The Long Easter Weekend


Tomorrow will be the final day of the 5-day weekend for the children. Juliana told me that she wishes that there was school tomorrow, so either the last 4 days have been boring or too much fun – let’s go with the later.

April Celebrations


During the awful, never-ending winter, I keep my eyes on the first week of April and our planned vacation. We were promised warmth and a much needed break. But as excited as I was, I was also dreading the craziness that April would bring.

You Capture: Easter

I posted some pictures of the kids in their Easter Sunday outfits last week. Saturday was a busy day of Easter activities. Mid-morning we went outside and played with bubbles and waited and waited.

After service we visited with friends and Juliana enjoyed a cupcake. She also showed us how . . . → Read More: Easter

Easter Eggs

Friday morning, Juliana, Daddy, Mommy and Nonni dyed Easter Eggs. Juliana got right into it by coloring her first egg with the crayon with scribbles. She started out using the egg holder to move the egg around and was very intent on the process. Later on she just used her hands and they were . . . → Read More: Easter Eggs

Thanks Easter Bunny!

In this case – Thanks Uncle Nick and Aunt Becky! Juliana loved her surprise box of Easter treats. She had lots of fun pulling the packing materials out and scattered the packing peanuts along the hallway. She wanted to eat the cookie right away
