We had a photo taken of our entire family at my niece’s wedding in August.

Grandchildren and Easter
April 27, 2015

Our children and grandchildren were with us on Easter Sunday, and we had an egg hunt (plastic eggs filled with small goodies) at Sheryl and Ed’s house here in Harrisburg. Actually, our oldest grandson, Yohannes, was absent but the rest were there.

Ed and their daughter, Zariah.


The children clowning with bucket hats.

We are grateful for family times.

We thank God for our family near and far.



The Sheriff and the Bumblebee

For Trick or Treat night Jeffrey and Zariah (Sheryl and Ed’s younger two children) got dressed for the occasion.

They came home with enough candy and snack treats to last until they are 18 years old.
