Easter 2012

Happy Easter!

“Our God is not dead, He’s alive, HE’S ALIVE!”

We had a wonderful Easter yesterday!  It actually felt like a normal Easter!

(besides missing family!)

The night before we’d dyed some eggs, and the boys were SO excited to eat them for breakfast. (though they all took one bite and decided they were disgusting! 🙂 )


We also had Risen rolls, and thanks to a wonderful family who sent us an easter package, we even had marshmallows for the center.  The boys thought the empty rolls were great, and we read the easter story.

It was really fun last week (Palm Sunday), on our way into church I noticed they had these HUGE palm tree branches bordering the door, and I’d wished I’d had my camera so I could share it with you.  Well this week I remembered, just in case they had left them there for Easter.  Sure enough I was not disappointed! 🙂


I thought it looked beautiful, and it was a great visual for me of the palm branches that were laid on the ground for Jesus!

We enjoyed a wonderful church service and lunch afterward.

Then headed home for a little rest till our friends arrived and the candy hunt began! 🙂

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter as well, I can’t wait to see pictures of you all in your Easter best!!


Happy Easter!
