Hoppy Easter! Our Easter was somewhat bittersweet. The weekend started on Saturday with a little birthday party for our nephew, Ethan. It's so nice to be around family & friends, I really do love it. A little shout-out to my brother who quit smoking and was nearing a week.. so proud of him! We had yummy food, cupcakes and lots of laughs. Abbie decided to color her arm with a very nice navy blue crayola marker while I was chatting with the girls in another room. THAT was fun! lol! I didn't get a picture myself but I'm sure I can get one as there were about 5 cameras there! I did snap a few pictures but nothing that I liked *sigh* except for these few of Lucy... is she not the most adorable thing ever???
Later that night however, we heard an accident over the scanner & hubby's pager (he's a volunteer firefighter). We learned this was a friend of ours who was struck by a vehicle while taking a walk - tragic accident. She passed away early Sunday morning so Easter was both happy & sad for us. She was a lovely woman of only 37 and a 5th grade teacher. She had 2 boys and touched many, many lives with her beautiful smile. She will be missed dearly. ♥
I didn't really get too many good shots of the girls on Sunday morning. We did video for a change and actually sat on the floor to play with them instead of on the sidelines! Here is a quick shot of their Easter baskets though!
After breakfast and naps and 20 pieces of candy later... we were off to my Sister's house for food, family & fun once again! We had an egg hunt for the kids in the backyard and then yummy stuff prepared by my Sis the Awesome Cook! It was fantastic! The girls were NOT in picture mode though so my pictures are something to be desired, lol. Oh well, they all can't be perfect! They did look cute in their dresses though and had a good time, that's all that matters!!
I hope you had a nice Easter as well!! Bring on SUMMER!!
