Happy Day After Easter!  Thought I'd recap our Easter weekend...
{Lots of pictures, sorry!}
  • Friday kicked off Spring Break for the boys, but I had to work so Lee was home with the kiddos.  We were having my family over for Easter lunch and my "to do" list was a mile long!  You can imagine my sheer delight when I got home from work and Lee had pretty much cleaned the whole house.  All I had left to do was dust and run around with the glass cleaner.  He is soooo great like that...most of the time I think he would be the better parent to be at home!!  That night he took the big boys to the Carolina baseball game while Hampton and I went to the grocery store. 

  • Saturday was the first day in 2 months that we have been HOME all day!  It was wonderful...when the boys woke up we made Resurrection rolls {or "Jesus cinnamon rolls" according to Jackson}.  If you've never heard of these, you can read about them here.  We read part of the Easter story before we started and the rest while our rolls baked.  I love that our boys are at the age that they truly understand when we try these special projects!  During the scripture reading at church on Sunday, Tradd leaned over to me and said, "Mama!  That's our story!"  Love that boy.  Please excuse my appearance in the picture below...Lee had the camera and it was early!  

  • The boys spent the rest of the day hiding eggs for each other and playing outside.  I got my food prepped for Sunday, put my flower arrangements together, ironed our Easter clothes, and finished up inside.  Then we all were outside cleaning the porches, picking weeds and playing!  We grilled out steaks and sweet potatoes and went to bed early!  PERFECT DAY.

  • Sunday morning we woke up to baskets from the Easter Bunny!  The boys got a movie, a new book, and candy.  Somehow, the EB always brings my favorite candy {Snickers eggs and Reeses Pieces} and leaves them in the boys baskets.  Amazing.   Hampton got new spoons, diaper cream, baby food, and a book.    

  • Before we headed to church, we tried to get a few pictures of the boys.  WOW.  I am shocked that we got a good one! It's hard to get all three looking at the camera and smiling, but we did it!  The boys wore a tie for the first time...Lee's mom {Nana} had purchased matching outfits for the boys, including Hampton, but I didn't try H's on in time and the shirt was too big.  I had this sweet hand-me-down outfit from Strausburg that matched perfectly so that's what he wore for his first Easter!   

  • After church, my family came over and we ate a delicious lunch.  The boys helped me set the table, they even wrote the placecards themselves!  We had ham, mac and cheese, brown rice, squash casserole, collards, fresh tomatoes, and deviled eggs.   I made Paula Deen's Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.  Google it.  It will change your life.  
  • We wrapped up the day by riding over to my Aunt's house to hunt eggs with cousins!  I realized there that we had not taken a family picture so my mom took one for us....not in our Easter best, but that's ok.

  • Sunday was also my friend Cindy's birthday.  I am missing her like crazy, but so thankful for the promise that we will be together again one day.  Can you even imagine what Easter is like in heaven?
