Last year, we spent Matthew's first Easter in California on a baseball trip. This year, we were very excited to be able to introduce Matthew to some of our Easter traditions, celebrating with our families, and reflecting on our risen Savior!
Here are some highlights of our weekend (sorry for the picture overload!)
We celebrated Easter with my parents and Bami on Saturday morning. Matthew was greeted with some fun goodies from his Grammy and Grandpa. He loves to read his books and play with the balloon...we can't wait for the weather to finally get sunny so he can play with his bubble machine!
spoiled loved little boy he is!
Our growing family!
I feel so blessed to be a mommy of (almost) 2, and to be married to such a wonderful man.

I was supposed to work on Saturday night, but I got a call that evening asking if I wanted time off, because the hospital was overstaffed. Since I only work 7 days a month,
my husband never lets me take time off, I usually don't take the time off, but this time was the exception! I got to enjoy an extra night at home with my hubby, and I wasn't miserable and exhausted on Sunday from working all night!
Easter morning Matthew woke to some goodies from the easter bunny, aka: mom and dad!
Matthew's favorite part was the few jelly beans he got to snack on at 8:00am!
I can't believe how grown up Matthew seems these days. He has changed into a little boy so quickly!
Loving every moment with him!
Maybe I'm biased, but seriously, how adorable is this kid??
Matthew loves his cousins!
Easter egg hunt at Aunt Linda's. There were about 17 kids....one big, growing family!
Matthew picked up about 5 eggs before he decided it was time to open them up and find the goodies inside!

Matthew was busy playing, and wasn't too thrilled about having to pose for a picture with Papa and Grandma....oh the life of a 13 month old! We love you Papa and Grandma!

I absolutely love my sister-in-laws! So thankful they are not only family, but some of my very best friends.
