Last weekend we celebrated Easter many times with all our family and friends. We began the weekend at Bebe and Big Daddy's house. We hunted our usual cash eggs and then enjoyed some Terry's steaks and fixins. Unk P was the only one to make it in this year. Max loved chasing him through the yard to beat him picking up eggs. Max made enough money to go and buy all the "Train your Dragon" dragons. He was pumped!Saturday morning, I hosted a Baby Brunch to honor one of our best friends, Gindy. Little Miss Kerrigan is due to arrive in May. We feasted on some sausage spins, quiche, and salads. It was nice to sit and visit with some of our close friends. Kerrigan got lots of books as everyone brought their favorite book and then wrote a note to her on the inside. Hopefully she will treasure these through the years. No pictures was the request, so I am keeping my promise!
Saturday night we ran wild with the Culdesac Flashlight Hunt. Max found the most eggs with 66 in total. It was then decided that he has out grown his "small kid head start" since he got 2-3x as many eggs as some of the teens did. Whoops! He had a great time getting them and will have to run fast next year.
Sunday after a tremendous church service and playing with all the Easter Bunny Goodies we headed to the Kelleys. The kids all loved the annual hunt for candy eggs, and got enough candy to last until next Easter. We then had a great dinner of ham, potatoes, corn, beans, and salad. It was a busy weekend, but we are so blessed to be surrounded with so many family and friends.
