Easter Sunday has always been one of my favorite holidays. What could be more joyous than celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ with the people you love.  This year, as we did last year, we couldn't help but reflect back on Veronica's first Easter.  Two years ago on Easter Sunday, Veronica was on her seventh day of life and had developed an infection which prompted one of the doctors to contact us in the middle of the night.  I will never forget how I felt as I watched Andrew from across the room as he spoke on the phone.  For a moment, I was certain that Veronica had died.  Even as I think about it now, I get tears in my eyes. Looking back, we were reminded of how incredibly blessed we are.  Although that isn't something we could ever really forget.  

Happy Easter!!    

It's so hard to get a good photo of all of us.....

Veronica and her daddy.  

Veronica loves kisses!

  1. Thanks for your recent posts. What a difference between the photos where everyone is swaddled in snow suits and the Easter photos with the colorful dresses and shirts.

    Love to you all.

  2. Wow, I bet Easter will always bring back those scary memories as well as feelings of blessings and gratitude. I hope that Veronica can one day can celebrate easter as a special day for her as a fighter as well as a special day for Christ.

  3. Holy cow I cannot believe how old our little misses are getting! She is a gorgeous baby!

  4. Love seeing all the kids dressed up! We haven't tried jelly beans yet but Isabella is sure tempted to share her candy! Take care, hope to see more posts.
