Happy Easter.....Part II

Hi again ya'll. I have some pictures to share with ya'll. Sometimes all the crappy times and drama filled days and nights and all the nervous tummies, tears, sore throats from talking all day, migraine headaches from the stress of life are all worth it..............it's times like these.........

and these...................................................................................................................and these too........................................................................................don't forget these............................................................................................

Mr. Mann's Easter basket. I don't give my kids candy because medically, it's impossible to find any they can eat and most of the time they don't like it anyways. I have always filled their baskets with little silly things. Trinkets ect., nothing big or expensive, just little and fun. We don't buy them alot of things through the year, they get most of their items (toys, play things ect.) on their birthdays and Christmas and stuff. It's not that I am cheap LOL of course I am, but it's hard when you have 2 and all the toys are soooo expensive.....and if we try and get the less expensive ones, they break :( anyways, I digress AGAIN LOL. I fill their baskets with crosswords for Mr. Mann, cutesy little pencils, pens, tablets, a deck of cards, koosh ball, jump ropes, jax, sidewalk chalk, ping pong paddles...you get the idea..they LOVE it. I fill plastic eggs with change and hide it around with the rest of the eggs and they just go crazy LOL it is soooooo funny watching them scramble LOL they have a blast!

Here is Miss Priss's, hers is a little more age appropriate.......................................

They each get a knitted item of their choice as well. Miss Priss picked the watermelon socks and Mr. mann wants a pair of midevil gauntlets to go with his one toy...............I agreed LOL like I would say no to making a knitted item LOL.

I did however, have HIGH hopes for having an Easter egg hunt in the yard with some friends and well....................looks like Ohio is true to form...........................screwy on the weather department LOL........................... It doesn't show that well in this photo but it was snowing like all get out! Made me so mad, I don't care HOW pretty it was LOL.

Well, that's it for the day....................Happy Easter every one and I hope you all get a chance to spend time with your friends and families and loved ones. Try and call a neighbor and see of they need anything for the day, maybe take a paper plate of ham and goodies to a friend or elderly neighbor that you know will be alone tomorrow......you would be surprised at how much that would mean to them. It's hard being alone on a holiday, it doesn't matter WHAT holiday or if your old or young, lonliness sucks! So please, walk across the street and extend a smile, hug or whatever you feel shows friendship....show the neighbors how awsome of a person that each and every one of you REALLY are!! Thanks everyone.

April is Autism Awareness Month...............please.................be aware!!!!
