Weekly Weekend Update - Easter Edition!

Easter weekend was a whirlwind weekend - but a great one!

First the weekend started off with me coming home from work on Friday to clean, clean, clean to get ready for my family to come into town.

I really don't know why I clean before my family comes, because I know they could careless how our apartment looks, but still I do it.

I must have OCD. Probably old news.

Luke had to work all weekend to prepare for our Easter service so he was up at the church Friday night.

But I was able to meet up with him and the rest of the church staff for a good dinner at Red Robin, which was lots of fun!

Saturday my whole family headed into our town to help clean up around my grandparents newly built cabin. The construction workers left lots of junk so we helped clean it up.

If you have been around this blog for more than a day you know that manual labor is not my cup of tea, but I try my best to work hard when its for a good cause.

With our work gloves on:

My youngest sister Haley working hard:

While we were working hard, Maxton became friends with a baby goat. He loved playing with the goat!So cute:Sometime during all the hard work, I had to leave to take my sister Kati to get her hair done (that is how good my hair girl is, people drive in from out of town to go to her).

I also had to drop Luke off at the church to do more work. But before I dropped him off we stopped at a store to find a new shirt for him to wear on Sunday.
Every worship leader needs to look good!

He didn't find anything at the store, but I was able to capture this cute pic.

Anytime Luke is around, Maxton wants nothing to do with me, he only wants his Uncle LuLu (this is the name I made up for Maxton to call Luke and he H-A-T-E-S it, but I love it).Saturday night my family spent the night and went to church with us the next morning.

I absolutely loved having them at our church. I wish they lived close enough to go every Sunday.

My fam, minus 2 people (Maxton was sleeping and Luke had to take the pic)

Me and baby Maxton at church:
Luke and I after church service: (this picture was originally of us with my grandparents, but my grandpa was blinking and I don't think he would appreciate me putting it up for everyone to see)
It was such a great Easter weekend and I am so thankful for such a great husband and a great family.
Today (Sunday) was a dreary rainy day which was a perfect way to end the weekend. Luke and I have just hung out laying around watching our favorite TV shows. It has been a great day before the work week.
I absolutely love rainy days. Last year we had like 18 rainy days in a row and while everybody was complaining I was LOVING it!
I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

You look so good in the Easter pics with the fam and with Luke but my personal favorite is your face in the green shirt/manual labor picture...it perfectly captured how I know you were feeling in the moment and made me laugh outloud!
