Heather's Bridal Shower

This past Saturday my family threw Heather a bridal shower.  It was so much fun to celebrate Heather and my brother Billy's upcoming wedding.  I have the best extended family and I love every time we get together.  Thanks to everyone who helped and attended to make the shower such a success!

I'm so excited for Billy & Heather's big day!  They are truly in love and so happy together.  I couldn't wish for more than that for my big brother.  Love you both!

This cupcake wedding dress cake was amazing!  Thank you pinterest!

Heather & her mom Pam

Clara LOVES her auntie Heather!  I think the feeling is mutual. :)

I wish Jenna could have been there!

We started with intros since some of Heather's family was there.  Everyone had to draw a ribbon and then talk while wrapping it around their finger until it was gone.

Thanks again to everyone for coming!

And here are some bonus pictures from this past week...

This past Tuesday we got to meet our friends Abigail & Paul's latest addition, Natalie Jane.  She is so precious!!!  We love her already.  She is just as sweet as can be and smiled several times while I was holding her.  Can't wait to cuddle her again.  Paul & Abigail, we are so happy for you guys!  What a beautiful family you have.

They turned the fountains on at the park.

My sweet, gorgeous cousin Tessa had her high school grad party yesterday.  They thought of everything!  It was such a great party!

I have no words.  She's my favorite.

And these two sillies...  They had so much fun at Kevin and Teresa's last night playing with their puppy Bella.

Easter weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends.  It is fun putting together Easter baskets for our little ones and watching them excitedly hunt for treats, but we are most grateful for Jesus.  We are so thankful that God sent His Son to die for our sins so that we can spend forever with Him.  He is risen!  We got Clara and Davey The Story of Easter and have been trying to make sure they know that is the real reason we celebrate Easter.  I recently heard about Resurrection Eggs and want to do those with the kids next year.

These first couple pictures are from Thursday.  We just had to get outside so we layered up and went to the park.  Look at what my little 19 month old climber is doing... rock wall - no problem. ;)

Davey loves cruising in his car.

We did Easter baskets for the first time this year.

Of course Davey reaches right for the ball!

She wanted to wear her sunglasses and hat. :)  We spent Saturday afternoon and evening with Michael's best friend from high school and his family.  His sweet little girls gave Clara this scooter since they've outgrown it.  Think she likes it? ;)  Thank you Kinsley family!

Clara played with play dough for about 2 hours yesterday!  That little play dough fun factory is the best $5 I've ever spent!

Zachy is such a fun uncle and so cute in his fedora.
