hippity hop

we had a wonderful Easter weekend, did y'all ??? i hope so!
husband's parents came in town to spend the holiday with us, we had a good time with them!

we did the Easter service at church, then came home to a fantastic meal of
-devilled eggs
-spinach salad with strawberries and walnuts (balsamic dressing)
-ginormous pork chops (literally y'all 3 inches thick, yum!)
-twice baked potatoes
-cream of asparagus soup (aunt carol's recipe-- amazing!)
-green bean bundles (drenched in red wine vinegar, so delicious)
-fresh rolls
and... Jennifer's gorgeous Easter cake!
its so fabulous, she did an excellent job making a carrot garden!

here are the rest of the pics!!!

i decorated the table with an assortment of greens and blues

i made place card holders out of plastic eggs and clothespins
and Jennifer brought her adorable green/blue floral napkins
 and bunny napkin rings-- how cute are those!?!

Drew's parents

our sweet friends Jonathan and Jennifer
(we spent Easter with them last year too!)

and what Easter would be complete without the family picture:
and a few additional pictures,

it was a cloudy day, but the sun was weirdly bright
hence the strained faces

my precious boys!

Coach and mommy!
I wish i would have gotten him a cute pastel collar for spring,
 but we are a bit limited in selection for his size collar. sigh!

and the post dressy clothes, more comfy picture

i hope each of you had a blessed Easter and were surrounded with good friends/family, good food, and a great reminder of how lucky we are to have a risen savior!!!
happy monday!
