Braces are off!!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!!  I was sick with a cold, so I spent a lot of time resting.
Josh got his braces off today.  I am going to share some before and after pictures.
This is Josh on the first day of school 6th grade year.  You will probably have to click the picture, but his teeth were so messed up.  They were really crooked and he had a cross bite. 
This picture is of Josh, maybe last week or so with his braces on.  Then posted below is today with his braces off.  He has to wear a clear retainer for 4 weeks, then he gets a metal retainer for 6 weeks, then he gets a different retainer for nighttime that he will probably have to always wear at least to sleep in.  Anyway, I think he is happy to have them off.  Have a great week!

Easter Blog Hop

Just like at Christmas I am going to show you some 
of my Easter decorations and they are not my "prettiest", but they are my favorite made by my Granie who has passed away now.
These were always displayed at her house when she was living at Easter and she passed them on to me.  I love their retro look and she wrote her name on the bottom of everything she painted when she did ceramics.  I love them.  I have many things she made.
On Easter we always go to church.  This year they are having a service on Saturday, so we will attend that service so we can be freed up more on Sunday.

I still make Easter baskets for Josh and I get something small for the dogs.  I also like to put dog treats in plastic Easter Eggs and let the dogs have an egg hunt.  Here is a picture of Meisha  on one of their hunts.  She enjoys this the most.  My other two dogs think I am crazy.  Meisha at least goes along with me...hahahaha. They must touch the egg with their nose to show me they have "found" the egg.  Happy Easter!!!
