We had a great Easter. It was finally a sunny warm day. Jeremy and Hayley blessed Fisher. Jer did a great job! We did a traditional egg hunt and clearly the kids had fun.

Kye's "mad skills"

Kye was playing with his friend and we all thought it was hillarious so I thought I would post it.

The Kids

These are my sister Hayley's kids. I love them so much. I just had to tell some of the funny things they say. Lucy is 4, Millie is 2 and Fisher is 7 months. My other sister, Emily, is also pregnant. She is due 1 week after me. Every time Millie sees us she asks "Where's yo baby?".
The other day Emily pointed at her stomach and answered "In my belly". Mille looked at her with big eyes and said "Did you eat yo baby?". Then Lucy asked if Emily's belly was going to crack open like an egg and the baby was going to pop out. Lucy has also chosen her favorite names for my baby and Emily's. They are Strawberry Shortcake and Tarzan. They are so funny! Little kids are the best!


Those of you who know me well know that I hate scrapbooking! Sorry to offend! I have tried and tried to like it but I just don't. My mother-in-law made Ashton an amazing book, about her baptism, on the computer. She used a company called Shutterfly. The book is so neat, we all just love it. Maybe I'm the last to know about this but I think it's great for those of us non-scrapbookers!

We'd like to introduce the newest member of the Welker family: Pinky! She does everything with us. She eats with us, sleeps with Ash and just about everything else you can imagine. Grandpa Mark and Grandma Cheryl took Ashton to Build-A-Bear for her birthday and Pinky was "born". Ash even chose a shirt just like one she has. I never knew a stuffed animal could bring so much joy!

Special Guests

Here are some pictures of our loved ones who made it out to support Ash! It did take special effort considering that the baptism was at 8:30 AM! We love you all!

Special Day!

Ashton had her big day on March 1st.It was such a great day. Her 2nd "real" birthday was on Friday Feb. 29th. It's so fun having a leap day birthday! Ash came down sick 2 days befor her birthday. She had a really high fever and we were nervous she would not be well for her baptism or birthday. Todd gave her a blessing and she was well in time for both. We now realize that this truly was a miracle because her sickness has been passed through the family and I have now been sick for 12 days. We're so grateful that she felt better in time to enjoy both.

Grandpa and Grandma Welker and Aunt Kristi were able to come up for a fun weekend. We're so blessed with great family and had a lot of support for the baptism. Ashton felt really loved!
