This past weekend was Great - with a capital G. Most of our family made it in, and Mama & Papa's house was packed. Love it that way...when the house feels too small (cause it really is), with the noise of children running and playing, and the ever so wonderful smell of Mama constantly in the kitchen feeding anyone and everyone who will eat. Yes, it was a Great Easter weekend. Rachel, Leslie & I had so much fun stuffing eggs and hiding them in the backyard. But that wasn't the best part. The best part came when Ryan and Gabby were let loose to hunt the eggs. Those kids, my cousins, are such a blast! They cleaned up...much to their parents dismay of too much chocolate and candy. Ryan DID originally have a normal easter bucket, but once that was full, he had to grab a BIGGER bucket. As you can see, he was in pure bliss (very zealous to pose for the camera). Finally, after the hunt was over, all us grandkids gathered around the tripod for a group photo. I think it turned out well considering we had 2 kids with extreme sugar-rush.
And of course, Easter would not have been complete without those infamous Peeps chicks! I don't like them -- at all, one bite, and I am quickly reminded why. But they do look oh-so appealing. So yes, even the Peeps had a photo shoot. I know, I'm a dork.
And today, I was blessed with another good day off. No school, no work. Me time to do as I pleased. So I scrapbooked (of course), uploaded pictures, did some over-due laundry, and ah, my point of this entry --- I painted my toenails. A very proud moment for my sister who is always hounding me about taking care of my feet!
