Fancy Nancy with Mimi


Mimi did it AGAIN!
complete with new outfits, nails painted, and even a trip to the salon to have their hair curled....


Cousins Emme and Abby
off to the Fancy Nancy Party
put together to benefit cancer research in honor of Lottie Mae
a sweet little relative of the girls who is surviving cancer one year at a time 


Bless Mimi's heart, it is dear to her, having lost her sister to cancer.
Mimi is a surviver too,
of a different kind, 
but important
and she is showing the girls how important family is...


and enjoying all the perks of grand-daughters too!


Thanks Mimi!

Of course, they were up before the crack of dawn
and finished with rummaging through their baskets and the official "hunt" in minutes.


But, the happiness and hilarity was still ever-present.



We take it pretty day on the candy and sweets, mainly because we know what is coming in a few hours at the grandparents, but they don't seem to mind.

Easter Traditions


A little late in posting, but we kept up with Easter Traditions by painting our yearly wooden egg. I take the kids out and we get a 99 cent wooden egg and they get to pick three paint colors to create their easter egg for the year. This is our third year to do it, and we are starting to compile a nice little set of eggs for a basket decoration on the coffee table.

I love to see their individuality come out in their paint choice and final creation.


We dyed eggs this year using an idea we got from interest. kool-aid. 


My conclusion....the smell of vinegar and watching those little tablets disappear is just too cool to give up as a memory for my cherubs. I like taking any chance I can to link my childhood to theirs, with tradition and memories. So, next year, and for years to come, the PAAS vinegar it will be.


It was a great lead up to Easter this year, indeed.
