It's April....and it should be filled with thunderstorms, growing plants, warmer winds, kite flying, sidewalk chalk, track meets and other signs of spring. But what do we have? SNOW! AAAAAGH! Although it was only a few inches...it really ticked me off! The 30-some-degree temps better high-tail it outta here quickly because I NEED SPRING!!!
Easter is this weekend and I'd really like it if Lauren could wear her short-sleeved Easter dress without a turtle neck underneath! And how cute will Grant look in his matching duds? Bailey found a really cute outfit too...but I can't find a picture of it online.
This weekend my Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt & Uncle are visiting. And on Thursday we are going to pick up our new puppy! SO......that means this week I'm trying to clean, clean, clean! I still have to shop for groceries, Easter basket goodies and figure out what I am going to wear Easter Sunday. I also have to figure out what side dishes to serve up with our ham. I'm thinking THIS will be one of them. Mmmm... can't go wrong w/Paula Deen, right?
On a completely separate note...it looks like we have a drainage problem in our back yard. We had the grading/sod guy out tonight to look at it and he's going to "make it right," but I'm not sure what he can do...we'll see. In any case, I think we are going to be removing sod and dealing with mud before the problem is solved. And I had such high hopes for PLANTING and PLAYING out there this spring/summer! Oh well...baby steps, right?
Have a great Holy Week! Hope you remember what it's all REALLY about while you are coloring eggs and eating chocolate bunnies. =-)
