Easter!

Easter weekend started off with a quick trip to the city wide egg hunt. We got there right before it started and 10 minutes later we were on our way home. The kids had a fun time and it is definitely part of our Easter tradition. That afternoon, Dan's brother and his family came over to visit and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins! Saturday night we dyed eggs and ironed clothes for 8:30 church! Crazy! Sunday morning the Easter bunny had visited and the kids found their baskets and some hidden eggs in the family room. We got dressed fast and took pictures in the matching clothes and amazingly we were only 10 minutes late! Easter dinner was ham, cheesy potatoes, jello, rolls and corn. I copied a cake my sister Amy had made and put my own little Easter basket twist on it. Overall, it was a fun day being together as a family and remembering the sacrifice that Christ made for us.
