Happy Easter!

"He is not here. He has risen, just as He said!"
Matthew 28:6

Last night we went to our church's HUGE musical production of the life of Christ that they do every other year. It was incredible!

The crowd on Palm Sunday.

The Crucifixion

The Ascension of Christ

We had a weekend long Easter celebration 'round these parts. We went over to Jon's parents' house for Easter dinner on Friday night, because it was the only time the whole family could be there.

Jake loves his cousins.

I'm sad that it's blurry.

Then we went in the backyard to hunt some eggs.

I found one!

Wow! This basketball is shaped like an egg!
Or is it an egg that looks like a basketball?

Egg hunting is fun!

Checking out the findings.

Look Mama! A football!

Jake's bounty. Including a green dyed
egg with a J on it from Alyssa Kate.

Mimi made cute Easter basket cupcakes for dessert.

Eatin' some Easter ham.
I edited his bib from last year...

Then Saturday afternoon...

Jake likes his bunny ears.

Jack wondered where his bunny ears were.

Hey up there!

And Sunday after church...

I'm ready to pounce on you!
Oh, and this is my Easter basket from Mimi!

He got two swimsuits, a play outfit, and a stuffed bunny.

Sometimes it's fun to ride your Easter basket.

He enjoyed it a little more than last year.

It's funny how baggy this 12 month shirt is!

Hey Mama.

The Easter Bunny came to our house too!

Checking out the gifts from E.B.

Can we go take these for a test drive?

Jake was more interested in playing
with Snoopy than posing with Snoopy.

Snoopy shrank since last year.


  1. Cute pictures! Happy Easter!

  2. Thank you for the great photos. I was not able to watch while you were taking the ones of the children out front and enjoy seeing them. Although I know Jake has grown considerably, those last year vs. this year really demonstrated how much he has grown. He is such a big boy now.
