Here comes Peter Cottontail

First off ~ Happy Easter! I hope you all had a good one.

Today was such a good day. We went to mom and dad's and had Easter dinner out there. One thing kinda sucked though - my sister, Tori and her family weren't able to be there. (this is the 1st Easter we've spent without her) Poor little Ethan has the chicken pox! So we had to keep him and Gracie apart. Hopefully they will be gone sometime next week. It's really starting to bother him....

Gracie had a wonderful day! She got to spend all day with Granny and Grandpa...something she loves to do. AND the Easter bunny came to her house. She's finally at the age that she is starting to get a real kick out of all the holidays. The only thing this time was trying to explain what exactly Easter is all about. She is so young I didn't really know how to...next year maybe? She got soooo much candy, and then Granny & Grandpa stuffed a bucket full of stuff. She didn't know what to do first!

I just don't know how to express how lucky I feel to have her. She can brighten my worst day. No matter what is going on, I have to make her happy....and then watching her makes me happy. If you have kids you know what I mean. If you don't, just wait and see.

Holidays always make me think of all the years passed and make me weepy. I can't help it. I miss what was. I remember when I was little and it was Easter morning after the bunny had come to see me, I'd always take my basket to Granny's house and show it all off. I know that seems so trivial but, oh my gosh, I'd love to be able to do that just one more time. I know we have to grow and things change. It's life, but these memories are so precious. I hope that all of you treasure each day as if it's your last. You never know what kind of impact it will have on someone. Years from now, our children will remember what we have done for them and wish for it once again....

Ok, I've rambled enough...I'm sure if you've gotten this far you're tired of reading...so I'll wish you all a good night and blessings til we talk again.
