(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Easter Bunnies

Things have been batshit cuckoo stressed strained around our home since Isora’s birthday party. There’s not a short answer for what’s going on other than to say, everything. I’ll write about everything that has happened soon, when I have a bit more perspective.

But for now let me talk a bit about these two incredible girls that make getting up and out of bed every morning an incredible and exhausting adventure. And while this Easter was pretty subdued and not too celebratory due to circumstances at home, they may not have received Easter baskets but we did get the girls all dressed up in fancy dresses and had a delicious dinner at Jido & Teta’s house.

Our little Izzie loves to run around the house and get into things. She may as well be a cat for how curious she is.

The girls and their Uncle Bassam. They just climbed right up in his lap for hugs and I caught this little photo opp.

Trying to talk to her Uncle Andre.

And cuddling up next to Jido on the floor. Every time he lays down she walks over and lays down right next to him. And he cracks up every single time. It’s pretty adorable.

She may be too young to figure out how to play the Easter Egg cracking game but once she got a hold of an egg she wouldn’t let it go.

The beautiful table.

After dinner and cake the Monk went bananas. Running and jumping and generally acting like a monkey.

But then for one brief shining moment she was my sweet little angel with that gorgeous real smile.

Then I tried to take a picture of the two of my sunshines together…and instead of just sitting next to each other, Ella tackled her sister. Which Izzie didn’t seem to mind.

And then I almost got them sitting so nicely next to one another. Almost.

But we did get one almost normal family picture. Even if behind these smiles there’s some pain and hardship I’ll take it for Cedella’s crazy eyes. This is us, imperfect and goofy and sometimes a little bit sad. But we are all here, we are all together and our little almost normal family is the most important thing in the world. I love these three more than anything in the world even if they do cause me stress, heartache and gray hairs.

But this…little slice of happiness is the cake, the icing, the whipped cream and the cherry. All. The. Sweetness.

You want more sweetness? You can follow me and my little ladies on Instagram @mrseyebrowz.

Happy Wordless/Wordful Wednesday to one and all!! Have a great Wednesday!

    Two totally sweet totally goofy girls, huh? I think you won the Awesome Kid lottery. The “crazy face” Monk is making in that family photo is classic. I think we should just call it Monk Face.
