Easter is always such a great time in my life. It means summer is coming and the warm weather is near. This year we had a little babe to celebrate the Joy with. T and I got to be the “easter bunny” and even though archer wasn’t sure what was going on, he will love his new things. In his Easter basket, he had a Easter movie, Easter book (where T and I will write a special message for him to read when he’s older), some bubbles, some new freshly picked moccasins, some little toys, and 2 pairs of Purl Lamb shorties for summer. We put him to bed in his bunny Jammies and he slept like an angel last night.
We spent yesterday in Las Vegas enjoying the heat, doing some shopping, and eating at our favorite place “Cheesecake Factory.” We had a fun little outing as a family of 3. Today we are heading to beaver to spend time with our families and to visit my grandma.
Unfortunately, my grandpa passed away on Friday.. He was 85 years old and one of the best men I have ever known. He spent countless hours telling us all about our heritage, playing his accordion, and talking about history. Although we all miss him dearly, we know he will be smiling, laughing and going on walks with our angel niece, Stella..
Life sometimes doesn’t give you the best news & the best circumstances to work with. But if you keep your faith & head held high life can be a miraculous thing. I wish people didn’t grow old, I wish there was no such thing as “death.” But rather we all want to face it or not, we are going to die one day. Instead of dragging life on, being miserable, have a happy outcome. Smile when you want, laugh countless times a day, and don’t ever regret anything because life is too short for everyone.
When I look at this little face, I knew I must have done something right because who couldn’t love him. We love our Archer babe & I’m so glad my grandpa got a chance to meet him.
There’s some thought for the day, I’m off to enjoy some much needed family time. Hope everyone has a great Easter!! Hug the ones you love a little bit tighter, for one day they’ll be gone.
