I must say as I begin this blog, I am some what intimidated by it. I did start a family blog several years ago and really didn't do that much with it. I find myself needing a challenge and hopefully I want to develop some online friends through this means. I need a new beginning, but after seeing the devastating pictures from Japan, my losses that I have endured last year seem small and insignificant in comparison.
Just to give a little explanation of the title of my blog 4 & Fifteen. It comes from my four beautiful, grown daughters, who are in the trenches of motherhood and raising our 15 grandchildren.....hence the 15. I consider them my treasures. If you remember the movie Sarah, Plain & Tall, she referred to her spinster aunts in Maine as the "unclaimed treasures." I always loved that, so my 4 & Fifteen are MY claimed treasures.
What better time to talk about new beginnings, than March in Iowa and the end of winter. I always enjoy my Easter decorations so much. I thought I would share with you some of my fav Easter decorations.
