Alone again.......

Wow, Easter came and it went, along with all of my company. Alone again... wasn't that a song?
Well our Easter was just so fun, 4 generations of Paquins in the house, it was a very special time.
The weather was on the cool side, however the sun came out on Saturday. My pumpkins were able to run off some steam and take part in the neighborhood egg hunt.

Alex got to show me his tree climbing skills, he was very proud, as you can see he is just beaming from ear to ear :)

I had tons of help in the kitchen, pint sized help that is! Alex helped me make our Easter Peep
angel cake and I learned something new. This kid LOVES Peeps! He ate 6 of them while we decorated the cake. I said Alex.... I didn't know you liked Peeps! He chirped, I mean said, oh Nana, they are my favorite! Before making the cake we dyed eggs, you may be able to see that by the dye spots all over his shirt. But believe you me his shirt looked great compared to Williams. William goes to dunk his 1st egg in a cup and knocks it over, all down the front of his once white now in the garbage can purple tye dyed shirt LOL! Remind me to make these boys some head to toe aprons.

We had brunch instead of dinner on Easter. The kids had to drive back to Oklahoma and Jon back to KU. Boy it was yummy, we also had tasty breakfast casserole, fresh fruits and don't forget the chocolate! Doesn't this picture just look like a Hallmark card!

The rest of the week was spent with Jerrys Dad who keeps very busy for an 88 year old, he loves to fix things. And we save a long list of fixing things to do every year for his visit lol.
Before he headed back to Florida we took him to his 1st ever concert at the Sprint Arena. George and Reba were great and I think he enjoyed it!

And now my house is quiet. Everyone is back to their normal routines. I'm happy to be back to the drawing board again.... fun projects coming up... I promise!
Have a happy week!

Ugh, I am so jealous. My 2 favorite singers in one show.. and I missed it. Did you have a good time at the concert. I guess hearing details from you is better than nothing.. I am so sad.. lol. I bet that was an excellent concert.
