Our good friends the Knudsen's had an awesome Easter Egg Hunt! The kids, ages 5wks- almost three, went nuts! It was so fun to follow Manoah around as he hunted down eggs and tossed them in his basket. We did our best to keep him from stealing eggs out of the other kids baskets, but for sure he stole a few. Anyway- we had such a great time! Our friends have the cutest kids!

since Sam, Manoah, and i have been home together on an entire weekend! So we lived it up! We went to the beach and to the park with auntie Nida and Uncle Joe, we played at home and outside, We watched movies and played hide and seek (Manoah's new favorite game). It was a wonderful weekend for this Paschall family and now i am depressed that Monday is here :(

I apologize to those faithful followers of Manoah's blog for slacking big time on his blog. Let me just say that life has been a roller coaster recently. We had major problems with our internet and computer, but now I am back in business. Here are some recent pictures of Manoah. He loves, loves, LOVES, to brush his teeth (lets just hope this last into his teenage years!). The first pictures are when he is going at it with his tooth brush, then the tears come when mommy takes the tooth brush away. So sad. And... "hi auntie Carol, I loved spending time with you at the wedding! I promised more pictures and now i have delivered! Love you!"

I just got back tonight from a trip to Mammoth Lakes. I went snowboarding all day and had an absolutely incredible time - nothing like freshly groomed snow on a massive mountain with sunny 50 degree weather to enjoy. I hadn't been snowboarding in almost 5 years and it was long overdue, there is an exhiliration in this kind of sport that I had nearly forgotten. The endorphins rushing through my body were like the welcoming of an old friend. The picture below is me having a blast on the mountain.
I also got to take Manoah sledding for the first time. His first time down the hill I think I caught him off guard, but after that he really warmed up to it shouting "again, again" to myself, uncle Joe, and auntie Nas (Wanida). I also built a snowman for Manoah which he managed to kick to pieces in a matter of seconds - it made me wonder what he really meant this Christmas when he would say, "I lub boo Snowmane (e.g., I love you snowman)."
All that being said, some vacations are much needed, and this one was a delightful break where I was able to remember two important things - I am still only 27, and I am a 27 year old father.

It's hard to say if Manoah enjoyed his bag of pretzels or picking out a tree more? regardless, Sam and i loved it. Something about singing Christmas songs and friendly smiles with the Home Depot folk just make the heart happy. At least this year Manoah could say, "Chrissa Tree," which was pretty darn cool.
