He Is Risen


We were blessed with the most delightful Easter weekend. We had an action packed, celebratory weekend full of egg hunts, family time, good food, great weather, and excellent fellowship. Saturday we spent the morning at Justin’s parents house hunting eggs with all the cousins. After church on Sunday we joined the family back at Justin’s parents house for Easter lunch and more fun with the cousins. Here we are for a rare family photo. Thanks, Dona for taking it!


Here are some more pictures from our weekend… {embedded slideshow may not come through Reader}

A very big thank you to my blog friend, Becky, for the happy I found tucked in my mailbox. Next time we will play!!!

Happy Monday friends. It’s pouring down rain and I’m about to tackle mounds of laundry and dishes!

    Hey Darby- It is Katie (Morris) Moore. I have been a reader for about two months now and adore keeping up with you and your family through your blog. I gave a shout out to your “power…” blog on my blog after I used it with my two-year-old Wils. He wasn’t quite as focused as your precious girls, but we still had fun talking about/acting out the drama 🙂 Miss you girl– and sending love your way.

    Your Easter pictures are just lovely. You have such beautiful family. I’m a new reader of your blog, and I’ve loved everything I read so far. I can’t wait to spend some time exploring past posts. Also, I love the silhouette banner you have at the top. Did you design that yourself?
