Easter 2012

We had a great Easter beginning with our church egg hunt on Saturday and then having Easter celebrations all day on Sunday. This year I feel like Ivy understood more of the true meaning of Easter than ever before which is so exciting to me. We read through the Easter story in her Children's Bible several times and she had so much to say...
"So he's not still dead??"
"Does he still have nails in his hands?"
"Is he still friends with those boys? (the disciples)"
This is a lot more than she understood last year. I want my children to know that Easter is such a wonderful day that promises so much for us. And I hope that year after year, that becomes clearer to them. Jesus died for us, for you, and for the criminals hanging on the crosses next to him.
His love wins.... every day.... year after year!

Enjoy our Easter weekend in pictures:

Egg hunt with friends.... Ivy was shocked to find treats in the eggs!! She thought only the Easter bunny did that :)

Discovering Tula's Easter basket from the Bunny

Ivy was excited that even the Easter Bunny is ready for summer with HOT, PINK goggles!

All ready for church.... a little chilly outside!

Daddy and his girls

Tula LOVES her chocolate.... and this is her face demanding chocolate after a disappointing sweet tart!

Nana and Pops surprised the girls with new outside toys!
Ivy loved testing out her new scooter~

And Tula's car has been a hit..... we enjoyed several walks with it this week!

I hope you all had a great Easter celebrating that He is ALIVE, too!
