My Easter Table!!



Yesterday was Easter, and we had a wonderful family day. We all sat around the table and ate as my  three boys told stories reminiscing about days gone by. We laughed so hard my head hurt!!

Seeing the Great grandparents, Grandparents, Parents and children all sitting together at the table, eating, laughing and joking gives me such joy.
Before we ate we all stood around the table as my Hubby said the prayer and thanking God for sending his son to be our Saviour. What a blessed family I have and I am so thankful for that.

My DIL’s were looking beautiful in their pretty Easter outfits and it was so fun to hear them talking about the best schools for their children and extra curricular activities. All the subjects I remember talking about when I was their age. Of course we girls ended up talking about skin care and make-up !!!
Watching the Grandkids hunt for eggs in the backyard was the highlight of the day.

I promised pictures of my completed Easter table and I ran out of time to have them posted before today. I had so much fun putting this table together. In fact this is my all time favorite Easter table to date.
