catching up

Forgive me for my blogging absence!  The days just fly by with good intentions of blogging but I just can't seem to make it happen lately.  What have I been up to?  Well, we have been blessed to have both sets of parents come to visit us the last few weeks - first for Spring Break and then for Easter.   Spending time with them is priceless, even more so since they live far from us.

Here is a photo from our Easter brunch . . .

We had a happy day together.  The day was nice enough that the boys were able to hunt for eggs outdoors.  My oldest has the job of hiding the eggs.  Since my boys are getting big he likes to give them a challenge (nothing is too high!)

My second oldest is shimmying (is that even a word?) along the edge to reach the egg above the vent (can you see it?)  There always seems to be a few eggs that can't be found.  Some bird will likely find it though!

During all of the fun and celebration we did have a few mishaps. 

First of all my oldest son got a case of very bad poison ivy.  Not just a little bit of a reaction but a VERY BAD one.  Most likely he got it retrieving a golf ball from the woods.  He's my golfer and sometimes those pesky little balls just don't go where they should.  Tsk, tsk, tsk . . .

Thankfully we found a product that works (a big thank you to the man at the pharmacy counter who recommended this.  He had a lot of credibility sine he said he gets poison ivy like 5x a year! ) 

It really worked to stop the oozing and begin the process of healing.  Just a tip if you or someone you know gets a bad case.  Thank God for modern medicine!

About that time our 3rd oldest son who plays baseball took a ball right about the eye. 

Unsure of whether he had a concussion my husband took him to the ER.  Thankfully, no broken bones and no bruising on the skin.  He's still taking pain medication days later but we are trusting all will be well with him. 
I hope you had a joyous Easter celebration.

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all."  Psalm 34:19

Many blessings to you my friends!

Hi Kathy!! :)
How is your son with the baseball injury? I pray all is well with him. I also pray the poison ivy is all dried up with your other sweet boy. Oh goodness! When it rains it pours.
When I looked at your sweet picture of your family around the table it reminded me of the Norman Rockwell picture of the family around the table eating at Thanksgiving, I believe. I love it!
Have a lovely weekend dear!
Hugs, Shann
