Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
She knows what she knows
I know what she`s thinking
-- Echo and the Bunnymen "Lips Like Sugar"

I know what she's thinking, too. She's thinking "give me some of that Easter Candy!"

Is everyone else hoarding about 57 pounds of chocolate, jelly beans, and various other temptations? I'm beginning to suspect that the Easter basket is a tradition perpetrated by the American Dental Association. As luck (good or bad luck, I'm not sure) would have it, the Short People prefer the really, really sugary stuff to chocolate. And guess who loves chocolate more than anything? That would be me; the one who has gained 40 pounds in the last 6 months thanks to my Magical Mystery Illness. I'm trying to step away from the chocolate bunnies but they keep calling my name...

We had a great time celebrating Easter weekend in Southwest Virginia. The Short People had a fabulous time with their cousins, going for walks in the woods, riding Pop's four wheeler and strewing toys from one end of the Turman's house to the other. We also visited my grandmother and my grandfather in their respective nursing facilities, and hosted a baby shower for my cousin Rob and his wife Ashley. It was wonderful to see so many family members and enjoy a little mountain air.

It was so good to see you and Tracy this past weekend even if only for a short while. Can't wait to come out to the shore and have a longer visit. Hope all is well.

Looks like a nice Easter guys need to stop in and see us sometime when you're up! I loved the pictures of the girls. Too cute as always.

That would be fun. I'd love to see you and Martin and the Short People would LOVE all your animals. They might ask to move in!
