thanks Easter bunny!

for the miserable snotfilled, runny nose, achy back,watery eyes, scratchy throat, constant cough, and insane sinus headaches!!!

2 out of 3 of us woke up Sunday with it, and the little guy woke up to a snotcoverd face this morning!

but that didn't stop us from enjoying a rather brisk(but sunshiny) Easter celebration !





The bunny left a pile of carrots in our hallway... and then a messy trail of half eaten ones through the house leading to the prize!


Tatum and I suffered through a wonderful sermon on God's great love for us. My head was to
stuffed to sing( and not embarrass my self) and Tatum added her own comentary to the lesson with her 337 sneezes!!




We raced home, to get dinner started as I was hosting this year for my side of the family.




the table was set. the food mostly prepped.



my traditional lamb cake flopped(remember I have a cake biz???-actually it didn't come out of the pan very well this time... so glad it happened for family!), so we sliced it up and I made a trifle with fruit and pudding, etc. It was totally delish.. and pretty too . great idea honey!

my mom brought yummy ham and my favorite creamy corn/cheese dish.

I made several other things including some addicting garlic cheese biscuits.

all of this and I never even ate Easter dinner!! LOL

after things were served, and Tatum was fed... I curled up on the couch with a grand supply of kleenex!!



the bunny did leave eggs and Brigham had a blast running around picking them up! My brother .. aka Uncle Monkey brought him a very fitting


'monkey basket'.



and here is our sickly girl.. still trying to be happy.

I'll have to take some more pics later b/c she was wearing MY old dress!!
I hope you all had great celebrations.
I saw this and thought it was totally cool.
what great witnesses they are.

Awe so sorry your family was so sick for Easter. That's so not fun. BUT you sure did your part to still make it a wonderful day. Love those pics.

As for your camera question... my new zoom lens is a 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 canon lens. It has an image stabilizer which is very nice. Great for low light.

Have a great day.
