Everything Easter Weekend!

Grab your coffee and get cozy.  I have approximately 8 billion pictures from our Easter weekend 🙂 .

On Good Friday, Andrew’s office was closed and the kiddos were out of school, so we decided to take advantage of the beautiful day!  We had brunch at one of our favorite spots and then let the kids run around and play.  The tulips were GORGEOUS!!

It’s just never dull.

We love these four so much!!

Later that night, we met my parents and the other Lowes down on our square to celebrate Andrew’s birthday!  Andrew picked Harvest as the restaurant choice, so we all enjoyed a reallllly good meal there.

We’re all counting down the days until baby #2 arrives!!!

Papa Jay was showing Samuel and Madeley something on his phone.  They are both just so cute together!!

One group pic at the end of the night.  With my mom in the background 😉 .

On Saturday, we played outside all day until it was time to clean up and head to our church’s Easter Eggstravaganza.  We had the BEST time!!

First up, face painting!

She was super proud of her bunny face.

How cute are these two girls?!

Miss Ashby picked a unicorn…

…and Madeley a little bunny 🙂 .

This boy had spent the night before with Tab and Nixon at a football scrimmage, so I was pumped when he showed up here earlier than expected.

Snow cones for the win!

These two keep me in stitches!

Sweet friends!

We spent a lot of time in the petting zoo…

…hey look, mom!  A baby goat!

 

Look at sweet Madeley with goat food in her hand 🙂 .

 

And then it was time for the egg hunt…

…Eggstravaganza success!!

The next morning, I took this pic as we were walking into church.  Oh sweet girls!!

And then Narci took this pic of us after the service.  I love my peeps so much!!

From church, we drove about an hour to my mom’s family’s side of town to eat at their country club.  Ashby wanted her pic with the bunny…Madeley was hiding behind my legs.

Easter lunch is always so fun!!  And PS: my dress is HERE.  It also comes in white.

My handsome hubby.

 

This is what happens when you let them hit the buffet by themselves.

After lunch, we took some pics before we headed to my cousin’s house.  Here are Lovie and Papa Jay with their grandkids.

And clearly, we should have taken pics BEFORE lunch.  Smith.  Sigh.

In our family, it’s the tradition that the grandparents give the Easter baskets.  I have no clue how this started, but it’s like the Gospel.  My mom made some GORGEOUS baskets for the kiddos!

And they were filled with all sorts of fun stuff!

When you get Trolls bubbles!

And goggles!

And a baby to feed.

Photobomb by Sean.

After they opened their baskets, they ran around with bubbles.

My grandmother wanted a pic with all of her great-grandchildren.  Ashby (5), Kensington (9), Paisley (7), Penley (3), Smith (8), Cole (1), Madeley (3), Samuel (1) and one on the way 🙂 .

And then, we let them hunt eggs.  There were hundreds of eggs.  Like, it was insane.

Found one!

Run, run, run!

My cousin’s new house has a tennis court which was SO COOL to play on!

More bubble time!  These two girls are two months a part 🙂 .

And that’s it!  A super spectacular Easter weekend in the books!

I hope you had a great Easter too.  Most of all, I hope you took the time to remember that HE LIVES!!  xo

    I would have been with Madeley hiding behind someone’s legs when that Easter Bunny came out to visit. What is it about those costumes??? Hahahaha!! Your crew was looking so cute on Sunday!

  • Sheaffer Sims April 3, 2018 at 5:43 am

    What a wonderful weekend! You dress was gorgeous, and I’m still thinking about Madeley singing her heart out at church. It was one of the sweetest and cutest things I’ve ever seen. EVER.

  • Mary Elizabeth April 3, 2018 at 5:54 am

    Do you mind sharing a link to Madeley and Ashby’s shoes they were wearing at the church Easter egg hunt? They look like sketchers to me. Thanks!

    Precious. My favorite picture is your great grandmother & kiddos. What a beautiful legacy! 😊

  • Anna April 3, 2018 at 8:20 am

    I think I notice the most change in Kensington this year. She just looks so grown! In one of the pics of you and her, she looks like a mini you!

  • Shelby Bourgeois April 3, 2018 at 8:40 am

    Love the picture of them all playing with the bubbles- experiencing the pure joy of being a kid!

