Happy Easter

We woke up Easter morning in Chattanooga, TN after our friends Aidan and Jinna Anne’s wedding on Saturday night.  We made record time driving back to Birmingham to make it to lunch with our families by noon.  It was a great afternoon.  Kim and Kendall had setup a long table in the driveway for us all to sit around and enjoy lunch.  We ate delicious home-cooking and had a great time visiting with everyone.  The kids were their usual silly adorable selves.  My mom, Dwayne and sisters were there too!  Katie and Chuck couldn’t stay but it was good to see them even if it was brief.  Emily had her friend Mary Kate home with her for the weekend because Mary Kate is from Augusta, GA.  And it’s the Masters golf tournament this weekend.  And yep, Mary Kate’s family rents out their house during the Masters to people attending the tournament.  So she came to Birmingham for Easter weekend.

I was sad we couldn’t make it to church this morning, but grateful to be able to spend time with our families today.  I love our families.  We all get along really well, and I enjoy being able to see everyone on holidays. 

Evey and Bennett quickly become center of attention as most grand-babies do 😉 And Cate is still sleeping most of the time, so she just gets held and passed around.
Do we have some cute nieces and nephew, or what!?

We spent the rest of the day laying on the couch watching the Masters.  It’s been a long busy weekend and we are exhausted.  I’ve got to get back to work tomorrow so I’m sure it’ll be an early night for us as well.  Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend as well with families and loved ones.  I’m so thankful for the blessings God has given us.  Sometimes I need to be reminded how blessed I truly am.  God has been so good to us and I pray I never forget that.  I have a wonderful husband who I am grateful to have by my side.  Happy Easter and happy 6 month anniversary to us!
