A Day in my Life

I hope you all had a nice Easter!  I didn't have to work and we enjoyed our day.  Here's some pictures of what we did.


 We started with a wonderful service at church.  Our service was done shortly before noon and we headed to Laura and Aaron's house where we were invited for dinner.
The sky is blue and the sun is shining, but it was very cold!  (And snow is predicted this week!)



 Here's our girlies, peaking out the window and waiting for dinner.



Laura had a beautiful table set...


 with flowers...



and these pretty placemats that she made.


 Even the dog was dressed for the occasion!



 We had brought a little Easter bag for the girls and they had fun opening it after dinner.



Here they are, playing with one of the little toys inside.


 Then it was time for an egg hunt.  Here's Ruby finding an egg.


 She had a hard time running around, holding her dress and that basket!



 Happy girls!



And what fun to see what was in the eggs!

It was a very nice afternoon.  We went home and just relaxed for the rest of the day.

Easter was the main focus of the day, but it was also April Fools Day.  Laura said Alaina had been quite excited about that, so she pranked both girls in the morning.  She put cereal and milk in their bowls with a spoon and froze it.  Then in the morning, she and Aaron were telling them that they needed to hurry and eat so they could get ready for church. Both girls were saying that they couldn't get their spoon out!  Alaina thought it was quite funny when she was telling us about it.

The girls look so pretty and I love their hair styles. Those placemats are beautiful. So thankful you were off work and could enjoy time with family and a little relaxation. That's a cute April Fool Joke!

LOL about the frozen cereal! That was quite inventive! Those two girls are so adorable and their Easter dresses are beautiful. It sounds like such a joyful Easter celebration!!

Laura said...

It was such a nice time together! So glad you didn't have to work and could come.

I didn't actually dress Remie just for you though - she always wears a sweater because she shivers if it's not on - lol!

I love Laura's prank. I'd love to see pictures of that! And her table was indeed so beautiful. I love the girls' dresses and the dog's matching outfit. That dog looks like he'd just as soon be elsewhere, haahaa xoxo

Alaina and Ruby look so pretty in their long Easter dresses and their beautiful hair styles. What a great prank to pull on the girls. It was so nice that you had the day off and Laura cooked the meal.

I am so glad you didn't have to work on Easter Sunday. It looks as if you had a lovely time at your daughter's. The girls look so pretty in their dresses. Love the way their hair is fixed. It looks as if they had fun hunting their Easter eggs. :-)

Glad you had such a lovely Easter. We went to church in Phoenix and it was an amazing service.

Btw I have a vibe that Ruby will be ditching that dress as soon as she can, she comes across as a little tomboy to me. :D
