a lovely easter

So, I decided to take one more day off after all the lovely/hectic activities of the weekend (and totally cleaned out my craft room...  my idea of a relaxing day), but now I am back with lots to share.  For today I will just leave you with a few snippets of my weekend, but stay tuned for a little how-to of the above sailboats (which all the kids made on Sunday) and the below garden boxes (my Easter gifts to all the families).  

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday, beginning the day with Mass and then having all the grandkids over (except our Chicago Burches, who we missed terribly!) for an exceptional feast, egg hunt and swimming.  It was a beautiful day and I felt so very blessed to be surrounded by so much family!  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

We grilled paninis, had homemade waffles, fruit salad, cinnamon rolls, orange rolls, salad and more.
Needless to say, we were all quite stuffed by the afternoon.

Found these tough guys in my backyard...

and these goofy ones...

Some of the eggs this year were confetti eggs, which the kids had so much fun breaking over each others heads.  Ruby loved it so much that when she ran out of confetti eggs, she tried to break hard boiled eggs over people's heads...

Oh, and as we were all lying around the grass playing games and relaxing, a little visitor decided to try and slither his way into our festivities...  yikes!

And the perfect end to such a wonderful day...

Happy Tuesday!

Everything (except for the snake of course) looks gorgeous. I love seeing what crafts you come up with for your little ones. I bet they love spending time with you. Your Easter garden boxes are precious!
