Easter Weekend

We had a fun & busy Easter weekend spent mostly with family!  It was really nice.  I am so fortunate to have the supportive family I do.  They helped me so much this weekend, especially since TL has been so busy with work he hasn't been able to spend a lot of time with us (thankfully that ends this week!)  I have so many cute pictures from this weekend - Holidays have always been special, but adding these two babies has made them even more amazing!

On Saturday, we went to an Easter celebration near my parents house with my mom, sister & nephews, Ryan and Adam.  Andie had a great time!!  After the egg hunt, she tripped and fell head first into a concrete step. :(  It absolutely broke my heart and she immediately had a huge goose egg on her forehead and it instantly turned black and blue.  I may have shed a tear over it, but after a few tears, she wanted back down to run and play!  It was pretty scary, but she is a tough girl.  She loves other kids, especially my nephews, so she ran around like crazy and had a wonderful time.  Nolan is at a very easy-going stage.  Unless he is hungry, he is a happy camper and he seemed to enjoy being out and about seeing lots of new faces and places.  He spent a lot of time with my parents and sister while I chased Andie around.

On Easter Sunday, we woke up and surprised Andie & Nolan with their baskets from the bunny.  She was so cute with her new Disney goodies!  Then we went to my Aunt Karen's house for our annual family celebration.  She has a beautiful home and is so sweet to host our very large family there every year.  My busy girl ran around like crazy with all of her cousins and had a wonderful time.  I was very surprised at how many eggs she collected during the hunt.  It's amazing how kids pick up on what to do so quickly.  It was adorable.

We added Nolan in and the chaos erupted!
My beautiful, happy & sweet little girl.  Oh, how these babies warm my heart!
 I feel so blessed & grateful.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!

It sounds like such a great day! It is always chaos for us when we try to get cousin pictures as well. :) Our cousins gang consists of two 10-yr olds, three 6-yr olds, one 4-yr old, and three babies under the age of 6 months...It's a madhouse at picture time!
