Easter Festivities, K's B-Day, and Tylenol

Hello, all!
The title shall be explained in due order. First let me say, what a week!
Saturday, our church had it's Easter Egg Hunt. We had a good many kids show up, the youngest, less than a year - and the oldest(child, that is), around 11 or 12. Poor Micah was still sick, so he couldn't go. It was so much fun, and no, I didn't hunt for eggs. ;) I was appointed the photographer! I took around 180 pictures, and most of them are pretty good if I do say so myself. I've added just a few of them to this post, more will come later, hopefully.
Sunday was my little sis K's birthday! She turned 10 years old, can you believe it? I can't. Of course we also had our special Easter service at church(plus breakfast). The children's choir performed and Katie sang a solo in one of the songs. She did great, we are all so proud of her! (And before any of you grandparent's ask, I did take a video, but my computer won't upload it onto my blog for some reason.) All in all, a great Easter! He is risen, indeed!
Monday and Tuesday were fairly normal, but then yesterday came along. It was my usual Wednesday, busy, but towards the end of the day, while Micah got better, I started feeling bad. About when church started, my voice went. This was no surprise, my sinuses had been bad all day. After a while, my voice got so bad I could barely speak. Some people, with their boundless compassion, started calling me things like Croaky, Froggy and Kirstie Alley(by far, the most insulting).
Today hasn't been much better. My voice is still bad, if not worse, and my head and throat have been hurting, so please say a little prayer for me. Thanks.
Oh, and one more thing. Thanks to all the grandparents for various Easter sweeties. They are good for what ails you. :)
Later days.

...still waiting for the "wiser" part...

Hey everyone!
I have recently received some not-so-subtle hints that someone wants to see birthday photos. Well, here are a few.
I think my favorite is the one of Micah posing. By the way, he took the very unflattering one of me eating. I only put it up because he very much likes to take pictures and I am all for promoting that kind of hobby. :) I've also put up some of my own pictures, not that I'm vain or anything... I hope I'm not vain... Anyway, whether I'm vain or not, I seem to have a strange obsession with flowers, but only taking pictures of them. Weird.
I hope ya'll enjoyed another of my scatter-brained posts,
Later Days!

Another Year Older...

... And Another Year Wiser... hopefully.
Yep, yesterday was my birthday! It was great! I got to spend the whole day celebrating with my family, just what I wanted. Now, I know the grandparents will want to know every detail, so here you go: After the family present opening we went out to Alanta Bread Company for lunch, which was delicious. To those who have never been to Atlanta Bread, GO NOW!!! Everything there is great, trust me. Then we went to Lifeway and I got a new Bible (a wonderful gift for anyone. When in doubt, get a Bible). Then we went home and rested for a while before church, after which we had hot-fudge cake. My own choice. However, I think we need to quit putting candles on my cakes, it's getting to be a fire hazard. LOL!
All in all, I had a wonderful day. Thanks to my family who made it fun, thanks to Mom, who made it all possible but had no fun all those years ago, and thanks to God for... well, EVERYTHING! :D
God blessed me so much last year, and I know He will continue to bless me and teach me, and I know He will continue to love me.
P.S. Never fear, grandparents, pictures will be posted soon. It's just that my computer hates me today.
