Just a few last pictures from Easter weekend and then I'll be on to other subjects. I had to get a picture of my brother Thom, he came home from UMKC and graciously gave up his bed for Jace and me to sleep in - thanks, Thom! Here he is on the sofa, doing some deep reading while the rest of us were all being silly.
We snapped a pic of the three sisters (minus Tara, who headed back home on Saturday) on Easter Sunday, and I was dismayed to see I was the SHORTEST! Am I shrinking? (And I'm also the heaviest, but we don't need to go there.) In all fairness, Susan and Ann both had heels on, and I was wearing flats. So I'm not THAT much shorter than them.
The next time I post a pic of Annie and Matt, it will be at their wedding in May, out in TN. They are getting married at a gorgeous resort near Gatlinburg, and we will all be joining them for the festivities. My b-in-law Ron kept cracking jokes about Matt's pre-wedding bliss, as opposed to after he gets married... Susan raked him over the coals for those comments!
And, finally, the Easter pics with Grandpa and the grandkids were fairly unsuccessful, but very funny!
Along with a fairly modest amount of candy, the Easter Bunny brought Jace $5.00 from Grandpa and Mimi, and $10 Target gift card from me. This new found wealth is burning a hole in his pocket, so we will be heading to Target this evening after he finishes his chores.
In other news, I am going with Dave and his daughter Paige to Kansas City on Friday, for Paige's final look at William Jewell. She was offered a substantial scholarship to WJ, and is very excited. One of the best things is that she will have the opportunity to study abroad in England for a year during her undergrad. Then Dave and I are going to Eureka Springs this weekend for a little getaway, complete with a massage and facial for me on Saturday. And, Dave said he may get a massage as well. Mr. Metrosexual (not!) has never had one, and I think he will really enjoy it.
It will be a nice time for us just to relax and continue rebuilding our relationship. I've been so happy with the changes in things, and that both of us know this is what we want and are committed giving it 100%. In the meantime, I have a list of things to get done today and tomorrow, at work and at home. One of the thing is a pedicure- I'm so ready for spring, and hope that this weekend will be nice enough for sandals, so gotta make sure my feet are looking pretty!
