Easter Weekend

This weekend was fun. Saturday I had a purse party here at my house for Whitney. My house was full of chatting and laughing ladies. It was great fun! We had some yummy food and I think almost everyone who came bought a purse! I got one, it was my Easter(begged Nathan)

Before the Party I gave the kids there Easter baskets. I put them on the door step and made sure they were all busy then rang the door bell. I yelled "I think the door is for Alexis, Brandon, Maddy and Trinity"!!!! They all came running. I let Madison and Trin open the door. The big kids were like why did you put our baskets on the porch..I gave them the look and told them to be quiet and enjoy there candy! I didn't want them to ruin it for the little girls. They didn't even want to dye eggs or do a hunt this year, I guess they are getting to old for all that stuff. They enjoyed all that they got and the little ladies were so excited!! They just kept saying yahh eder badkets.. it was funny.

Sunday we relaxed the early part of the day, then went to Nathans parents for dinner and an egg hunt(inside). I made cupcakes and a filling for an angel food cake roll Patti had made. It turned out so good!!! Whitney and I had made the filling just has a dip for strawberries the night before at the purse party. When Patti said she was making angel food cake and strawberries I told her I would bring a topping, she let me know it was a roll and asked if I had enough to fill the entire roll. I did and it was great!! It is three simple ingredients cream cheese, jet puff marshmallow cream and powder sugar. You mix all the ingredients with a hand mixer till smooth. It is good as a filling, topping or dip. You should all try it!
After dinner and dessert we filled eggs for the mini hunt. Nathan kept the girls busy while Patti and Gabe hid all the eggs and smarties. Then we let them go for it. It was a lot of fun to watch them scurry around trying to find the eggs, Madison had an easier time then Trinity and only because once Trin found an egg she wanted to open it and eat whatever was inside. So we had to keep telling her to keep looking. Once they were all done looking we let them indulge in there candy and then about 15 minutes later we regretted it, they were having sugar over load So we headed home and put them to bed. It took them two hours to fall asleep!!! So no more Easter candy after 1pm from now on. =)

All in all it was a great weekend. Thanks to all who have Congratulated us on our Pregnancy we are both very excited. We told Madison and Trinity there is a baby in my belly and Madison can't be more happy she says she wants a baby in her tummy too. I told her she has to wait a long long time for that! I asked her if she wants a brother or sister and she said a baby brother! I told her that Mommy wanted her to have a baby brother too. So we will keep our fingers crossed. If it is not a boy then that is ok too. We will take whatever the Lord gives us. Our only hope is that it is healthy and strong. We hope you all had a great Easter and took time to remember aside from eggs and bunnies the true meaning of the holiday.

Fun Easter. Your little girls looked so adorable! Congrats on the pregnancy by the way. Hope you have better luck with getting a little boy than I did. Glad you have a happy Easter.

Fun, fun, fun. I like all the pictures! Too bad the girls took so long to get to sleep after they left here. Funny, Grandpa and I were so worn out, we were falling asleep while watching TV an HOUR before bedtime!
