This Moment . . .

{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Celebrating the Great Outdoors Once Again . . .




Girlfriends holding hands on a beautiful day!!!


The sun finally returned this weekend after a week long disappearance.  The temperatures teetered on being warm and we were actually able to keep the windows open for more than an hour at a time.  Hurray!!  On Sunday Megan and I spent the afternoon at a local street fair with some friends.  It was so nice to be outside in the sun.  Before long, I'll be doing my best to avoid it but, for now, I'm loving it.  The three amigas above were loving it too!!! 



Happy hair!!  : )



A vendor was selling these wonderful hats.  We had to stop and try them on, of course. 


I couldn't resist!!!  It was my one and only purchase of the afternoon and I can't wait to wear it!!!



Everybody needs a little Gummi Bear poop!!!!  : )



Every girl has to have a little bling!!!

Today it's back to cloudy skies and April showers.  I'm counting the days until we see the May flowers!!!  : )


Many blessings for a very happy Tuesday ~ Wendy

A Few Belated Easter Photos . . .






In the blink of an eye, it's four days after Easter and I'm just getting the chance to post some photos.  It's been a busy week with the kids off from school, friends coming and going, family here for Easter dinner and the continual work of getting the house ready for sale.  It was nice to sit down for a few minutes and watch the kids color their eggs.  Jakhai was here with us for Easter break again this year.  We didn't get to see him during mid-winter recess because Brendan was in Mexico with one of his friends so we hadn't seen him since Christmas.  Way too long!!!  : (


Oh those smiles!!!!!!!!

Oh that face!!!!!!!  : )


On Easter Sunday, family came for a roast pork dinner with all the fixin's.  It's one of my favorite meals to make and definitely one of my favorite meals to eat!!  It was a laid back kind of day.  Just the way I like it.

My brother in law, Thomas, looking very dapper in his suspenders.  He was home from his group home for the weekend. 


My mother started the tradition of  making a bunny cake many years ago and has always decorated it with the grandchildren.  Megan was more than happy to help out again this year!! 



Reading a story with her Pap.

The finished product!!!!!  And it was as yummy as it looks!!!!!!

I hope you all had a very happy and blessed Easter.  It's back to somewhat of a regular routine today.  Brendan is back in school.  Megan doesn't start again until Monday so she's at gymnastics camp today.  So hard to believe how quickly she's growing.  In another few weeks she'll be five and in September she starts kindergarten.  In the blink of an eye . . .


Many blessings for a very happy Thursday ~ Wendy

Easter Goodies at Jones' Farm . . .

Spring has arrived at Jones' Farm along with lots of wonderful Easter goodies.  I wanted to share some of them so you can see why we love visiting there so much!!




I fell in love with these adorable little chicks and ended up bringing two of them home with me.

Some hand-crocheted eggs and chicks.

Not for Easter but I fell in love with the hippo in the middle!!!







I really loved this faux jellybean and chocolate  bunny garland.


 And these don't really have anything to do with Easter but I thought they were great!!!



We had a brilliantly gorgeous day here in New York today!!!  I drove into the city to pick up Jakhai and he'll be staying with us thru next week.  The windows are open and there's a nice breeze coming thru without it being too cold.  There's lots going on at the house.  Hammering and sawing, packing and soon to be painting.  I feel the winds of change in the air and I'm feeling a little excited about it.  We hope to have the house listed some time in May.  My cousin (also our realtor) has given us our final TO DO list and it's a long one but we're up for the challenge for sure!!!  : )


Many blessings for a beautiful day ~ Wendy
