This time Bo got her own string too…
…which resulted in much glee from the girls…Bo being one of them. She was so excited about that yarn she could hardly stand it and kept getting tangled up in everyone else’s until we had to just hold her. Ha!
Everyone was pretty excited to find those baskets.
This is the best pic. we got of Bo Jangles with hers:
…she was much too excited to go play with her stuffed animal lamb chop and dental bone.
We don’t have church until noon so we got to spend the morning finishing up our Holy Week scriptures and talking through each of these symbols:
We also watched the videos I posted yesterday back HERE. Oh man I adore those.
Followed by eggs Benedict…which was pretty dang exciting because Grace and I got the Hollandaise sauce perfect for the first time ever without my mom’s help:
(See how Dave had our little breakfast sandwich maker ready just in case we had a sauce fail…he’s a prepared guy but luckily we didn’t need it and we were pretty happy about Easter brunch.)
We even had happy helpers to clean up before we headed out to church.
…and took some speedy quick pics on our way out the door.
(Claire’s hair was inspired by Elle’s hair in her Easter video she made way back when. We were missing her watching her old videos this week. They are HERE and the Easter one is HERE, Elle make more of those!)
We got Bo Jangled decked out for just a minute. You can tell by these faces just how they both felt about that:
“Get that thing off!”
“There, much better.”
We enjoy that puppy…most of the time.
How I love her heart.
Church was followed by our traditional gathering and dinner at my sis-in-law’s house.
(Dave was directing the veggie portions up there 🙂
Love all those people.
Lucy wasn’t messing around on that I tell you.
One egg was here:
Check out the glee on the faces of these grandkids on the right in the front row.
Love those cousins with all my heart.
They celebrated by listening to one of these great girls give an awesome Easter talk in church (Elle recorded it and sent it to us), and colored their own Easter eggs last night.
And here’s all we got from Max, in some Internet cafe with his brand new companion off in a tiny little rural town in Taiwan that he moved to last week.
I love that your brother is included in your in-law family gatherings. I've noticed that before and it always warms my heart. It would be easy not to include him, but that your husbands family does says a lot about them. ❤️
I love it too, they are the best.
I've always noticed this too & think it's lovely.
I also love how Shawni includes Josh in her family get-togethers etc.
What a wondeful time. I agree it's so lovely to see Josh in all family activities.
I hope Grace knows how absolutely stunning she is, Claires smile is precious and Lucy is such a cutie pie.
Love your shoes!! Where are they from?
Thank you! I found them for a deal at Nordstrom Rack. The brand is Eileen Fisher, and they are super comfortable.
I love your shoes! And graces too! Would you share the brand?
Grace's are from Forever 21 a few years ago.
Hi! Happy easter !!!
Where did you get the hallelujah banner?
That banner is from this etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/270828809/31-piece-easter-advent-kit-for-holy-week?ref=shop_home_feat_2
Lots of good things in that packet!
Another request for info on your shoes!!!! Darling.
Happy Easter to y'all.
Your girls look especially lovely in these pictures. I love the Easter Dresses, special hair, and bright smiles. Grace's boho look is especially on point; what a great look for her!
Everyone looks darling! Easter Sunday is the best! I to noticed your shoes and loved them, please let us in on where you got them!
How do you do Lucy's hair in the socks and get those beautiful waves?
I did a little hair-sock-tutorial back here: https://71toes.com/2014/03/friday-q-hair-and-how-we-do-it.html
Hope that helps!
Thank you for all the kind comments!
So glad your Easter was beautiful, there's something about the long weekend that makes me incredibly reflective and joyous.
would you mind sharing resource for Claire's sandals? They would be perfect for my daughter. Thank-you!
They were from Old Navy last year.
What a beautiful family…good …loving energy. (Love the pics of your Bo…yes.. puppies are demanding and all over the place…dogs are such wonderful teachers of unconditional love. They just love us…even after we get upset with them….when they realize we are "over it"…they are back to total love for us.)
I used to read your blog… long ago!!! Just thought I'd check back in to see your beautiful family. And I've just seen your son is on his mission in Taiwan. My sister lives in Taichung. I hope he is doing well there. It is such a lovely place. I have visited twice.
Beautiful post! Would you be willing to tell me where you got your kitchen table and chairs? And what size it is? I've looked everywhere for a large round one and am having no luck. Thank you!!!
