Easter Sunday

On Easter Sunday, since our church meets in the evening, we got together with Jessi and her gang and Mama for Easter brunch. Besides the fact that I LOVE breakfast food, especially right now, it was such a great time. It was really cool to see how big our kids are getting, as we all sat around a HUGE table, and watched the kids behave like little adults at their end of the table. They all looked so cute, and we had such a nice time, laughing and visiting together. You know how Jewish people say at their gatherings, "next year in Jerusalem!"? Well, I decided that we would declare in faith, "Next year at our new house!". How cool would that be!! I so love to host, and I can't wait to have the space to do it comfortably. With 10, soon to be 11, grandchildren on my side of the family, it's not really a possibility to hold Easter gathering in our little trailer, so we're believing for more space soon! So, here's a family pic from Easter Sunday. Looking at Joelle's face, you'll see that our brunch was not the only 'HAM' on Easter!!!!


I haven't posted in a while, well, basically cause I feel like I've kinda been at a standstill. I feel like I'm just plodding through most of my days, accomplishing nothing of importance. But, besides that....

We had a good Easter, and I thought I'd share.
Saturday before Easter, we had our family gathering with Joe's family. We decided to let the girls wear their Easter "finery"; so Saturday morning was a fun time getting the girls all ready. Ahh, the joy of a house full of females! All the girls got bathed, had their hair set on curlers and had their fingers and toes painted.

They were precious! So, I thought it'd be a fun idea to paint my ever-growing belly like an easter egg. The girls thought this was great fun!
What I didn't know about our Easter celebration, was that after dinner, my inlaws had planned a "sprinkle" for me and the baby! It was such a sweet idea and a total surprise! They totally blessed us with their gifts; diapers, a gift card, onesies, undershirts (the good, sidesnap kind) and our double stroller with carseat! So exciting! It was a fun gathering, and I am so thankful for my generous and thoughful inlaws.
