My Storeybook Easter

I had the chance to spend the Triduum and Easter with my sister and her house full of boys.  I was pretty excited to meet John Paul for the first time, and the little munchkin didn’t disappoint.  It’s amazing what a little boy can do to your heart!

I was pretty content to just sit and hold him all day.

But his brothers would hear none of that. They wanted their John Paul time, too.

oh, and their Aunt Joannie time, too.

Actually, if anyone needs an ego boost, I would highly recommend becoming the fun single aunt to eight nieces and nephews.  The four older boys kept me on my toes, but I definitely felt loved all weekend.  Especially while playing a new game called “Squish,” which essentially involved me laying on the couch and the four boys laying/sitting/crawling on me.

And this guy was a pretty big flirt all weekend.

We had an Easter egg hunt, we ran around the trail in the woods (well, let’s be honest – I timed them and they ran), we played Mousetrap, and we put together puzzles.

We played until we were all tuckered out.

Boy, do I miss them.

Next up- George’s Good Friday masterpiece.

    So glad you had a good time! I completely understand the joy of being a Very Fun Aunt. It IS a great ego boost! All the boys are so cute, esp. John Paul. Happy Easter to you!

    Oh, Joannie, I used to be the fun, single aunt…. sigh. It WAS the best!! 🙂 Thanks for all the new photos and glad you had a good time!

  3. Looks like a great Easter : ) Is that George rollerblading? I still remember him as a baby at the Woodward House. And Jill telling everyone she was pregnant (with him) in a parking lot somewhere in West Virginia.
