In a world with a 4 year old, a 3 year old, a 16 month old, a 3 month old and two soldiers you never know what misadventures await. Life is always springing the unexpected and I want to share them with you. Welcome to my world.

Easter 2012

 I have to say that Easter this year was very unique. I was still in the hospital after having had Fallon. So 'The Easter Bunny' came and did baskets in my room. That way I wasn't missing anything. Although I think my Mom thought it was strange that we were ok with having the baby that weekend, but it worked out beautifully in so many ways that we hadn't planned on.

It gave my sweet Grandma the opportunity to see my three older ones once (the day Fallon was born) and Fallon twice. I had no idea that Easter Eve was the last time I would ever see my Grandma alive.

Anyway, my kids made out like the cute little bandits they are. The Easter Bunny didn't skimp on all the fun-ness! My Mother-in-law even came and hung out for awhile and watched my kids go through their baskets. It was kind of nice quiet afternoon, but it was sad when my family left and I was alone at the hospital again. No fancy dinner for me!

Me in all my hospital gown glory!

Fallon was there, but sleeping so peacefully and he did get some cute clothes.


  1. Cute! When my daughter was in the NICU, we did Halloween at the hospital. Sometimes, those times make the best memories :)

    1. It really is and I know my kids thought it was the coolest thing ever. The night nurses even did an Easter egg hunt around Mom & Baby, and although my kids didn't get to participate they were given some of the treats and stuff later. It was certainly a unique experience. :)
