Easter Weekend

We had such a fun Easter Weekend. Before hand, I tried to explain what Easter was really about to Michael.  We read his Easter book, and I'm hoping he was able to grasp some of it. We don't do Easter baskets or Easter Bunny at our house, so I know that he won't get too confused about what Easter is really all about.

Friday evening, we went to the Wolff's house, because Aunt Amy was coming into town, and Terry and Diane were also going to be there. We had a great dinner, and I made this cake for dessert. It was YUMMY!!

Saturday, we played around the house all morning, and then dyed Easter Eggs.


Michael had fun seeing what color all of the eggs turned. But was happy with the 5 we did, and didn't seem to care about doing more. Which was fine by me.

Saturday evening, we went back to the Wolff's house for and Easter Egg hunt and dinner for Jim's Birthday.

Then we went to church for the Saturday evening worship service. This was the first time Fellowship Greenville offered a Saturday night service. I really enjoyed it. But Andrew said he had a hard time staying awake.

Since we went to church on Saturday, we were able to sleep in and play around the house on Sunday. It was so nice to not have to hurry to get anywhere.



In the afternoon, we went over to my parents house for Easter Egg hunt and dinner.

With all those kids, it was fun to watch them look for eggs.


Mom and Dad set up a special egg hunt just for Elise and Michael in the front yard, since they are the smallest.

Chair Transformation

I found these two chairs on the side of the road last week and decided to stop and pick them up. I NEVER do that, but Andrew and I were just talking about how we wish we had more chairs on our deck. They were in great condition, aside from how they looked. 

Well, I washed them off really well, and spray painted them, and now they look good as new! Not to shabby for a $2 can of spray paint!

My Grandma

This past Sunday, my Grandma went to heaven. Almost two years after my Papa passed away.


She was not well, and we had been expecting it for a while now. It doesn't make it any easier, but we were prepared. I was not able to fly to California for the funeral, but my parents went, and it looks like it was a wonderful memorial for a wonderful woman.

I only ever saw my Grandma a handful of times.

That's what happens when you live on the other side of the country from each other.

She did meet Michael one time, when he was just two weeks old. She flew from California to South Carolina to spend a week with my parents, and it just happened to coincide with us bringing Michael home!

She was the sweetest lady, and a wonderful Grandmother. We will miss you so much Grandma.

#wolffpicaday2014 - week 3

I know that week three was last week, but here are the pictures from my #wolffpicaday2014 from week 3

Day 14 - Started a new Bible reading plan on Sunday. So far so good! Last year I did not do so good. Hoping this one goes better. 

Day 15 - I told Michael that he could skip his nap today, since we were out running around and wouldn't be home at normal nap time. He was so excited about not taking a nap. But 10 minutes into the car ride, this is what I see in the backseat!

Day 16 - Was feeling brave today and took three little boys to chick-fil-a for story time. It was a success!

Day 17 - Michael and Mimi looking at his scrapbook.

Day 18 - Michael and Zoe watching Monsters Inc. at Grandma's house. 

Day 19 - @manscout_99 walking along highway 14 picking up papers that flew out of my bible when he left them on the roof of the car and drove off. No Bible was found though. Hoping someone picked it up and brought it back to church. Thankfully, someone found Andrew's!

Day 20 - We all enjoyed the beautiful weather today!

Day 20 (2) - because sometimes you just want some 'nana pudding.

So, here are September through the end of December! (I know the pictures are not that great. I just snapped them really quick with my phone, and tried to avoid getting a glare from the overhead light.)

It is a wonderful feeling knowing that all of my scrapbooks are up to date! Now I can focus on my plan for my Hawaii album! More on that later.

#wolffpicaday2014 - Week 2

I have managed to keep this up for two weeks now! Here are my pictures from this past week.

Day 8 - Michael asked this morning if we could make muffins. So we went to the store and he picked the chocolate ones. A boy after my own heart!

Day 9 - Eating popcorn and watching Chuck on Netflix. This is what we do after Michael goes to bed.

Day 10 - Found some new stamps today at the mighty dollar, but apparently it is more fun to stamp your fingers! Silly boy! 

Day 11 - Starting a new book, then going to bed. It's been a great lazy, rainy day.

Day 12 - Snuggles with my boy while he watches a little Thomas the Train.

Day 13 - Trying to teach this boy his ABC's, but he has zero interest. So today, I involved M&MS and he seemed a little more excited to learn them.

Day 13 (2) - Thankful for the nice weather today. Found a great place for Michael to ride his bike! And I get a little exercise too. Win win.
