Cupcakes, candy, and my sweeties

I just  watched April the giraffe give birth to her baby boy. It made me feel weepy and emotional.

Liam's mommy posted the five month ultrasound picture of his baby brother. Gazing at the image of that little honey boy made my heart swell with love and anticipation. Liam is getting mighty impatient, too. He keeps saying, "Where IS HE!?"

Oh he  knows. He kisses mommy's belly all the time and talks to baby Alex. He is going to be such a good helper. He loves babies.

87 degrees today. I have been baking desserts and cooking all afternoon, so tomorrow before the family arrives, I'll pop the potatoes and pasta in the oven. I'll rise early, make deviled eggs, a garden salad, and a fruit salad, and wait for all my sweeties to arrive. Our former babies are all tall teens now, and our two oldest are in their mid-twenties. Where have the years gone?

Our kitchen is being taken over by ceramic bunnies. They are on the window sill, guarding the cupcake trays and sitting on shelves. Can't wait to see Liam's happy face when he discovers them.
Hmm, I just counted the sprinkled cupcakes. My funny honey thinks if he moves them around I won't notice there aren't a dozen on the tray. Boys will be boys.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter, sunshine, and blessings.

I hope that after everything has settled down, you'll have some pictures of Liam and those ceramic bunnies. And maybe your older babies, too, if they aren't camera shy!

Tell Sas he is not supposed to sneak any cupcakes. They're for the kids--not the senior citizens who ACT like they're a kid.

The anticipation is the best part. I am cooking nothing! Been invited to a campsite for a feast!

Those cupcakes look good. I can hardly blame your husband for being tempted by them. :) Sounds like you had a nice Easter.
