He is Risen! And blessed our family with another life!

We were already planning on going to Gainesville for Easter because Nathan and Braeden were going to have their birthday party before their new brother got here. However....God had different plans! Our new nephew, Lucas Elijah Nelson, was born on April 3rd! We are so thankful that he arrived safely and he and his mommy are home and recovering great!

Trent, Dad, Steve and Jim played in a golf tournament on Friday while I headed on to Gainesville to meet the new addition!

Proud Daddy, big brother Braeden, and baby Lucas!

A lot of boys I love on that couch!!
 Friday night we finally got to watch Braeden play T-ball. We haven't ever gotten to watch either of them play so I was very excited.

 Levi learning all about T-ball
 Braeden hit a home run!
 Levi couldn't wait to go explore after the game
 I had to make festive Easter eggs of course...plain white deviled eggs would never do to celebrate the Resurrection!
 Saturday, the lodge at Lake Kiowa had an Easter egg hunt.

 Levi was way more interested in the dogs haha!

 Beautiful view! This made me really anxious for the changes that are coming in our life!

 All the kids! Hannah is Kristie's niece, they all had a blast!
 And here's the newest tiny member!!
 Since Kristie wouldn't have been able to make the originally planned birthday party, we had just a little family one at Steve and Kristie's on Saturday. The boys got an Xbox and new TV for their room....definitely excited!

 Levi was grinning as they sang...I guess he thought it was his brithday! haha
 Then we did an egg hunt at the house. Excuse the white trash baby....he was absolutely in heaven playing outside with the boys all day. His adorable polo outfit got removed about half way through the day because I feared it would no longer have knees in it. :)

 And look at that handsome Easter outfit! He's soooooo big now!

 Getting some aunt snuggles before we left Sunday morning!
Chloe update: I'm 31 weeks now! Crazy! I saw the doctor today and everything looks great. She's measuring right where she should be so she may not be late after all. I am feeling very large now though! I don't really understand weight gain is almost exactly like it was with Levi but I feel like I'm HUGE! Oh well...we have a healthy, growing girl and that's all that matters! She reminds me often that she's in there, she moves A LOT. I can't wait to meet her sweet face!! Holding Lucas made me even more anxious for her to be here!!
