Over the weekend I went with my family to go for Easter lunch at my Nana’s place. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we had a blast hanging outside together. Here are a few snapshots from the festivities.
All the female cousins (minus me). I like to lovingly refer to my sister as the “Black Sheep”, aa she is the only cousin on that side of our family who has dark hair.
My Great Aunt Irene and my Grandfather were on hand for some Easter ham with all the fixings. I bet they’re glad that they didn’t go to Florida this Spring when its been even nicer here.
The centerpieces that I explained yesterday. Hard to believe that they cost less than $4 each to make.
My cousin Betty brought these amazing tea biscuits. It was a fight to see who got to take home the leftovers and there wasn’t many left after we’d plowed our way through four tins.
I was just happy to finally get to taste one of the Carrot Cake Cupcakes that I had struggled with the day before (see yesterday’s post for complete story. It was bad.)
Little C loved the muffins too. She ate the tops off with all the cream cheese icing. That a girl!
Christy opening some Easter goodies. She was rocking the old school Pez despenser all day. I forgot how awesome those things are.
I love this whole outfit on my cousin. The flowery dress, subtle gold necklace and the rocking hot pink shades.
And her hair. I’ve always loved her hair. When we were kids she always had the most amazingly angelic halo of curls around her head. I had tangled floppy straight hair. I was jealous to say the least.
Donning his Armani sunglasses, my big cousin took to impersonating the Easter Bunny and hiding small foil eggs all around the porch for Little C to go looking for. It was so cute to see her running along with a little basket hunting for the little eggs.
Whiskey and Shadow had a good romp around the tennis courts while we were there. It was nice to be able to just open the doors and let them go without worrying about them wandering off. However, Shadow did quickly learn that it was a bad idea to run across the pool cover. Lets just say that her belly had a bit of a bath.
I think Whiskey was just happy to be outside without shivering his butt off.
My Nana was dogsitting for a friend this weekend, so the pooch got to come along for the afternoon as well. This dog just sat there watching the other dogs play as he perfected his “sad face”.
