We had a wonderful Easter, going out to brunch with my dad and Deb, my brothers, family...it was a nice day. The children looked so beautiful in their new clothes, we even got Matthew out of the sweatpants. In the picture, we had just gotten home from church and they wanted to go to grandma's, so they weren't very happy, but you'll get to see how big they are all getting.
We also went shopping for Angelina's dress, veil, and shoes for her first Holy Communion. The first dress she tried on was the ONE. I snapped a photo in the store and she is so beautiful!!! Enjoy!

I have been super crazy knitting socks. I love socks!!!! Thanks to my lovely best friend Michelle, who helped me through the turning of the heel, I've knit 2 complete pairs. The first is made out of brown Vanna's Choice acrylic yarn. Normally, I'm a yarn snob LOL and I work with more natural fibers, but for an acrylic, this is an awesome yarn. The other pair I knit out of cotton that I hand dyed last summer. They match a shirt I just got last week :)
I've discovered the secret to great tasting chocolate chip cookies...they are so good, even Uncle Johnny eats them and even complimented me on them. My stepmom said they were like cookies you get in a bakery, the kids say they are the best cookies in the world, and my hubby, God love him, said they are the best he's ever had. Don't they look YUMMY!!!
