Hoppy Easter!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! And remember the Lord has risen!

Our Easter started off at 6:30am when the boys woke up and wanted to see what the Easter Bunny had brought them. I didn't get a picture of it this year but the boys each got a chocolate bunny, Drew got a Nerf football and Gabe got 2 Star Wars action figures. Both were very happy.

Then we were off to church. Jeff and the boys attended the service while I help set up for a special "children's church" program. When the kids came to us, they heard the story of "The Box", made tissue paper flowers for the cross and wrote in Thank You cards for our heroes serving overseas. It was lots of fun.

Then we came home, had lunch - then the EASTER EGG HUNT! The boys couldn't wait! Jeff went outside and hid 20 candy-filled eggs for each of them. Actually, two eggs contained $5 each and were labeled with their names. They had a blast running all over the front and back yard looking for the eggs.

We had perfect weather and the trees and flowers were absolutely beautiful. Later, Drew went to a friend's house for a sleepover and Gabe played outside. He has always loved to swing.

Hope your Easter was a blessing, too!
