We had the most wonderful weekend celebrating Easter with my family! My parents have been here all week and my brother and his wife came down to celebrate with us this weekend. The weather was absolutely gorgeous on Saturday so we took full advantage of it by playing outside all afternoon and evening!


When it got dark outside we played Abigail’s most very favorite thing- jailbreak! Jim taught her how to play a while back before the time change because it was always dark by the time he got home from work. So he showed her a game that they could play outside even though it was dark out. Now that time change has happened, she is usually in bed by the time it is dark enough to play, so getting to play jailbreak is a really, really special thing. We taught everyone how to play and had a great time! (It is also why I’m wearing all black. My jailbreak game be strong)

Then on Sunday morning Abigail got to open up her Easter basket from Grammy and Pappy before we got ready to head to church!

She got some new polly pockets, a bunny, and this cute little Fisher Price barista set that she has been making me lattes(with no foam, Mom! and with whip!) for me constantly ever since.

No worries- Mabel got a basket too! Her own bunny, some puffs, and some blocks.

I had to make sure to take a bunch of pictures of Mabesy’s first Easter! You know first born Abigail has an entire photo album somewhere of her first Easter- so here are a few of the Mabel girl.

I had really, really hoped and wanted to get the girls matching Easter dresses. But I ultimately decided not to spend the money on them and to just put them in something that they already had. And then one day this package from my Mom showed up at the front door. When I opened it these matching dresses and sweaters were inside! I could have cried because we hadn’t even talked about it. But it was such a thoughtful and loving thing to do. And how cute is the green and white?! I love it so much.

It actually rained all morning, but the weather cleared just briefly to be able to snap some outside pictures after church! It was really special not only getting to celebrate with my family, but to also celebrate Mabel’s very 1st Easter!

We are so thankful to get to celebrate this holiday- this day to remember the wonderful news that our Lord and Savior has risen! He is alive!
