Easter.

I look forward to Easter as soon as Christmas ends. Christmas and Easter are so intertwined that I can't think of one without the other. Caleb and I spent the month of March reading, Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross and doing a devotional with the kids called, Why Easter. (both we would highly recommend in preparing your hearts for Easter) 
Each year since I came to know Christ Easter has grown more dear to me. I am more and more overwhelmed at God's love for me and what it cost for Jesus to die on the cross for my sins. 
This year was one of my favorite Easter's. I'm not sure why. It was probably one of the more quiet simple Easter's we've had, but it was so special to me. 

We spent the weekend remembering and celebrating.
 We had a wonderful Good Friday service.
We dyed eggs and did our Easter egg hunt on Saturday.
Then Sunday we woke up and Caleb made egg's Benedict. (something he grew up doing) 
I hid the children's Easter baskets and they followed a trail of eggs to find them.
We went to church.
And then had a delicious meal at my parents.

 (we keep a cross in the yard for the weeks leading up to Easter. On Good Friday we drape it in black. Then on Sunday we wrap it in purple.)




I had quite the time getting a picture of the children. I decided it wasn't something worth getting frustrated on Easter about, so I let it go....so this is all I've got.







(Vanessa wore a dress that my mom made when I was little and Amelia wore a hand-me down from my sister Abigail.)
