond.

Mack: Where is God?

Me: He is up in the sky!

Mack: Where?? I can't see him!!

Me: He's there sweet heart.. you just can't see him!

Mack: Hello God!!... Mommy.. He's not talking to me!

Me: Baby he's there and you can talk to him all you want.. he always listens... he's just not much of a talker.

Mack: God... Can you please make it stop raining so I can go play with Jonathan (our little neighbor boy)?? Mommy said I can't go outside until it stops raining... PLEASE!!!

Me: Mack, I just love you!! You are so amazing...

Mack: Mommy, I love you too.. LOOK.. it stopped raining.. can I go outside now??

How could I have said no.... so out in the mud she went...

Another weekend..

Has came and went and it was a pretty nice one! Miss Em had a 2day sleep over, so we have been doing some girl things this weekend. Friday night we all went out for pizza and then hit up BlockBuster. Saturday we girls hit up the mall! Done some shopping, had some lunch, and on our way out we stopped for ice cream at Cold Stone! YUMMY! Sunday was church day, lunch, a nap, then we all went out for RED LOBSTER! Poor Britt didn't even want to go home, but she had to.. I mean the girl does have school tomorrow! LOL! All in all it was a pretty good weekend and Mack got some daddy time in and I got to spend soem time with my big girl! Life is good and God is GREAT!! :)

What a BEAUTIFUL Sunday!

WOW! The last 2 days have been AWESOME!! Sunshine and warm weather! Spring needs to hurry up and get here.. I got the fever!! :) Today was sunch a GR8 Sunday.. we went to church, headed over to my sis-n-law's house for lunch and hung out all afternoon on their back deck! Miss Mack played all day outside and just kept going without a nap. Miss EmmaLee spent the weekend with her Grand-daddy and finally made it to Midevil times... she couldn't stop talking about it once we picked her up! A few weeks ago Mack's bike was stolen off our street along with the little boy's bike next door. Someone really made those 2 very upset, so we decided to get Mack her new one this weekend... and we found a DORA bike that she just loves to death!! So, when we got home from spending the day at Mary's.. Paul got to crackin on getting the bike put together. Once he got it done.. he and Mack went to a ride and her smile was enough for me to know she was lovin it! This one will NOT be left sitting by the mailbox!! LOL! :) I don't think we could handle losing DORA! Here are a few pics of her bike.. I hope everyone who reads this had as GR8 of a day as I did!
