First for Easter, we went to my dad’s house. It is kind of ironic that he gets married when I finally learn to cook.
We had a great time at my dad’s as usual! I can’t get enough of my dad’s phrases such as “Copy” or when he yawns “Ah…chubaka chubaka chubaka”, seriously that is what he says J… they just never get old. And now that my husband has been around my dad some more I now here at home “Oh, whatever”. Thanks Dad!
I also took advantage of my dad marrying someone with 2 girls! I moved up from doing my dolls hair to theirs J! I had to practice as I have been asked to do Halley Spellman’s hair for her wedding. Pretty sure she is going to want a peacock in her hair like Carrie off of the SATC (Sex & the City) movie! So I’ve got my work cut out for me ;)! Just kidding Halley… I hope!
Here are some pictures of the trial run.
Fun times! But the fun then had to travel to Manhattan to spend the rest of Easter with Nathan’s parents!Let’s just start with we walked through the door and Ron, Nathan’s dad, shut off the TV, and it wasn’t turned on for the rest of the night!
We hadn’t see Ron & Betty for a while so we had lots to catch up on. And considering I had close to a 2 hour drive with Nathan to get there… we both needed some alcohol. Let’s just say, 2 people can’t drive the car so there is the problem!
So the margaritas began…
After a few, we thought it was time to revisit the past! It was like finding hidden treasure! Ron’s grandpa brought over a trunk full of his belongings when he came to American from Germany.
We soon had to head back upstairs because well… that is where the blender was :)! It was then cards time!
When we finished the 2nd pitcher we came to a fork in the road. Do we be smart, knowing that EASTER SUNDAY is tomorrow and listen to what I am sure is God’s voice saying “Back away from the booze Koesters” OR do we listen to the Alcohol Devils that are saying “Why is that even a question … blend that sh*t”? Well for your enjoyment, we figured lets be devils tonight and angels tomorrow!
Many random things happened after this brilliant decision…
We talked about Ron & Betty getting their hot tub in a couple weeks. Here they are testing it out.
What followed was family picture time! I am thinking though it might have been our pre-mug shots potentially!
You can’t go to jail for chopping down trees at midnight? Really!! Even if it blocks your view of the city??We thought to ourselves, what do we need? 1 person to hold the tree so it doesn’t fall back on us, 1 person to saw the tree, 1 to hold the flashlight, and 1 to document the evidence!
Nate and Ron started with the saw. After both men tried to show their manliness, we decided to bring out the big guns!
That’s right… the chainsaw!
Not sure if we would of got turned in for a “Noise Disturbance” claim from the chainsaw or Betty yelling “STOP STOP SOMEONE IS GOING TO HEAR US”! Needless to saw, Betty and I were dying laughing by this time!Finally though, success! Everyone lived, no one went to jail, and Betty & Ron had a great view… or so we thought!
When we came back we took some pictures on their deck in our fancy wear! Ironically enough… the view we thought we created last night had another sneaky ass tree behind it! Don’t worry, July 4th is coming up, we’ll get that SOB of a tree!
Moral of the Easter story…I love my family! We may be alcoholics, rebels without a cause, and crazy lunatics that shoot guns at Christmas for quality time together, but I wouldn’t change a thing! Until the next run in with the law… I mean family gathering…
