Easter, in pictures.

Let's play "catch up", shall we?

I've been a little absent from this space lately. I've been overwhelmed with house projects, raising a five year old, planning a wedding, working full time / 7 days a week, making homemade dinners nearly every evening, and let's be honest - when I finally do get a minute to myself, I want to just sit down on the couch and relax. Or go to sleep.

Which is all very unfortunate because so much has happened in the past (almost) month and a half;
Beginning, with Easter!:

That extra large basket was passed down to me from my Momma. It used to be mine from the time I was a wee lass to when I lived at home and still got a basket every year. Now, it's Peyton's. It was stuffed to the brim with goodies for her to awake to that Sunday. But, what I was most excited about, was the traditional Easter-Morning Egg Hunt for the first time in our new home. 

^^The night before. Rory was feeling the same way I was. Preparing on Holiday Eves for kiddos can be rather (read: extremely) exhausting.^^

^^ But, it's all worth it to witness scenes like this.^^

After our morning of re-hiding eggs and checking out all that the Easter Bunny brought (with only 1 chocolate bunny demolished so far), we headed over to Grammy's house for Easter dinner. While there, Peyton was pleased to find that GiGi and Nenna had a basket for her as well. (Complete with a Frozen towel, hence the creepy Anna eye watching you in the following picture.)

Dinner was delicious, as always. My Aunt made the ham and it was so, so, so tasty. We brought the Green Bean Casserole that has become a Holiday dinner staple over the past year or so; as well as the Carrot Cake Poke Cake that I made for last year's Easter festivities. Both were demolished by the end of the night.

After we all ate our weight in delectable desserts, we decided to take some family pictures - especially since Peyton soon had to go eat yet another dinner with the other side of her family.

^^My Mom & my Aunt Carly.^^
^^Pey & Evan, my cousin.^^
I can't tell you the last time that we took a "cousins picture". So, we were definitely overdue for an updated one + Nick!

^^My people.^^

^^Peyton & her Great-Great Uncle Charlie. He loves her so.^^

I hope that you all had a blessed and happy Easter holiday, too!
Much love.
