Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter Sunday. It was worshipful, joyful and fun. I left church this morning with my mind set on He is alive and I'm forgiven. I love that certain holidays really make us stop and ponder time periods of Jesus life. Thoughts that might otherwise pass me by, because I've heard and read them my entire life. Obviously Easter really gives us time to think about Jesus' death and resurrection and what that means for us. Worship was a sweet, sweet time at church, which is nothing unusual. We went home for a quick lunch and then put the boys down for a nap. We had to wake them a little before 4pm so we could head to my sisters house for the evening. The little boys all hunted Easter eggs and my parents were there to join us for the fun. We had a great dinner and lots of good family time. I LOVE family time! And here are several pictures from our day:
I think these are some of the most handsome little boys in the whole wide world! This picture melts my heart. :)
This was taken right before we left for church. Are you wondering how in the world we got a picture with 4 smiling faces without an extra set of hands to snap the picture and act goofy for the boys? I'll let you in on our secret. All credit goes to Jeremy.
And the start of the egg hunt at my sister's house.
Pax, Holden, Carson and Cameron.

To top the night off for mister Holden, he got to open an early birthday gift from Uncle Dan, Aunt Amy, Carson and Cameron since they won't be able to make it to the party this time.He got the game Elefun and a new playdough toy. He loves playdough! I know that this year he is going to LOVE opening presents. He definitely knows what to do these days. I can't believe that my little boy will be 3 years old one week from today! Crazy how time flies.

Happy Easter friends! I hope your heart is full with the realization of all Christ has done for you. We're white as snow because of Him! And that should be celebrated everyday!
