Happy Easter to everyone, it really was a great weekend at our house.
Our only family photo was taken after Gabby had injured herself and was unable to recover for a photo.
Still unable to recover but we snapped photos anyway. My parents came to town which was really nice and fun too spend time with them. My siblings were at their in-laws so we had a quiet celebration the 7 of us. (Quiet meaning: 3 grandchildren instead of the usual 8)
I thought they looked super cute and they were really good (I may or may not have bribed Gabby about not getting a cake pop several times during the service.) But seriously, as per usual, I teared up at one point feeling overwhelmed with happiness and feeling blessed.....no it isn't always cherries and berries but this is one hour a week when I actually sit back and realize all that I have been given and I am thankful.
The day leading up to Easter was very busy and a lot of fun for all of us. (I like to pack in everything I wanted to do the last 40 days in the last day.) We cleaned cars, picked up the house, ran errands and then it was time for the fun activities.
Egg decorating....everyone's favorite.
Our goofy member of the family laid the eggs for us:)
then Tess took care of carmel rolls for the morning and they were delicious. (It is official, I think both girls can both make them alone, without my help. Sniff, sniff. But they don't want to do them without me, right?!?!?!)
and lucky for us this guy took care of making a great ham for the festivities.
