Cuteness Alert: This post is filled with sweet little boys! Insulin shock warning!
Early in the week I got a few Easter cards out. There's a story to
these -- a few years ago I made an Easter banner. Well, it was looking a
little long in the tooth but I still loved the images on the bunting so
I cut them up and added them to cards! A good creative outlet.
It was quite the Easter weekend, starting on Good Friday evening when Mark and Jan came over to do eggs and our annual "Life of Brian" viewing.
We managed to do quite a few and fairly fast -- with fairly little mess!
I made the most wonderful thing and I have one of you to thank for it. Please 'fess up, because I can't remember which blog steered me toward Ina Garten's easy risotto which was to die for, and suggested grilled shrimp with it. Fabulous. And even better on my new bunny plates! (Whoever it was, thanks for this!) (This just in -- it was Sandra from Maison de Jardin! Thanks for telling me!)
Guess what was for dessert!
Saturday was grim and gloomy and made a little scarier when Rick called at 4 a.m. with breathing problems. We think in the end it was probably a drug reaction with the Advil and Eloquis but it was pretty freaky at the time, worrying about those clots. His follow-up with the surgeon is Thursday and it will be good to get the news. He was given a bit more upright-time so that's been a plus.
Sunday brought us the serious cuteness we so sorely needed!
Little Big Guy loved his basket with some little cars, and a book.
I think the favorite might have been the play doh!
We also did an Easter egg hunt for him. The night before, Rick and I stuffed plastic eggs with animal crackers and goldfish. But we weren't sure how a two-year old would do with this.
He took to it like a duck takes to water!
Little Little Guy was too young to get that but he was into the spoils.
Although there were moments when sharing didn't seem like it was going all that well!
It was such a gorgeous day -- close to, if not, 70 degrees. So Molly, the boys and I took boys on a walk down to the Ditch to see if we could seem some critters.
The ducks were out some, the geese all the more so.
And they certainly captivated this little guy!
Even the wiggly Little Little Guy was into it!
And then back home, where the menfolk were at the grill.
And look who's upright!
There were smiles...
...only occasional tears.
And oodles of love, more than enough to go around.
A basket full of eggs...
... a blue sky, the people you love.
I'd call it a perfect day!
