Easter 2008

Happy Easter
from everyone at Starfish.


Easter arrived a little too soon this year. I would have loved to go outside and take pictures but as you can see that did not happen. It was way to cold outside so we were inside the apartment in my make shift studio. I added more than 200 pictures to that collection of mine. Thanks to everyone who helped. You have no idea what a production it is to get babies changed and pictures taken. There is a film student who is making a documentary on me for his film class and he brought his really expensive Canon over and spent the afternoon taking pictures.

As you can see there are no pictures of the older boys. We could not find any Easter clothing, since I was not very well prepared. Usually I have to have everything in one place otherwise there is no chance of finding things later. So that was just to let you know I did not forget anyone on purpose (Gabriel, Benjamin and Sean).

I am in Shanghai right now with Toni and Paul--and since it is Good Friday, we has some Hot Cross Buns, which is a very British/Australian/South African thing to eat. It was delicious. Something I have not had since 1988 when I left South Africa. It is amazing how quickly the memories came flooding back of home after just one bite.

Life, Love and Laughter,

I love when I have time to come by and visit with you a bit. :) Being at your blog is a bit more like a real visit than the email updates.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter! May God bless you as richly as you are blessing your children and those of us who are privileged to share your life thru your blog and ministry.

HUGS, Nicole

Dear Amanda,
Thanks for the Easter wishes (even though you don't know me) and the cute pictures of your babies. They cheered me up when I was feeling a little down.
Hot cross buns are a Canadian tradition too. A happy and blessed Easter to you too!
