Saturday Photo Hunt - Purple

My 84th
This Week's Theme: Purple
This is my little Emily. She is 7.5 months old. Time sure flies. The quilt that she is laying on was made with love by hubby's grandmother before she passed away. My mother-in-law found them years after her passing with the grand kid's names stitched on them so hubby received his as a Christmas gift from his grandmother after her passing. It is very colorful, as you can tell. Emily loves it. I only wish that her great-grandma was able to see her enjoy it!

Photo Contest at writefromkaren.com
This photo was taken last Sunday and it is one of my favorites from the day. This is my niece, Haven who is celebrating her fourth birthday today. I think that it represents our Spring so well. The rain drops are falling around her head, but not breaking her spirit. In fact the entire time she was in search of eggs, she had her tongue stuck out catching rain drops. We hid and hunted Easter eggs in the rain. The kiddos declared this Easter "The Best" Easter ever. To see more photos from our rainy Easter, you can click the picture of the birthday girl. To enter Karen's Spring photo contest, click the graphic above. Good luck to all who play and many thanks to Karen for hosting.

I love both pictures - Emily sure has a great big smile on great-grandma's quilt, and you're right, the picture of Haven certainly embodies the joy of spring!
Have a PURPLE weekend!

What a great gift his grandmother left. My folks weren't very sentimental but fortunately, my mom did save some stuff for me.
Emily is SO adorable! Haven is a cutie, too...
I remember the days when I was a young mom and my husband's family would all get together - lots of cousins - he had four brothers and sisters! Our family get-togethers were loud but fun.
