i am just finally getting around to posting about easter morning...don't judge. it was our first easter in our new house and now that i am a million miles away, looking at these photos is making me homesick for that place. we are guilty of watching the security cameras in our house way more than we should ever admit. we love our house.
but easter! easter was great. our sleepy-head ava girl slept in so late that we finally had to go wake her up. the easter bunny really spoiled our girl and set up a little trail of goodies to her basket. she was (and still is, actually) most enthused with some wiggly toy bugs and snakes that the easter bunny brought her. she loves snakes and she loves to pretend to squish bugs with spatulas...she's definitely not lacking in creativity and spunk, my girl!
after ava opened her easter basket, we headed over to my in-laws and had brunch and watched some conference and played games with our friends charlie and samantha and their little girl london. the girls had a little easter egg hunt and i ate way too much food (as i tend to do on holidays) but i made homemade rolls for the special occasion and homemade rolls are just about heaven on earth.
lately i've been slacking on documenting our family and our lives and i'm going to try to be better at it. it all just goes so fast. i swear we were just out here last summer, or the year before that, and then now ava is two and a half and i'm still trying to wrap my head around that while capturing it with my camera. life is fast. but it's really really good. you know, i have my rough days where i feel like my thighs are too thick or i miss my house or ava throws a fit because i made her wash her blankie, but i've been through enough shit in my life to know how petty those little problems are. we've got it pretty good, toddler tantrums and all. and i'm really thankful for that perspective and for a man who stands by my side through everything life throws at us. he is beyond good and most days i really don't deserve him, but i'm keeping him and pretty pumped that he chose me to be his forever. being your favorite person on earth's forever is the freaking best thing in the world.
