Not your "normal" Easter miracle(s)

That miracle would be this picture taken at Breakfast with the Easter Bunny:

Which is the first time since this picture that she's been in the same room with the Easter Bunny without screaming:
Ahhh, the memories! Yes, that's my arm holding her on his lap and yes I'm a terrible, picture obsessed Mom. But what you can't see is that I cropped that picture down from this one, and did a little digital stamping (the Easter Bunny got a little wider to cover up part of Aidan's legs and body):

And the second miracle: she let Miss Tina braid her hair.

Learning T-ball

Katherine has her first T-ball practice on Wednesday so we've been practicing at home with her (and when I saw "we" I mean her & Charlie). She's pretty good at hitting off the "T" and does good at hitting when you toss her the ball too. Catching is another story--we just started practicing this.

got this one...

the lesser known strategy of "close your eyes, stick out your glove, and hope for the best"

and my favorite! take note of how she's holding the glove out instead of wearing it--also her own strategy!
