Easter 2009

Our family had such a great Easter this year. On Saturday we attended our church's annual Easter Egg Hunt. The kids helped me fill their eggs with special treats and were thrilled to hunt for eggs on Saturday. This was Jack's first time to participate in an egg hunt, since he was a little too young last year. Jason hunted eggs with Joshua and Abby Kate and I stayed with Jack and captured some pictures. I loved watching him go from trying to figure out what we were actually supposed to be doing, to gathering more eggs than he was allowed to have. I made sure that we didn't open that first egg, because I knew that would be the end of the hunt for him. He had so much fun and I think that I had just as much fun watching him!

On Easter Sunday, Jason left for church earlier than us. I had so much fun watching the kids look at their Easter baskets. We didn't play the whole "Easter Bunny" thing this year. I found it funny when everyone at church asked my kids if the Easter Bunny had come to visit them and they said no! The kids each got some special sweets in their baskets. We got Abby Kate some "Princess" summer pjs, Joshua got an Albert Pujols and Peyton Manning figure and we got Jack an Elmo DVD and a shapes puzzle. They loved their goodies and have really enjoyed eating their sweets. Today, Joshua secretly hid and ate two whole chocolate bunnies! I guess that he is a splurger, just like me!

I was thrilled to have my parents come down and go to church with us. The kids were so excited to have Nana and PawPaw visit. After church we headed home for lunch. I had picked up a HoneyBaked Ham on Saturday and we had green beans, cowboy potatoes, corn, deviled eggs, rolls and an Easter cake. We were stuffed and enjoyed eating together on Easter Sunday.

We all had a great time together this Easter. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by parents that love all of us, a husband that loves me and our children and by my children, whom I dearly love. I am so very thankful for my family.

I love their pictures. I hate I did not get to see you all Sunday. Had the college child home and they got home so late they did not want to come to the early service. Love the pictures. Jackson looks so grown up in his outfit. Great family photo. Love Joshua and Abby Kate hugging each other. Thank you for sharing and glad your parents got to come down.
