Unwrapping the Gift of Family

This weekend we spent time with both my family and my husband's family. We laughed until we cried, we chatted about the anticipation of new life and we spent hours outside enjoying a sunny Easter day.

My husband and I have visited a lot lately about being away from our family. It gets harder every time to leave. I asked him why it seems like I see so much nostalgia in everything lately. He told me I am just getting old. :-)

Today I am unwrapping the amazing gift of family. People that accept us with all of our flaws and failures. I am sharing a few of my favorite pictures from Easter.

My beautiful girls on our way to church Easter morning.

Getting ready to find their Easter eggs. They tried to be patient inside the house waiting for the eggs to be hidden.

Grandma and Great-Grandpa enjoying the day.

Cousins, trying to be sneaky and eat just one more piece of candy.

Grandpa giving rides on the four-wheeler. Another Easter full of memories.

I am joining Emily over at Chatting at the Sky for Tuesdays Unwrapped where we come together to celebrate the small gifts that we receive every day.

Your girls are beautiful. Glad you were able to enjoy family time. I know it must be hard to live away from family.

i felt the same way this weekend ... in the hustle and bustle, we often forget how blessed we are to be surrounded by family.
