Because He Lives

Easter has always been one of my three favorite holidays.  I love Christmas and Thanksgiving, but I LOVE what Easter is all about.  It means so much to me that I have a Savior that died for us and rose on the 3rd day to be a LIVING savior!  This morning, like any good Southern Baptist girl, I was singing Because He Lives in my head at 7:30 while getting ready for Easter services.  There is no better song to have stuck in your head on Easter!
I felt like there was a really thin line this year on how I dressed my little Southern Boy.  Given the fact that he  is the size of a three year old and has a head full of hair, it looks too old for smocking and shortalls, so I decided to go with the next step of a seersucker suit.  I'm a sucker for a man in seersucker and I DIED at the cuteness of these two sporting there seersucker this morning...

Seriously, I DIE!
 I had a wardrobe malfunction in that my dress from last year (that I love and wanted to wear again this year) had a huge black stain on it.  I pieced this together at the last minute.
The Easter Bunny also came last night! He brought some Fruties, fruit snacks, bubble bath, foam soap, and even a Car's ice pack (yes, I'm a crazy trauma nurse!). 

 My family came over at 2:00 for lunch of ham, pineapple au gratin, potato casserole, deviled eggs, green beans, squash, and even a pink lemonade cake from pinterest!  After lunch, my cousin Lindsey hid eggs for Nicholas and helped him find them.  He loved hunting eggs!

 We all went outside and enjoyed the patio and warm weather.  I am so blessed with an awesome husband and family.
Nana came with my parents.  We can tell a huge difference in her since she has gone to live at her new home. It was wonderful to spend another Easter with her!
 I wasn't blessed with sisters, but I was given two cousins that are close to me.  Lindsey is 5 years younger and Katie is 8 years younger than I am (and we are told a lot that we look alike).

 I just had to show you my centerpiece.  I realized at 1:00 that I forgot to buy flowers for the table, so I ran out to the shrub bed we redid last week and picked a few roses!  It's been a miracle that they have lived for an entire week!  Usually flowers come to my house to die.
Hope everyone had an equally as fabulous Easter as we did!
