Easter 2011

We had a fun and busy Easter weekend!

After running around all day on Friday, we decided to spend the day at home on Saturday. I still had a nasty cold, and was hoping that a quiet day would help. It was our first Saturday without plans in many months, and we needed that break! That afternoon, the kids and I baked some cut-out cookies.

The kids were so excited to sit out their baskets for the Easter Bunny to hide. Dylan left a picture and a cookie for the Easter Bunny in his basket.

In the morning, they both immediately spotted the evidence that the Easter Bunny had been here!

The kids woke up early, but they were too excited to go back to bed!

They followed the trail of footprints, and found their baskets of goodies!

We always start off Easter Sunday with the Easter service at church, but had to skip it this year. I was so congested, and was having a really rough time with the morning sickness. We ended up having a quiet morning while the kids played with the new toys the Easter Bunny brought.

We spent the rest of the day visiting our family. I honestly felt miserable all day, but I put a smile on my face, and tried my best to enjoy the day. It was really nice to see everybody!

The kids had a great time playing with Grant's cousin's kids at their Great Grandma's house!

They all crowded around Great Grandma Ross to see something really cute!

Dylan and Lexie loved snuggling with their grandparents and great-grandmas!

We went 4 different places yesterday, and despite a few bouts of acting hyper, they did really well!

We had a lot of candy and goodies to bring home from all those stops! Even Nugget got a basket!

We didn't get home until way past bedtime. The kids quickly got ready for bed, and we settled down to read "The Easter Story." Grant and I finally collapsed on the couch, and spent the rest of the evening watching Jesus Christ Superstar. It was a great way to end our Easter Sunday!

*A big congratulations to our good friends Gary and Tracy, who welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Charlotte, at 1:45 AM on Easter!
