Easter Recap

April 6, 2015 at 5:36 AM 6 comments

I’ll tell you, we almost threw in the towel at the eleventh hour on hosting Easter.  When we found out it was going to be raining on Easter, we were super bummed.  Ever since we moved in last May, we couldn’t wait to host Easter under the Wisteria in our backyard.  Emphasis – backyard. In fact, just two days before Easter the garden seemed to taunt me in all it’s best colors with the sun blazing down…


The outdoor table that Graham built fits 13 people.  But none of us 13 people wanted to eat lunch in the rain.  Our dining room table easily sits six and you can squeeze in 8.  So we just had to make it work…


Good thing I have quite the collection of chairs over the years.

And if we couldn’t have lunch out in the garden, well then I was determined to bring the garden indoors, dammit.

I went hog wild at the floral shop and our house smells heavenly at the moment.  Don’t you wish your home could always be filled with fresh flowers?



I’m so happy that we didn’t pass on the baton and skip out of hosting.  It worked wonderfully to host it indoors.  There is nothing like family to make them all happily cram in together.


The kids braved the rain and went outside to check out what the Easter bunny left behind.


The Easter bunny also had baskets with goodies for the girls to dive into as soon as they woke up.


I relished the opportunity to put my sweet girls into dresses.



Graham and I attempted to get shots with ourselves with the girls, which is always a process.




In the end, the sun did come out to greet the late afternoon and all the cousins got to run around outside together.  Rain or shine, it was a glorious day spent with those we love so dearly.


I hope that your weekend was equally as bright.
