{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ April 12, 2015

Happy Second Sunday of Easter!  Here's to celebrating the Easter season~ all 50 days of it! :)  I have lots to share this week due to my missing last week entirely and the trip we took to West Virginia to visit my daughter and her family. 


Here are two of the prettiest things I've seen in a long time.  Verity, 7 months, is a replica of her mother.  Those blue eyes! *sigh*

 Arane, who will be three in two months (!), looks so sweet and grown-up with her newly bobbed hair.
The smudge on her forehead is from our game of "no-boys baseball."  The term comes from
Best Friends for Frances, and I don't think Arane really understands what
"baseball" or "no boys" means, but we were playing it, whatever it is.  And we had fun. :)


I can't let a {phfr} post go by at this time of year without showing what's blooming around here.  All in all, it's been a warm spring so far.  The yard and woods are surprising us by blooming in places we had no idea would bloom.  Since we moved here last summer, we didn't know what spring would look like, but it's been fun to watch.

These shouldn't have been a surprise because, well, I planted them last fall, but I forgot about them and so was surprised anyway! lol  They are on the edge of the woods and can only be seen through the windows in the back of the house, but I think it's especially nice to have flowers framed by windows and that were put there expressly for the edification of anyone who cares to look out a window. . . if that makes sense, which I'm afraid it doesn't, but hopefully you get my drift. :)

These are sweet miniature daffodils.

Redbud.  We have some wild and some cultivated, but no matter how much there is, it's never enough to suit me.


(I neglected to take any pictures of the forsythia, but we were delighted to find that in the yard too.)

I don't know that I can say the moss is blooming exactly, but whatever it is doing, it's lovely.


Arane and Verity's mommy and daddy, in the interest of producing non-picky eaters, encourage their daughters to eat all kinds of foods.  This sometimes results in funny faces from Verity, who is relatively inexperienced in the food department.  


My Good Friday hot cross buns minus the raisins because I didn't think ahead.  They were good anyway. :)

Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more {phfr} fun!
