I need some blojo

Blogjo. Don't be dirty. Get your mind out of the gutter. I just need some mojo for my blog...so I guess we can call it blojo? I used to blog all the time and now...not so much. Perhaps the newest addition to our family has something to do with it...perhaps it's kind of lost it's appeal...who knows. I just need some blojo to help me get back on the blog track. (well come to think of it...I need some 'jo' for lots of things I need to get back on track with...dojo (for my diet), exjo (for exercising), slojo (sleep), relojo (relaxing)...okay I'll stop.)

Easter came and went. It was a great time! One of the better holidays we have had here. We always have great holidays at our house with family and friends - but this one was so nice.

The day before Easter we made our way down to the community park for the annual Easter Egg hunt. There were a billion people there. Literally. I counted. They did the egg hunt in groups by age. Emily's group had 1500 eggs to find. They weren't hard to find as they just throw them out. Out of the 1500...our sweetheart got 5. BUT...SHE got 5. We didn't get her 5. The other kids had TONS of eggs in their baskets in which their parents got for them. I was proud of her 5 little eggs and she was too! Erik and Emily even made the newspaper - just a picture of them during the hunt. It's adorable!

This is her after the hunt...


Easter morning was great. Emily woke up to find her Easter basket filled with a bunch of stuff. She was excited - but not as excited as she was to actually see the eggs the Easter Bunny left in the backyard. :) She LOVED finding them. I didn't get "pictures" - just video. However, our video camera will take a picture if someone smiles so it did capture this one:



After all the excitement of the egg hunt - it was time to get dressed...for mommy. Yes, I am all about the dresses, the cuteness and the pictures. My husband could care less and so could the kids - but I LOVE it and just had to have my fix. I don't ask for much - it's just important to me to dress up and get pictures at holidays and such.







After our delicious-to-die-for brunch...Emily wanted to have a tea party. Grandma Shell was so excited that she brought stuff just for the tea party. She brought hats and cookies and apple juice. Emily never had a better tea party in her life!

{sorry it's dark - again...video camera snapshot}

Everyone ended up getting in on the tea party. I wore a tiara but there are no pics of me...darn it! (That is a sarcastic darnit by the way)

Grandma Shell...


Grandma Alma...

And my absolute favorite picture...my dad (and if you know my dad - this isn't his cup of tea! HA! Okay...pun intended)


Great day! Great Fun! Lots of love, laughter and memories! And most importantly...champagne! :)
