Isn't she the cutest little glasses wearer ever?! I think so! These frames took some convincing to pick out though, Kate's favorite pair was NEON pink. Even the person helping us at the eye doctor exclaimed "Oh My that is bright!". Thankfully he helped hide them when she was distracted and I was able to talk her into this pair!
Sadly, for 3 hours a day Kate is still very unhappy. She hates wearing her eye patch, and throws a fit for the entire time she has to wear it. It almost makes me miss the struggle with eye drops.
This year we did Easter a little different than normal. Instead of doing Easter baskets on Sunday morning and adding to the chaos of church, we did baskets Saturday evening and watched some videos about Christ. I think it was a great idea, that I may make permanent! And the kids weren't so hopped up on sugar for church!

Kate and Abby have started a new thing where they lay under my bed and watch cartoons. And yes, Chance likes to join them. It cracks me up to see my kiddo's feet peeking out. *Kate was too far under there.
In other news, Abby has started drinking out of a real cup. Usually because she steals it from the table or counter somewhere, but at least she is decent at it and doesn't always spill--just most of the time!

Since Kate's surgery our family has experienced a huge outpouring of love from our friends and family. I feel overwhelmed by gratitude. People have watched Abby so we can go to appointments with Kate, sent packages, cards, flowers and prayers. Several people have brought us meals and loaned us movies to keep Kate entertained. Kate has told me on several occasions, "Lots of people love me right mom?" And of course the answer is YES! Seeing this many people serve our family makes me wonder what I ever did to deserve such amazing people. Nothing. That is my conclusion. I don't deserve this kind of treatment, but I appreciate it so much! I would be lost without the support system I have.
