Easter Weekend

This post is long overdue! (All of these pictures are from my sister, Chrissy.)We traveled up to Idaho for Easter weekend. My niece, Katie, was baptized that weekend also. All of my siblings were able to make it and be together. It was a blast. This was the first time everyone had really been able to see Ellie and meet her. 

We told everyone we weren't coming. We were really worried about Ellie getting sick and being around a lot of people and little kids. We talked to Ellie's pediatrician and he told us we should be fine to go! I was so excited and packed everything right up! We got to my mom's house around 9 or 10 friday night. 

Everyone was so surprised! Ellie was also pretty shocked to see so many people. 





Excited Grandma!


Everyone had been traveling all day, so we all look a little tired.


Saturday morning was Katie's baptism. Oh, it was such a beautiful day! During the opening song of the baptism (I can't remember exactly what we sang, but it was a primary song), Ismael and I both had tears in our eyes. It was so surreal for us to be with all of our family, and actually out of our house with our Ellie. We were so grateful to feel like a normal family for a while. I was also overcome with joy as I watched Ellie hear other people sing together and I could tell she felt something special. (She had never been to church). Chrissy snapped these shots of Ellie and I together. 



Grandma Polly and Ellie. I love these pictures because you can see how much they adore each other. 




Sweet cheeks...





All of the kids.. minus Bonnie..

The weather was amazing in Idaho! My mom even told me that she prayed it would be good weather so we could all be outside. 












Ellie cuddled right up to Sarah and fell asleep.


My mom got some pinatas for the kids. Ismael climbed up on the roof to move the piƱata around while they swung.


A while ago my dad had pointed out that Ellie had really small feet. I hadn't really noticed anything until he pointed it out. Here are her feet compared to her cousin Paige ( 4 months old ). Ellie was 9 months old at the time.



So cute. Thank you for the fun family weekend everyone! Looking forward to doing it again!
