Happy Easter!

Someone in the neighborhood was having an Easter feast with several cars’ worth of attendees. Probably all vaccinated, right?

Still, it left me with a sense of, oh, if only.

I texted Happy Easter to my kids. In response we got a photo of one exhausted toddler sound asleep mid-dinner in his high chair and some FaceTime with his 18-month-old cousin who, having discovered this wondrous indentation right there in the center of her, had to show us her discovery of having a belly button. As every not quite entirely verbal yet baby that ever was has done for all of time. While her big brother made sure she had enough jelly beans. This was clearly Jelly Beans Day, to her amazement, holding some out in our direction. She opened and got help closing the little plastic egg halves again and again.

The St. Bernard, as always, refused to hear her name coming out of a screen because she knew that’s just not real. She got to her feet and walked away.

Not as good as being there, but at least you get to peek in! I can just picture those kids, so cute.

Happy Easter a day late.

Meant to send that yesterday but life intervened. Church, dead hot water heater, news of a new grand baby coming in September ( the big guy’s daughter). You know – just the regular stuff.

Belly buttons are really a thing of wonder! Glad you got to “see” your family, too…we are starting remote school after our spring break and it is a struggle today…
