Easter 2017

I had the great good fortune to have a full dinner table for Easter this year!   

Nick, Kelly, Audrey and Elise....Jamie and Sean.......John, Ruth and Laura.....Hubby and me

I hope this isn't a commentary on my cooking!

After dinner, Kelly did some sweet little braids for Audrey's hair.

Then outside for some playtime!

The awesome swing Jamie built got some good use

This is how you put a baby to sleep!

And Memere got a selfie after Elise finished her nap in my lap!

Time for the Easter Egg Hunt!

Memere didn't mind helping!

Laura found her gigantic egg with the special surprise!

Auntie Jamie shows Elise what's inside!  
(most of the chocolate had to be refrigerated.  It was 80 degrees out and the eggs had been hidden by the Easter Bunny earlier in the day.)

Audrey tries to figure out how to get inside her egg.

Noah and Elsie search for eggs.

And the swing gets some more use

After packing up the car, Elise decided she would be the one to drive home!

It was one of the hottest Easters on record, but it was wonderful  to be outside in the warm sun, with the breeze blowing and the smell of spring in the air.  It's always such a blessing to have my wonderful family come join us in our home.
