Happy belated Easter!


Hello, everyone! How was your Easter? Tons of chocolat? Fun with family and friends? Or simply relaxing and enjoying the holiday? Here everything was ok. To start with, on Friday night, after brushing his teeth, Lucas' loosen tooth fell! This one took THREE MONTHS to fall! I was all worried, since his other milk teeth fell after two weeks, and I've even booked an appointment with the dentist to see what was wrong (on the phone, he said it's rare but could happen), but thankfully it fell and the Tooth Fairy came and left a coin for him. He looks soooo funny now!



Then, on Saturday Lucas made his little Easter basket, filling it with paper and decorated with little bunnies I draw every year and one by himself. He still believes in the Easter Bunny, so I follow every step of this ritual! After he's asleep, I put his chocolat eggs on the basket, make bunny paws out of flour on the ground and even spread some M&M on the floor as if he dropped some on the way to the basket. On Sunday morning, at 6 o'clock, Lucas was already up! He just couldn't wait... As always, he became happy and amazed because he didn't hear a sound when the bunny came! LOL We make suprise faces when we "find" our own eggs on the bed, and so he starts the day eating chocolat and feeling very lucky, because even being so far from Rio, Easter found him...


To celebrate his fallen tooth, we had a picnic as breakfast on Saturday morning. We simply prepared sandwiches and juices and took everything to the tolp of a hill next to our house-to-be, where the view is great. We sat there enjoying the early morning, watching the birds come and go, curious about us invading their realm. Ringo followed us and was sweetly pampered, and even a woodpecker could be seen! It was a very good morning, as Lucas pointed out so well...






But Lucas also gave us a little fright on Saturday afternoon: while preparing a new fishing stick with dad, he took the hook without us noticing, and it went deep into his finger. I guess his scream could be heard in Rio, so high it was. I became white, because he was really frantic and didn't want to show us his finger and I thought it was still there. So i took him in my arms and we took him to the bedroom where he laid down on the bed, and after some time, he finally showed me the damage done. I could only see blood all over his little finger, so there we went to the restroom to wash it and see how bad it was. Fortunately there was only a little hole, but I could see the track the hook left inside his flesh, no wonder he screamed so loud! It must have hurt a lot! But Lucas felt relieved when noticed the cut wasn't big - this was his fear, to see a big fleshy, bloody cut along his finger. Since it was like that, he let me clean and properly take care of it. Oh well, it was enough to literally shake my morning for some time... And I'm sure he'll never hold a fishing hook again so soon!


To close the post, of course I had to talk about da house - or do you think you would escape this time? LOL Tiles being put in place! They really change a lot on the look of the place...



I wish you all a wonderful week, stay in peace!

Ohhhh...poor little Lucas! What a scary episode that must have been, for both of you. Glad he's ok!

I love the pic of the tiles. Your home is getting more and more ready and I can't wait to see pics of you guys living in it!

Love all these pics and as soon as there's nice enough weather - I'm taking my hatchling out in the backyard for a breakfast picnic!!
What a fabulous idea!

It seems everyone has to take a fishhook at least once in their lifetime, thank goodness it's over for Lucas, now he can fish in peace!

I'd scream too...

Isn't it sweet how they still believe in the Easter Bunny...even after they stop believing in Santa, they will hold on to the Bunny and the Tooth fairy...LOL...

I love his gappy smile! So cute when their teeth are coming in!

Happy belated Easter, and I love the idea of the bunny coming to visit with eggs and candy. :)

Awesome pictures of the house, the tiles really do change the look and it looks amazing!

Glad to hear Lucus isn't hurt too badly by the hook. Boys will be boys though... *glances at his own son who just decided to jump down the stairs as I was reading blogs and smacked his elbow on the railing.. *ouch*

Love the pic of the three of you together! Lucas looks so adorable with his gap-toothed smile-- he has a jack o'lantern grin just in time for Samhain there! LOL

Fish hooks can be nasty! Thank goodness it didn't do more damage than that. Hope he heals quickly. Are you breathing normally yet, Mom?

The tiles on the floor look GREAT. You're right, it really changes the look inside the house. Its definitely starting to look more finished.

Always good to hear from you, my friend.

Oh you are so cute!
Hang in there! I know how frustating and exhausting it can be to build a home. It has been three years since the time that i have been vaccuming 10 times a day, cleaning and fixing things. It seemed like it would last forever. Just do nt forget to take care of yourself. Blessed be**

I love the close-up of the smiling Lucas with his newly missing tooth! Glad his finger is better. And your new home just gets lovelier and lovelier.

Michele said...

Ah, it is painful to get something sharp into the finger and I never want to look at it because I'm afraid of what I might see.
I am so happy it was not too serious and he came out of the incident ok.
He is still a very brave boy!

The house looks so good. I cannot wait for it to be done and you are all a family living inside.

Hugs♥

Oh poor Lucas, how shocked he must have been about his finger! Of course, you weren't at all shocked ;-)!
Your home is coming on so well now. What a difference now the floors are down. I'm sure it's getting harder to wait now it's all getting so close.

I bet that scream froze your blood! How frightening for you! Thank heavens it was just a little hook accident! Easily mended. Poor Lucas, it must have hurt so much!

I am so excited for your house! Every new picture shows how much closer you are to living there. Just gorgeous!

Glad you guys had a nice Easter (and tooth fairy visit!).

Serena said...

What a lovely picnic spot!

Poor Lucas....how brave he was when he realised it was only a small hole....fishing hooks can be very scary!

I checked out your blog a week or so back and LOVED seeing all your house pics. The tiles look great and, I too, can't wait to see you living there. I'm so excited for you, Nydia!

Poor baby! I'm glad to hear Lucas is okay and the damage wasn't too bad. He looks so cute without his baby tooth! And I love your Easter traditions. My family doesn't pay much attention to the Easter bunny but maybe after the little one comes we will!
