family matters

We had an amazing time with my awesome family the past few days. But fun times always require a recovery period, and looking ahead at this week’s schedule, I want to curl up in a ball. Four soccer games, eight meetings/appointments, a speaking engagement, and a yard sale.

Not to mention all the beautiful friends I’m aching to catch up with online or chat with face to face.


I’ll be around here as much as I can. But there might be more pictures than words. Here’s a sneak peek at just how much fun a Yoder Family Gathering can be.

Speaking of the Yoder Family, my cousin Jen (who I’ve blogged about before) wrote “I’m pregnant with twins!” on her Facebook wall Friday, aka April Fool’s Day. My sisters and I loved reading all the comments throughout the day since we had insider information that IT WAS TRUE!! She wins the prize for Best April Fool’s Not-Joke EVER! Congratulations, Jen and Devin! (read their story here)

Anybody get fooled on Friday? I believed pretty much everything I heard.

    such a cute family pic!! Good luck with all of your stuff this week. I love that your sister really WAS pregnant with twins… bet that was hilarious!

    It’s a little creepy how similar your cousin and me are. Except I am really hoping for only one in there. I think we will have a similar due date. Our anniversary is also October 10th, we were in Africa during the first trimester and the pregnancies were surprises……!

    My daughter has those same pants (in the bottom picture)! But not the wig, sunglasses, and boa, I’m afraid.

    Glad you had such a good time with family!

    lol about the April Fool’s Day joke! My sister found out on April Fools Day that she is pregnant! But the only person she told that day was her husband, and he knew she wasn’t joking.

    Best April Fools of my entire life. 😀 Loved it and the comments had me laughing all day – both the ones that were actually fooled and the handful that were “playing along”” with clever comments. Excellent.

    Glad you had a fun weekend with your fam!!! Time with loved ones is so refreshing. That’s the best before a crazy week. Yard sale? You’re a brave woman!
