Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
It looks like the Easter bunny stopped by our house last night! haha! I like to give the kids some goodies every Easter even though they are all grown up!
We hosted Easter dinner this year for our families. Thankfully, we got the carpet mess from yesterday all cleaned up and are ready to have a lovely Easter dinner after church services. I cooked a big ham in the oven to serve.
Also, my husband, Eric smoked a wonderful prime rib!
I love this man!

He's such a nice man!
We had a nice meal!
Our dining room is not very big, so we all had to spread out throughout the house.
I love family times like this!

After dinner we all went into the living room to talk.
It was really fun. Both sets of grandparents shared their love stories and how they met. It was such a sweet and loving time.
The parties over. Eric's helping my mama get to the car. Family times are just so precious. We are truly blessed.
