I ironed our clothes and put out Amelia and Alex's Easter baskets the night before. I was really looking forward to Easter Sunday. As a believer, how can you not be overwhelmed with gratitude for what Christ did for you?? I can't even think about it without crying. He took on the sins of this world. My sin. So I could have eternal life!! Thank you, Jesus!
I took Amelia's basket to church for her to dig into because Alex wanted to see her open everything. He leaves really early on Sunday mornings, so I hid her basket until we arrived at church. She opened everything up in his office.
She really liked the sunglasses. :)
I was only going to put one of these pictures on here, but I love Amelia's facial expressions in all of them.
Alex's entire family came to church with us this morning! We loved having all of them!! I worked with the kiddos this morning. I told them the Easter story with the resurrection eggs. If you don't have those for your child - you should get them. Such a neat way to explain the Easter story to younger children. They all got so excited when we got to the last egg and it was empty. It stood for the grave which no longer contains Him. HE IS RISEN!!
After a wonderful church service - we headed to Alex's cousin's home. She just married and they were gracious enough to host Easter lunch this year. We had SO MUCH food. I bet there were over 50 of us there - it was such a fun time.
And then it was time for the big Easter egg hunt for the kiddos!
She has started doing her nose like this and it cracks me up.
She was most interested in opening the eggs rather than finding them. She ran and ran all over that yard though. She played so hard.
I loved watching her see one, pick it up, open it, and then put it in the basket. She was too young to do any of this last year. :)
Me and my man. I love him so much.
It was a beautiful day.
I hope you had a blessed Easter with family and friends.
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
Love to all,
