Me, Nathan, and Paul when we first got to Paul’s grandparents’ house for some delicious food followed by some egg-hunting… all following a beautiful Easter service at our church. Of course, it can sometimes be incredibly difficult to convince a three-year-old to sit still for a picture, but we were finally able to get a decent one in the midst of some squirming.
Nathan helping his great-grandmother dye some eggs. He totally loved it! At first, I was slightly trepidatious about Nathan being around food dye, but it worked out well… He was surprisingly calm and managed not to make a huge mess. And he thought that it was super neat to dye eggs multiple colors.
He was so excited about carrying around the basket full of eggs. I’m pretty sure he thought he was Big Stuff, and I must say that I wholeheartedly agree. And doesn’t he look totally dapper in his Easter outfit? Paul’s grandmother gave us the jacket, and she’s pretty sure it used to be Paul’s. So of course I had to put Nathan in it for Easter.
Nathan’s having a nice little chat with Daddy. My two most favorite men in the whole wide world, right here, both looking as handsome as ever, and both making my heart swell to approximately the size of a football field. I don’t even know how my heart hasn’t exploded out of my chest yet.
After the festivities, the little guy was pretty tired. He had a big day and really enjoyed going to church, gorging on a delicious Easter meal, dying eggs, hunting them, and then running wild and free outside. Holidays are great around here, and I am super happy I get to spend them with my wonderful husband and child. I couldn’t ask for anything better!
Here they are, the Easter pictures I promised! Since I have so many, I’m doing them in two parts. The first part is the Easter Egg hunt with me helping Nathan find the eggs and Paul taking the pictures. (Since I am doing so great on my weight loss, I don’t mind having my picture taken anymore!)
Well I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We most certainly did. The day started off with a beautiful service at our church with our family, followed by a delicious Easter lunch made by Paul’s grandmother. Nathan, of course, went on an Easter Egg hunt, and that was a ton of fun. The only drawback was the humidity… it made the day seem so hot! We took some great pictures that I am working on right now, and I’ll have those posted within the next few days.
In other news, you wanna know what Nathan did today? Well, I was in the kitchen cleaning up when he came running in, shouting “Bwue! Bwue” (Blue! Blue!) for Blue’s Clues… I told him it wasn’t on the tv right now, and you know what he did? He handed me the remote control.
He’s rotten, I’m telling you.
