Catching up and Easter Blessings





Good Morning Company Girls!  I missed you last week but I was having a good time in Virginia visiting with relatives and most especially my sweet 88 year old Aunt.  She is my Mom's only surviving sibling. And, might I add, she is the Mother of four sons! ~grin~



  I spent Saturday with one of my cousins and we both enjoy doing "silly things."  We had fun trying on hats in some of the shops we visited.


Am I serious or what?
I'm pretty sure that the shop personnel and those in the shop thought we were crazy.  But, that's okay, we had a good time and I got some cute pictures. ~smile~


I also enjoyed spending time with some other cousins on Sunday afternoon.  I really wish that we were not separated by so many miles and could enjoy each others' company more often.  

I headed home Monday with a heart full of wonderful memories from my birthplace.


It has been "all hands on deck" since returning home.  Even though Hubby stayed behind and he always does an excellent job keeping the house in order, there are just some things that only we women can do.  Right???  One of those things is going through the piles of mail.  Mercy me, I do believe we get more mail than "the law allows."  Most of it goes in the trash, but the sorting out process does take some time.  


Giving CiCi sugars
Since our SIL has already moved to Dodge City to begin his job there, we have stepped up to the plate to assist our daughter with Clancy. She has to be at school at 7:00 each morning and his sitter does not come until 8:15.  So, Bridget drops Clancy off at our house each morning at 6:45 and we keep him until then.  If things are not in high gear by 6:45 they certainly are shortly after he arrives.  He is such a happy little guy and I don't think his energy is ever lacking.  They have just a short 8 days left here and then they will head out to join SIL in Dodge City.  We have already decided that we will not use the words, "good bye" but rather "see you later."  That sounds so much more soothing.  


Daughter, DIL and I will take the kiddos around to a 
 neighborhood egg hunt this afternoon.  Clancy is definitely into the whole "finding eggs" this year but I imagine our little Princess will need some assistance but that is not a problem. We will then
come back here and enjoy dinner together.  It will be our family celebration and I will be making my "famous" homemade pizza.  I guess that doesn't sound like much of a Easter celebration meal, but let me assure you, my kids LOVE my homemade pizza and are thrilled to have it anytime.  I'll make a great salad to go along and we'll "call it good." Oh, and homemade pound cake with fresh strawberries will be the dessert. 


I hope each of you will have a wonderful Easter weekend as we celebrate our Risen Lord! Yes, the cross made the difference for me.
