A simple place to capture the moments of my crazy life

Easter Weekend 2011

on April 25, 2011

Let’s see it’s been 3 days since my last post … so what has happened since Good Friday?? Saturday morning we all headed off to soccer practice with Peter and Danielle, on the road at 9am. Armed with books, movies, toys and happy girls. The sun was out in full force, thus improving everyone’s overall mood. Our plan was to go to practice and then head to Wal-Mart for some last-minute shopping, for Easter shoes for Mya and Danielle. Practice was from 10-11:30, the little girls and I dropped Peter and Danielle off, went to Timmy’s to get Mommy another coffee and the girls a Fruit Smoothie to share 🙂 I was interested in watching soccer, however, the little ladies did not have the patience to sit inside and watch practice, so we went back outside to the van and they watched Megamind in the van, with the doors open letting the sunshine warm their tiny little souls and the wind whip through their curls. This gave me an hour and a half to work on perfecting my Scrabble game on my phone along with many rounds of Angry Birds!! LOL!!!

After practice we were off to Wal-Mart, HA HA HA, this was a short-lived visit, seeing as when we arrived we realized that we had left the bank card at home …. DOH!!! Thankfully we didn’t have the girls out of the van before we realized it, so we carried on home, with some mildly unhappy little girls. Peter, Keisha and Olivia stayed home after lunch, and just Mya, Danielle and I ventured out to the Mall for shoes shopping. Now for any of you that know me well, we know that I HATE SHOPPING!!! Like truly hate it, especially, on a long weekend, boooooooooo, but we made it through!!! Everyone got what they needed and I managed to get out alive!!

As I had hoped the weather on Saturday co-operated and we were able to take the girls to the drive in to see HOP!! 🙂 It was a great movie – everyone enjoyed it and we didn’t freeze to death. Which is always an added bonus!

1st Trip to the Mustang 2011

Sunday morning was a typical chaotic Easter morning for us, the girls were excited to find their baskets and eggs. Egg hunting was interesting this year … because the darling dogs also got in on the action …. eating 3 eggs prior to the hunt on us … ugh … actually Porkee brought 2 eggs to bed with him through out of the night delivering them to Peter and I, he dropped on directly into my hand at about 4am!! One thing for certain, life in our house is never dull. HA HA HA!! Once the girls consumed the required amount of chocolate, it was time to shower and get ready for Mass. After Mass, it was off to Nana’s house (my grandmother, the girls great-grandmother), for a quaint little potluck luncheon of 37 people EEKS!!! Lunch was wonderful with salads, homemade buns, ham all the trimmings. Then there was the traditional Easter Egg hunt in the front yard, which somehow I missed getting any pictures of, but the highlight of every Easter gathering is the SMASHING of the BUNNIES!!! My cousin Jeff, who honestly is a kid trapped in a man’s body, lol, purchases 1 or 2 large hollow Rheo Thompson’s bunnies, for all the cousins to SMASH and take home pieces of. The table is covered in plastic and all the kids are given a wooden spoon and away they go!! 🙂 So much fun!!

After Nan’s we had an afternoon of cards and coffee with Andy and Donna … followed by Erie Drive In for dinner!! 🙂 It was a great weekend!! Now back to reality!!
