First: WOW! Long time no see! No real reason. Just downloaded um, over 500 pictures, so should be good to go with posting for a while!
Anyway, hope your Easter – last week! – was peaceful and prayerful and fun!
My first real post on this blog was last year’s Easter post! I can’t believe I have been at this, albeit haphazardly (quite evidently the last few weeks), for a year now!
And rereading last year’s post I am reminded again why I am doing this blog. First, I like having a place to journal my sewing. A constant show-and-tell is lots of fun, and its great to have all my crafts in one spot. Although I must admit I have neglected to put a lot on here. What’s up with that?
Second, I love having a place to put those cute little stories of my girls. I had already forgotten that Julia used to wake up with her finger firmly placed on one of her pajama snaps, and apparently that was just a year ago!
Now, on to news about the kiddos and then in the next day or two I’ll have quilty stuff to share!
We had a fun Easter this year, spending the first part of the weekend with my family in Houston and finishing with my husband’s family here in Austin.
Julia totally rocked the Easter Egg Hunt in Houston. Granted, her competition was just a bunch of babies, literally, so the fact that she knew what she was doing gave her a bit of an advantage. (She was in the 0-2 years age group). Julia was being, oh, just a bit clingy to me, so I stuck with her during the egg hunt.
See, I told you, Julia = just a bit clingy. Meanwhile, Elena would have hugged and talked to the Easter bunny all day if she had her druthers.
Elena had Grammy trying to keep up with her during the egg hunt. Elena did not quite rule the field as Julia did. She’d get SO excited about the next bunch of eggs over there that she’d only pick up 1 where she was and then dash off again!
Elena walking back from the hunt hand-in-hand with Grammy. Elena’s the hot pink spot on the right.
And look! Elena & Julia’s baby cousin came out for her first egg hunt!
For inquiring minds re: the cord coming out: No, it’s not part of the sling. Morgan’s out of the hospital but still wearing a heart monitor for at least another month.
Just 2 years ago Julia enjoyed her first egg hunt in the same sling. Awwww!:
Must. Munch. Baby Toes.
Here in Austin we braved a very full church, but had a peaceful walk to the car where the girls just made my heart full by choosing to walk hand-in-hand to the car. LOVE THEM. (By the way, we are fairly regular church-goers, but with how crazy-full the church is on holy days, we are genuinely tempted to skip those days. Isn’t that nuts? But man, fighting for a seat is rough!)
See what’s in Julia’s hand??? YES, its a chocolate bunny, all wrapped up! Julia held it through the entire mass! By the time we got it home, it was a little melty from all of her hugs and caresses, but still closed. We had to put it in the refrigerator before allowing her to eat him up.
I’ll be back soon with the quilty and the crafty. I didn’t make anything for my girls this year for Easter despite lots of plans, but I have plenty of other stuff to share!
QUILTY STUFF?!?! WHERE?!?!? I don’t see any!! I’ll believe it when I see it!
