Almost.  She did it herself!

Easter Fun

This is the only time of year we ever remember to get a shot of the whole family.  

Hey, it was hot.

On the hunt.

"I think we found them all!"

Trying to keep up with the twins.  She walked around happily while the twins were racing blurs.

Showing off their spoils.

I see you!

Getting the hang of paddle ball.


Fierce determination.

The Condensed Version

Addie narrating the Easter story using the resurrection set on our mantle:

"But Mary went a tomb, but He's not in the tomb.  But then Peter, he's at a tomb but not Jesus.  But then, surprise! Jesus is alive!  Clap your hands!"'

Mystery Seedlings

We've been keeping a close eye on the seedlings coming up in our garden lately.  The kids love going out and watering them and pulling out weeds and grass.  The other day though, I noticed several seedlings coming up where they shouldn't be.  It would seem that while helping to plant the seeds one of the kids got a hold of a packet and dumped the seeds around our okra plants.

You can see the cluster at the bottom of the picture, I count around 8... and that's just what was in frame.  (The okra plant is at the top.)

The problem I'm having is that I can't identify these seedlings.  I have looked up pictures of everything that we planted (okra, sugar snap peas, romaine, dill, beets, and green onions), and none of them look like like these. 
They look like mini tree leaves, not the thin green leaves that I expect to see.

These are actually the real leaves.  The first to grow are thin and green, but the second set (or first real set) are these reddish, jagged leaves.  

Anyone have a guess?
