Markus' chosen saint for his Confirmation was St. Francis de Asissi, so I got him this buddy from my faovirte antique store The While Elephant for his outdoor man space. Markus loves to unwind by burning whatever he can find in his chiminea. Now he'll have a friend out there.
Our table set for family to come over after Markus' baptism. I found sunflower cake idea on Pinterest (duh). The cake is gluten-free chocolate chip from my most trusted cookbook, The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free.
Scripture favors for those who attended the baptism. Found on Pinterest.
Markus being baptised Catholic! My type A flared up when I looked at this photo later and realized I forgot to smooth out my dress when I got to the altar. Why do things like this drive me crazy sometimes?
My mom got Markus 2000 ladybugs as his baptism gift. Releasing them into the backyard was awesome!
They are a natural insecticide and they'll lay their eggs in our garden so we can enjoy them for a long time.
Easter Sunday - Little Child lets the world know that He is risen as we go to my mom's (Gigi's) house.
Rules at my family's egg hunt are everyone has to wear a crazy "Easter bonnet" to get to hunt.
Hunting for eggs in the rain.
Sistah and I could not find our manly men after the rainy hunt. Turns out they were under the side porch awning smoking cigars and talkin' shop about those Watson women. Still sporting their Easter bonnets of course...
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
What were you up to this weekend?
