Birthday and Easter Gathering

We combined Chess's family birthday party with her cousin, Will's.  And we had a big Easter dinner at the same time.  April is just so busy, we wanted to combine a few things so we could still have a free weekend or two this month.

Chess and the cakes

These are my table decor.  I used egg shells and tried to plant wheat grass in them, but they didn't sprout.  So, I cut some flowers from my azalea bushes and stuck them in there instead.  Jared bent some wire to use as holders.

Finding some eggs

"Show me your egg, Lera."

The special eggs from Nan-Naw and Paw-Paw were filled with dollar bills!

Opening presents - She was so sweet and patient while Will was opening his presents.  And she was so excited when it came time to open hers.


Playing with some of her presents

Lera is making sure they don't get wet while coloring.

Thank you everyone for bringing delicious food for our feast and for the generous presents!  We had a great time together!
