"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying." Matthew 28: 6

Easter morning was a flurry of excitement getting ready for church. The girls got to wear their new dresses. We were all in some shade of teal. (Aunt Jutem got us started by buying Alexa and Savannah's Easter dress while she was here visiting) The boys had new shirts and everyone had new sandals. (Buying shoes for this crew is CRAZY!!) Now of course new clothes was not our entire focus but it was fun to dress up and we all don't get brand new clothes that often.

By time we woke up and started getting ready, Jay had already been at church for a couple of hours! Our church has an Easter sunrise service (5:30am). Umm yeah we won't be making this a tradition until the kids are older! ;) So we showed up for Sunday school at a more reasonable hour of 9:30am and then church at 11.

The Easter bunny comes some time while we are at church to fill the kids baskets. That way our first focus of the day is Our Lord and Savior and then we come home for fun and games. This year we also invited family over to celebrate Savannah's birthday as well. (see next post)

The kids got bubbles, hula hoops, jump ropes, a nerf gun, Jadon got a big bouncy ball and of course there was plenty of candy and chocolate!

After the enjoying of baskets, family came over and we had a yummy meal and celebrated Savannah's birthday. Then we went with my sister and her family to a nearby park and she took pictures of the kids and our families. They turned out beautiful! I will post some here soon.

When we came back all the kids participated in an egg hunt out in our back yard.

This is a picture of my mom (My dad was sick and couldn't make it) with 11 out of 14 of their grand kids.

I didn't take many pics of the egg hunt. However I made Tyler and Anastasia pose for this one. Because as they were all looking for eggs I was thinking back to their first Easter and them looking for eggs together. Now look at them!!! Love you guys and thanks for indulging me in this picture!

This is a collage my sister made of some of the Easter pictures! I LOVE IT!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!!!
