Celebration

Yesterday was a day of great excitement and celebration. Yes, you guessed it ... Abe's first day in the nursery!!! For those who don't know, at our church you have a 3 hour meeting, divided into 3 blocks. Once you are 18 months old they have a special class you can attend for the second 2 blocks of time. He did awesome (didn't miss us at all) and Ken and I both thoroughly enjoyed our time in our classes. What a big boy! Don't they look handsome in their matching suits and ties?Not to diminish the real reason for celebration yesterday, our Savior's Resurrection. I always love to have a day to remember what that truly means for us and how fortunate we are to know our Savior and to have His Gospel in our lives.

We also were able to have Charlotte and her family and Tami and her family with us for the day. We did an Easter Egg hunt and then had dinner and played. It was fun to be with family and especially to see the Laters, it has been about a year since we were last with them.

We actually didn't get Abe much candy, just a few Tootsie Rolls. This morning I found him eating one, wrapper and all. Oops. We filled his basket with matchbox cars instead, which he loves. His cousins were gracious enough to share lots of candy with him though. Since I'm sure not everyone wants to see a million pictures of Abe wandering around our backyard, I'm not offended if you don't look at the slideshow. I just know that Grandmas and Grandpas like to see all the pictures! (by the way, aren't his new sandals adorable manly?)

Into nursery with 52 days before the new baby is set to arrive...enjoy every Sunday of it! That's always a great feeling - especially when they are happy to go into nursery! Good times.

Not enough pictures. I wish I could have been there to celebrate Easter with everyone else. Looks like a great day.

Charlotte said...

Every good Mormon mother knows her kids' 1/2 birthday (from looking forward to nursery for so long!). Thanks for making sure there were no photos of me in the pictures. I was dreading that in the slide show. He was cute with those eggs and cars!

I didn't know Charlotte was coming down. Glad you had fun.

It was really good to see you in NC.

Were you sad that he didn't miss you at all? I think I would want my child to cry, at least for a few minutes after I left him all alone in nursery.

What a sweet heart! Love the pictures with Ken. So jealous about nursery.

I love having family over for the holidays...and class is soooo much better once they go to nursery! I know that now that I'm not the nursery leader anymore, not that I wouldn't go back if they would let me!

Yay for nursery! I love how Abe matches his daddy! I can't wait to buy matching ties.
