Happy Easter

Hope everyone had a wonderful day. We did....we got up, hunted eggs, checked our Easter baskets for all the goodies that the bunny left, put on our new spring outfits and ran out the door to church. We missed Troy because he had to work but we did bring some Easter lunch from Chilis. yum! It wasn't Nana's roast but its the best I could do. :) After we ate lunch we went back to the church with some friends and let the kids hunt easter eggs. They had so much fun. It was a beautiful day to be outside. I love this time of year. I love new dresses for the kids. I love my son in a tie. I love white sandals. I love candy. I love bunnies. I love family. I love friends. I love flowers. I love Easter baskets and all that crazy grass that gets evertwhere. But most of all I love my Savior and the fact that he died for ME and YOU and then rose again to give us eternal life. Praise Him....

Macy finding eggs filled with candy!

Reid did hunt eggs but don't tell anyone! I am sad because it was probably
his last year to care about year I'll just give him a bag of candy.

My sweetie pies...ready for church.

Macy had to leave a note for the bunny just in case he needed some help on where to put the eggs. She likes to know whats going on. Before bed she hopped up and said, "I have to leave him a note to make sure that he hides them in the house." HA! That surprised me. I thought for sure whe would want them outside so the bunny wouldn't come in. :)

Dying the was a fun mess! We did miss my family this year. It was the first
year we weren't in Smithville to dye eggs. It was neat to be at home but so weird.
We missed everyone so much!
Macy's masterpiece!

Quick shopping trip with my sister to Katy Mills and to see the ever so popular bunny!
Here's "hopping" that your Easter was fantastic!

The egge hunt WAS fun! Reid was so "cool" picking up his eggs and then raiding the candy inside--he didn't mess around! :)

We dyed eggs too Saturday evening--good messy fun is right!

I love the Easter pics of your sweet kids. Its amazing how grown-up they look. Time really does fly! I'm sorry you didn't get to see your family on Easter, but I'm glad that you all had fun at the Easter Egg Hunt (and that Reid joined in!) I'm sure he was totally in it for the candy! :)

Your kids are growing up so fast! I have some photos of my kids coloring eggs when they were little - that was always one of our favorite things to do together. And I'm with you - I love everything about Easter - it signals Springtime and is such a sweet reminder of God's gift to us.
Hugs to all!
