Here we are!
I’m 3 days from delivering, Cade just turned 9, Claire is almost 6, Grace Mae is 5, and my husband is just plain handsome.
Trying to make the Holiday go smoothly with so much going on, we did things a bit differently this year.
I had baskets done and eggs stuffed a week before Easter (usually I am the kind of girl that waits until the night before).
The Bunny left a note inside the house explaining there were too many deer in the yard to hide eggs, but that their baskets were hidden and waiting out there somewhere for them – and that all their eggs were at Grandpa & Grandma Koop’s.
So the kids hurried outside Easter morning and found their loot.
Played with it all morning until it was time to get dressed and go over to Mom and Dad’s for the egg hunt.
This meant the weather was warm and they were all dressed up for pictures while they hunted.
Over at Mom and Dad’s, they found more baskets, adorable sugar cookies, and eggs galore hidden throughout their (LARGE) yard.
After all of that, they took the golf cart out for a spin or two and then we headed to Minerva’s for Easter Brunch (highly recommend!) to eat with Nana and Papa & Mom and Dad.
It was a gorgeous day and the rest of it was spent playing outside and then having everyone over to visit and drink wine.
Spent too much time on my feet, I think, because as the evening grew later, I started having pretty notable contractions.
They settled down about 1:30 this morning and I realize this baby is stubbornly (gets it from his father) staying put.
So now we’re down to 2 days before Baby J arrives and I’m just wanting to get these pictures posted before I drop off for awhile.
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, too.
