Our weekend

**Giveaways (1 & 2) ending tomorrow.**

Happy Easter, everyone out there in blogland! :) Just wanted to share a few pictures from this weekend. I've decided I will be adding more personal info and pics to my blog on the weekends so you can get to know me better. Post a link to your blog in the comments because I'd like to get to know you, too!

We found a cute little turtle while walking on Friday (we let him go after a few hours), and the girls had a great Easter morning. :)



Dying (and eating) eggs.



And, of course, Sapphire stealing an egg from her sister's basket!


Unfortunately, St. Louis was hit by tornadoes this weekend. :( On Good Friday, a steeple was torn off a local church while services were going on. St. Louis/Lambert airport was closed down all weekend. It's only partially up and running now. Hundreds of homes were destroyed, almost 50,000 were without power. There is going to be a lot of flooding in the area, as it has been raining for a week straight and there are no signs of it letting up until Wednesday or Thursday.

This is INSIDE the airport.. you can see out into the parking lot..



Outside the airport...


On the highway (Hwy 270 was closed in BOTH directions for HOURS):


We got 4" hail.




Please keep St. Louis in your thoughts (and prayers, if you pray), as we have not seen anything like this in over 40 years. The news said it was an F4 tornado that did most of the damage. Another tornado missed our home by only a few miles. :(
