An Eventful Weekend

Being a pastor's family means Easter looks a bit different from most other families. However, we made the most of it! We started out with a "camp-out" on Friday. Matt pitched the tent (do NOT try to say that phrase in a sermon, just ask this guy) and then started a fire in our trusty fire pit. The weather was perfect - dreary and cold. Mimi and Papi stopped by to check it out.

Matt and Papi and the magnificent fire!

On Saturday, we tried to stay warm and dry (despite a few glorious snowflakes) inside. That night, we went to church. Yes, we celebrated Easter with our church family on Saturday night.

Unfortunately, our best picture of Audrey and Reid in their Easter outfits.

Easter: Village-style: searsucker blazer, blue linen shirt, faded jeans and Chucks.

My only Easter picture. Don't you like my outfit??

I must add that Easter wouldn't have been complete without the help of my friend Stephanie. She made these amazing egg-shaped petit fours that she graciously let me decorate. It was my first try so don't be too critical! Thanks, Steph, for a fabulous Wednesday!

Watch out, petit fours, here I come! (Isn't Stephanie's apron so cute??)

The finished product.

I promise I've got a "serious" blog coming. My heart has been so full lately that I've needed some time to sort it all out. Until then, this is what you get. Fun, though, huh??

I can't wait to hire you full time as my decorator!!! Wednesday sure was fun!!! I promise...this week I'll fast...well, maybe not from food but maybe from the COMPUTER (which at this point would most definitely be worse!).
Let me just say how stinkin' cute your babies looked for Easter. We went to church Saturday night and they had icing all over themselves from making petit fours...I had on jeans(yes, we were THAT family). No new Easter clothes for them (or me)...we were in TRUE Village style. It looked like Matt got a new shirt, though and was all fancy...better not have on a tie next year!!! I'm sure your dress was beautiful!!!

I was actually going to leave you a nasty comment about not updating, but much to my surprise, a fantastic update.
It's really weird looking at Audrey in those pictures. She looks like she grew up over night. It's pretty much FREAKING me out. Wow. She's beautiful. I think I might cry. OH me.

Your petit fours look great. It was such a strange weather weekend but it proved to be much fun.

I love that "pitchin tents"'s brought laughter to us many, many times, especially late at night after multiple viewings.

Love you!
