24 Weeks!

I feel like the weeks are really starting to fly by now.  I am still feeling great and feeling baby girl move around ALL the time now.  Jason and my mom have both felt her move which is really exciting.  This week is one of my busiest weeks of the year at work, and I have been working super late.  Jason has been asleep every night by the time I get home so all I have are a few bad phone pics to document my ever-growing belly.  Once things start to slow down at work, I am looking forward to working on the nursery and getting some of the "to-do before baby arrives" things checked off my list.

Easter Weekend at the Lake

We headed up to the lake for Easter weekend with the family again this year and had such a great time.  My parents, Cale, the Skaife's, Brian and Justin all joined us for the weekend so we had a packed house.  Donna, David, Jess and Grandma Bev also came up Sunday for Easter lunch.  Everyone brought way too much yummy food, and we enjoyed lots of time on the boathouse and playing outside.  It really was the perfect weekend of relaxing with so many of the people I love.  Despite being out of town and not able to attend church Easter morning, I am so grateful for everything Easter represents.  All of the bunnies, egg hunts and time spent with family is so fun, but the biggest blessing is that God gave his Son to pay for our sins, that he died, and that He rose again for all that will acknowledge Him as their Savior.  I couldn't have asked for a better weekend and hope that ya'll had a great time celebrating as well.

Jason and I got Jax this baseball machine for Christmas, and he got to use it at the lake this weekend.

 Tami and Ross came by and took some of the crew on a boat ride.
 Dad made homemade ice cream for everyone Saturday night.
 Donna brought eggs for pocking on Sunday.  Pocking eggs is a Cajun Easter tradition that I learned when Jason and I started dating.  Jax was the ultimate champion for the day.
