What a great day of celebration we had.....

 

Our day began with Easter baskets filled with treats. :)

Rebekah was quick to tear into hers without any reservations.....

Anna was a little more hesitant but once she realized there was candy to be had she had a death grip on all things sugar.

 

Notice the location of candy in this picture....

Even while getting dressed, Daddy somehow managed to get Anna's clothes on with out removing the treasured sweets.

After a wonderful church service we headed over to my parent's house where the Easter festivities only continued....

More Easter baskets of treats and egg hunts made for smiles from both of our girls.

 

 

I LOVE THIS PICTURE OF MISS ANNA!

 Now I mentioned yesterday that my Dad is quite serious when it comes to egg hunts.....

Here is a test..... can you find the egg in this picture?

This was one of the "easy" ones at "children's eye level."

Anna checking out every possible hiding spot...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the weather in So Cal today being what it was, (HOT) it was a little confusing as to whether we were celebrating Easter or the 4th of July......

My girls took an Easter dip to cool off.

After a FULL day we are home, the kids are in bed, we are slightly EGGS-hausted( sorry I had to put that in there), there is more candy in the house than we know what to do with and BEST of ALL we can most assuredly say...........

HE IS RISEN!!

Happy Easter! Hope you all had a wonderful day! We serve a mighty and powerful God and only through HIM do we have life eternal.

What a REASON TO
C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E!

  1. Want to know why I LOVE YOU and why we are FRIENDS? Because you are one of the only other people my age (And that I know) that understands "old school" church and when someone says, "He is RISEN"...you are supposed to say, "HE IS RISEN INDEED!". It's good to know that we grew up the same :)
    LOVE YOU and HAPPY EASTER! See you tomorrow!
