Our family celebrated together on Palm Sunday with Lucy and Scottie’s baptism so Easter was low key. Kalissa’s family and Karl were both here and we made a memorable day of it. A few of us had gotten Easter things for Buck’s kids. Kelli had gotten Scottie bubbles and he LOVED them!! Buck and Lora took a video of him with them and sent it to us. Carver LOVED watching the video of Scottie playing with bubbles. He kept saying “Scottie, bubbles”.
The second the video played, Carver wanted to play it again.
For some technology, I am thankful for!!
Karl has been going on and on and on about tamales ever since he was student teaching in Texas. He’s begged me to make them so I started watching a couple videos…and then got nervous. I’ve never had a tamale. How am I suppose to know how they taste?! Then I remembered that we have to fail a few times to get it right so I started in…with Carver’s help.
Karl worked on the meat….
These two sillies helped me put the tamales together….
While they cooked we all hung out….
The boys love playing cards….I do too but Kalissa doesn’t so she took a nap and we played.
We had trouble getting the tamales steamed through as we didn’t have the best equipment. We learned a lot….we have WAY more to learn. They were good enough that I’ll try to make them again….I sure wish I had at least tasted a real one once in my life though. It was a great activity to work on as a group to keep everyone entertained. I like having projects like this when the kiddos come home. The food is the thing that a Karl missed the most from Texas.
We had a fun Easter…Can you believe I was so busy I never touched a sewing machine the entire weekend? That never happens…and the best part, I was so busy having fun that I didn’t miss it. I love our family!
