Easter update.

We are still reeling here from the aftermath of Danny’s diagnosis.  But life seems to have a way of moving on with or without your permission.  We are knee deep in research and big decisions regarding his therapies and schooling which means I’m up til the wee hours of the morning and completely slacking in most other areas.

Tired or not…we had a house full of little people who were anxious to celebrate Easter!

We started by making a quick visit to the Pink Party House (which is no longer pink…but the name lives on).  My kids talked about this trip for days as seeing their cousins ranks as far up the pole as meeting the President.  When we woke up Saturday morning, Danny was burning up with fever.  We debated what to do and eventually just tossed him in the car with the other kids.  As the day wore on the fever climbed higher (despite alternating medications) and we decided to take him into the urgent care.  They couldn’t find anything significantly wrong with him and sent us home (the story of our lives).

Meanwhile….the kids hunted eggs and spent a beautiful day just playing hard.  I’m so thankful for these bigger cousins in their lives who take the time to stop and play with them!

At the end of the day we threw 5 very dirty, grouchy, tired kids in the van and drove home.  Sunday morning Danny was still under the weather so Mr. P opted to stay home with him from church and I took the other kids.  Then we hosted a little lunch at our house with Mimi and Baboo…as well as another impromptu egg hunt in the back yard (with empty eggs…cause that is how we roll!)

It was a beautiful weekend (minus the sickness) celebrating family…and most importantly…our Risen Savior!
