Easter 2011

We had a fabulous Easter! The weather was absolutely yucky, and the non-stop rain made it impossible to straighten my naturally frizzy curly hair, so it has a little bit of funkiness going on in these photos. I still can't help but love these pictures of our little family of 3 though! Such a blessing. :)
We went to church with my family, then out to eat. We normally do a big Easter dinner at my parent's house, but decided to go the easy route this year and eat out because we're waiting on my little sister to go into labor - she was due Monday - and in the event she did, we'd be headed to Dallas. (longest sentence ever) She hasn't had the baby yet (whose gender is a SURPRISE!), so it should be any day now! I can't wait. :)

Anyway, here are a few pictures from lunch. I love this picture of Laci & Manny! She loves to take care of him, and already knows how to throw her momma hip out. :)

Looks like it's about time for someone to get a haircut!!

After lunch, we headed to my brother's house for an indoor Easter egg hunt. They just finished building their gorgeous new home, and I just had to show you the sink in their powder room. My sister-in-law has the best style and I think this is such a statement piece...love it!

Manny was pretty excited, probably just because all of his cousins were. :)

I had planned on giving Manny his Easter basket when we got home that evening, but thanks to severe weather we didn't get home until almost 10 pm! A trip that normally takes us about 2 hours 15 minutes ended up taking us nearly 6 hours by the time it was all said and done. We had to stop and hang out in a Wal-Mart for awhile, and when it was safe to get back on the road again we kept running into flooded roads and had to find detours. I was extremely thankful to make it home safely! This bad weather going on around the country right now just breaks my heart.

So since we got home so late, we put Manny to bed, and he got his Easter baskets on Monday morning.

Yes, I said baskets. The kid is spoiled...thanks so much for the adorable sock monkey basket Aunt Sue! It was perfect for him and he loved playing with it and all of the fun stuff in it...you are too sweet. :)

And because I'm that mom, of course I made the boy take some pictures in bunny ears. Or rather, I tried to make him. He was not going for it though. He left them on for one second when I let him play with my lens cap cover, but that's about it. I love the last picture...he looks victorious that he got them off...or perhaps just scared, wondering what his crazy mommy's up to now. :)
Well I know this has been the longest post ever, so if you're still here...thanks for reading! We had such a blessed Easter with our family, and are so thankful for our Savior!
