Hannah was invited to her first sleepover this weekend, and it was actually for most of the weekend! The invitation came from the Alvarado girls, Audrey & Isabel, who are in Hannah's class at Montessori and who are also friends from church. They have become big buddies this year, and it's fun to see them together. Hannah went home with the girls after school on Friday, and we didn't see her again until we picked her up at church today. Wow - I missed her. But, I don't think she missed me much at all. She had a fabulous time! She got to play with Barbies, ride a horse, jump on a trampoline, build a bird feeder at Lowe's, and sport some lovely eye makeup. She even got a Fayetteville Police Dept. tattoo! Here are some pictures of her enjoying being a "big girl." Boy, she seems like she's grown up so much in the past few months.

Tonight marked the end of Cub Scouts for Jacob. He can now call himself a Boy Scout! We attended his Arrow of Light Ceremony, held in the cafeteria at Vandergriff. Seventeen boys from Jacob's den were awarded the Arrow of Light this evening, a pack record! The ceremony was prescribed and relatively formal (for what these boys are used to in Scouts). Each boy was called up to get special pins, one for their uniform, and one for their mother. So sweet. Each boy was also given a special plaque made by a dad of one of the scouts in the Vandergriff pack. Jacob will be joining Troop 116. I'm a little sad that he won't be in the same troop that his older cousins were a part of, but all of his friends will be joining 116, so it's really the better place for him to be.

We had a great Easter celebration today. We started our day with a great worship service at church, then we headed to Ann's house for Easter lunch. We missed James & Allison and Jeremy & Katie, who usually are with us for this holiday, but Lisa brought several new friends from college, so we still had a full table. The weather was so nice, that the kids played outside most of the afternoon and evening.
