I was wrong

Monday, March 24, 2008
It doesn't happen often (LOL) but I was wrong on two counts. First, I thought today was the one year anniversary of when Dave and Will met Kate. Heather, whose family was in our travel group, kindly reminded me that the date was actually the 26th. In the US, it was the 25th and that is where I was at the time. So, you can understand my confusion. Anyway, I will post about that special anniversary tomorrow. In our family, we plan to celebrate Forever Family Day on April the 4th because that is the day Kate came home and was with our whole family for the first time. We are lucky to have so many extra days to reminisce and celebrate.

The other thing I was wrong about was that I said I would post last night. I am sorry if you checked back. Not that I think you were sitting at your computer waiting (like I am doing for my friend's daughter
Lily!) but still--- I said I would do it and I did not. Bad blogger. Between our lovely dinner with friends, cleaning silver, crystal and china (still not all done and put away), putting 3 peanuts to bed and catching up with her on the phone....I just could not get to it.

We had a very nice Easter. We went to the 8 am Mass so there was no time for photos before church. In fact, I never got a chance on Easter Day to get all of the peanuts lined up for a picture. After Mass, we cooked (me and Dave) and relaxed (the kids) around the house. Kate loved playing outside with the sidewalk chalk that the Easter Bunny brought her (in the slideshow). In the afternoon, two families that we are friends with came over for an egg hunt and Easter dinner. Harry said a beautiful blessing. We had a great day. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.... And then there is a long slideshow below.

I LOVE this picture. There is a lot of meaning behind it. My friend, Lauren is holding her daughter, Eveley's hand and the charm on her bracelet says Robbie, who is her beautiful son in heaven. This picture was completley spontaneous but seems so symbolic especially on Easter.

Kate with Easter Paper

This is the day before Easter. Kate got into the Easter basket paper and had a ball "playing" (spreading it over every inch of the kitchen) with it.

Paper, Mom?

  14. Well...your Easter pictures were definitely worth the wait. You set a beautiful table...really the stuff Easter dreams are made of. It reminded me of the Easter dinners my mom used to make. Setting a beautiful table is still one fo her favorite things to do. Just lovely.

    It sounds like you had a wonderful day filled with good food and good friends...it just doesn't get any better.

    I am glad you are all feeling better!

  25. Happy (belated) Easter. Your pictures, as ALWAYS, are stunning! The photo of Eveley's hand with the bracelet is amazing - especially with the story behind it! Wow!
    I also prefer the unedited photo - more natural. All are truly stunning though!
    Did you make the chocolate bunnies or buy them? They look great!

  31. great pics! Love the eyelashes. Have you tired taking the close up and making it black and white? (The one where you tried to photo shop it)?

    And I LOVE the sentiment with your friend's charm bracelet and her baby in heaven. I so believe he was there with you all!!
