Our Princess Wedding Tea Party

Gabby and I made hats yesterday to wear this morning while we watched a princess marry a prince.

Gabby was enthralled. She told her daddy on the phone that the princess wore a pretty, white dress.

Gabby loves all the Disney Princesses so it was very fun to show her a real princess and all the pretty things at the Royal Wedding!

Gabby helped Jack find his basket

I told Gabby that she was warmer and warmer…

010

I had to tell her over and over that the dryer was RED HOT and that she should look in it. She did not believe me. She said, “No, it can’t be in there.”

 011

I finally convinced her to look…

Steven found his before I could get the camera ready!

They were all very excited with their Easter baskets!

Steven got a Reading Level 1 Disney book that he can read all by himself. Gabby got the Sleepy Kittens book from the Despicable Me movie (see scene of book being read HERE, if you don’t know what I’m talking about)

After we ate our breakfast, the kids were getting restless so we took them out to the church playground until time for the service

The Super Cousins (defined HERE – it’s for real!)

After church, we went over to Grandpa’s house for a big Easter dinner and an Easter Egg Hunt. Our hunt was delayed by about 5 minutes by a bit of rain – but with the drought we’ve been in this year, we were thankful for it.

The Egg Hunt-delaying rain ended up being only the beginning. It stormed for several hours this evening. Thankfully, the hail didn’t start until I had my truck in the garage! The kids and I went and took these pictures early in the storm. By the time it was really bad, we were in the closet because of the tornado warnings. The hail actually got bigger and worse than these pictures show.

We had a wonderful day celebrating our Risen Savior!

The only thing that could have made today better is having Steve home…and maybe less roof-damage.
