Happy Easter to all my faithful readers!!
So I am back on FB as of last night, even though Pam deemed that a wee bit too early....and wow, it's great to be back, but I have to say I really enjoyed the break. Not only from a time perspective, but a clarity perspective. When I logged on and all the ads and page updates hit, it was like watching TV with only commercials. And since I only ever watch DVR'd TV, I never have to deal with commercials. The break has certainly made me rethink my usage of FB, and what I choose to view. And how often I choose to view it...I think that will be the biggest difference.
Today was an interesting day, we were up early, the kids were a bit crazy from starting their day with jelly beans and malted eggs. And of course, there was the inevitable squabbling. Is there a family out there whose kids don't compare who got what? If so, I'd like to meet them, because that is so not my kids. I hope this is something they will outgrow, the quicker the better. How do you teach them to be happy with what they have, and to not worry about what others have?
We made it to Mass an hour before it began, which gave us time to get our normal seats and save room for my parents. And time for me to capture the following shots of Sophie, who was serving her first Mass with her friend Colby.
We were fortunate to have all the grandparents come over in the afternoon for dinner. It was nice to sit on the pollen free deck (thanks to Terry) and enjoy the beautiful day. And the MANY eggs that our own Easter Bunny Terry had hidden for the kids.
Nana, Terry and the kids waiting to start the hunt.
Pure excitement, I love this shot.
I tried out the panoramic feature on my camera while the kids were digging into their baskets this morning. I did this so I could give my husband props. We are fortunate to have a great backyard, but it would not be so without his many hours of sweat equity. So here's a shout out to you Ter: THANKS for working so hard to give us a beautiful place to play and unwind.
And speaking of my talented husband, can you guess which egg below was his? Admit it, who else likes to make "the ugly egg"?
