A bittersweet Easter Celebration

We had the usual Easter dinner on the Pike.  Great food and lots of fun.  This was our first year in a really long time for an egg hunt.  We have two beautiful granddaughters in the family (not  mine, however) that are old enough to look for eggs.  Great job Aubrey Tate and Rylee Grace.  Next year we'll have a third child, with the birth of Xander Able on Friday, April 2nd.  After the egg hunt we all came in and the girls decorated sugar cookies.  I'll post pics later.  I need to thank my boys, Darryl (husband) and Dan (son) for helping get the house and yard ready for dinner and especially my lovely daughter Olivia for helping with the meal.  She really step in to help where her older sister usually takes charge.  Unfortunately Amanda, our oldest daughter couldn't make it home for the fun.  The meal wasn't the same without her and I hope it doesn't happen next year. Even though she wasn't here we had a great time and are truly blessed with a loving family. 
Here's a pic of Olivia.  She's an amazing young lady.
