It came up on my iPod’s shuffle as we were pulling into the driveway this morning. It’s been haunting me ever since.
Catching up on my photo posting. Here are some of my favorite snaps from Easter Sunday. I didn’t catch any photos of the girls with their Easter baskets before Mass. We had an egg hunt when we returned from Mass. Sophie didn’t really get it. Once she found one egg and discovered it had candy, […]
