Happy Easter, my friends! 

Thankfully, Easter is a season, not just a day, because our day was a whirlwind.   Not in a frenzied, bad way, but in a five-sugared-up-kids way.  

My quest for a decent picture of all the children together was once again denied, but I am becoming more resigned to that.   Someone is always looking the other way, smiling like a deranged maniac, or sulking because they didn't get to sit next to the baby . . .  such is life.

But I did get to Mass with my most favorite people, some lovely weather, some good family visiting, a delicious meal, and a husband who cleaned up all the dishes. 
Hopefully, your Easter Sunday was just as wonderful (although maybe slightly less hyperglycemic?). 


From left to right:
Bun, disgruntled about the lack of candy at church; Fiver, smiling like a loon;
Sally, looking in the opposite direction when I said "look at the camera!";
Mopsy in a partial headlock; and Francie trying to keep Mopsy in one place.

My boys

Bun deciding to forgo the post Mass photo ops

Sally finally looking in the right direction


Mopsy and me (looking rather like an Easter egg myself --  round and brightly colored!)


  1. Happy Easter, dear Aimee! Yes, you have a whole season to take pictures (and enjoy highly sugared kids -- the best kind!).

  2. PRECIOUS...and I am with you on the Easter pics, I have just about given up~and I only have four!

    You look beautiful, hope this week brings a little reprieve (and a few stolen treats from Easter baskets)!


  3. Okay, all of your children are adorable, but I just want to eat Bun up. Obviously, you named him appropriately.

    Hope these last days go quickly and you are getting some sleep.

  4. Such cuties! And I decided that you look like Hallie Lord from Betty Beguiles! Seriously, it's weird :)

  5. Handsome and beautiful. :)

  6. Love the pictures! I think the one I like best is the one you like least! It shows your family how they are right this very minute. You can get a picture of all of them looking at the camera when they are older! (Of course then you have the problem of your grand kids looking the other way, or deranged, or in a head lock!)

  7. Those are GREAT pictures! I love the one of the 2 boys. As to "smiling like a loon" I think that is just the way 8 or 9 year old boys roll.

  8. Precious!! Happy Easter :)


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
