Hello April, Easter Report and Hello Dorothy!

We have had a couple of busy weeks so I haven't had a chance
to update the good old blog lately!

Last Friday morning, Maddy and I took the little kids 
(Janie, Walt and Harry) to breakfast with the
Easter Bunny at our local children's zoo!
Janie and Walt asked the Easter Bunny if he was a boy or girl???  Harry tried to feed it plastic eggs!

They had a great time.  If only the weather had been warmer,
it would have been perfect, but little kids don't care.
I, however, was shivering!
There was an Easter egg hunt and pancakes, sausage and
eggs for breakfast!  
And we got to ride the train too 
(more shivering)!

I actually cooked Easter dinner!  Yes, moi - don't fall off your chair! :)
It turned out rather good.  We had the usual fare - ham,
cheese potatoes, green bean casserole, dinner rolls, salad
and angel food cake with smashed strawberries!
Yumm!  
While I was slaving away over a hot stove, Maddy put together an 
Easter egg hunt for the
little kids - so fun!

The big event happened on Easter Monday!
Little Miss Dorothy Jo joined the extended family.
I just love her name, don't you!
Philip and Catherine added a little sister for Janie and the 2 boys, 
so now they have 2 and 2!
She is the most beautiful baby!
She weighed in at 9 lbs. 5 oz!  Nice size and so pretty!

Auntie Maddy and Dorothy

I stayed with the littles while they were in the hospital!  
That was fun
and they kept me hopping!

Can't wait to snuggle that little bundle soon,
but I seem to have a cold again, so will
have to wait and get over that first.
Meanwhile, I will have to make do with reports and photos!
She is a bundle of joy and her sister and brothers (along with her
parents, of course) are over the moon happy!
