Gritty Easter

We had a very low key Easter Sunday. A very small egg hunt which was comprised of Keegan and I hiding two dozen candy filled eggs and then watching as Logan searched for them. Sometimes, during occasions like this, I get sad because of their age difference...years ago it didn't make that much difference...but here recently the difference is painfully evident. I suppose though that Keegan (who is 15) did enjoy hiding eggs a little tougher than I did and then playing the "'re getting warm...warmer...cold...colder...freezing!!..." game.

I decided to sport one of my new hats I was recently gifted. This one is from my MIL's sister and I really love it. Thanks Teresa! I've never worn this style before, but it's really cute. I've been shopping and looking for hats and scarves for when I lose my hair....but I've always loved wearing hats and scarves anyway.

I'm still playing around on Picnik before they officially close on the 19th and this action is called 'gritty'. They have the premium actions available right now (for free) so it's fun to play around.
I am so looking forward to the arrival of my sister later's going to be a great week!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter and happy Easter Monday!


  1. Looks like you had a lovely day! The hat is adorable!

  2. The hat is so cute! My oldest is 10 years older than my other 3 but I have always loved the age difference. I think my kids look up to her almost as another Mother--yet still cool like a sister.

  3. Hi Michelle! I stop by every now and then... I read back thru a few posts (about the cancer). So sorry that you have to go thru this! I'll keep you in my prayers! It sounds like you had a nice visit with your sister: sisters are the best!
    Take care! :c )

  4. Hi Michelle: Sounds like you had a good Easter with the boys. Your little hat is most adorable and you look most adorable with it on..Happy Monday..Judy

  5. Michelle, I love your hat! My husband and his brother are about that far apart in age and they are very close! It's a special relationship and I just know it will be for your boys too!! :) Have you tried using Picasa for your photo editing? I downloaded Picasa3 when I first started blogging, I'm still new to all of this but I love it. I never uploaded my photo's to picnic through Picasa because I found Picasa to be so much easier. I just noticed the other day that they had an update and some of the things you can do on Picnic you can now do on Picasa now. Have a great time with your sister! ~ Jamie

  6. There is a new site, just like Picnik called PicMonkey and it has all the same actions and then some! It was developed by some of the old editors of Picnik! You should check it out. :)

  7. Dearest Michelle, I'm so glad you were able to enjoy Easter with your family. I have been praying for you every night...God just keeps bringing you to mind...along with Vicky, who is also facing cancer. I pray that you are comforted knowing that so many out there are praying for you, dear!
