Sunny Easter Weekend

Nice visit with my Mom and David on Friday.
Finally meeting up with my friend Kerri and her adorable little girl, Kiera
Painting eggs. Some of these photos look almost the same, but if you look closely at the egg crate you will see they are different eggs. Ruby picked up and held each little egg and begged me to take a picture with every single one. "Oh, PLEASE, Mommy..take picture!" Too too sweet.
Beautiful sunshine called for an impromptu egg hunt in the yard Saturday. And yes, that is a marshmallow peep hanging out of her mouth in that one pic. 
Easter brought even more sunshine...and lots of photo ops! Love how she grabbed the dog for the shots in the lawn. I didn't even pose them!
All dressed up...just came back from a lovely service at Jeff's parents church.
We had Easter dinner at my cousin Angie's. So much fun. The kids played, hunted for eggs, and disappeared into the playroom for and hour or so at a time. The parents caught up and enjoyed talking and watching old family movies. One special moment was some footage of my Gram that they took 10 years ago. What a special moment to see my Gram alive and happy again. Brought tears to my eyes...but good ones. The cupcakes were my creation. So love creating pretty little yummy things! But after next weekend (one more bday party yet for my brother and nephew) the baking will come to a halt and we are back to healthy eating!

Such a lovely weekend. We are so grateful for the big, beautiful family we have and for the friends that have touched our lives. Hope you all had an incredible weekend!
