Our Easter Blessings!

Easter at Church
Saturday morning, Zayde and I went to an EGGstravaganza at our church. We hunted Easter Eggs, and then listened to a great Easter story message from our Children's Pastor, Randy Graham. He had special eggs with little trinkets inside to represent different parts of the story (ex: a little cross represented the cross that Jesus died on, a little stone represented the stone that covered His tomb, etc.) Zayde had such a fun time and Mommy got a little bit of candy out of the deal. :)


I only had to show him with two eggs how to pick up an egg and put it in his basket. He caught on so fast and filled up his basket all by himself! I figured he would try to take the eggs out of his basket to play with them, but he loved filling up his basket.

Once again, Zayde was so excited about filling his Easter basket!



We tried getting a descent family photo, but to no prevail. I could not get my husband to cooperate and not squint so much!



Easter at Papa and Nana's...

My nephew's, Paxton and Cayden, hid the eggs for us and helped Zayde find them.


Mia, Zayde and Addye checking out their eggs...

Zayde and Kynzie are the two youngest cousins, being only 4 weeks apart. It is so much fun watching them together!

The women played Clue, while the men watched basketball and the kids played. After a few minutes of no interruptions, my sister and I said to each other, "Where are the babies?" We looked around the house and found them in the play room just playing away with the kitchenette. They were having the time of their lives with no adults to bother them! I'm sure they were playing 'Mommy' and 'Daddy' :)

And we tried again to get a good family photo- it just wasn't our day...

I hope your family had a blessed Easter as well!

I love Zayde's blue hat and I love your white dress with the hint of yellow!! I do understand the problem with trying to get a good family photo. It's just Bryan and I but we rarely have success.

It sounds like you had a very eventful day.

I love how you dress Zayde! He looks like such a preppy "little man". Every time I look at pictures of him it makes me smile! I also love how you all match at Easter. I tried to match us, but couldn't find anything pink for me. It didn't matter because I forgot to take any pictures of us dressed up! :)
