Easter weekend

Our first Easter egg hunt was a blast. Kylie quickly picked up on the idea of placing the eggs into her basket with just one lesson from her Daddy. She was on her own after that. We started off our morning with our good friends from Clermont and then we spent the afternoon with our cousins from Orlando. It was a fun filled day.

This past weekend was also met with happy emotions. I still remember the disapointing wait we endured for news of our referral last year. When we started the process the wait was holding steady at 6 months and then the wait got longer and longer. I didn't feel like celebrating the holidays. We finally got word in June after waiting 12 months. My heart goes out to those families who have now waited 17-18 months with no referral in sight! Only those who are currently going thru the waiting period can understand how difficult that is to endure. My thoughts and heartfelt understanding are with you. It doesn't mean much now, but once you receive the much awaited referral the wait will be a thing in the past. Hang in there!

Now for some pics:-)

Why is everyone looking at me?
Proof that Daddy 'O got into the egg hiding spirit this year. "Try to make it a little obvious for the little ones, Hon". Thanks.

Once Kylie got into it, she shook every single egg to hear if there was anything in it.

These are Kylie's cousins from Orlando. Notice she was too busy checking out the goods to pose for a pic. Notice also that she, yes she placed the basket behind her. I'm almost certain that she was thinking mine, mine, mine her new favorite words along with no and more, more, more.

And finally...Mommy's favorite another scrunchy face:-)
