He's Awake!

Yesterday was Easter, in case you didn't know. And in the words of Lilly, Easter is the day that "Jesus wakes up!" Easter is my favorite church service of the year. I love all the songs, the joyous feeling, the beautiful dresses and outfits on everyone!

Our church is at 9:15 am, so doing the non-church Easter stuff beforehand is hard. We don't have a lot of time for egg and basket hunts amongst breakfast, showers, hair, clothes, getting to church...So this year, we left a note for the Easter Bunny to see if he would mind coming back during the day when we're at church and the various family gatherings. It worked great because EB was happy to have one less house to do in the middle of the night and it gave us plenty of time in the morning! Win-win!

Saturday night we colored our eggs and made them the most beautiful eggs we had ever seen...until next year, anyway.

After church on Sunday morning, we headed to my Aunt and Uncle's house for a yummy dinner and outdoor egg hunt.

After dinner and egg hunting, we went to Andy's aunt's for the afternoon and played games while catching up with everyone. When we got home, the Easter Bunny had been here and the girls searched for their eggs and baskets!
