Easter fun (just a little bit late)

We had a fun Easter Sunday!
The Easter Bunny brought a few new games and puzzles and then we were off to church.
All three looking at the camera is rare!

Preston chose to pout after church and did NOT want a picture taken.

No idea whose idea this was...
We needed more shade and a bigger bench for our outside picture!

Grandma Sue has the best Easter egg hunts!
Candy AND money were found!

Dustin was the chosen one to be the "the horse."
He played his part well.

What a fun day with lots of family!

First Communion!

It's hard to believe she is old enough to make her First Communion.
But it happened.
It was a beautiful day!

Bubba cleans up pretty nice!

At a retreat a few weeks ago they each made a banner to hang on the pews we sat in.
She did a great job and we couldn't wait to celebrate afterwards!

Her whole class.
She has a great group of kids in her class.

Her wonderful teacher, Mrs. Cayton, came to see them all make their first communion.

Afterwards, we had brunch with everyone.

We had to take a few pictures before she was allowed to change!

Preston was already off playing so we left him out of the picture!

Peighton wore MY veil from when I was a little second grader making my own First Communion!
Thanks for saving it, Mom!

We survived living in the basement!

We are in the homestretch of the kitchen/upstairs remodel!
The counters will come next week and then it will be DONE.
We currently have really nice ;-) plywood counters in the kitchen.
We started this project the first week of January.
We cooked and ate in the basement from January until March 19th.
It wasn't that bad considering I have a stove, microwave, fridge and garbage disposal (very important!) down there!
It did get a bit annoying to carry all the groceries down all those steps though.
We've been spending a lot of time downstairs while the mess was upstairs.
They love playing in Preston's hunting blind.

Cy doesn't care where we are as long as he is with all of us!

While the floor was being laid we did actually have to LIVE down there for one night though.
It was like a big slumber party!
It wasn't that bad...there are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and of course the whole kitchen.
It could have been worse. ;-)
The kids loved it and asked when we could do it again...

The two of them and their sleeping bags took over my sewing room.

Cy thought he might get to stay too...

They both slept very well and LOVED being down there all night!
I heard them giggling with each other about 6:15 though from across the hall.

We are all ready for it to be DONE!!!!
