Easter 2018

Well I missed sharing this event remotely close to the day as well. Oh well, enjoy the glance back.

Easter was a bit rough. I had a few sick kids the week before so there was question of us going anywhere or doing anything. But we managed.20180401_090035

In the morning we did the usual church service. Of course the girls had to have Easter clothes and dresses. Even the boys dressed in their Sunday best to make a nice showing. The twins also helped server Easter breakfast.20180401_093426

Of course we took tons of dressed up pictures! The rest are at the bottom of the post! (Zander is in white)20180401_081500

I had a chat with the Easter bunny and this year everyone got a book with their goodies. Big smiles for everyone there.20180331_225253

We then had our second Easter egg hunt of the season (we did a previous one end of March). The Novak’s were invited to a larger hunt and told to bring us along. It was quite the event with lots of amazing prizes. Everyone did rather well.20180401_161241

After the hunt it was time to go to the Novak’s for dinner. Good food, good friends… Snoopy! It was a great day. Family isn’t always blood related. Sometimes they are friends who you couldn’t imagine living without!20180401_171344

Happy Easter All!

Our Easter was more of an Easter weekend. Just chock full of fun and activity. So much so that we were burned out and exhausted for school on Monday!DSCF6166

On Saturday all my hard work of stuffing Easter eggs was put to good use. We spent the morning at the YMCA. Well, some of us did. The door on the van was left ajar and the battery dead. So in between Ken smoking Sunday’s ham at the Schwartz’s (thanks so much for the loan of your smoker) I took Gavin, Echo and Trinity to the YMCA. Gavin and Trinity for club and Echo for swimming with Mommy.

Once the van was jumped and filled back up with kit and kids we headed off to visit our very amazing homeschool friends. Aimee had set up a rather amazing egg hunt all over their woodsy yard.20170415_142522

IMG_20170415_211756_985We played, watched a movie, ate wonderful food and snacked happily while we visited. It is such an easy situation on all adults involved as the kids really do entertain themselves. Aimee and I even ducked out to Walmart to pick up a few things.

That had us home in the evening and into bed so that we could be fresh and pressed for Easter service. Trinity even had her first communion! Everyone clapped for her when they were told before service.20170416_115017

IMG_20170416_122008_696The girls had their usual fancy hats and new dresses. I think we all cleaned up rather nicely.20170416_091740

We had Easter baskets and goodies from the Easter Bunny to enjoy.20170415_235233

20170416_132743It was a wonderful way to celebrate with friends who have become family. I don’t think we could have had a better plan… well except for having the battery in the van die.20170416_150132

Happy Happy Easter!

Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Hallelujah!

Or… Happy Bunny Egg Day!101_7118

We started Easter with dressing EVERYONE up for Easter 2014 pictures. Trinity and Echo wore MATCHING dresses… too cute! The boys their Aunty Holly shirts. Not a bad looking crew, if I do say so myself!101_7090

101_7105101_7109bWe also had our Gammie/Mommy/Daddy/Easter Bunny baskets to open and rummage through.101_7091

101_7092101_7094101_7095After the family photo op we headed off to church for Easter Sunday service… a bit of a challenge but we had a good time. Echo and Ken snuck out to spend time in the nursery and make new friends. I worked with the twins on reading hymns and seeing the changes in the music written on the page.101_7120

When we got home the cousins were already there so it was right into the Easter baskets. The 7 of them were crazy happy to jump in and get those presents opened!101_7121

101_7122101_7125101_7128After gifts Aunty Judy, Uncle Jim and cousins Robbie and Jessica got here and the kids ran wild until dinner.101_7133

We had one of the most delicious hams ever. It was a GREAT Easter.101_7138
