Naughty Raquel

Raquel was very upset to find that her upcoming birthday
did not make the headlines. The result was disastrous.

Remember when...

It was one year ago that I was one day overdue. My feet
looked extremely unnatural and felt ready to explode, and
I was desperate to feel anything remotely resembling a
contraction so we could rush to the hospital and finally have the baby.

Everything was ready, EXCEPT for Raquel.

This is one of the few pictures I have of myself while I was
pregnant. (and the only one of Dylan being pregnant:)

Weekend overview

Here is Raquel, caught red-handed ripping up
toilet paper and unfolding the washcloths.

Aunt Jenna does an excellent job of entertaining her niece.
Raquel likes to go fast and feel the wind blow.

Dylan, Derek, Nathan, Josh, Evan and Stefan- killing each other
mercilessly and having a wonderful time together:)

Sunday was a gorgeous day. Here, father and daughter enjoy the beautiful weather. We were waiting for Mom and Dad to come pick us up and go to the Fireside, where we saw Fiddler on the Roof (my favorite movie ever:) thanks Dad and Mom

Spring Blizzard...err...Break!

Last week was our 'spring break' so we had the week off of school. However, the conditions were not very spring like as we had 8 inches of snow on Wednesday, and the rest of the week the temps were in the 20's and 30's. In spite of the cold, we did manage to enjoy ourselves. We spent most of the time at my parents house, and, as you can see, Raquel had plenty of playmates.

Here is Raquel playing with her Grandpa Blaubach (who, by the way, is 48 years young today:) Happy Birthday Dad!!

Good Friday

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless
Your name

Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

Drama Queen-
I guess Thursday was a very tiring day for Raquel,
it's not easy being 11 months old you know.

Church Nursery-
Raquel had her pick of the fine young men in the nursery this morning-
except for Elijah of course- he's family:)

Sweet skills

Dylan's soccer team won 10-5 tonight, here he is scoring a goal.
