Well…

I should have said that I’d be blogging more LIFE permitting.  Sadly we had a loss in the family (yes it was expected, no it doesn’t really make it any easier).  We were so happy that Great-Grandma C got to meet LS.  She was an amazing and strong lady, and she will be missed dearly.

We love you!

We love you!

*sigh*  Now that I’ve brought everyone down with me, onto the happy shall we?

We had a very laid back Easter at my grandma’s house.  Including special guest Uncle Andy who was visiting us on leave from his Army training!

Big group, big ham, big fun!  Little Sheep even got to participate in her very first egg hunt!  (With some help from Grandma!)

Maybe the Easter Bunny should have brought her some tiny sunglasses...

My Papa always hides Easter eggs around their one acer yard for all the grandkids.  The only problem was, we were never sure if we’d found them all or not (he is a very good hider).  It got to the point where Papa would have a count of all the eggs he’d hidden, so we could tell when we had them all.  Somehow, we still would be finding eggs come July, filled with icky, melted, buggy chocolate.  After one too many of these July eggs ended up thrown across the yard by the ride along lawn mower, Papa started making maps.

This year was no different, except he made the map after the fact and only remembered where 22 of the 24 eggs were hidden.  This has turned into quite the joke hunt, as the youngest of the grandkids (shown below) is 15, and we’ve long since forgotten about the Easter Bunny.  (I guess we’ll be starting up again with LS.)

I love this picture.  It starts out as all of the grandkids humoring Papa, then, it turns into a competition to see who can find the missing eggs.

You’ve never seen so many adults looking so hard for a few little eggs!

LS was more interested in the tag on the bunny bottom of her Easter gift from her Great-Grandma, than any of the eggs.  But it did make for the sweetest photo shoot 🙂

It was a beautiful day, with not a lot of time to knit *sigh*.  I have been plugging along on my mini shawl though.  I’m dying to have it done by this Saturday to wear to a monthly craft fair that I will be checking out as a potential spot to sell yarn in the future.  Although I might look a little silly wearing a scarf when the temp is supposed to be 80+.  Oh well, the sooner I finish the sooner there will be pictures, and a new pattern 😉

Hope you all had a nice holiday weekend!
