Happy Easter and Family Catch up...

I would firstly like to thank everyone for the sweet Bday wishes and welcome all my new followers this week... Did not have time to put together the post I had planned but I do have some photos highlights from this week to share...

This is the first bloom on the gardenia shrub that my in-laws gifted back to us this fall...My husband purchased it as a small potted planted a number of years back for his mom on Mothers day...It had grown so large that wintering it at their mountain home is just to hard...Now it is in it's forever home beside our house...

The next bud just waiting to open....


This little Play Dough bunny "cake" was my birthday gift made by the sweet little hands of Lil Sara all by herself.

Big Sissy is home for spring break...now that is the best Bday/Easter Present EVER...

It really has been a week of ups and downs here with sick ones in the house to take care of and worry about...Last week lil Sara came down with strep throat, just as she was getting over it, daddy came home from work early... "A virus" the Dr said...By mid Wednesday morning (yes my Bday) Lil Sara was running a fever as well...Tested and confirmed (despite having her shots) with Influenza A...yup Swine Flu...The only grace is that once the fever breaks she was no longer contagious and her fever broke in time for her sister to come home for spring break...

Having said that we are not out of the woods yet, since Lil Sara has a history of bad Asthma and was born premmie her lungs are not the strongest...Please keep her in your prayers over the next few weeks.

Blessings and Happy Easter Kelsie
