We had a four day weekend around Easter. It was awesome getting to spend that extra time together.
We dyed eggs, of course. I think we only broke 4 or 5 eggs while dying them this year - it's getting better. We ended up with a lot of Charger's eggs.
Emmy and I had an argument half way through, so she was sad for part of it. I had to bribe her to smile again by telling her I would take a picture of just the girls next...
Jord and Ben and Molly (who are about to be our neighbors!!) Woohoo.
After church, we tried to go out to eat, but it was too crowded, so we headed next door to McDonald's. What a smart choice. The kids had a blast. The food was, in fact, pretty gross as usual though.
We kept their Easter baskets pretty simple this year. I LOVE shopping for baskets. It's so fun to be thoughtful for each kid.
Easter morning, we had to get up at the crack of dawn to open baskets before we dropped Zack off at work.
So much joy.
Here's the kids' table.
Another egg hunt. Kids vs. AdultsHandsome. Handsome. Handsome.
Here's the adults' piles of eggs when it was our turn to hunt.
I don't know who came up with it, but he says he's "Fred" when he's wearing it. He saves stuffed animals, flies, and protects Mommy.
Overall, it was a fantastic weekend.
I am so thankful for family and friends. I am so thankful for Jesus and our church. I am so thankful for my life.
