Happy Easter!

We started Easter morning with Easter baskets and an egg hunt. Ella was so excited. We then had a breakfast of "Basil Breakfast Strata" which I prepared the night before and baked that morning. Then it was off to church where we saw many friends and neighbors. From there we went to Meme and Poppy's house for Easter dinner. As always, there was more food then we could eat! Everything was delicious, Mom. My sister hung "Wen's" picture on the china closet so he could "join us" for dinner! He was present in our thoughts and hearts. Ella spontaneously talked about her little brother all day. At one point we were all sitting around the dinner table talking about something completely different when Ella turns to Brianna and says "my yittle brofer has no Mom and Dad, we have to be his brother and sister". It is just so adorable how he is always on her mind. Next year he'll have a seat at the dinner table right next to his big sister.

We pose for a family photo

Ella didn't already have enough chocolate and sugar, so Gram had to give her a very big lollipop!
