And finally, we lead up to Easter Sunday, the day of our Lord's resurrection. What an awesome God we have to place Himself among us, to be born of man, and to give Himself as the Supreme sacrifice to cover the sins for all mankind. Awesome indeed.
Our day started with treats from the Easter bunny. The children each got a toy, a picture Bible, a chocolate bunny, and other candies. We ran around in a mad rush to make it to church on time, and we did! Yeah!
We hosted Easter lunch for my dad & stepmom (aka Granddaddy David & MawMaw), Billy's dad (Granddaddy Bill), Rita's mother, Mary Emma, and my brother & family (Rusty, Beth, Anna, & Walker). Rita (MawMaw) brought the ham and a carrot cake, and Mary Emma brought a cute pink bunny cake. Beth brought deviled eggs and rolls, and I supplied the rest. After we ate, it was out for another egg hunt! Whew! I was glad that this was the last one of the year. No, wait...after the kids found all the eggs, they hid them for the adults to find. It was really cute; there were huge clusters of them instead of being spread out in the yard.
Rebecca ate so many boiled eggs, deviled eggs, and candy, that we just knew she was going to get sick! She has overeaten scrambled eggs on two occasions that we got to see again. (Too much information??)
After a short rest, we were back out to Sunday School this evening. How about pizza then for Easter dinner?! Finally.....BEDTIME!
In our Easter best!
Beth, Rebecca, & Anna
Vivian, do you see one?
Keep looking, Henry!
Walker calls it quits and decides to swing.
O.K., here is the prime reason that you don't see many photos of me on this blog! I have some sort of genetic anomaly that prevents me from keeping my eyes open when a camera flashes. I know it has to be genetic because my mom is afflicted with it too! :)
