Easter 2009

Again, I am a little overdue on the blogging. I have been getting ready for a party at our house this weekend and have put blogging at the bottom of the priority list. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I know we did.

Dad and Kim came in on Friday with lots of crawfish to boil. We had a crawfish boil Friday night with some old family friends The Willis' that just happened to be in town and other friends and family. It was great to see The Willis boys, Chet and Ben. I have not seen them in like 28 years or something close to that.

As you can see in this picture Jack had a great time with the crawfish. He had to stir them about every 5 minutes.

Our friend Andi's sister was in town and she brought her son Trip that is only a few weeks older than Jack. We have been wanting to meet him for a while and are glad that they got to come. The boys had a blast. It looks like Mr. Chet was telling them a good story.

Saturday we relaxed around the house and then dyed eggs that night. Jack loved it. He had to do it all on his own, so we had a pretty big mess after, but it was well worth it.
The Easter Bunny was very good to Jack this year. It was Jack's first year to really understand what was going on so I think he wanted him to have plenty to enjoy.The first thing he grabbed was his Harold the Helicopter. He is really into Thomas and Friends and other than the choo choo's the helicopter is his favorite.
Later Sunday morning we headed to a wonderful Easter Mass at our church. It was great having my Dad, Kim, Lindsay, James, and Mimi at church with us. There was no nursery so Jack got to come into church. Let's just say we will never attend church again if there is no nursery. He wanted everyone in church to know that he had choo choo's and that Jesus was there. Afterwards they had a little easter egg hunt for the kids. Jack loved it and thought all of the eggs were his.

Later that afternoon we relaxed and then grilled out steaks for dinner. It was a wonderful day. We are so thankful for all of the many blessings we have in our life.
