I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! I like to celebrate this Easter Week and let all the fun memories sink in. It was a busy weekend, with church activities and family fun. I so enjoyed it all and feel very blessed. These are some beautiful egg wraps from the Russian store that my  SIL Chris picked up. He thought I would really enjoy the ones with the churches. I think they are all just so pretty.

Now that we have Ava and Otto in our lives, the holidays are just so much more fun! We waited a very long time for these grandchildren, but it sure was worth the wait! These little monkeys have stolen our hearts.

We managed to get in the egg hunt before the hail, thunder and lightening appeared. Otto had no problem figuring it all out! So fun to watch the kids.

Chris always makes sure we have fun food to celebrate the holidays. The bunny cake was so cute and the candies are very special chocolate eggs he brought home from his trip to New Orleans.

More treats from New Orleans...special macaroon cookies and a pecan egg. SOOOO yummy!

Otto was ready for that cake!

My daughter Angie is such a good mom. She works and still manages to do it all! I know how hard that is Ang...good job!

We went to a seafood restaurant for an early dinner. In between rain showers, we were able to get a few more pictures of the kids.

So serious and so grown up! Our little man will be two in July! Hard to believe.

We missed our Eric and Gina, but had a nice Easter with our family that is here. We Skyped the kids after dinner and that was fun and helped the mama who was missing her other kids. Enjoy your week and let it all soak in. Off to babysit...busy week. Grandma K is in Colorado, so Jimmy and Linda are babysitting all week! Hard on the old folks, but a joy.

I spent yesterday with my dad...Happy Birthday Dad! He turns 86 today. Love ya dad.

They certainly are beautiful children and I am sure such a pleasure. Being a Granny is wonderful I treasure every moment spent with my little ones. Enjoy the week.
