Happy Easter!

Wow, what a long day. But, it's been absolutely wonderful. Easter is my favorite day of the year. I have always loved Easter (even more than Christmas). For one thing, it happens during my favorite time of the year,spring Also, the reason for Easter is the foundation of my Christian faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The day started with a visit from the Easter Bunny. He brought several things but Riley's favorite was an Incredibles frisbee that came from The Dollar Tree. Yes, we could have saved a lot of money and just bought him something for a dollar and he would have been happy. Holden's favorite was the gift card he got. It's hard to buy things for a teenager.

Then, it was off to church.

Then, off to my grandmother's (Granny's) house for some good eating and an easter egg hunt. (Holden drove us there.) Riley had a lot of fun hunting eggs and playing with my cousin's little girl. His sugars did OK. He was very active and went down to 72. I suspended his pump and gave him a total of 33 grams of lifesaver gummies. Even after all of this his sugar never got over 233. I really expected it to go up much higher than that. Let me just say it again. I LOVE THE PUMP!!!

Then, it was off to my in-law's for some more food. There Riley got to play with my nephew. He was a little less active and we didn't have the lows that we had earlier.

All in all, it has been a wonderful day. I am just so blessed to be alive and to have my sons and my husband. I love days like this. The day was just wonderful. The weather was nice. We had a little rain shower, but it only lasted a few minutes and then it was beautiful sunshine again. So, happy Easter to you all. I hope your day was as great as mine.

(Just to let you know, I just got a new digital camera so until the newness wears off I may be bombarding you with pictures until I get it out of my system.)

Glad things are going better with the pump. It sure took us a LONG time to get things smoothed out.

So what kind of camera did you get? We just added another one to our "stable" of cameras... so I was just curious what you chose.

Hey you finally posted a picture of yourself!! You look great.

Holden looks like he's holding on to the steering wheel for dear life, LOL.

It's great that you all had a nice Easter :)

Easter was great wasn't it Penny? We all really enjoyed the family fellowship, eating like P-I-G-S @ Granny's and watching Riley and my little Sweet Pea hunt for eggs. God has richly blessed us all, the best gift of all being His Son Jesus Christ. That's what Easter is all about. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME, ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD! :)
It was so good to spend time with everyone yesterday. Riley is a super boy and I am so proud of how well he copes with the diabetes and the pump. You have been so richly blessed with 2 great sons and a loving husband.
Love you,
Aunt Linda

Steven, I didn't get anything special. It's just a Hewlett Packard that was on sale. It's a 5 mp camera.

Thank you for the compliment. That was nice.
