Here are a couple of pictures of the girls from Easter Sunday. It was pretty neat to hear Autumn running around that morning saying "Jesus Is Risen - Happy Easter - Jesus Is Risen - Happy Easter"

On Spring Break the girls had lots of fun - here is Jayna making a calendar.

Here is Autumn feeding her dogs - she loves loves loves dogs (we don't have any real dogs, she is just feeding her imaginary dogs)

Of course they had to color their Easter eggs.

And finally, Autumn decided to start wearing make up while the girls were home.

This N That

Just a couple of things from the past couple of weeks!!

As promised - a picture of the girls bunk beds. Autumn has loved being in a big girl bed and the transition has been very very good. They are pretty good to each other.

Jayna had decided that she wants to play softball this year. Here we are on a warmer day a couple of weeks ago tossing the ball around. Autumn had to join in the fun (of course) - she really wants to be a lefty - Yeah!!

Also a couple of weeks ago, some great friends of ours had their twins. Here the girls are enjoying one of them in the hospital - it was so so nice to finally meet these babies and the girls were very excited to hold them!!

And lastly, last weekend I had the wonderful opportunity of travelling to Oklahoma to stand up in the wedding of one of my friends. Pastor Shannon and Sarah were married last Saturday night. It was a wonderful couple of days with them.

Family Fun

As we are preparing for the new baby - we are also preparing to move Jayna and Autumn into the same room. Part of that preparation is going to be bunk beds (they were delivered on Monday - I will post pictures when I get them assembled and installed - I promise). In the new bedroom decor the girls also picked out some nifty curtains. I hung them the other night with a couple of helpers. Autumn is way too daring and would climb to the top of my ladder if I wouldn't stop her. Jayna had to join in the fun. Here are a couple shots of them being them!! They bring so much joy and love to us!!

Autumn Faith Hess

So our little Autumn hasn't been feeling well for the past few days - a little RSV, the stomach flu and a fever. So her and Jen have been spending days together while she is trying to get better. For those of you who know Autumn - you know how unusual it is to get a moment like this with her. Jen said that this was her all day yesterday. She was miserable.

On my way home from work I stopped and grabbed something that I thought would make her smile - hard to believe but Dad is still the hero!!

Here is also a picture of Jayna doing a school project - she had to take 100 things to school for the 100th day of school. She asked me if she could take some wirenuts, so I brought some home and here she is counting out 100 of them.

Lastly, Autumn is feeling much better today - after 2 days her fever broke last night (I think that it was the rocking horse - Jen doesn't necessarily agree) so today she was much more herself. Jen decided to go to church tonight so Autumn and I hung out. When she is ready to go to bed Jen usually carries her to her room whereas I let her walk. Tonight she was a few steps in front of me and I walked in her room to this: (of course this is reenacted for video sake)

Dead End Roads

I have had the joy of living on a dead end road basically my whole life. I grew up on a dead end dirt road that was only a few hundred yards long, when Jen & I bought our first house in Midland it was on a dead end road and then we moved to our current location on the end of a dead end. One of the many joys of living on a dead end road is the lack of traffic which basically allows you to play in the road. Here are a couple of pictures of us this winter including some of us playing in the road here and some of us playing in the road at Mom's.
