Easter ~ 2009

Good Monday morning! I hope everyone had a great Easter. We had a very nice one here in Cincinnati. It was sunny but a little chilly which isn't unusual for Easter in Cincinnati. My Dad took us all out for brunch at a local golf club and our family came back to our house for an Easter egg hunt and honeybaked turkey. A few members of our family were missing this year but all in all we had a wonderful day.

So I made this collage in Picnik(which took forever to upload)instead of putting a bunch of photos up. Starting at the top left and moving around the collage, the first photo is of two of my favorite guys, my sweetie and our son Jim, the second photo is my sister Gail and her son Andrew and of course the Easter bunny. Everytime that bunny came near Maddie or Sydney, they would both start to cry, so no photos of them with the bunny. LOL The third photo is of my Dad's table with my sister's in laws and the next photo is my niece Allison and Maddie. Going down the collage on the right is Papa giving Maddie pointers on Easter egg hunting(I kid you not, he really was giving her tips on what to do). LOL The next one is Maddie collecting the Easter eggs during the hunt. Maddie was nice enough to give Sydney an egg. And going around the collage on the bottom is Gommy(me) and Papa and Sydney, with Maddie and her Daddy in the background. And the next three are just a few more of the Easter egg hunt and the last photo is of Sydney all worn out from Easter! Okay, did you follow all of that? LOL

Anyway, hope you all had a wonderful Easter and have a great week! We are heading to Hilton Head later this week so I'll blog more about that later in the week. It's chilly and rainy("rainy days and mondays always get me down", that's a song for anyone who remembers it and it will now be in your head for the rest of the day) here today so it's a good day to catch up with lots of work around the house. Happy Monday!

Great photos and it looks like a fun time.

Have a wonderful time in Hilton Head. I hope you do get to bike. We love biking. We did 12 miles yesterday and another 10 today. (Yep, we have a gadget (forget what it's called) on our bikes so we know our distance.)

Hugs!
Kat
