Snapshot Saturday - Easter 2012

I have so enjoyed looking at everyone's Easter pictures all week on Facebook.  Even the scrappiest folks look good on Easter Sunday :) I think it's the first taste of sunshine and the promise of Springtime.  

We usually spend Easter at my mom's, and this year was no exception.  Layla was allowed to visit my mom's for the first time...and promptly pooed on the floor within the first 15 minutes of arrival :/ In her defense, it was the longest car ride she's ever been on...who knows how long she'd been holding it :(

Anyhoo, after the poo was cleaned up and Layla was allowed to live, we did enjoy the weekend and ended up with these fine photos Sunday afternoon. 


From left to right: the youngest, Layla, the firstborn, Lizzie, the middle daughter.


 Lizzie and my middle daughter (how bout those dimples, folks?)

yours truly and my best buddy Layla :)



I so hope others are sharing Easter pics today!! :)

    You look as young as your oldest daughter!  It had been hot as blazes here up until Easter day, which was cold.

  6. Everyone looks great dressed up!  And poor Layla, she must have been embarrassed to have to go on the floor...

  19. It's a tradition for us...the girls usually enjoy it as much as I do :)

  20. Lizzie usually holds on for dear life most of the time...she's pretty timid and our chaos sometimes overwhelms her, I think :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ha! Thanks...she looks a lot like my mom's side of the family and so do I.  The older she gets, the more I think she favors me when I was her age...although I've always had dark brown hair and hers has always been blonde. :)

  22. Aw, thanks! :)

  23. Thanks!! At 43, I've learned to take compliments as they come..."sucking up" or not ;)

  24. I'm sooooo loving the sunshine after our rainy, chilly winter :)

  25. GREAt pics! You all look lovely, and it looks like Easter was a beautiful day there!

  26. I know she was, Sam bc she NEVER does that at home.  She potty trained quickly and even knows to "ring the bell" hanging on the doorknob if no one is paying attention.  I didn't punish her; blamed myself for not giving her more time outside when we first got there.

  27. Thanks, Kathy! :) We've enjoyed some incredible weather here lately.  I'm worried though that our summer will be unbearable since we never really had a cold winter.

  28. Thanks, Trish! :) We wouldn't have it any other way :)

  29. Thanks, Kay! :)

  30. Middle daughter has had dimples since the day she was born...we have no idea where they came from but they are precious to me :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Awwww, poor  Layla. She looks too sweet to stay mad at. And everyone does look so sunny and happy. Spring will definitely do that for me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You're all so gorgeous!! And poor Layla … not quite the way to get another invitation!

    ReplyDelete
  33. A gorgeous day, Andi! Thanks! :)

  34. I don't even think my mom was mad...just worried that we were going to have a rough weekend....thankfully we didn't though!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I worried about that, Jenners :( When you're a German Shepherd, your pile of poo is not exactly easy to overlook  :p

    ReplyDelete
  36. Beautiful pictures, and I am laughing about the dog!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You all look lovely!

    We had our dog at my MIL's house and she was good. She didn't have any accidents but of course, we watched her like a hawk. She did better there than she does at home!

  38. Everyone is suddenly cute, aren't they?  I think it's the summery clothes and peak of sunshine, maybe. Who knows... Easter does liven up life!!!
