Last days of March

Here we are in the last days of March already! We celebrated four birthdays this month. Our ladybug Sophia turned 7 and littlest Evangeline turned 2. My sister, Hannah, made us two more gorgeous cakes for our parties.

Our niece/cousin Selina turned 18 (She's graduating this year! Eee!) and my brother had his 33rd.

This weekend is full of softball and family. Easter Sunday will be non-stop from morning until night. I am still putting finishing touches on baskets and making clues for an old-fashioned egg hunt like my Mom and Dad made for us when we were kids. I am wrapping up a few prizes for the final clue (little things like books and sidewalk chalk). I have some baking to do tomorrow, also. I like to put some homemade goodies in their baskets so it is not completely full of store-bought candy.

Easter afternoon is another egg hunt at Grandma's. She recently sold her home to Mike's brother and new wife. It will be strange going there and not equating it as "Grandma's house" anymore. The girls are a bit apprehensive about it. Life is always changing, though. Even though I am thrilled that my brother-in-law and his wife have a new home, it seems a bit bittersweet for my mother-in-law. However, if she is happy we can not complain. Life will move on accordingly.

Easter evening is spent with my family! They will be serving a ham dinner with all the trimmings.

I am looking forward to warmer days and cool breezy nights, planting seeds, airing out the house with open windows and a much needed deep cleaning. I am planning on getting back to healthier eating, exercising, and soaking in sunlight for all its vitamin D goodness. I hope April brings me all that and more.

                            Enjoy your weekend with family and friends! Happy Easter!
