My favorite holiday by far is Easter. I love the spring time, I love the eastery colors and the tulips blooming everywhere, I love to coordinate my family's outfits (I know its dorky, but it was always a tradition in my family growing up. A tradition I loved then and still do!). But most of all, I love WHY we celebrate Easter. HE ROSE, people! Jesus rose from the dead! And because of this, we can have eternal life in heaven. I know this is not usually the theme of my blog posts, but I just want to say that if you have never heard the Easter story, don't believe it or think it is simply "just a story", I STRONGLY encourage you to dig a little deeper or ask around. What you find might change your life!
Our Easter celebration started with a beautiful church service (we actually made it to 8am service. Yes, pigs were flying as we walked in to the church.) Lee's parents went with us. Then we had breakfast and an egg hunt at my mom's house. The kids loved hunting eggs. They wanted to do it again and again. After naps, we headed to my aunt's house and celebrated with my extended family. We all had a great time. There was even a 'minute to win it' competition. Fun times!
Here are a few random pics from the day. In no particular order.
