Christ is Risen!!!

What a wonderful holiday! I'm so greatful for the sacrifice God made for each and every one of us and thankful to know that we can have eternal life!

We celebrated with a whole bunch of Hawkins peeps! We left Thursday afternoon and drove to Weatherford to Aunt Debbie and Uncle Bub's house. Friday morning the fam all played in a golf tournament. Most of the day was mass chaos....but I loved every minute of it! I miss seeing my cousins at Christmas and Thanksgiving like the old days, so these get together make me a very happy girl!

Sean playing with Levi. He and Brent were both so good with him!! (Sean and Brent belong to my cousin Samantha.)

Before I start I'll give you the shake down of who belongs to who in case you aren't familiar with all the Hawkins clan. Aunt Debbie and Uncle Bub (mom's brother) were the hosts for this get together. Samantha (cousin) and Craig have 2 boys, Brent and Sean. Shelle (cousin) and
Cory have Carly and Devin. Matthew (cousin) and Jennifer have 3 girls, Ava, Audrey and Addison.

Finally hanging out with cousin Shelle!!

And some cousin Samantha fun!

These are just a couple of snap shots of everyone visiting. That's Aunt Debbie, our hostest with the mostest, in the blue shirt.

I love this picture of Carly and Ava with their water guns!

And Ava even got Trent too :)

This was hilarious! They were all climbing up and down the stairs inside those tunnels. I think there were like 6 of them in there at a time! Isn't Carly gorgeous?!? Looks just like her momma!Just a few of the hunters getting ready for the 300 eggs we hid. Samantha got a little egg happy! hahah, the kids LOVED it though!

Devin and Carly, Sean and Brent, and obviously not a Hawkins kid in the aggie clothes in the back :) (He belongs to my Aunt Debbie's nephew.)

Levi, Grandpa and Momma

Let the hunting begin! Matthew trying to steer Audrey in the right direction.

Grandpa helping Levi pick up his first Easter egg! He couldn't quite grab it but he tried soooo hard! It was a football egg of course. :)

Some very special people in my life!

Grandpa taking Levi and Devin on a golf cart ride. Evidently the golf cart is Devin's favorite thing! This was shortly before he tried to drive it off himself! haha. He's 2 :)

Nana and Levi playing at Rosa's. He must be so happy that his Momma got to eat there! Mom and Dad's friends Jim and Susan came too so Jim could play in the golf tournament. I had a blast visiting with mom and Susan on Friday morning.We got up early Saturday morning (well let's face it...we always get up early now) and drove to Gainesville. Mom and Dad were very eager to show us Store #3 in Ada, OK so we drove some more. The store looks awesome and should open up at the end of May! The Nelsons are very busy people these days!

And finally...the only picture of our little Easter bunny on his first Easter! He snoozed through the service, go figure! Mom and Dad go to early church so it was prime napping time for Mr. Levi. He sure looked handsome though! (So did his dad who's holding him!)

Uncle Roy and Bea also stopped by Sunday after church, they had been camping not too far away and were on their way home!

We missed Steve and Kristie this time because they went to spend Easter with Mawmaw and Papa in Crane. We had a blast but it sure wore on Levi. He had really bad allergies all weekend and was MAD by the time we got to the Woodlands on Sunday afternoon. Needless to say after all that driving he had had ENOUGH of that car seat!

And now some Levi updates that I want to remember. :)

He is sitting up really well these days! He's even started to catch himself when he loses his balance.

He's still sleeping wonderfully, going down at 8 and sleeping until 6:30.

He only rolls over from his tummy to back, he still HATES being on his tummy.

He gets very excited when it's time to eat!

He's really discovering his voice. This afternoon he yelled for about 30 minutes when we got home. Not because he was mad, it just sounded like he was talking VERY LOUD.

He has started to grab Gunner's hair already. When he's sitting up and Gunner comes over to him he starts laughing and reaching for him. I see some snapping and crying in our future.

He still loves bath time. No matter how cranky he is, the minute he hears that water running he's smiling! We can't skip bath at all or he doesn't want to go to sleep.

I keep thinking he's about to get a tooth but so far nothing has popped through. He sure has all the signs, but who knows.

He is the most laid back baby I've ever seen. He goes with the flow and 90% of the time is smiling and laughing. His grin just melts my heart!
