I hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Easter holiday today! We spent our day enjoying the company of family, and the girls got to soak up some grandma time. Even though my parents live in town and my dad watches the girls once a week while I am at work, they rarely get to spend any extended time (more than 15 minutes or so) with their grandma K. Today they got to spend a whole 5 hours with her, and I think they really liked it. In fact, they were a bit a confused as to who she was. . . she kind of looks like mommy. . .and she kind of sounds like mommy. . .but she doesn't smell like mommy. . .hmmm. . .who is she?! LOL.
We started out the day in our PJ's and Easter hats that Deb from Aunt Denise's church made for the girls. LOVE THEM!! She has made hats for the girls for every major holiday so far and they are totally adorable!
We never did get the girls into any Easter specific dresses because, well, we weren't going anywhere and we were eating (which at this point means the girls too are eating) and I didn't want to worry about getting sweet potatoes or ham or anything smeared on beautiful dresses! So, we ended up in little skirt outfits with flower headbands on after we finished our lunch.

That just about sums up our day! Oh wait! Si and I had our first ballroom dancing lesson tonight - we learned the first couple of positions/moves to the waltz. We were both a little nervous at first, but it turned out to be a great time! We hope to have at least one lesson a week, and we hope to find the time after the girls are asleep to practice our new moves. FUN!!
Okay, and I'm going to go off on a quick tangent - consider yourself warned! I really wish that Easter was an observed holiday (tomorrow or Good Friday - either way!), and honestly it kind of bugs me that it isn't. I mean, all of the stores and most of the restaurants were closed today, so obviously as a nation we observe the holiday of Easter, so why on earth isn't it a national holiday too? We get a day off for President's Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but not Easter? What gives? Simply because it's a "religious" holiday means we can't recognize it as a national holiday?
Okay really, that's all for now! Happy Sunday!
