Happy Birthdays & Happy Easter

This past weekend we celebrated birthdays and our Risen Savior, so let me tell you about it in order.

April 6

The 6th of every month, both our great grandboys get a month older.  Last Thursday Jax turned 9 months old and as you can see, he is "SO BIG" and a happy boy.
Landon completed his first year and is just about to fill out that sweater.  It is pretty obvious that we have personality overload in these two, and we could not love them any more.

April 8

This is our oldest granddaughter's birthday and she turned 30 and we are still wondering how that happened overnight.

Chandler gladly shared her birthday with her cutie pie and gave him the best 1st birthday party.  Landon looks just like his daddy except he has his mother's beautiful lips and smile which is pretty obvious in this adorable picture.

The party theme was "A Hole in One!"  Pretty clever since his dad and pops are both big golfers.

His CoCo, my daughter rehabbed this cute golf cart and customized it just for him.

He wasn't too sure about it at first but before long he took on the celebrity status of a Masters Champion and loved it.

The birthday cake was another matter.  He just wasn't into smashing and eating that cake and much preferred sharing it with his mommy and daddy.

This party has been declared a great success and again, we wonder how this happened overnight.

Easter Sunday

Following a wonderful worship service and an overflow crowd of 7,500 in our service alone, we enjoyed a delicious lunch with our daughter and her family.  On the left by me are David and Emily who will be giving us our third great grandson in August.  In the middle is Ava Grace who will be inducted into the Honor Society of her HS tomorrow.  On the right by Dick is Cassidy who be having a birthday next month.  Good things just keep happening.

And here we are with both the birthday honorees.

Across the country in Northern Indiana, our son and his family were celebrating Easter together at their church.

On the far right are granddaughters Mary-Elizabeth and Savannah.  Savannah will also be celebrating another birthday in early May and her mother, Michelle in June.  They just keep coming, but we wouldn't have it any other way.

And this tells the story about what life may be like at the Day house.

Have I already mentioned something about personality overload?

I trust your weekend was as eventful and glorious as ours was.
