Happy Easter

We went to Arlington for Hunter's first Easter (14 wks). What a joy to spend time with family! Hunter's Mimi and Papa love him more than words can say and cherish every second with our little man. We got to spend more time than usual down there this time so we were able to get it lots of quality time! Daddy was sick with a sinus infection so he isn't in many pictures.
Uncle Daniel got to spend lots of time with Mr. H. Hunter was asleep when Daniel came in. When he woke up, Mimi took him and sat down to Uncle Dan. As soon as Hunter saw him, that bottom lip popped out and here came the tears! Of course, we had to laugh about it. After Hunter ate and woke up a little, he was much nicer to Daniel. Hunter loves his uncles, even if he is a little scared at first! (Our child is not always naked! He has become a big time drooler and his shirts are always wet, so we were letting him air out a little. He's our little stud muffin!)Mimi sure does love Mr. H. Hunter spent a lot of time hanging out in the kitchen while Mimi cooked. We wish Hunter could spend more time with his Mimi and Papa. They are absolutely in love with our cutie pie. (Who isn't!) Mimi got to hold Hunter during the Easter service at church. You could see the pride on her face! He was so good and quiet! The lady behind us commented on how well behaved Hunter was (and also how handsome he was. I have to admit, he looked quite dapper in his plaid overalls!) I was so glad he decided not to talk in the middle of the service. He has become quite the chatter box in the last week. He tells all kinds of stories, especially if he isn't getting the attention he wants! He doesn't use his quiet voice either! Hunter watched his cousin Joshua hunt Easter eggs at Mimi and Papa's house. I can't imagine how much fun he will be this time next year when he can find his own eggs!

Hunter and I drove to Grapevine to meet Alysia, Becky, and Miss Jorja for lunch at Cracker Barrel. What a blessing to have lifelong friends! Poor Miss J had an ear infection so she wasn't feeling too hot. Sharing life with these girls is one of my joys. We missed Holly though! They are true girlfriends (snap!) I was so proud for them to meet my precious little guy. I love that we have been through so many stages together, from pre-teen camp to adulthood and now motherhood.

Hunter hopes your Easter was as blessed as his was. He also loves comments (so does his mommy!)

Praise the LORD! He is risen!!!

I must say that Hunter does look adorable in his Easter outfit! I wish I could have seen him in it.

oh he looks so handsome in his easter outfit. I LOVED seeing you and meeting Hunter. He was a doll. I hate that Jorja was in "rare form" while we were together. I know you don't believe it but she really is the happiest baby ever! :) Can't wait to get together again... hopefully this summer. I love that we have been through so much of life together. Here's to being the best of friends when our kids have kids. Love you!
