Easter

Easter was especially special this year.  We had a great time being part of The Passion of the King and seeing it again really served as such an important reminder of what Christ did for us.  Plus, the kids are older and were more into it, plus the weather was divine.  Much of our family was together for the day, and that's a good thing.  This year Easter was kind of split into two days because we attended church on Saturday night and had everyone over on Sunday.  Thanks for the family pic, Meg!
Baby's first Easter...
Cousins!
More cousins!

I was out of the house all of Sunday morning.  When I arrived home, I found the girls had dressed themselves AND done their own hair.
More cousins!  Alayna, Aiden, Rocco
This struck me as funny...what a fuss people make about babies!  (with good reason :)
Avery reading the book Grandma got her...Amanda giving Great-Grandpa hugs
Uncle Nathan put together a scavenger hunt for the big 11 year-olds. 
The prizes at the end were iTunes gift cards...oh, how times have changed!
We were pleased to have my sister's in-laws, who we count as friends, join us as well.
As the day quieted down, the girls sat down to talk wedding.  Sienna (yellow) is getting married in June and Sarah (my SIL in gray) in the wedding coordinator.  And me?  I just like anything to do with weddings.  :)
Meanwhile, the boys played.  :)  A fun-filled family day with warm sun...priceless!
For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
Romans 5:10
