 We had such a wonderful weekend celebrating the resurrection of our Lord! It was also  our first "official" Easter as a little family!

Nathan made bird's nest for our Easter dinner.

We also hosted Easter dinner at our home and had Tripp's parents over.  It was the first holiday meal we had ever cooked.  We made a wonderful bourbon glazed ham, I will have to share the recipe. (It's also in April's Southern Living).  
We had a wonderful Easter and we hope y'all did too!

Our Weekend

  Whew! What a busy weekend! Friday after I came out of school (I was subbing that day) I went out to the parking lot where I found out I had a flat! :( Thank goodness Tripp was in town picking up Nathan from his school so he could come rescue me! Unfortunately my spare was flat, so we had to go get air in it! We had had plans to make the two hour drive to my parent's house right after school, I wanted to get home so I could spend the last few hours of my birthday with my parents.  Needless to say I was a little stressed, not only was I stressed about getting to my parents on time, but I realized that I am now only 2 years from being 30 and I'm still unemployed. I was a blubbering mess! Ha! I then had to take a minute to remind myself that God has a plan for me and that everything will work out when it is supposed to!   Friday ended up being a great evening spent with my wonderful family!
  Saturday we decided to walk to town, to get a bite of terrible greasy goodness (our town's festival, was going on this weekend too!) 
  Today we had to hurry back home so Nathan could go to our church's Easter egg hunt! He had so much fun!

 Now Nathan is asleep, I'm trying to get us all ready for the upcoming week, and Tripp just came in from working outside. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful family.  My life may not be going the way I imagined it ten years ago, but when I really think about it, it's actually a million times better!

Hope y'all had a great weekend too! :)

Weekend Wrap Up

  This weekend really flew by.  We were super excited to have my brother come stay with us Saturday night, we hadn't seen him since he has been back from Italy and Germany! Nathan loved having his Uncle "Wii-A" up for the night!
Saturday night we took Wii-A out to eat, Nathan was more than happy to sit by him! :)

I really hate that this weekend seemed to fly by, but we were glad we all got to spend time together!
