Easter and Birthdays!

A little gallery of Easter fun!!!!

I still do Easter baskets, but not every year. Last year I was very lazy and left them in the garage! Had to do something this year!!!

Ashleigh came home for the day and went to our old church. Brian,Tyler and I went to CTK. Lovely service! What a joy to celebrate the risen Lord!!
We went to the Burkes for dinner. Lynda always sets such a pretty table! We were joined by her brother and family and her SIL's sister. Lot's of fun! I don't know what he's so happy about...we were not getting along at home!! He is so cute though and my how tall he's gotten!!! Love that little lamb!

Lynda bought a 22 lb ham.....BIG!!! I cooked it at my house and brought it over. I hope my hair isn't touching it!!

After dinner we played a few games. 14 random questions that we had to answer about ourselves and then others had to read and guess who it was. Found out a few things about some people that I never would have guessed!!!
After that we played an Ashleigh/college game. One person writes a sentence, passes it on and that person has to draw a picture representing the sentence. The first sentence is folded over, passed on and the next person has to write a sentence based on the picture! It's pretty fun to hear how different the two sentences can be!!

We also celebrated Brian's birthday. Happy 48th sweetie!!!!

Tyler and Keaton played a little one on one and later all the guys played basketball, baseball, Frisbee and did a little long boarding.

The girls cleaned up, sat on the couch and watched Martha Stewart bloopers. Hilarious! Maybe you had to be there!!!

In honor of B's birthday, Amsa did a little make-over on Brian...his hair anyway! Now before you go thinking what a sport he is, which he is, but... He loves having his hair combed, head rubbed, etc. so he was actually quite enjoying this. I did leave out the picture with the barrettes though!!!!

We had such a great time with these dear friends!!
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter also!!


  1. It is so great when you have a home full of family and friends..great pictures you r a walton

  2. It sounds like you had a wonderful time!!! I just love all these pictures. We had fun, too. But I wish we would have played games like you listed off. I love the 14 random questions thing, I may need to do that sometime.

    In case you don't make it back to my blog today, no one was hurt in the fire, thank God.

  3. What a great holiday. Your family is lovely...and I can definitely see they get their beauty from their Momma.

    I have to admit I don't think I've ever actually seen a 22 pound ham.

    And wow, don't you have lovely glossy hair...lucky you!

  4. Holly,
    Looks as though you had a great day! It is wonderful how your teenagers will at least smile with you when your with friends. I remember the days when I could do nothing right. We have a lot of birthdays this month. Three grandchildren an my hubs. It is going to be a busy one. Love that you come and visit me so often. It is to bad we live so far away because I would love to go shopping with you!

  5. Love Easter!

    The pic of you and Tyler is adorable!

    Happy Birthday to Brian! Yikes! I figured him to maybe be 38. Seriously.

    Lynda wins the BAH prize, for sure. It
    looks like a fun day.

  6. Holly, that is a HUGE HAM!!! ;) It looks so yummy & juicy!

    Looks like ya'll had a wonderful time together with fun games!!

    I can't wait, I'm so excited for June & I'm in for May too! ;)

  7. Thought I'd tell you that our Costco had a TON of peach pies this evening. Blew me away. I ended up getting the Strawberry Cheesecake to serve for a friend's b-day. I am currently taste testing it because you know how unreliable Costco desserts can be. :) I'm really doing my friends a favor by making sure this thing is safe to eat.

  8. Sounds like the perfect day!!! :) . . . liz

  9. I did a half a ham and we have tons of leftovers - you guys didn't polish that thing off did you?
    Tyler is such a cutie - and yes, tall.
    We did puzzles instead of games - I enjoy piling around the table and chatting while we assemble.
    Thanks for sharing your day!

  10. I just heard about the show this weekend in Spangle. I've never been. Sounds like fun. I probably won't make it, it's already looking to be a busy weekend. Let me know if you go, would love to hear about it.

    Remind me again, when you come in June who are the ladies you're coming with? And where are you staying?

  11. The Easter Setting on Linda's table is cute! It was fun to run into you at 2nd chance! (haven't posted the photo yet) Hey, if you and Linda and Terry want to do something fun - we should do a Pie Party #2. Something to think about!
