Easter 2011

We hope you all had a blessed Easter. It was one of those days that you start running the minute you get up and go until you drop at bedtime. The kids came bounding in before 6 eager to see if the Easter Bunny had come! He did! The egg hunt quickly ensued. We were so busy Saturday we didn't get to dye eggs until first thing in the morning Sunday. The aroma of vinegar, boiled eggs and coffee is not a recommended way to start your morning. Then we had to get all dolled up for church. We went to watch my sister Chrysti lead worship! She was SO great. Such an amazing gift.

Then it was Eater brunch and giant egg hunt at Grammy's. Papa was out of town. We missed you greatly Grampy.
Corrin wasn't interested in eggs, there were stairs, and bikes and trikes!
Kaitlin on the prowl.
Hank thought this was the best day ever. Candy everywhere! Candy for breakfast, candy for snack, candy at church, candy at lunch, candy on the ground, candy after nap, candy for dessert! This must be heaven.
RJ was sprinting all over the yard like a jack rabbit!
Titus took any opportunity he could to climb a tree.
Karlie, look under your foot!
Max had a nice haul.
Hailey scored the golden egg up in the rafters.

It is easy to get caught up in all the stuff to do for Easter. But Easter "is the hour to rend thy chains, the blossom time of souls."

What day for He is risen. Risen for you! Risen for me! Oh Happy Day!

Happy Easter my friend. Glad you guys had a good one. RJ and Titus have gotten SOOO big. I guess because I don't see them as often on your blog. I swear they were just babies.

Love the Golden Egg tradition!! Way to go Hailey!
