Easter 2014

 4 baskets!  A certain pink one is quite larger than the rest!  :)

Egg hunting time!  We were unable to go to church on Resurrection Day because Andrew had thrown up once Wednesday night and once Friday afternoon so we didn't want to share potential sick germs.  Everyone else has been doing well, which we are so grateful to the Lord for that!  Andrew seems to be back to normal, too!

I spy a tiger egg!  Courtney and Kyle (my sibling in laws) were so sweet to send us 40 plastic eggs filled with candy, gummies, and stickers for the boys!  

Found one!

My mom sent Hailey bug ears!!!!

We took the family to this really pretty park out in the middle of nowhere, which is down the road from us!

We had a very blessed day!  We also hid Easter baskets that my MIL and FIL sent and gave them sweet gifts that my mom sent.  We read the resurrection story and cooked out steaks.  We made Death by Chocolate and hand delivered some to a couple of my coworkers.  We ended up at a second playground in Knoxville after that.  We watched Easter Veggie Tales.  We enjoyed our day together.  We took time to remember how truly important Easter Sunday is.  Because He is risen, we know we will have eternal life if we believe in Him.  We always try to teach the children what it's all about and that the other things are just fun celebrations of what is truly important.  The most important day of the year, that and Christmas.
John 6:40 - And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
