Let me start by saying that I'm totally new to this blog thing, I have no idea what I'm doing, but I do totally intend to enjoy myself while I do it!
Easter is a great celebration, the celebration of the life, death and resurrection of our Christ! A celebration of new life through Him, of promises kept, and hope everlasting.
So, here are some pictures of our family celebrating this great day! We started with dying eggs.
Warning! Do not dye eggs at 9pm when you have a 1 year old who needed to be asleep over an hour beforehand. To say the least, it was a grumpy time and she fell asleep in her high chair.
Sunday morning of course brought gifts and eggs from the Easter Bunny! The kids loved this time, and I treasure their sweet faces lighting up when they get gifts of any sort.
They each got a basket, it had their eggs they dyed, plastic eggs filled with candy, an Easter dress and sandals.
Baily got a Minnie Mouse dress and ears that is pink with white dots.
Paige got a Minnie Mouse dress that is light pink with dark pink dots and purple trim.
Amara got a bracelet that was little frogs made from shell pieces and a new camera to take to Disney this spring.
And miraculously no one fell off the couch!
No Easter Sunday is complete without a church service. I mean, after all, this is the Lord's Day, and it is Ressurection Sunday! Bro. Jeff did a wonderful job delivering the Good News and we left feeling humbled, at peace, and in wonder of the gift Jesus gave us all, He conquered death and He holds the keys to Hades, we do not have to fear death because of Him!
So, since our yard isn't very pretty, we walked down to our neighbors and borrowed their trees and flowers for some shots of the girls in their Easter outfits!
We had a wonderful lunch with Mark's parents and then big girls got to decorate cupcakes (Baily got to eat chocolate)
