April and then May

So, April ended with a bang. That banging noise was the sound of the other shoe dropping as I got layed off. Joe was now doing the job of 13 people instead of the jobs of 4 people.

(Kevin sums up Mom's opinion of being layed off.)

We knew things were bad. We both felt that the new parent company was bad news so it wasn't unexpected. But it was sudden.

Not a great way to end April but you can't have the highs (our anniversary, my Mom's birthday, my brother and sister-in-law's anniversary) without the lows.

In fairly short order I found new employment. It's a different schedule and a longer commute but everyone has adapted.

And, from the photos you see here, you see that we all survived, sense of humor intact. Between jobs I had a little down time playing the Wii with the boys and lots of cuddle time and all was right with the world. May came in like a newly employed lamb bringing along with it a visit from Oma, Opa and Auntie Diane. That story I will save for the next post as it's late and I must to sleep.

April and Easter

Shame on me. No posts since April and yet so much going on.
Tsk tsk tsk.

Here we are at the Haggerty's on Easter. Cindi, Rob, Joey and Molly hosted us this Easter with a lovely meal. They organized a fantastic Easter egg hunt for the boys. Kevin found the golden egg which meant an extra special goodie basket.

Here is Kevin waving the golden egg high above his head - a big victory wave.

Here are the boys using the binoculars that the Easter bunny gave them.

Cool dude Jumpy
