Easter 2012

Easter weekend was wonderful....celebrating Jesus' resurrection with egg hunts, family time, and delicious food!!!

We kicked off the weekend with Saturday's Optimist Club egg hunt. We've went to this for the past three years, and by now, the kids know what to expect and know what friends will be there, which is what makes it so fun!

Everlee's first egg hunt!!!! Well, first one she's actually participated in.

After a little instruction from Grandma, she was good to go!

Cru had things figured out too.....

.....figured out there was actually chocolate under those wrappers! I think he ate about ten pieces while sitting there.

Reese's age group was across the park, so Grandpa took her. I was worried about her being shy and hesitant, but boy, did she make a hall!

Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa for helping since Daddy had to work.

Almost all the people were gone, and my kids were still picking up pieces of chocolate....

Our bag of candy probably weighed 10-15 pounds! ALL was thrown in the trash!

Onto Sunday.....

Instead of Sunday school, the kids had an egg hunt at church.

Everlee knew exactly what she was doing!

The older kids hunted across the street at the park.

Since there were only three kids in Everlee's group and what seemed like 100 eggs, the big kids came over to help!

Our pastor's beautiful daughter, Maggie, whom my kids ADORE!!!! They refuse to leave church until they see her. She is such a sweet heart.

After church, we headed to my parent's house for lunch and more egg hunting with Ty, Audrey, and Charlee.

Charlee Mae....isn't she the cutest?! And getting so big!

Little girls :)

Big kids!

Cru and Everlee took a short nap, then we headed to Chet's parents.

Reese and Casyn playing with squinkies!

So thankful Reese is old enough to know that although Easter egg hunting and the Easter bunny is fun, it's really about Jesus! So thankful for our families! So thankful for our children who make each and every holiday so much more special and memorable than I ever thought possible! So thankful for Jesus Christ who died and rose again to save each and every one of us!
