Anyway, the Sunday before Resurrection Day, we had an egg hunt for the kiddos at church. It was chilly and VERY windy but I think all the kids had a good time.
That Sunday night after church, we headed to Grandmommy and Papa's house for Southside's Annual Bible Conference.

|Fundraising to bring baby Isaiah home from Ethiopia!|
And of course we took them to the Old Plantation in Medicine Park which has become our favorite place to eat.
That Saturday we loaded up and headed to Oklahoma City to visit the zoo. We all had a lot of fun but after two hours, we still had not seen everything and were all wiped out!
Our company had to head back after church on Resurrection Day but snapped these picks for us before they left.
And here I am at 17 weeks. (baby blog update coming soon!)
Last Wednesday I got a call that everyone dreads. My Uncle Mack passed away. So I packed Elijah and myself up and headed to Mount. (Jordan had to stay here to preach another funeral) Uncle Mack was one of the most honest men that I have ever met. The one thing that I will never forget about him is how he helped whoever he could, in whatever way, to realize their potential. I will dearly miss this man. Please keep my family in your prayers, especially my Aunt Karen, over the next few weeks.
Although the circumstances of my visit to Mount were unfortunate, I still enjoyed seeing my family. There's just something about that place that never fails to pull on my heartstrings!
I also enjoyed getting to see my sister-in-law Ashley and her precious baby bump! We are due only one week apart!
So now that I am back home, I am trying to focus on a few projects. Do y'all remember that room that I was converting into a huge closet? Well, I'm still getting part of my wish. I'll just be sharing it with baby girl's clothes, crib, etc. Jordan built the closet unit himself and I think it turned out awesome. I was in the middle of painting her crib yesterday when this storm and cold front rolled in. Now I guess I'll have to wait until it warms up again to finish it!
