Easter was a little different around here this year. For one my oldest brother has decided not to celebrate Easter with hunting eggs or family get together. So, We will have a family gathering at my mom's in April.
Also my cousin and his wife got remarried. I know it was really sweet and I'm glad they were able to work things out and get back together. I have always thought they were a great couple. Now!, Why would I call their wedding Bitter Sweet? Well, about a year ago Pat got into some trouble and was messing with drugs. That is why she divorced him. She loved him, but could not deal with his mess at the time and didn't want their little boy involved. Pat got caught and with the divorce, this woke him up. And I'm so glad, but he is going to have to serve some time. That's why their wedding was bitter sweet. Pat got sentenced last week and the judge let him stay home through the week end and report to the jail Monday. I didn't know about the wedding till Saturday about 3 or 4 P.M. and about 6 P.M. I got a call from my Pastor's wife asking me if I would do the wedding cake and help with the wedding. Yes! We had to really throw this wedding together! It turned out wonderful! Here are a few pictures of the cake and the wedding.
Okay! For the Birthday boy! Eli turned 4! For those who do not know, Eli lived with us from not long after he was born till a little after his 2nd birthday. I really thought we were going to adopt him. I got really attached and was very hurt when his mom pulled her little stunt. I'm okay with all of it now and have forgiven everyone involved. The great thing about it all is that Eli and I still have a bond that no one can take away. I am proud that his mom has finally straightened up and doing right and things are probably better for the way they turned out.
The other thing that made this Easter so sweet was it was 17 days earlier than normal. That's how Eli's birthday landed up on Easter this year. The next time Easter will be that early will be 2228.
Here are a few pictures of our Birthday Boy!
