Easter 2016

Yes, I'm still here! I've picked up the lap top again after putting it down for a while so I'll try to do better - we will see :)

 Brian and I had Good Friday off so we had a three day weekend which was very nice. We had a low-key Friday and Saturday, which was good because we were very busy Easter Sunday. The Saturday of Easter weekend, we got out the Egg decorating kit for some Easter egg decorating fun. Mallory chose to do the glitter eggs so I was ready for all of that everywhere. 

She was pretty excited to get to coloring and decorating

She was very focused the entire time

The glittery final products. She was very proud and we had a lot of fun doing this together.

Since we knew it was going to be cold and rainy on Easter morning, we went out on the pretty Saturday afternoon and took some pictures of Mallory in her Easter dress. I love my pretty girl!

She chose this Easter dress because she could twirl in it so there had to be a picture of her twirling around. Probably one of my favorite pictures of her!

Easter morning, we set out her Easter gifts. Doesn't your child want a grabber for Easter? Ha! She has kept asking for one so she got it! We also got her some toys for her sandbox in her new play set and they can also be used for when we go to the beach this Summer! She also got some KitKats - her favorite.

And see what she wanted to play with first?


She would pick up her basket with her grabber and spin it around before church :)

After church, we headed to Grammy and Pappy's for lunch and Easter Egg hunting

Brian's birthday was on Easter we celebrated him with a birthday pie - it was so good!

He got chocolate pie at Grammy's and then we headed to my Aunt Janice's to celebrate with my family and he got chocolate cake there.

Ah. A Gal and her Grabber. Ha! I love that she took it outside for a spin before church. Miss Mallory, you make me smile SO BIG!
