hammock project

  One of my dreams was to have a hammock in our backyard.  It hadn't happened for awhile because we don't have any tree stumps in our yard.  After watching a show on HGTV we finally figured out a way. And with Brian's dad's help, we finally made it happen.

Garden Gnomes

   Look at the new residents in our garden. Violet loves them. I had found this beautiful piece of driftwood the other day at the beach and didn't know what I would do with it. Then I spotted the gnomes and just knew it would make them a perfect home.

Earth Day 2009

  Yesterday while it was gorgeous we went on our first annual Earth Day walk around our neighborhood and picked up trash.  Spoke with some new neighbors along the way. There were other events we could have participated in, but we thought why not start in your neighborhood.

Violet with Grandma and Grandpa

Here is one of Violet with her Grandparents wearing a vintage dress Grandma bought her. Grandma also gave her some new beach toys and a crocheted chick made by her Great Grandma. I will post a pic of that later.

Easter Cont.

Here are some pics of such a great day!

The Basket

   Inside Violet's basket was  a few things made by me.  A knitted chick, and some play silks. She also got a wooden cell phone and camera, some new books and drawing paper.

Easter 2009

   This year Greek Easter was a week after American Easter. We brought Violet to see the Easter bunny last week and had a small celebration with Brian's family. Today Violet woke up to a trail of eggs leading to an Easter basket filled with goodies. We had a great time with all the cousins. The weather turned out to be absolutely gorgeous. Here are some pics to share. As we say in Greek Christos Anesti!