  • Abby April 3, 2018 at 8:49 am

    I was in Dallas for work a few weeks ago and took an afternoon to explore McKinney after following your blog for so many years. 🙂 So glad I did! We ate at Harvest and LOVED the downtown area, even if it was raining. 🙂 We’ll be back to explore more again soon!!

    Ps. Your Easter makeup looks GORGEOUS!

  • Alison Trauger April 3, 2018 at 8:58 am

    Your entire family is just beautiful. And it’s so apparent how much y’all love each other by the time you spend together. Looks like it was a pretty fabulous Easter!

  • Julie April 3, 2018 at 9:01 am

    That picture of Madeley feeding her baby doll is the sweetest thing ever. The look on her face! Glad everyone enjoyed Easter.

  • Kate April 3, 2018 at 9:36 am

    That picture of Madeley feeding her baby? CUTEST EVER.

  • Kelly April 3, 2018 at 9:36 am

    I saw you in the background of a video Sean posted on Easter. You looked amazing in your Easter dress!! So gorgeous! I loved how everyone looked! Any chance you can share where your mom’s dress is from and Kensington’s shoes! So cute!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 3, 2018 at 12:36 pm

      I am going to guess that my mom’s dress is Nordstrom and that is where K’s shoes are from too!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick April 3, 2018 at 10:08 am

    Y’all are such a good lookin’ group!! What a fun Easter!! That Inspired Chick

  • Amanda Jackson April 3, 2018 at 10:08 am

    It’s all amazing and happy and beautiful. But what stood out to me was your SKIN. Dang. So flawless!!

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams April 3, 2018 at 10:16 am

    I’m with Madeley, I hide when I see the Easter Bunny, too. Why can’t someone make a less scary Bunny costume?!!

  • Lisa D April 3, 2018 at 11:53 am

    Such a lovely family and wonderful Easter pics! Thank you for sharing you family with your blog readers.😊

  • DANIELLE K RIGG April 3, 2018 at 1:33 pm

    As I am reading your blog, I just saw a commercial for the new movie The Miracle Season, It is about a volleyball team. Thought your daughter may like it.

  • Liz THORSON April 3, 2018 at 1:44 pm

    You and the girls looked darling in various outfits in all of these pics! Andrew looked so handsome on Easter and Smith just makes me smile! He’s so all boy and looks like he wants to seem disinterested in the girly activities. With all of the cousins, it’s probably not as fun for him with no boy cousins close to his age? As adorable as Samuel and Cole are, they can’t play with Smith the way he plays w/his buddies. Your parents and grandparents must be positively giddy with joy to have such an adorable, happy, busy bunch of grands!

  • Angela April 3, 2018 at 2:49 pm

    Beautiful pictures!!!! Looks like you guys had a wonderful Easter! And Shay…your hair on Easter…gorgeous!! I think it’s time for another hair video to show us how you’re getting those soft, loose curls! It looks like a straighter look & I’m loving it!! Please Shay?! ☺️ Or at least we’d love your hair styling tips!

  • Erin April 3, 2018 at 4:34 pm

    Shay, this is totally off topic and random 😉 but what is your secret to no crows feet? Do you have a special eye cream you use? I had looked back at your facial routine and saw Keihls avocado eye cream at one point… you have such a beautiful face!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 4, 2018 at 5:29 am

      Well thank you! I am using Le Lift eye cream by Chanel.

  • Beverly Harris April 3, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    Love all of the Easter pictures! Can you share the color blue bow the girls are wearing at the egg hunt? Thanks

  • Bridget April 3, 2018 at 8:38 pm

    Your makeup is on point!! Lipstick brand?

    • Mix and Match Mama April 4, 2018 at 5:28 am

      It’s that Stila in Perla that I love so much!

  • Sarah April 3, 2018 at 10:18 pm

    You looked gorgeous on Easter!

  • Jill Peterson April 4, 2018 at 8:01 am

    Do you know how refreshing it is to see kids running around at Easter, OUTSIDE!?!! It snowed on Easter here in Wisconsin!! That’s it, I’m moving to Texas!!! =)

  • Alexis deZayas April 4, 2018 at 10:29 am

    We spent the majority of our Easter outside too! It was such a pretty weekend!

  • Stephanie April 5, 2018 at 5:49 pm
