The "waiting" reference in the title......is for Easter. We're almost there. Today is a somber day for Christians, marking the day of Jesus' crucifixion, and the waiting for his resurrection on Easter Sunday. I, for one, am glad Lent is almost over. Today it was so nice to reconnect with old friends from the Cathedral. The services at the Basillica (as usual) did not disappoint, and were a true catalyst for reflection on what Good Friday is all about. (thank you, Jesus, for dying on the cross for us.)

We have been busy filling these last 40 days (really 46, I heard) trying to pass the time with the other three things mentioned. Enjoy the pix!
We took a trip to Indy, and were so happy Lisa and Lindsay played hookey from school, and Papa from his daily activities, so we could all go to the Children's Museum together. I can't sing the praises of this wonderful place enough. So interactive and imaginative and creative... Lucy had a blast! Thanks to Lindsay for being such a great cousin to Ms. Lucy and playing with her sooo much!
While home in Indy, we had an opportunity to visit my friend from college, Heather, and the newest addition to her family: Baby Ava. Lucy and Ava will always share the special connection of adoption with one another, and I was so glad that these two had a chance to meet.
We have been fortunate to have a few Easter parties to attend, including this one, for the community at Lucy's pre-school. It was so sweet to watch Lucy having so much fun during all the festivities.
This was as close as she was interested in getting to this giant-sized bunny....

Lisa and Lindsay put together an Easter egg hunt for Lucy while we were home. Lucy had a blast! Thanks guys!
This was a recent day where spring fever was in the air. You probably won't believe it to be true, but the day after I took these pictures we had 3 inches of snow on the ground! We'll take whatever we can get at this point!
and....our little friend "Greyson" (one of several neighborhood cats that hang out on our back deck). Even with all the icky weather, he still comes to see us regularly.
Happy Easter Everyone!!!
(p.s...thank you for indulging me while I play around with some new picture editing software!)
