easter fun!

Happy Easter Monday everyone! I hope that your Easter weekend has been full of fun, family, and blessings all around:) We have certainly not gotten done all that I had hoped, but that's okay. Life with a seven-month-old is full of surprises sometimes, and I'm learning to not sweat it when things don't go exactly as I'd planned.

After a wet and yucky Good Friday, we opted out of the church Easter egg hunt/party. I decided it wasn't worth it to drag Noah out in all the mud when he can't really participate yet anyway. Oh well...there's always next year! At least then he'll be able to run around and really hunt for the eggs on his own.

Then, we MISSED sunrise service at church on Sunday morning!! Ahh!! I was so disappointed! Darn alarm clock...it didn't go off at all! So at about 6:00 when Noah woke up to have a bottle and I realized what time it was, I had a fit. Jimmy talked me down, though....we would have never gotten him and me showered and ready, Noah fed and dressed, and out the door for the 15ish minute ride over there when the service started at 7:00. So...we celebrated own our own at home. Not the same as church, but what else can you do in that situation? I do kind of wish now that we would have tried...my brother told us that there were several families dragging in at 7:30! But again...I guess we'll have to wait until next year!

We did actually spend the rest of our day with my extended family (father's side). My aunt and uncle have a lake house in my mom's development, so it was only a short drive down there for a big lunch with all the aunts, uncles, and cousins. Again, I think next year will be even better....two of my other cousins had babies right around the time that Jimmy and I got married, so they are a year and several months older than Noah. Next year, Noah will be able to join in on all the egg hunting and fishing fun!

After lunch and whatnot with the extended family, we headed back for the evening with my mom and dad, and my brother and nieces. It was fairly warm, so we had a fun evening playing on the back porch!

Noah and his Easter basket..

We got him sports themed eggs...and after the jellybeans were taken out, he had a blast. Chewing on them of course:)


You know, we won't remember in 20 years that our alarm clock didn't work that morning, or anything else that didn't go exactly right. We'll remember this sweet smile...

 So even with the mishaps, we had a wonderful and special *first* Easter with Noah:) I hope that all of you had a fun time making new Easter memories this weekend as well! Until next time,


cherish the *little moments*
