Easter

We had a great Easter with my side of the family.  We switched it up this year and went out for brunch instead of my mom & dad having everyone over to their house and hosting the epic egg hunt.  Andy & Shristi had their new baby last week, so it wasn't the greatest time for them to travel.  New baby boy Liercen joins Zaladet (5), Tevlen (3), and Voeden (1).  Mace now has four cousins!  Here is the new party of six when Liercen was only a few hours old.

Now Mace is not the baby of the family.....and poor Zaladet is stuck with a whole bunch of boys!  My parents can hardly believe that over the last five and a half years they have become grandparents five times.  So great for us all to be together, but I am definitely looking forward to next Easter when we can all be at my mom & dad's house again and the kids can all get into hunting for eggs!






Easter of course was another reminder that Rob's mom is not here.  We are getting better at making holidays more about memories and less about grief.  Mace looked sharp for Easter in one of Rob's baby sweaters that Julie saved :))

  3. FOUR kids under 6?! You must have saints for family members.
    That sweater on Mace is downright adorable. How awesome that Rob's mom saved it; talk about many memories being created and passed along.

  4. Aww, how sweet that Mace got to wear daddy's sweater! SO cute! It must be a wonderful blessing to have so many cousins for Mace to play with!

  5. That sweater is so cute! We also opted for brunch on Easter Sunday. It was so much easier than figuring out who would host Easter at their house. I think it might be a new tradition for us :)
