Christ is the Reason

I am grateful to know that Jesus lived. Died. And lived again all for me! And you! And that we can all be together someday. xo

These are some fun snap shots from our Easter morning.
I {heart} the colored piles of eggs.
The Easter Bunny hid Max's eggs extra hard this year. That will teach him to taunt the Easter bunny.
The boys were instructed, "Do not wake Mom or Dad until after 7:30am." Totally worked. They were showered. Dressed. And playing card games when I went down to fetch them.
Love this sweet boy. Pretty sure he is surveying the goods! Lots of eggs for everyone!

I {heart} tender moments!
Beautiful girl.

CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY!! {heart her}

Only Lola would walk around all morning with Jacq's flippers!

easter goodies

I think I love the Easter holiday more than I love Christmas. I love Easter baskets.. i love it that each kid has a specific egg color they hunt for.. I love egg hunts .. with mostly loose change and hardly any candy (I think we used a half a bag of candy). I like to "welcome us some spring time." We have had Easter swimming baskets for as long as I can remember. This tradition melts my heart. I am so ready for the snow to melt and the sunshine to come out when Easter rolls around. Happy Day!

Easter fun times.

Easter preparation are underway in full force at our house. Grandma Watson had an Easter Egg dying party at her house.. so that left the making cookies to us. While the boys were out the girls whipped up some yummy sugar cookies.. Lots of fun with these two bakers.

Then it was time for the decorating!

Do you think there are enough sprinkles? {he he} I remember when i was the major micro manager.. "oh ... oh.. careful.." "Not too much frosting.." There was a time I did all the frosting. "What the sprinkles?" "Don't mix!" "WOW! Holy sprinkles!" Now I put everything on the table and let them have at it. Amazing how time changes us. It was so stressful to manage their creativity. Now I just clean up after it. Easter fun from last year.. HERE!
