Easter!

I hope you all had a good Easter.  It was a beautiful day here, fairly warm and pretty sunny.  I had the day off and very much enjoyed going to the Easter service at our church.  We had a quiet afternoon, then Aaron and Laura, with Alaina and Ruby, and Andrew and Heather came by later in the evening.


Here's Ruby and Alaina in the matching dresses Laura made for them.  Ruby is looking sad because she wanted to run off and play, so we had Alaina hold on to her.

We made some pizza for supper, and Ruby was enjoying it, but also peaking around her chair.


Alaina loves to build towers!


Here they are checking out what's in the Easter basket we had for them.


They thought this little pig was fun. You put a ball in his snout, and when you squeeze him it pops out.


 And they always enjoy time with Grandpa - and he enjoys time with them even more!

What a special time you all shared. The girls look precious in their matching dresses. Their mom is talented. Not all of your photos in this post are showing up on my laptop; I'll check back later to see their Easter baskets.

Awwwwwwwwww, adorable dresses for sure.

I would even have fun with the pig. [especially teasing the cats with it. I have an ornery streak like that] LOL

And my favorite photo today? The last one...with Grandpa. Sweet times and wonderful memories for the girls.

Those grand girls are just precious. That Ruby just makes me smile. I am sure she keeps you on your toes and it is a good thing she has a competent big sis to keep tabs on her!! Cute dresses too. Not many moms make Easter apparel any more.

Those girls are so adorable and their matching Easter dresses are perfect! That little Ruby is a mess, isn't she?! It's so fun to see how different the girls are. Alaina is quieter and Ruby is so rambunctious!! She seems to want to be moving all the time, and probably only stops when she falls asleep! So glad you had some fun family time for Easter (and that you had the day off!)!

Just had to let you know that I bought Jazmine a pig popper- and she loves playing fetch with the balls!! We have since lost the pig... but she still plays fetch with the remaining balls :):) LOL!!

Look at those sweet Gals in their adorable matching dresses!! Looks like a lovely Easter time. That Ruby still has such a "stinker" twinkle in her eyes. Lol

Such a beautiful family you've got there Lady. ;)

Awwww they looked so adorable. Alaina is so grown-up, I can't stand it. That Ruby is a pistol. xoxo

Oh, they are cuties! Love their matching dresses. My mom made my sister and I matching outfits on occasion too...and I loved building towers with blocks when I was Alaina's age! Glad you all had a great time together!

Kimberly Hoyt said...

What a lovely day! Can't get over how fast the girls are growing -- Alaina looks suddenly so much older!

Judy said...

Awe, how special the girls look in their new pretty dresses.

The girls looks so cute in the sweet little dresses Laura made. I'm glad it was a warm day for your Easter.

Mildred said...

Our internet is working fine today and I can see all the photos. They both are so sweet.

Have a nice weekend.
