Today was simply wonderful. I had a house full of family, laughter, and lots of love. Aside from it being Ava's first Easter, it was also my dad's birthday. I knew from the start of the year that I wanted to host Easter at my house, and I'm so glad that I did. I'm proud to say it went very well, and I'm thinking about making this an annual tradition (each year we are in Washington). I made an Easter ham, and other side dishes. We have a lot of leftovers, but everyone left pretty full and content. Having my family with me on special occasions really tugs at my heart. Getting us all in one room can sometimes be difficult, but when we are, it's always such a great time.

It's safe to say that Ava pretty much loves her Aunt Regina. Seeing their relationship grow seriously makes me misty-eyed. She is so comfortable with her, and you can tell that she loves her. It's the little things that makes me never want to leave Washington. This blog post is so short, but I am completely tired. I spent all weekend with some serious ligament pain, and Justin is going with me for my blood test on Tuesday. I will seriously be shocked (and worried) if I am not pregnant. I have had so many symptoms, it's crazy!

I hope everyone enjoyed this special holiday with the people they love most, and I hope everyone spent this holiday giving thanks to Jesus Christ, for without him, the lives we have would not be possible. His redemption on the cross, will always leave me feeling the ultimate grace and comfort.
