This morning we got up and had coffee and got ready to go to his parents. My parents were meeting us over there. I was so excited to have our family together for Easter. We didn’t go to church, perhaps next year.

When we arrived at his parents’, I stayed back to help, and Drew went to go pick up his great aunt Tootsie. I had two more cups of coffee, but I was still so sleepy. The weather was kind of dreary too. It wasn’t as nice as yesterday.

Aunt Tootsie and Drew arrived before my parents, and we ate dinner about 2:30pm. There was ham, kielbasa, baked pineapple, potatoes, green bean casserole (we made it and brought it over), stuffed cabbage, and deviled eggs. There was so much food.

After dinner, we sang Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law. She is 59. She doesn’t look 59 at all. It was nice to have everyone together around the table.


This year we had to divide Easter up into two. We spent most of the time at my parents. We arrived at 1pm. I helped my mom with dinner. Drew and my dad hung out in the living room and watched TV. I had a couple beers. Drew was driving. 🙂 My cousins arrived around 2:15pm. My little cousin Angie, she is going through a hard time right now and needs all the love and support. She and I have always been close ever since she first arrived from Guatemala as a little baby. When she first met me, she reached for me to hold her. We had an instant connection. I will always want to protect her and love her like a sister.

After dinner, we took some snap chat pictures. It made her laugh all the different filters and videos to choose from. Some make your voice sound so funny and high pitched. Others just make you look weird. Angie starts a new school tomorrow and I hope all goes well and she has a good day.  Her cousin Danni is here for her.
Drew and I had to leave around 5pm to go see his Grandma in the nursing home. Thankfully she was discharged from the hospital and is back at the nursing home. I wasn’t sure what we were going to walk into when we saw her. When we arrived she was sleeping. I went over to her bedside and slowly put my hand on her shoulder and said, “Grandma.” She woke up, opened her eyes, and her eyes lit up. I said, “Happy Easter!” She smiled and said, “Happy Easter,” She looked over at Drew and he wished her a Happy Easter and kissed her check. She said that I looked beautiful and drew looked handsome. We told her she is beautiful too. 🙂
Awhile after we arrived, his mom arrived. When she walked in, she said, “Hi Mama!” It was so cute. Grandma’s favorite people were all there to visit her. She asked us what we had to eat? Poor grandma can’t eat whole foods right now, she is fed through a tube. She is a choking risk. I was glad that we got to see her.

When we left we went home and prepped for the week. We packed up our lunches and then I changed into my PJs I was so tired. I didn’t have the energy to shower. I was so tired from the events of today and didn’t want to go to work tomorrow.
