Easter

Easter Sunday!

Oh what a day!

Our Savior is Risen!

He lives!

He lives!

He lives!

I always struggle with what to say on Easter. Our celebrations, for as wonderful as they are, never seem fully fitting for the occasion. I don’t think we will ever fully and completely “get it” this side of eternity…. I think we only have a small glimpse of the magnitude of what was accomplished that glorious day. HE ROSE! And now death has no sting, no victory, no hold!

Here is what our day looked like…. with LOTS of pictures!

Wake up! Easter baskets!

Micah decided to throw all his eggs in the empty pool. That way the sisters couldn’t snag his stash.

Grandpa hid so many eggs.. he had to re-check his “spots” to make sure we got them all.
