Easter 2011

 Easter this year was jammed pack full of fun and events.  First we started off the day with an egg hunt at hour house.  The Easter Bunny came, hit all of our eggs, and left these cuddles pillow pets behind.  K got the TC Bear and the girls got bunnies.  K was convinced that the Easter Bunny must "make" the pillow pets. 
 After our egg hunt we all got dolled up and went to church.  It was a wonderful service with such awesome music and praise for our Lord Jesus Christ.  It was a beautiful sunny day and we saw so many friends at church.  I was awesome.
After church we headed over to Grandma Mary's where she informed the Easter bunny there would be no pooping in her house....he listened...well kind of...there was a whole pile of it outside on the patio. This happened a few years ago...
 We had an awesome brunch at Grandma's house and then we took some time to do photos.  Above is a picture of our friend (and adopted family member) Jane! 
 Then we did pics of the kids and of course Grandma Mary needed all of us in a pic as well.  Notice Aimee holding up the Peace sign.  We all had a great laugh about this one. 
 After our photo shoot and breakfast, we headed over to our friend Sue's house for more hunting of eggs.  The kids had a blast running around her yard looking for eggs.  The best part about it...they were filled with money!

 After the egg hunt at Sue's we spent some time playing ball, jumping rope, and hanging out.  It was a glorious day. 
 We then headed back to Grandma's where I helped Grandma get the feast ready for that afternoon.  It was the traditional meal of ham, fennel potatoes, salads, bread, and carrots.  It was so YUMMY! 
The kids had another egg hunt in the afternoon with Uncle T.  They had a blast running around Grandpa's yard looking for the eggs.  Uncle T had hid them well so it was a bit challenging to find them all but they managed.
After dinner, the whole family joined in the fun of a baseball game.  I think Daddy and K won but we gave them a good run for their money.  I even hit a home run!
It was such a fun, beautiful day.  The kids were all so beautiful in their nice clothes and awesome Hair bows and head bands (thanks Grandma Carol).  This Easter I could not help but feel grateful for Jesus to die on the cross for our sins, for my family and friends, and simply for the sun to shine on what has been such a long winter.  Thank you Lord for all the gifts you have given to all of us.  God Bless!
