You know when you post a lot then there is a lot to comment on! First I thought I'd go with the "love the plates" kind of comment. And then I saw the lovely yard and then the children--oh, the children--looked like a zillion. And then the games and fun and pretty faces. You sure know how to throw a party. When's the next one? I'm going to rsvp right now! :)

Isn't it nice to live where you can have dinner outside on Easter. They had snow the Saturday before Easter in Idaho. Your Easter looked lovely and how lucky you are to have all those friends and family together.

That looked like a truly fabulous, fun filled day!! Such lovely photographs!! You have a beautiful garden too!!

Meri Wiley said...

Hi Jaime,

Looks like you had an awesome Easter, and my goodness so many photos!!! It's all good.

Hey I've been saving some of the pictures of your grandbaby, she's so adorable, and wanting to do a scrapbook layout of her. Do I have your permission? I'd photograph it and then you could have it, but some of your pictures are just perfect images and I'm feeling drawn to create something with her in it. I don't know when I'll get to it with everything going on right now, but I want to at least get your permission.


Krystal said...

Thanks you, thank you, thank you! You did such a good job with everything. What a fun party! I knew you would have it over the top, full of fun, and of course way cute! You are just good like that. It really was such a fun day. My family had such a good time and we appreciate all your love, hard work,and invite. YOu are so sweet and we are so blessed to have your friendship. I loved all the decor, food, and games. I must say those cupcakes were so adorable and yummy too!Nice job. It was a Happy Happy Easter for all of us. Thanks again!

Deanna said...

Dear Jamie, What a great get together. Your chickie treats look delicious.

I felt like I was right there hunting the Easter eggs! The kids are darling. I'm sure they had a fun time and made memories that they will cherish.

You do have some really cute pics with the real chicks!!!

God bless,

Meri Wiley said...

Hi Jaime,

I only want to do one layout page, not a whole book or anything, so let me know what your daughter says. I just love the images from about one or two posts back of her, for some reason they are speaking to me.


Barbara said...

Jamie, What a great day and a beautiful family. The little ones make so many of our holidays special and yours sure did. The desserts look delicious and the rabbits the lady made are darling. I can't believe you had such good weather, it was cloudy and misting more of the morning.

Have a great Wednesday.


Gina said...

Hi and thank you for your comment!

Wow what a post, looks like everybody had a fantastic Easter, and the children were just adorable with their pretty dresses.

How did you make the chicks in your cupcakes look fluffy?? They looked so cute!


Jule's Spot said...

You had such a fun day...I want to live there...someday soon! We had beautiful weather here...first time in such a long time! Jesse is beautiful, she reminds me of Tiger's wife Elin...everytime I see a pic of her I think that...lucky she is with CJ!
Love you

Audra said...

What an amazing day you all had! It made me smile just looking at the kids and adults having a good time. I miss my kids at those ages! Unfortunately Miss M couldn't come home and spent the weekend at school. They had an Easter dinner that they put on for the girls that were left behind for the holiday. I thought that was the sweetest!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful family with us. So great to see you all having a blast!

Sandy said...

What a wonderful Easter you had!!!!! Are you going to raise chickens??? Can I buy eggs??? :) Jamie, I would be happy to make some decals for your Mom, I didn't really plan on having a lot at the show, but if you let me know what ones you want, I will have them there for you! There are two different images in three different colors and you know about the sizes! I am excited that you want to come to the show on the 17th!

Good Morning Sweet Girl...
I am so tickled that you had such a wonderful time with the family for Easter and that you were all able to be together. I thank you for sharing.

I just adore the family pics and the balloon toss pics. Miss C so badly wanted to catch one. She had both hands up and waiting.

Loved the chicks and I wondered what you were going to do with them. They went home to a farm how fun is that?

I loved the chickie cupcakes. They were so cute. Everything looked beautiful Jamie, just beautiful. I am clapping away over here for ya.

Have a beautiful day sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Oh that yellow tutu is a killer! :)
What a great day. Don't you LOVE having your family at church?!!!


Gina said...

Wow you must be really good at tennis then! We just bought a set and took our daughter to the tennis courts so she can learn the game, she thought it was great fun!

-That’s so funny! The Nando’s over here mainly serve chicken dishes and they have incredibly yummy hot sauces! And I believe that it’s Portuguese food.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

What a truly perfect day!

I am peeking out of my turtle shell to say thank you for your kindness and support. I just had the strength to open your lovely card.

Make sure you read the ole blog today. There is an invitation for you. There will be karoke and I think I will sing "Stayin' Alive". Duet?

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Oh, what a delightful post, Jamie!!! So much fun at your place, always.
The pic of the family at Church turned out SO beautiful!
Thank you for your prayers regarding my mom. She had the "cement" procedure done today. It looks good so far. Time will tell and so will God. He knows best. : )

This looked like the most fun I've ever seen in a family gathering. You are so lucky to have such a large family. Mine is so small. So wonderful - loved all the pictures.

You always have the best parties! Those cupcakes are just too cute and the cookie went perfectly with them.

You are so lucky with the beautiful weather you have. It was pouring rain for us on Easter Sunday. Not raining... POURING!
