One of these days I'll snag some semblance of a framer.
I hope you and yours are enjoying a wonderful Easter. I would say we're keeping things low key but we always keep things low key when it comes to holidays and so ... we're keeping things normal. The Easter Bunny brought candy and green pepper seeds (Sebastian has been on a "grow vegetables" kick and I recently found him burying spinach leaves in the back yard) and the kids were beyond thrilled. In a rare twist of morning fortuity Phoebe slept in until 10am (all of the !!!!!!!!!'s) and missed our little egg hunt which was most definitely for the best. Simon took the four roosters out to grab a coffee for the resident, "given up coffee eight times for lent and finally stuck to it on the ninth try" female. Ahem. Simon has been on call all weekend but the beauty of fellowship is that call means: pager call so he's been around and we made it to Mass on time with minimal parking drama. Wins all around.
In lieu of a family photo (no photographer on the fly) we tried to do girls and boys which worked out well ...
an unwilling Phoebe was happy to jump in with the boys ...
and offered a winning smile.
Noted, Phoebe. Very much noted.
Julia told us during Mass that she wished she was four (cut off age for the nursery) no fewer than four times and Theo all but threw himself on the ground (see top photo) in protest when he realized that there were no post-church donuts to be had because there is nothing Theo loves more. Solidarity, T.
And now I'm going to try my best to ignore the leftover Reese's Eggs taunting me from their pantry haunt while I sneak some pages of my book before tackling Easter dinner prep (not ham or lamb ... sorry tradition) while the kids nap.
