|Easter has come and gone, but the pictures are yet to be seen. And we can't have that, now can we? Of course not! So sit back and view our pictures from our Easter dinner.|
|My older sister and her kiddos were loving the family time. Kayla's shirt "I love bacon" is hilarious! So in this photo you may see Kayla (the tallest), next to her mom, Alisha, and then Candin and Cooper with Kade in front!|
|The Jeff and the Becky|
|And this crazy lot seems to be my posterity.|
|......yes, I am the cutest baby ever!|
|And although she won't come to me for anything, she does have her favorite..............Candin!|
|Seriously mom, these pictures are going to kill me!|
|...and the trampoline is always a hit!|
Oh, that's how!

If you don't know the Johnson family, then you won't know about the "Easter Fish" tradition that happens every year at our house. It is a tradition handed down from Morgan's family. Morgan's dad claims that a "fish" is more appropriate than a "bunny" to celebrate Easter. So each year we all line up and grab the pole with the basket tied on it and take our turn at the upstairs balcony. And if we are lucky, the "Easter Fish" will visit and fill the basket with goodies.
Now, this year we had a 1st timer in the clan. (I can still remember years ago when I was a 1st timer as well.)Juliet and her boyfriend were visiting from Seattle, so Brian needed to know how to fish for his loot. Sarah was very excited to teach him how it works.
p.s. I just found the candle Karen bought for your cake, so maybe you can turn 67 again next year!

Let me set the scenario of this past Wednesday evening. It was about 5 o'clock and everything was "Johnson house normal", meaning, kids were running around playing, Grandma Karen was doing my laundry, Morgan was just about home from work and my body was tired, so I laid down for a quick nap in the guest room. A few minutes later, Morgan popped his head in to let me know he was home from work. then he said, "Come out front and see something really neat" I groaned and slowly rose to my feet. Following him out the front door, I was greeted with the above site...
I walked up close and jumped when the flames started....loud and hot!
All the neighbors were ooohing and ahhhing over the huge balloon. Then they turned to me and said, "Christa, do you want to ride in a hot air balloon?" WHAT? I was still torn between seeing the balloon and going to hang out with Will at a safe range. But I turned and looked at all the neighbors faces and my kids and hubby encouraging me and said, "sure." knowing full well that my two greatest fears in life are balloons and heights. hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
