I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter. I know I certainly did! Our Easter festivities began when Gavin woke up at 7am to see if the Easter Bunny had came yet. I talked him into waiting until Carley got up. The both found their baskets on the table. We got dressed and headed to the park for our Church Egg Hunt. We began by telling the true meaning of Easter. Then, we had the our egg hunt and had lunch of hot dogs roasted on the grill. We really had a great morning. Even the Easter bunny was there for pictures.





Sunday morning, we all got ready in our Easter duds and went to church. Pastor Mark did an illustrated sermon with members of the kid's church acting out the parts. He gave alter call and there were 6 who came forward and gave their life to the Lord, including Carley. I was so proud. She had already asked God to come into her heart but had never went up the alter and wanted to do that. I tell you, that was enough to make my throat close up and tears come to my eyes.
Here they are in their Easter attire before church:



After church, we went to eat with friends, came home, took a nap, then got up to dye Easter eggs.





My family came over for Easter supper. We decided to make deviled eggs since it started raining and we weren't able to go outside to hunt eggs again. We really had a wonderful weekend. The kids had a great time. Most importantly, they both understand that Jesus died for our sins and He is Risen and Alive and Well! Happy Easter everyone!
