Let's go to the hop, (oh baby)

The family came into town this year for Easter and it was super fabulous! We ate, played games, watched tv, ate, chatted, decorated eggs, ate, and did other "festive things". Since Qiana is so young I decided to not really do much for her Easter this year, so Emily and I exchanged baskets! It was super fun.

emily's basket....

yes I got her a snuggie!

doesn't she look soooooo cute in her easter dress?

I got quite the haul...

a close-up...and yes that is a Jack Bauer doll, candy grillZ, and some Twilight candies (for me they were a joke...sorry ladies, I am not a fan of "twilight".)

The candy grill...


Of course Qiana did dress up for Easter, along with her cousins, and we headed to church with the family.

We didn't get Elsie in this picture cause she was getting ready at grandma's....sad


The weekend was so fun. Qiana loved looking at everybody and playing with her cousins. Although she didn't give out the smiles very easily, she was very fasinated with all the faces, and loved just looking at everything going on around her.





Kaiya was a my big helper this weekend, and just kept giving Qiana so much loves.

Kaiya helped me decide what Qiana should wear each day, and liked to check on her with me to see if she was still sleeping. One time during Qiana's nap, Kaiya and I brought out my old Barbie's and had a good time. Kaiya decided it was her doll's brithday, so I had to find dresses for all the rest of the Barbie's...and they had better be fancy. I was stressing a little, trying to come up with enough outfits, but Kaiya approved of each one.

Elsie, like always, loved having Angie-Elsie time, and whenever I wasn't holding Qiana, Elsie wanted some love. I don't mind at all though, and quite enjoy it actually. Sometimes Elsie wanted to get in on the snuggling, when Qiana was there too.

One night Elsie came into the room and she and Qiana watched some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for a bit. I think Qiana liked being a big girl.




I loved having my family up, and was so sad to see them go. Sunday Qiana and I just rested, caught up on some tv, and recouped from all the fun.

Hooray for fun family weekends! I know how close you are, I am sure it was hard to say goodbye. And I would love Kaiya's job. I don't think I have seen Qiana in an outfit I have not loved to threads! She has such cute clothes, and you have great taste!

Oh, it was so much fun! It was hard for us to leave.

I love those pictures of Elsie and Qiana on the bed watching Mickey. Elsie thought that was the coolest thing ever!

Oh, Kaiya...I don't know what I'm going to do with that girl when she's a teenager.

Oh, and the snuggie rocks!

My favorite shots are the ones of Elsie and Qiana on your bed, I'm pretty sure your Mom was somewhere smiling at that!
