Yesterday, Thursday was the boys' first day of Spring Break!! We spent the morning running a few baby errands and then spent our afternoon having a little Easter party (or so we called it).
He's down with a melt down!
Making bunny cupcakes - recommendation from Aunt Ashley. Its fun now that they can actually help.
Brooks didn't want anything to do with them b/c of the coconut. He had his own plain jane cupcakes while Barrett gobbled up the bunny.
As usual in Doha, we go to church on Friday. So we wore our Easter get-up today although its Good Friday. After church we went to The Pearl (high end outdoor development with retail/restaurants/office space/residential/etc)...tried to get a few pictures before our family and life changes dramatically.
Brooks took over the camera. Nice white van with staring man.
Wish Brooks had chopped off my head instead of Nick's. I'll be celebrating Jesus' resurrection and my hair's resurrection Easter Sunday morning at the hair salon!! And obviously its just time to have this baby! XL and feelin' it! Enough said!
Just before we left I flagged a random person down to take a family pic.
Barrett insisted we stop by the fountains!
After a few pictures we went to the LaRovere's to indulge in good Texas cookin'. Jackie's mom, Judy (JuJu) is in town for a few weeks and she spoiled us with roast, potatoes, carrots, corn on the cobb, etc. We made our selves miserable and enjoyed every bite. We all missed the usual ham but JuJu's roast was the perfect Easter lunch in Doha.
We're really thankful JuJu is here. The boys will be staying at Jackie's house if Georgia decides to arrive before Honey. JuJu's extra set of grandmommy hands and her sweetness are the next best thing for the Bees, plus 4 boys under 4 in the same house!
We had a great Good Friday. Not much planned for our weekend. Keeping things open...???? The Easter bunny is supposed to visit our house. Sunday Nick will go to work as he usually does, I'll get the hair done, the boys will play with friends and we'll go to church Sunday evening for an Easter service. Although the different schedule takes some getting used to, I'm simply thankful we can worship at all and especially for Easter. My heart has been forever changed having moved to Doha. God's grace and love through His Son means more to me now more than ever.
Happy Easter Weekend!
