Before the pictures, and the candy, and the egg part of this Easter Blog I want to reflect on the time our family had celebrating what Easter is all about. The Thursday night before Easter our church did a walkthrough journey of the life of Jesus titled "Portraits of Grace." This journey was a hands on experience to help you to see, smell, hear what Jesus went through during his time on Earth. This put your heart and mind in perspective to be able to reflect upon these events throughout Easter weekend. We also attended our Good Service Friday night that took us to the place of OUR SAVIOR dying on the cross and being buried in the tomb.
Praise the Lord though on Sunday morning we CELBRATED that my God is bigger than death and a tomb and they can not hold him down. On the third day he AROSE!!
Ready for Easter Party Day
Party Day with friends at Mrs. Kay's house
"Check out this little light up chick."
After party day Caleb and I snuck over to our neighbors house and "Egged" their yard. We filled their yard full of candy filled eggs and then rang their doorbell and left them a note letting them know that they had been "Egged." Of course, Caleb wanted to hunt the eggs he had just hidden so we stayed to help clean up our egging mess!
On Saturday, we went to our church's Easter Egg Hunt. Feelings haven't changed very much since last year on how we feel about the Easter Bunny.
He was a Pro at finding the Easter Eggs
Checking to see what was inside the egg
"Look, I got LOTS and LOTS of eggs!"
He loves his cousin Aubrey
Saturday evening, we had a little impromptu Easter egg hunt with some friends from church
The boys are on the search for the prize egg
Looking serious about this Easter Egg hunting thing
Look who found the Prize egg!!!
We ended our egg hunt with reading the Easter story and teaching our sweet kiddos what Easter is all about!
The Easter Bunny found our new house
Checking out his Easter Basket goodies
Just reading his new dinosaur book the Easter bunny brought

We all coordinated this year in our yellow and blue Easter attire!
After church, we went to Uncle Billy and Aunt Regina's house for Easter lunch and the annual Easter egg hunt for the little kid and the little kids at heart :)
"I found an orange one"
We ended our Easter evening with a prayer time at church on Sunday night and then it was back to work on Monday!
