Easter Pics....better late than never!

We didn't have Easter on Easter Sunday. I was exhausted and still feeling 'icky' from allergy stuff. Ruthi wasn't feeling 100% and had been dealing with a runny nose for a couple days. CJ woke up at 5:30 that morning 'barking' with the croup. And, I had spoken to Chip at work on Saturday and he wasn't feeling well, so I knew he was probably going to want to come home and sleep. And that's what we did. We slept in. We did catch the service on line, which I suppose, is the next best thing to being there. Anyway, we relaxed and rested all day.
We had Easter the following Sunday. We headed south, stopping on the way to pick up CJ, as he had spent Friday and Saturday night at Chip's parents' house. Then onto my parents' house where my Mom had lunch ready. She had wonderful Easter baskets for the kids - they were personalized and stuffed full. And she had clothes for each of them - several shirts for CJ (which he needed!), a couple of really cute outfits for Ruthi and a new Dora nightgown. I think they were both quite pleased.
We had planned to color and hunt eggs, but it was so incredibly windy and chilly that we decided against it. CJ didn't care, and Ruthi didn't know the difference so we just didn't do it. I kinda miss having cute pictures of Ruthi hunting eggs, but it'll be ok! We decided to play a game my Mom had picked up. We had to re-title it though, at least until Ruthi fell asleep. It is called "Fact or Crap" and is a VERY fun game! However, we changed 'crap' to 'fiction' as we did NOT want her running around saying crap - and she would have for sure! We played right up until it was time for us to head back home.
Here are a few pictures of the kids and their Easter baskets, and a cute little Easter Bunny!


  1. LOVE the sunglasses! I've seen Fact or Crap in the store and wondered if it was any good. We love board games, so I'll have to keep an eye out for that one!

  2. So sorry you were all feeling so lousy on Easter! But it sounds like your "make-up day" was very nice. Your kids are both absolutely darling!
    I've almost bought that game for my brother a couple times, but stopped myself because I didn't know if it was any good. Now I'll know to just get it.
