We celebrated Easter this weekend by having our families join us for dinner. My parents, Kimberly and Nathanael came down Friday and hung out with us for the weekend. I put them to work on several projects (stay tuned for those details) and come Sunday we hosted dinner with Steve’s parents as well. It was so nice to be able to finally have our family over to our house and have enough space for everyone to comfortably visit, cook, and eat. Plus, it gave us some incentive to clean up a bit and see how nice our house can look when it’s not in project chaos. We were a little worried on Friday when we couldn’t find the bolts to the kitchen table, but we found those after we put together the air hockey table and discovered we had spares….So Easter dinner was served in our new dining room on an actual table. I also discovered a few short comings in my “hostessing items” including: a gravy boat, a gravy ladle, a water pitcher, serving spoons, and a tablecloth…but we made do. Officially added to my Target shopping list!
We made an awesome dinner — ham, mashed potatoes, green been casserole, ciabatta mozzarella bread, and strawberry pie for dessert. YUM!!! (and yummie leftovers too!)
And yes, it’s impossible to get Kirby to look at the camera…this might be the only picture I have of his cute little face looking at the camera….
There you have it! Easter dinner was a success! (and no, the house is not clean anymore…right after our house guests left, we got right to work on a muddy mess…details on that definitely coming soon as well)
