Goodbyes are hard

Sunday was a sad day in our house.  Yia Yia and Papou left to go back to Canada.  Poor C asks for them several times a day. He'll ask, "Where Yia Yia go?  Pa Papou go bye bye? He's doing pretty well though.  We can distract him pretty easily. 

He was sick this weekend.  He was such a pitiful little thing.  His fever would get to 104 and then he would throw up.  It was just a virus though and he got over it in a few days.

Sleeping on me when he was 1 month old

2 years later.  He's still mommy's baby when he's sick.

Daddy got a new toy

So did C.  He loves his new scooter

Happy Easter!

Christos Anesti!!  Christ is risen!  God gave us such a beautiful day to celebrate.

Mom Z and I started this morning at the Greek Church.  We went to the midnight service so we had a late night.  It was a lovely ceremony and I'm so glad we went.  I love how traditional the Greek church is.  At midnight they turned out every light and blew out every candle in the church.  After a few minutes there was a faint light coming from the front of the church.  They used that candle to light all of our candles. 

We are having so much fun with Yia Yia and Papou!  Or as C calls him Pa Pa Pou.  We have kept them busy during this trip!  They have put in bead board in the entry, put in a patio, built me a shelf, and planted a garden.  Now they're working on wainscoting in the dining room.

I love this sweet boy!

Yia Yia and Papou.  (Yes... we have two couches in the living room.  It has come in quite handy while they've been here! We're working on getting all of the extra furniture out of there.)

Flying his kite.
Waiting for the egg hunt to begin

The mass chaos of the egg hunt
 C is almost potty trained... if he's naked.  So if you pop in on us, you'll most likely find him with no pants on. :)  I have pictures of this but I'll save him the embarrassment.
