for easter i had people over from church that didn't have family in the area and i hosted a big dinner for everyone. there ended up being 11 of us. i took care of the ham (my first time doing it all by myself) and the dessert. i had each person bring something else to add to the meal. everything ended up turning out great! thanks everyone :-)

after lunch i hid around 300 eggs in and outside of my house while everyone waited patiently outside in the front :-) this was my 2nd annual easter egg hunt and it was so fun to see adults turn into little kids as they scurried around every nook and cranny. michael and millie shipe swept the competition this year. millie found the most eggs...i believe her total count was 48! and michael found the large silver egg that got him a prize as well. afterwards we watched ironman. the whole day was a blast and i'm so thankful for all of my wonderful friends :-)

just moments before the egg hunt started

I always knew my Nikki would be a great hostess! I am so happy for you in your new home. You friends are blessed to have you there to make them feel like family. It is so weird not being around family around the holidays.
