happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! We celebrated Easter with some snow (thanks, SE Idaho). Living close enough to walk to church makes you complacent about getting there early for Easter mass, so when we got there, it was standing room only. Fortunately, a nice man gave up his seat for this nursing mom so I wouldn't have to stand and nurse Andie in the cry-room. I'm just not that coordinated.After Mass, we loaded up the kiddos and drove to Pocatello, where mom-friend LeAnne had prepared a wonderful ham dinner for us. I ate like a Kaufman since I'm a breastfeeding mom. It was awesome. We had a great time visiting with Wiggly Papa (Jimmy) and her daughter, Rachel, while Sam raided all the toys at LeAnne's house.
Everyone took turns snuggling Andie, so she slept most of the time. LeAnne bought Andie her cute Easter dress, so I thought a picture of Andie with her benefactor was appropriate. Look at these adorable shoes. Unfortunately, Miss Chunky Monkey will probably only get to wear this cute dress one time since she is growing so fast.It was such a relaxing day, Joe even fell asleep during our afternoon. It's a blessing to have "family" away from home. We come, we eat, we don't do dishes, our kids play with their toys, we nap, and then we go home. What could be better?
