GG had a little Easter celebration of her own planned in Ohio and they all colored eggs and then did an egg hunt!
Cadence finally got to meet her new cousin Celest. She calls her "E-Lest". She wasn't so sure about her at first because she was so little - not to mention her mommy was giving this new baby all kinds of attention and she didn't like it very much!
The baby was like 3 feet from my kids - they always find the most appropriate times to start wrestling around.
Jacqui and Uncle Bryan always find time to mess with each other too. Do you see the fear in his eyes?
Aunt Noel (or O-el as Cadence calls her), just shakes her head at all of them cause she knows it doesn't do any good to yell at them!
We took Cadence to the mall to see the Easter Bunny. She was doing really good and was really excited to see him until she saw the little boy in front of her have a melt down on his lap. She got scared and didn't want anything to do with him after that. Easter morning at my moms house. The Bunny ALWAYS goes a little overboard at her house.
We got to spend some time with Theresa and her kids, Jake and Trista, on Easter Sunday at Church and at her grandma's where we had another egg hunt.
Aunt April and Uncle Bill were going on a cruise the day after I got there so I got to see her for all of about 11 minutes. There was still plenty of time to make fun of her and my mom though.
Me and the kids eating Easter dinner. If you haven't noticed, I have this very stupid hair cut that makes me want to cringe each time I look in the mirror. I'm ready to shave it all off and start over!
Jamie, me and Theresa on Easter. I haven't seen Jamie since high school. She didn't have plans for the holiday so we had her over to our house!
We had dinner at Cadence's favorite restaurant "Applebee's" with all the Puzella's. Unfortunately no one would let me take their picture so all I have are Ryann and Anthony - my brother Bill's kids. That is okay though - look how cute they are!
Right before this I said "OOHH Ma - you look HOT" and she got all excited and said "Oh REALLY?" Then she realized we were making fun of her curlers!
Always good to see "mean" Uncle Shawn!! This is the same man that used to freeze the heads of Tammie's Barbie's, tie us grandkids together or handcuff us to the railing of the staircase. Of course we would run right up to him and swing the rope at him yelling "You can't get us!!!"
Leah, Jacqui, and Kyla. Leah is my first cousin and my daughter is older then she is!!!
I also only got to see Genie for about 11 seconds too. She is busy working as an RN these days. Oh the stories she has to tell about Detroit Receiving! You know Aunt DeeDee still worries about her "Tine's" and that night she brought three grocery bags worth of "dinner" for her.
Matt and Caders - these two have a little something in common it seems. When Matt was little he flushed a golf ball down the toilet when I lived in this house. On our trip 6 years later, Cadence flushed an entire plastic bag full of M&M's down this same toilet and Uncle Shawn had to come out and fix it again. Atleast this time he didn't have to take the entire toilet off!
Theresa, Bobbie and Me - this was the night before I left. Everything was packed except my pajama's - which explains why I look like a clown.
We actually got to see SNOW! The kids hadn't seen snow in two years. Matt was a gentlemen and cleared our cars off for us.
Megan was in a wedding the day we left. Doesn't see look pretty. Well, she changed into a dress but her hair looks good!
