Hap-py Easter! Boing, Boing, Boing...

That would be the noise we've been hearing over and over again these days. You see, the Easter Bunny brought all kinds of fun little trinkets, but methinks the Bunny didn't realize how annoying this particular toy would be. And given Vinny's fascination with all things shakable, we hear this little toy often....

I find myself looking back these days, saying to myself, a year ago this time we were...Well a year ago this time we had such an easy time of getting through Mass. It occurred to us on Easter Sunday that Mass has become significantly more challenging week after week. Last year, we held a sleeping Vinny all through Mass. Now we find ourselves shoveling Cheerios into his mouth because eating makes for a happy baby boy, passing him back and forth because this little sack of potatoes gets heavy fast, and walking with him across the back of the church because sitting still is not one of Vinny favorite things to do. Whew-it can be down right exhausting!

Vincent looked so handsome in his new Easter outfit from Mommo and Boppo. Another holiday, another tie.

Anthony's brother John and our nephew Will came out for a visit this weekend. It was so nice to catch up with them, since we don't get to see them all that often. We spent the afternoon at Tom and Weez's house, and here we have a beautiful shot of all the Mandrola Men: Anthony, Vincent, John, James, Justin, Tom, Will, and Boppo. This is one we will forever treasure.

Here is John posing with James and Justin:

Below is a great shot from a couple days earlier when John and Will came by the house for a visit. Vinny was trying out his new snack trap, but it was pretty frustrating for him to get his hand out. Uncle John said it was down right torture for the little guy, so he took the lid right off!
