Easter Thru The Generations

I wanted to post these pictures last week, but obviously time just got away, and it didn't get done! Hope everyone had a blessed and happy Easter! We had a good day with family and friends!

Tressie looked like she was ready for the Easter parade, all dressed up in her new dress and shoes. It's a good thing that her Mama didn't pay much for this hat because she wore it for about 15 seconds! She was a busy little girl keeping up with everything that went on. She wasn't really into hunting eggs, maybe next year.

This is Tressie's Mama, many years ago. I'm really not even sure how old she is in this picture. Don't remember if she liked her hat or not! Her Grandma Chisman always made her Easter dress.

This is a picture of me when I was probably about 3 years old. Mom ALWAYS made an Easter dress for Sheryl and I. They were always matching, sometimes different colors.

It's fun to look back thru the generations and see what has changed and what has basically stayed the same. The styles have changed, the faces have changed, many things have changed. One thing that will never change is the reason that we celebrate Easter. Our Risen Lord and Saviour!

Shopping Anyone?

Yesterday morning after Tressie had eaten her breakfast, she came walking into the office with her purse and jacket! I think that she was bored with Grandma and wanted to go somewhere! I would of thought that she was still tired from our shopping trip into Colorado Springs on Saturday. I'm still tired from it!

Her big goose egg on her head is MUCH better. Check out her blog at for pictures of the biggest, baddest, goose egg I'd ever seen!

Tressie & Grandma's Walk

Yesterday Tressie and I decided to take a walk. It was a fairly nice spring day. Just a breeze blowing, not hurricane force winds! OK, so we haven't had hurricane force winds, but we have had our share of hard and persistent winds this spring! A very nice day can be ruined with wind, in my opinion. I am not fond of wind! It makes me grumpy! Did you pick up on that?

Back to our walk....We always see goats around our house.

This heifer was very interested in what we were doing in her territory. Actually we weren't in her territory, because we were outside the corral! Tressie was also very interested in her!

We helped Grandpa run some drip hose for the new bushes that were planted yesterday. There is a row of plum, a row of cherry, and a row of sumac. We also planted 50 lilac bushes. These will serve as a snow fence on the north and east sides of our new house. Notice the ominous looking cloud in this picture? All we got was a couple of rumbles of thunder. That was enough to cause Tressie's dog, Lucy, to hole up for an hour. She HATES thunder!

We also found a sign of Spring! A cherry bush in an already established live wind break was blooming!

Here are some of those lilac bushes that we planted. Can't wait until they are big and blooming!

Tressie loved the walk! The only bad thing is, she cried when we had to come in and start making supper!
