The Joy of Easter - Pixel Celebrates with Her Family & Her Peeps


Hi friends! Just hanging out with my peeps after an amazing weekend of fun. I hope you all had a great time celebrating the joy of Easter with your family and friends, sharing everything that this special day means and enjoying the day with laughter, food and a sense of renewal. We certainly celebrated all weekend long.
We started out the weekend by enjoying all the pretty flowers that are growing in our yard. It was such a pretty day with a blue sky and sunshine all around! I just had to stop and smell the flowers!
 The pear trees are in full bloom too, and looked gorgeous with the sun kissing each bloom. I wished I was a little bird so I could fly up in the tree and sit among the blossoms!
On Sunday morning my sisters and I were surprised with a basket full of Easter toys and goodies. So many new little friends to play with! It was such a fun time that we all had! I can't believe the number if little peeps and cute little squeakie fuzzy friends that showed up at our house. I guess they'll be hanging out with the duckies now.
Dixie, Sassy, Bella, Peanut and I played and played until we were exhausted. It was almost like Christmas!
And speaking of duckies, inside the big basket of toys was a special little friend for me, a round little duckie I'd never seen before. I knew he had to be for me so I gently picked it up immediately. He is very sweet and we became instant friends! He squeaks just like all my other duckies and rides on my back really well too. He is very special because he is made by the company who made all my other favorite duckies. Unfortunately they no longer make that model of duckie. I've been heartbroken for months over this sad, sad news, and Mommy has searched far and wide to find me a similar duckie friend. Well, this little guy is a direct relative of those duckies!! So I am a happy Pixel again. I still have my favorite duckies, they are just getting injured more and more each time I play with them, so I have to be extra careful. Now...I just have to come up with a good name for my new round duckie friend.
Do you have any ideas for a good name for him?
So, how was your Easter friends? Tell me something special about it in a comment.

The Joy of the Coming of Spring - Pixel's First Spring Poem

It has turned to be a tough winter for a lot of people across the U.S. and abroad. Many tough snow storms have wreaked havoc on many locations. However, spring in in the air and on our minds now that it is March, so I wrote a short poem to get us in the mood.

Snow is on the ground, but I will not wear a frown. 
Joy is in my heart so I'll let that light a spark. 
I can handle any storm, I can deal with any weather, 
As long as I have you, we can go through it together. 
Spring is in the air, I see smiles everywhere, 
I think that I shall grow pretty flowers in my hair.

I hope your day is filled with sunshine and flowers, whether outside or in your heart friends. And remember to always wear a smile. It makes you feel good inside and out and you just don't know how it will make someone else feel good too!

I'd love to know if any of my friends are experiencing some spring like weather, so let me know in a comment.

The Joy of Taking Time to Smell the Flowers

I have been away from my blog for over a month now and I've missed it. I've missed you. But I've been away because my Mommy has had some very serious medical issues occur that required my full attention, and while I was able to do the occasional Facebook post, I could not commit to a full blog post. I know you all understand these things.
This time away has made me think of how important time is. We are all only blessed with a short amount of it, so it is up to each of us to make the most out of each day we have. So I say, take time to be kind to a stranger. Take time to tell a loved one how much they mean to you. Take time to look at a sunset, and take time to stop and smell the flowers.
