take my word for it wednesday.. easter was wonderful!!


we had a really fun easter celebration.. blending many families into a big celebration.  above is our niece and nephew {my brother's kids} and our nephew {pete's sisters grandson}.. they all got along great.. no kid melt downs!!


the every beautiful and brilliant amelia!!


pete's sister and her 2 grandkids!! :) 

 
amelia's new "trick" is to pretend to kiss you and then she licks you.. shell totally fell for it!!
 

i love each and everyone of these faces.. josh, shell, jess, sam and jake!! {with brad photobombing in the background}

 
this year the dessert table had lots of donuts... i took store bought donut holes and layered them in a glass bowl.. 


i made these insanely good chocolate donuts which i served  on glass cake plates..


i took premade donut holes and put them on sticks and arranged them like flowers in a little pot..


you kinda see them back there i ordered mason jars from amazon {didn't know they would be blue but it turned out great} I left the ring on the top and made flower arrangements in them.. 


the dessert table turned out very nice..
 

 pete made a farm table several years ago.. running along the center is a rain gutter that can be used as a ice bucket for wine, beer or water.. {basically anything you want to put in there} so I took bottles i've been picking up at yard-sales and added a tulip to each one..
 
 
i took green utensils and wrapped them with an orange napkin and tied it with green twine for a "carrot effect".. so i say to my brother did you notice they were carrots.. he said what were carrots? i said the utensil bundles looked like carrots.. he says no and I guarantee not one person here noticed they resembled carrots.. at that moment my niece was walking by and she says ohh i did i thought they were cute .. my cousin scott says i noticed too.. curtis rolled his eyes.. i stuck my tongue out at him and walked away.. ha ha..


speaking of curtis here is the butthead here with our parents :)
