Hi en deek

#110 “Hi en deek” She has really become interested in Hide and Seek, but she doesn’t quite get how to hide yet, but Daddy indulges her with lots of “where’s Zora?” as he “looks”.

Mow Mow No No

#107 Lawn Envy. The mowing season begins, and Zora is, once again, very unhappy to be left out of the action.

#106 Fourteen Roses for Fourteen Years. I have a sweet husband. :) On a funny note, on our Anniversary, when Zach brought the roses, the florist messed up and gave him 14 stems, but only 13 roses. He went back to retrieve another rose to complete the set.

Kindle Love

#103 Meet George. I will love him and squeeze him and pet him. And I will keep him warm like a mother hen, so he will never feel rejected or lack for love. aka: My Kindle Cover from StrangeDog arrived, after a month of stalking his site, several people sniping it out of my shopping cart, and hoping that when I finally did get one of the covers to go through that it would actually be one that I liked. lol. Worth the price, and the wait. Very nice craftsmanship. (and yes, I have watched entirely too much Bugs and Daffy in my life)

It was a chilly, rainy, gray Easter, but we had a good holiday. We just avoid church on holidays (change in routine isn’t really worth it for us most of the time), so the Easter Dress was replaced with a pair of her older brother’s pj’s (she couldn’t decide, so she has half of the “dinosaur” pjs, and half of the “car” pjs). The weather didn’t make for a picture perfect day anyway, so somehow the less than beautiful, but comfy, pjs seem totally appropriate.

We woke up to Easter baskets left on the mantle. Both of the baskets were the same, except Zora’s had some cute hair clips (she wanted to wear all of them to Grandma’s later) and a miniature bowling set for Zane.

Zora wastes no time getting to the good stuff.

Zane playing with the little bowling set. It is the perfect size to work with his marble run stuff.

The Easter Bunny hid the eggs last night, before the rain. When we got up we were hoping that we wouldn’t have to use umbrellas to find them. It was a little soggy, but it turned into a misty drizzle for a bit, so the kids headed out and gathered the eggs. Some of them had candy, and some had little miniature animals.

We ate at the farm, with Mom, Dad, my maternal Grandma, Uncle Steve, and a family friend, Corolla. It was, as usual, very fun and relaxed. She had baked ham, a tasty potato side dish, her 7 layer salad, and lots of veggies for nibbling.

This year Target was selling these neat little “Bunny House” kits. They are like the Gingerbread houses for Christmas, but with Spring decorations. I knew Zane liked things like that, but I still underestimated his enthusiasm. The dinner dishes weren’t even totally cleared yet and he pulled it out and started putting it together.

Zora and Shelby

Through most of the construction Zora was zooming around giving her new stuffed bunny a wild ride in the play shopping cart, but she did stop to make her mark on the construction.

The Bunny House complete in it’s candy glory.

Steve had the kids help him make some homemade ice cream. It made quite the impression because the next week, when Steve came up with Mom and Dad to join us for supper, when Zora heard Uncle Steve was coming, her first comment was to ask if we were making Ice Cream. lol.

Yummy Yummy Ice Cream!

Getting every last drop of the ice cream and asking for more.

And, the dreary ride home.

The Hunt!

#102 Easter Egg Hunt! A short, well timed break in the rain meant we didn’t have to use umbrellas to find the eggs.
