Scenes from a Beautiful Weekend

April 25, 2011

Hi Friends!

Did you have a glorious Easter?  We sure did!  As promised, the weekend was filled with lots of laughter and fun.  Friday we had a blast with John’s parents and his sister and her wonderful family.  John’s mom made the yummiest baked fish and the kids had fun playing cards with GG. 

Saturday we spent the day at Tom and Tommy’s decorating eggs and eating yummy pizza (yay for family who loves anchovies!).  Remember those cute sparkly eggs I posted about last week that were supposedly a breeze to make? Yeah.  Those little glue dots were a bugger.  They did not want to stick to the eggs, but they did want to stick to everything else:  fingers, newspapers, other people.  Best advice:  make sure your eggs are completely room temperature before you try to stick the glue dot on.  Needless-to-say, I spent the whole time trying to get glue dots to stick on everyone’s eggs so they could play with the glitter.  : )

Jack decided to go old-school with his egg and it turned out adorable


Sunday we got all dolled-up and headed over to Michael’s house. 

Christy and Michael went all out to make the day especially lovely. 

The table was gorgeous…

 and everyone had fun getting tours of Michael’s beautiful home.

Of course, in true Vicki fashion, I didn’t manage to get even one picture of John and I, but rest-assured, we were there and having a wonderful time.  I was the one in the floral blouse and walking cast.  : )

The little details (butter in the shape of lambs!  Flowers everywhere!) made everything seem extra special.  But the highlight of the day had to be the feast Michael and Christy prepared.  Michael is a professional chef, and let me tell you, the food was spectacular!  Homemade blue cheese dressing (divine!), a ham baked in pastry and a beef bourguignon that would have put Ms. Child to shame!  The little lamb cakes were too adorable.

Michael asked Jack if he’d like to help him cut the lamb cakes:

Anyone else think giving a 9-year-old a huge knife might be a bad idea? 

But in the end, he did a fine job helping Michael:

Thank you, Michael and Christy, for a beautiful, spectacular Easter celebration!
