The First of Many Busy Weekends

Hello friends!
I hope everybody had a wonderful Easter weekend!
It's Monday yet again, and I feel like we didn't even get two days off we were so busy.
It was a good kind of busy though, seeing lots of family and friends.
Pretty much from this past weekend on, we don't have a weekend off without plans until the wedding is over with. But I'm so looking forward to each weekend, because it's all fun plans, mostly wedding related. This past weekend was more focused on our friends and celebrating Easter.
Friday I always stay late to finish up lessons plans for the upcoming week. With Cody's new work schedule, it's the best day for me to catch up on things since we know that's the one day he will be home early for the dogs' sake. So normally our plans are pretty low key, like me bringing home Chick-fil-a or us going out to a quick dinner. We hadn't seen Paul and Ashley for awhile, so they were nice enough to wait until I got home to meet us for dinner.
Speaking of Ashley (A Thousand Words), we celebrated her first baby shower on Saturday at her sister-in-law's house! They did a great job of making sure everything looked cute, and the mama-t0-be just looked adorable. The boys tagged along and went bowling while the girls babied it up. We're ready for Miss Nora to get here already. After June 7th though. :)
After the shower, we headed over to Brittany's parent's house to take some family pictures. Her family is HUGE and full of kids, and they managed to get everybody in town, so she wanted some family shots of everybody together. It was sweet of Brittany to ask me to take part in it, and I definitely wasn't going to pass down a chance to see my favorite peanut!
And lucky me gets to see this cutie at my shower next weekend!
Sunday was of course, Easter!
My mommy was sweet enough to send us some Easter goodies on Friday for us to enjoy.
Including this bunny candy dish. :) Thanks mom!
We were invited to go to church with Cody's family that morning, so we joined along and actually really enjoyed it. We're hoping when we move one day, we'll find our permanent home church. But this one was perfect for the occasion. 
When we got back, I wanted to attempt a few pictures of us in our Easter best, but it proved to be a little difficult with nobody to take our picture. So that explains why were crunched down on our tiny porch because that's the only place we could set the camera up. Desperate times calls for desperate measures! ;) After that fun-filled photo shoot, I'll be investing in a tripod preeeeetty soon.
It just so happened that the Easter bunny paid a visit to Cody, and knew just what he liked.
A MANLY Easter basket! (more on that tomorrow)
And we tried including Maci in on the fun, but obviously she wasn't having it.
Five pictures later, that's the best we got. :)
We spent the rest of the afternoon at Cody's aunt & uncle's house with family and enjoying the lovely Easter weather!
I hope everybody had a wonderful Easter weekend!
Enjoy your Monday!
