During the next few years it came in thick, dark and very wavy. The fact that my mother insisted on giving us children "permanents' was not something I was fond of. See the ponytail and bangs on the left....after one of these traumatic experiences, I was always very sad that the bangs were even higher than my hairline!
I decided to take one last pic before it all falls out...sigh. A person close to me told me that when she had chemo -after the first treatment, hers turned lackluster and she could literally feel it 'dying'. After the second treatment, it all fell out. Mine is projected to do the same. I know there are much worse things and it will certainly save my life....but right now, I'm moping. I know...it's just hair.

Kathy made these de-lucious creations and brought them over...YUM!! Her famous Spanakopita and Baklava...to die for! She even had her GREEK tee-shirt on....ha! We all fight over this food (Chelsea knew that she had made some and was bringing it so asked if she could come over for some too...none was left!). It was the perfect ending to the weekend...thanks, Kathy!!

|Wonderful lamb cake that my neighbor Joan made for us!|
Later Larry brought home a diary that Joe had kept the last couple of years. He had pasted to the cover many of the great grandchildren's pictures. It touched both our hearts a great deal. Being the week of Easter, it brought many poignant thoughts to light. The Savior's death and Resurrection first, and then family and how you just want to keep them all close. We were lucky enough to see all our kids this week...if not in the same day.
|Emma and Bailey last weekend on an Easter egg hunt...|
|Dad-Mike helping a little|
|A beautiful warm day so we could spend some of it outside.|
|Uncle Tim with Mike helping Bailey...push the trike??|
|Today, the rest of the clan came and it was the "boy's day"! Love Cooper's expression here after brunch as we begin their egg hunt!|
|While it was cool out, the boys still wanted to be outdoors....here throwing sticks and stones in the creek.|
|It's so much fun to just watch them be boys!|
|Did I say it was fun to watch them??|
|Here they were chasing butter-flies to put under the bug-microscope.|
|Did they catch one, -nope.|
|But I bet they both went home tired little guys. It was a happy ending to a busy week. Certainly it kept me contemplating God, life and family...and making the most of all our time together. Happy Easter!!|
