I hope that all of you had a good Easter holiday.
Here's a picture of the kids this past Sunday all dressed up in their Easter clothes (that Grandma U bought for them. She actually sewed Kailyn's dress though.) I love how J.J. is holding his hands in this picture.

Well yesterday it actually started to look like spring here. The snow was all gone and I could see some of the bulbs in my garden making their way out. In fact I could see the purple from my crocuses! I was pretty excited to see that even though our lawns look absolutely horrible. Our neighbors had mice on theirs this winter so there's these long big burrowed tunnels all over the front lawn. It's a mess!
However, this morning when I woke up there was a blanket of that lovely white stuff AGAIN!!!! What's up with that? And it's still snowing out there! ugh!
Oh well, all the more reason to stay inside and keep cleaning. I've been having major spring "cleaning" fever! The last week in half I've been trying to go through every room in the house, cleaning and purging stuff. It feels so good to get rid of things ... although my daughter doesn't quite agree with me on that one! But it's amazing how much "stuff" (or should I say "junk") can accumulate in 7 years. That's how long we've been in this house - WOW! I can't believe that.
Well, off I go to do some more purging & cleaning!!

    I need some of that spring cleaning fever - could you bottle it up and send it to me please? I need to get busy going through stuff since we will be moving in less that 1 month!

    The children look adorable!

    Dear Cari....I HATE spring cleaning, so don't you think you should take an impromptu trip to OTTAWA where the sun is shining and the daffodils are starting to come up? I wouldn't mind if you tended to your fever here.

    Oh, and as usual, GREAT pics!
