Myron and Sally Ammeter of Grand Island, Neb., and Amy Drake and Daniel of Maple Grove, Minn., visited the Ammeter farm Wednesday morning. Stan came later in the morning. Oh, did Great-Grandson Daniel have a good time and of course, so did Grandma. The cows and little calves Uncle Stan took him to see fascinated Daniel. They left about noon to go to Grandma Croney’s. I met them in Peabody where we ate lunch. After visiting Opal, they left for Grand Island. Doug Drake came to Myron’s to get his family Thursday and they returned to Minnesota Saturday morning. It sure was good to see them.

Blaine Ammeter of Ellinwood spent Thursday with me. Stan spent the afternoon. Blaine went to church with me. We had Maundy Thursday services. Pastor Dave had a great service. We had nine visitors from Peabody join us — Mrs. Ragland, Betty Banka, Mr. and Mrs. Patton, Mick and Noreen Weems, and Luba Brinkman. We really were glad to have them join us. Blaine left for home after church.

Steve and Melody Magette arrived late Friday afternoon at the Ammeter farm to spend the night.

We all got up early Saturday morning and headed for Eudora to Eric Magette’s for lunch and a baby shower for Crystal and Adam Magette. Bregan and Amanda Kantack, Bethany and Reagan were there from Colorado Springs, Colo. Myron and Sally Ammeter, Kevin and Emily Haxton, Avery and Elyse of Ellsworth, and Crystal and Adam Magette of Olathe came before lunch. After lunch, the great-grandchildren helped Great-Grandma decorate a bunny cake. Oh, what fun.

After lunch, the men took the kids to the park and we had a baby shower. Amanda, Kristin, and Emily were hostesses. Attending were mama-to-be Crystal, LaVonne, Melody, Sally, Crystal’s aunt, Jan, mother, and a friend. She had a lovely shower. After the shower, they all stayed for supper. We arrived back at the farm late evening.

We had church Sunday morning at Summit. Such a great service. Thanks to Pastor Ragland and Steve Glover. Melody and Steve went to church with me.

Easter Sunday dinner guests of LaVonne’s were Crystal and Adam Magette, Stan, Melody and Steve, Melissa Ramsey, and McKayla. It was a nasty day but we sure enjoyed visiting. They all left late afternoon.

Matt and Seyan Watts and Lydia arrived Tuesday morning at Aunt LaVonne’s to spend the morning and for lunch. We had such a good visit. Lydia is growing like a weed. They left after lunch for Missouri to visit George and Rose Watts for a few days.

Michele Brose visited LaVonne Tuesday evening.

I hope you all had a good Easter. It was a yucky day. Hope you all have a good week.
