Our Happy Easter

He lives! He lives!  What a reason to celebrate.  And boy have we done that today! It’s been a great family day for us.

The kids just waking up.  They were getting a bird's eye view of the goodies the Easter bunny left them…even though it doesn’t look it, they were pretty excited to get downstairs!

Checking out their baskets...

Then we had cinnamon rolls (a treat in our house!) and fruit for breakfast…

“Happy Easter Bunny” – as Jagger would say

IMG_9380Sloan just couldn’t part with her cool sunglasses and water shoes the Easter Bunny left her during breakfast

And I would say Rocbunny was enjoying his ears a little more this year Winking smile

Then we went to church where we had a wonderful worship service.  Until today, the kids have been doing great when we drop them off for Sunday school.  This was our 3rd Sunday back since RSV season ended and today they were a lot more unwilling to go in on their own!  I really hope that gets better soon.

We came home ate a BBQ lunch with my family and then napped.  Ahhh…who doesn’t LOVE a Sunday nap!  After naps, we had our annual Easter egg hunt on the compound.  Even Grandmama and Grandaddy came over to watch/help!

That Easter egg hunting is serious business! Ha!

All the participants

Madden’s a pro now

“Score!” – Rocco

IMG_9428Jagger decided he was only out for the golden egg (which he found by the way, with momma’s help) and ditched his basket!

After our hunt, we put on our swimsuits and played in the yard.  It was such a pretty day.


This cracked me up…Jagger was trying to drink the water sprinkling from the tree!


Oh and we have an exciting addition to the compound!  The geese that have decided to take up residence here…I call them Gary and Gloria, had two goslings this weekend!  It’s been so fun to watch.  The names are still being debated.  Any ideas? I tried to get a close picture, but I didn’t want to scare Gary and Gloria because they are real protective of their little ones right now.

If you look real close, you can see a little one behind the mama and one behind the daddy.  They are SO cute!

Well, that’s about it for our day today!  Hope y’all had a wonderful celebration with your families as well!  Happy Easter from us…


Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…” 1 Peter 1:3 (NIV)

He lives indeed!
