I was trying to think of a title for this picture.  There are just too many things to say about these 3 friends.  Sooooo much has gone on and so much history.  I’ve lived with all 3 at some point.  (not REALLY with Kendra but few could argue that we don’t live together now).  And I can’t imagine my life without their influence, support and love.  And we had the pleasure of all having our last babies at nearly the same time.

From riding an abandon horse up a mountain, to staying up waaaaay too late talking about boys, to the way that we communally raise our kids.  We’ve aged together and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Thanks for a fun night of food, kids playing, and jamming’ the 90′s Christian radio hits.  Rich Mullins, PFR, Audio A, Keith Green, Petra kept the night alive.

  • Carrie Tennant Shumaker - Love!

  • Ceci LaBarge - Beautiful photo, beautiful friends!

We put sod in the backyard.  It was pretty amazing to have an instant lawn.The kids had to stay off of it for 2 weeks.  Here they are on it for the first time after that long snowy winter.


Jared’s parents visited for the weekend.  We hiked, shopped 8th street, and had lunch at Boatwerks.  Huck even managed to spill Jared entire Oberon onto his lap, breaking the glass.  Jared’s dad snapped this pic of Huck.  HUck has been creeping around for about 2 weeks now and doing a lot of planks.

  • Johanna Poole - Oh man! I’m glad you still have that onesie!

  • Ann Brown Bowers - Perfect!

Growing up we did Easter eggs a little differently.  We’ve taking the Dean method into our Henderson family, it works well for us.  Each kid has 2 egg colors.  We hid the eggs around the house according to the kid’s hunting skills and then they look for only their eggs.  I buy small lego sets and fill the eggs with a couple of legos in each and the instructions.  They also have coins, and pieces to a craft in their eggs.  Jared and I have a fun time hiding the eggs in creative places.

This is Dale’s favorite stuffed animal, named Leia.
You gotta look closely for your eggs!
