Last Week

Last week was a sad and crazy week. My grandfather passed away Sunday, we went to work on Monday, flew to NC Tuesday, had visitation Wednesday, the funeral was Thursday, spent some time with my family Friday, and flew home Saturday.
It is always nerve racking to travel with a child, but Presley was WONDERFUL. People that had the luck to sit by the dreaded 4 year old on the plane even told me that she was the best kid they had ever sat by. It was really a blessing. I should add that being able to download TV shows on iPads is also a blessing!

My grandfather was such a unique person. He was buried in French cuffs with beautiful cuff links like he always wore, a pin from the Republican Presidential Task Force (his TV has the Fox News symbol burnt on the screen), and a copper coffin. He was drafted into the Army during the Korean War, so an American flag was on his coffin before they presented it to my grandmother. I know he is in a better place than we are, and I know we will see each other again!

Easter 2012

This Easter has been so bittersweet for us. My grandfather passed away this morning.  He had been in the hospital for a couple of months following an emergency surgery. We knew that he had a long road of recovery ahead of him, but the complications that arose were too much for his body to overcome.  I am sure that someday the fact that he passed on Easter will be comforting to me, but today I am just sad that he is gone. 

Presley had a great Easter. On Friday, she got two mini lop bunnies that Nana Raine went and picked up for me (Thanks Nana!). Their names are Peter and Cottontail. They are both male, and they are really sweet. I am basing that on the fact that they haven't bit Presley (the bunny strangler wrangler) yet.
Cottontail is on the left, and Peter on the right.

Isn't this a sweet picture of Presley choking holding Peter?

Presley wanted the bunnies to play in the playroom. She tried to entertain them with various toys, but they were occupied looking for an escape route.

I suggested they have TV time, and they were very thankful.

We stayed with Nick's family last night and went to their church this morning. We had lunch and an egg hunt after church, but I forgot my camera  :(  I hope that my MIL and SIL will send me some soon!

14 Week Checkup

Yesterday Presley and I headed to Little Rock for my monthly doctor appointment. The appointment was over within five minutes, but we heard the heartbeat and I talked to the ultrasound technician about getting a peak at the baby in the next couple of weeks :) I have to go back for a penta screen at 16 weeks, so the tech said we can come by and see the baby too! Today Presley got a surprise from my family! Thanks Nana Raine, Big Daddy, and Will!
