He is Risen!

Happy Resurrection Day!! We celebrate because He is Risen!! We had a very delightful day today! We met my parents and grandparents at church for the service then we all came back to our house for an Easter Brunch! Sarah and Brandon came over as well! I have to say the menu was pretty tasty!!

Fresh Strawberries and Mango
(Amazing) Homemade Cinnamon Coffee Cake -- Sarah did an awesome job! Plus she even made it Gluten free for Nate!
2 different egg/turkey sausage casseroles -- Mom and I both made kick butt dishes!!
Strawberry Pretzil Salad -- Sarah's favorite!
Peach Ice Cream Pie -- My new attempt at an easy dessert. Too bad I cooked the crust a little too long b/c it was like a brick!! Nate was teasing my grandpa and told him that I put a little cement in there!! :) We didn't want him to eat it b/c grandpa doesn't need another trip to the dentist for a broken tooth! Oh well, at least it tasted good!! I know for next time, 10 minutes is enough!! At least we can laugh about it!


I have to admit the Easter dress that my mom got for Sophia was a hit at church!! And with her mama!! I might be a bit biased, but she looked adorable in her dress. I even with all out with a little white sweater, white tights, and white leather shoes! She was just adorable!!

Sophia was looking at her daddy while mommy was snapping the picture!!! The tights were a tad bit big!! They almost looked like little pants!! :)

A little closer view of our princess!!! Isn't that hat so cute??? At least I didn't have anyone ask me if she was a girl or boy!! All of the cute older men at church had to come up and talk to her!! The grandma's did as well!! :)

Here is a picture of Sophia on Good Friday! I was making crazy faces at Sophia and Nate tried to get one on camera. Of course she ALWAYS smiles when we put the camera away!!! She still is pretty cute!!! Don't you just want to squeeze those cheeks!

We hope everyone had a WONDERFUL day with family and friends celebrating Christ's victory over death!!!

Allyson and Sophia
