A Night with Artist Steve Griffith

Back in October when we attended the CASA Festival of Chairs charity event, Paul and Sherri bid on and won the "Night with Steve Griffith" package.  They invited us to go with them for my birthday gift. We just recently had our night with the artist.

We were picked up by a limo!

This is Steve Griffith and his wife, Vivian Noe... She is also an artist
The event was also catered by Mike's Place...YUM!  After dinner we got to watch Steve paint!!!  

I seriously could not stop smiling the whole night.  I haven't painted since I was an art teacher and I miss it.  In this pic Paul was hugging me because he could tell how much this night meant to me!  I seriously wanted to cry I loved it so much!  I even told Steve that besides my wedding and my children being born, this night ranked very high for me!  

The painting was split.  Paul and Sherri get one side and we get the other!  I can't wait to have it framed!!!

We will definitely bid on this package next year!!!

Easter 2012

Ooops!  I forgot to add the pics of us after church when I did the Easter post before...  It was not a very fun photo op because Kohen was DONE with taking pictures.  Here's the best we could do!

It's been a FULL weekend of activities!  
I went to Kohen's school to help celebrate Easter on Friday.  

Then all of our friends got together this past Saturday to have a huge Easter egg hunt and crawfish boil.  

This was the first year Kohen understood what Easter was about and also the first year he understood what it was really like to hunt eggs!

This is Kohen and Saylor's sweet friend Audrey.  She is such a nurturing little girl.  Always so sweet and polite.  Kohen and Saylor adore her.

I LOVE this picture of Kohen, lol!

I love these boys!
Mike, Paul, Jason and Rick

The Easter bunny was VERY late getting to our house.  More than 24 hours late.  But tonight he showed up and the kids were very happy.

 (Please excuse the black spot at the bottom of the next few pictures... I had the wrong lens on the camera)

This is Saylor's 1st Easter.  I gave her my Easter basket that I had when I was a kid.  

Kohen got a little too happy about his m&m's and they busted all over the floor...

But his Daddy helped him "clean" it up ;)

Just for fun...
