Dyeing easter eggs – check out Neeners “participating”
Egg hunt at America’s Best Flowers. It was great because it was open egg hunt from 10-3, inside and they replenished the eggs continuously. Everyone got the same little bag of candy at the end, so there was no need for competition. Morella has a blast! Tim was skeptical at first, but then I reminded him that she two. Definitely a repeat for next year.
My wonderful friend Sigrid. She threw a birthday party for her bulldog Zilla. Morella third official doggy birthday party and Athena’s first. Sadly, none of the dog and kid shots were that great. I had only so much room left on my camera and I wasn’t as free with taking a billion photos to get some good shots as I normally am.
Morella takes a moment to dig into some Easter Loot. Note that she and Athena are wearing the same “dress.” I quote that, because after washing it once they became tunics. The barrettes in her hair came from her Easter basket and she declared them “princess hair thingies.”
Athena is digging in her loot with a seriousness I can’t help but to laugh at.
Cousins and one cousin by marriage…are they cousins in that regard? Hm. Maybe not. But they are going to see each other at least once a year…so that has to count for something. It was so much fun to have a roving band of kids. I can only imagine what it is going to be like in a few years at Uncle Mark’s. (Uncle Mark is Morella’s favorite Uncle … for the moment).
If you answer that door, you are in for a bucket of cute!
Athena, her cousin Eden and me. Eden and Athena are about 4 months apart.
