Easter 2008.....The "Journey"

We had a very nice and HECTIC (as usual) easter this year! Emma was surprised to see that the Easter bunny filled her basket with all kinds of goodies, her favorite being her new Max and Ruby can tell from the pic she was very excited about that! We rushed around getting ready for church where we met quite a bit of my family. Then went to my Aunt's house for some yummy food and ANOTHER egg hunt for the girls. Later, I packed up my crew and we headed to Clint's parents where we ate AGAIN and Emma and Grant got more easter goodies! was like Christmas all over again! LOL We all crashed that night and I don't think anyone made a peep until after 8 the next morning!

Easter Fun!!!

Emma was so excited for Easter to get here....this is the first year we have dyed eggs and she was beside herself!! EVERY color was "Beautiful mommy" and the eggs were "Amazin' mommy"!! LOL It was really cute! She cried b/c she wanted to take one to bed with her that night and we FINALLY convinced her to take a plastic one instead! We also went to an egg hunt at some of my families house and had a great time. Emma was running as fast as she could to collect as many eggs as possible....she even got the DORA EGG!!! When I was tucking her in that night, she took a deep breathe and said " was a great day!" I thought so too....

"Brothers & Sisters are as close as hands and feet"

"Brother and Sister
together as friends
ready to face
whatever life sends.
Joy and Laughter
or tears and strife
holding hands tightly
as we dance through life"


I just had to do this post because eventhough Grant is only a baby and Emma is 3, I already see this awesome bond forming!!! They just look at eachother and their faces light up. Emma has been such a great big sister and is already becoming quite protective of Grant....we went to the bank today, and a lady she had never met before came up and started talking to him...she then put both hands on her hips and said "HEY" with this frown on her face!! LOL I told her it was fine and she wanted to meet baby brother too and Emma said "Oh, okay." I feel so blessed to have these 2 healthy children and look forward to watching them grow up together! I know how it is to have a "baby brother" and I thank God for Brian everyday!!! We have always had this unbreakable bond and although we are at different stages in our lives and don't talk as much as we used to, he still holds a special place in my heart! I pray that Emma and Grant will have the same relationship we did!!
