Easter 2015

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weekend filled with love and happiness!
Having Friday off was AH-MAZING! I got my workout in early, mowed the neighbors and our yard and then drove out to the beach to go on a bike ride with Ryan.  We grabbed lunch at Taste Unlimited and then did some sight seeing on the way home.  The beach has some amazing houses down there.  I ended up babysitting Friday night.

Saturday morning, my uncle and I got up early and drove D.J.'s car to Richmond for his parents to pick up later that day so he will have his car this week.  More on where he will be for the season tomorrow :) We got back home around 10:30 and I treated myself to a mani and pedi! It was so relaxing and I loved it.
We celebrated Easter on Saturday night because my cousin Heather was getting confirmed into the Catholic church.  It was a different experience (that lasted 3 hours), but it was very cool to see her and all the others get introduced into the church.  The kids both fell asleep and thank goodness the littlest stayed at home with their grandma.
Bobby and Julie stayed in Georgia for Easter this year, so it was just me and the parents, so we snapped these pictures before church!

 Could they be any cuter?! This is "their" picture pose that they always do and sometimes it's hilarious, but this time it turned out precious!

 She wanted to do whatever he was doing even though I insisted it was guy thing! Too cute!

Sunday morning I slept in till around 9:30 and had some pancakes at my parents house before heading to my aunts for our annual Easter Egg Coloring Contest! Each year we decorate eggs and have the neighbors come judge them based on categories that we make up and some home seem to add more categories each year! Everyone gets into and it's such a great tradition that makes our family who we are!

I decided to do a variety of eggs this year.  The M&M's are for the judge - all growing up she would give me m&m's whenever I would come over to their house, so this was specifically for the judge! The bee was something I saw on Pinterest that I knew I could easily put together.  I colored the black with a sharpie and dyed the egg in yellow and then used glue in one of the color boxes to glue the cotton ball wings on! The purple glitter was a last minute egg to add a little bright color.  And of course, the baseball team logo that D.J. will be with this year, if you were following on Insta, you know where!! Tune in tomorrow for more deets.

Little Liam wanted to take a selfie and this is what I got!

Around about 4pm, the kids were worn out and it was time for everyone to head home! But before we did, the judges announced the winners and I took home Most Creative for my bumble bee.

It was such a great weekend and I cannot wait till next year when the kids double and we have the other Wilson clan back in town. Now if only Bobby, Julie, and the hubs could be here too...

Happy Monday!!
