JOYfilledfamily easter

A family picture is always a pretty sight for Dad and I.  It gives us all a visual to remind us to count our blessings – totally worth the discomfort I have when seeing myself in the photo.

Groucho Marx Papi picked this out from the bank’s treasure chest.  He doesn’t even know who Groucho is but he does a perfect impersonation.

Papi is always good for a laugh.



We have to put Dragonfly’s pjs on backwards since he prefers to sleep in his birthday suit.

Every Thursday, here at Like Mother, Like Daughter!


  1. Lena--Your kids are so cute!!

    What a beautiful family photo--you look wonderful!

    That beanless chili looks great!

  2. I had to put my daughter's pj's on backwards too, for that very same reason :)

  3. I'm hard on myself too but you are beautiful Lena, inside and out! All For:)

  4. Oh my goodness! I have had 5 kids so far who all went through the stripping stage and I never once thought to put the things on backwards! Duh!
    and what a lovely family:)

  5. What a beautiful family photo Lena! I think all mothers have those same thoughts when viewing ourselves in pictures. You're not alone!

    Easter blessings to you and your family.

  6. I love the family photo. oh so beautiful, and the coordinated dresses on the girls are lovely. too funny about the PJ's we had that problem at our house too, where LF kept unzipping her one-piece PJ's and getting out of them but we never thought to put the zipper in the back! ((Thank you Lena for your prayers for my nephew Jack. We are indeed asking for St. Peregrine's intercession!))

  7. I happen to stumble upon your blog while I was looking for a photo of Mother Teresa. I just have to say your blog is beautiful. I am now following you. Please come visit me if you'd like. God Bless You and Your Family! Happy Easter!

    Warmest Regards,
    Annamaria Settanni McDonald
