Easter 2011

We have had a wonderful Easter Sunday.  Drew started the morning by preaching at the community Sunrise Service at the local cemetery.  He came home right about the time the kids woke up.  The kids came down to find the Easter Bunny had left them Easter baskets filled with a few new games, some marshmallow treats and some new rain boots.   We had some yummy donuts for breakfast and then we got on our Easter best.  We headed to a wonderful church service that included the last scene of the Easter Drama, some amazing music, and a great sermon (I may be biased!)  After church we headed home and most of the Southerns came for Easter lunch.  Mimo, Aunt Anna, GrandBob and Suzette, Uncle Ed and Aunt Jamie, and Jamie’s parents Richard and Lorrie.  The Easter bunny came back to our house and hid some eggs outside so the kids had another Easter egg hunt.  We had a delicious lunch and good fellowship.  We played with bubbles outside and enjoyed the beautiful (almost hot) day!

Here is the day in pictures:

I don’t know how some people just put a couple pictures.  It’s not physically possible for me to do.  I take too many pictures!

Looks like a grand time!

I got NO pictures of the boys' baskets and CJ was so unthankful we took it away and tried again a couple of hours later. UGH! Unfortunately, nothing fun to blog about because of that. :( You live and learn I guess. :)
