Kev and I had quite the Easter weekend.
One for the memory books!
We had so much going on Easter Sunday that we opted to do the Saturday evening Easter service, just the two of us, before both of our families were under one roof for the first time.
So we put on our Saturday best and off to church we went.
and that would be our new memory wall in the background. full of pics of strangers. it's a work in progress.
though if you look closely there is a baby bailey pic on the wall ;-)
That evening Kev's parents came to town with pizza and fresh salad in hand.
We spent Saturday night in with them on the couch watching a movie and enjoying each other's company.
My parent's drove up early Sunday morning for our Easter lunch/dinner.
My mama and my future MIL helped me out in the kitchen and we made enough food for an army!
Deviled Eggs, hashbrown casserole, broccoli casserole, my special green bean bundles, daddy's smoked ham, coleslaw, mama's baked beans and oreo/dirt pudding cake. Delish!!

Uggie Sue in her normal state of mind
It was so nice to have everyone under the same roof for such a special holiday.
Everything went perfect!!!!
The doggies loved it too.
This pic was taken moments before uggie decided to jump up in my spot and try to steal a piece of my ham.
We pigged out
and i think after our feast Charlie had already read all of our minds.....
We had around an hour before we needed to leave for the baptism.
So we put on a pot of coffee and sat around on the back patio enjoying the beautiful day in KY and talking all things wedding.
Please look at Uggie's face in this pic.
(kev had an outfit change for the baptism)
Of course I had to have a group photo :-)
And look who decided to get in on the action all on their own....precious doggies.
We then headed over to our church for the pond baptism.
Kev signed up
look out how many people were there for support.
there were over 300 people signed up to baptized in the pond that day.
it was amazing and so powerful!
Prayer circle involving our pastor and associate pastors performing the baptisms.

No matter where we go, those tattoos are already a source of conversation. Even if you are getting baptized :-)
Kev was baptized by one of the main youth pastor's at our Church, Nate.
Discussing Kev's "journey"
These pics speak for themselves
This one is my favorite, the one of him coming back up from the water.
Every time I look at it I am so emotionally overwhelmed and so proud of him.
So blessed that Kev's parents and my parents were able to be part of such a special day.
I can not even begin to describe the emotions i had last Sunday.
I am so in love with this man and I am so thankful that God put us in each other's lives.
So blessed that we were able to share this holiday with the most important people in our lives and remember what Easter is all about.
And for Kev to be baptized....just made this Easter even more special.
To God Be the Glory :)
