Easter 2011

Our Easter was such a wonderful day! Saturday evening my mom came over to hang out with the girls and I, while Gerrad had a guys night. She gave the girls their gifts, and they spent the evening playing with them. Sunday morning my dad came over first thing before church, to give the girls, and Gerrad and I, our cards and $. We all collectively decided we'd put the cash in our 'Disney Savings,' which the girls have been working hard to build up. 

We headed off to church for breakfast, and an AMAZING service! Our service at church was a little different than normal, but I loved it. We sang quite a few songs, and just enjoyed worshiping with our friends. Our music team (which happens to be run by some of our best friends), rocked the house with a few solo performances yesterday (Carrie you had me in tears girl, so talented). We sang a new (to us) song that will definitely be one of my new favorites, Jesus Paid it All, such a great song! 

After church the girls got to hunt for eggs at church, they had such a wonderful time, and I got some super cute photos of them. We went to my in laws for lunch, and spent the afternoon there. Great food and great company! I've been wanting to take up golfing, so yesterday afternoon we ran home and got my clubs, and Gerrad taught me some basics. My in laws live on a golf course, so we hit balls from their backyard, onto the course. Needless to say, I played softball for WAY to many years. Gerrad probably said, no less than 800 times "Keep your head DOWN!" I didn't even realize I was pulling my head up, looking for where I wanted the ball to go, instead of looking AT the ball. WHOOPS! Thankfully Gerrad was SO patient with me, and constructively worked with me. I was a little nervous that we would not work well together during this experience, but he was great, God bless him, I'm a mess! I'm such a perfectionist, so not picking right up on it was driving me crazy! 

Here is a photo overload of our Easter! I realized from looking at these photos, we're facing the sun, a LOT, and that I'm ALWAYS the one behind the camera!

 Our first attempt at a family photo in our backyard, not my favorite, but cute of the girls!
 This girl doesn't have a 'regular' smile, it's always "CHEEEEEEESE" ha!
 Makenna, Macie, Addaline and Emma
 Addaline and Makenna checking out what's in some of their eggs
 Running through the field, they had such a wonderful time!
 Macie with a mouth full of gum. This girl pretty much boycotted the camera ALL DAY {sigh}

 Makenna, Addaline, Adelyn and Macie, love these girls!
 Melisa and I
 My best girls!
 Addaline and our niece Kamryn, aka double trouble ;)


 Kamryn just wanted to know what was in her eggs, she wasn't as worried about finding them as Addaline was. They were a hoot together!




I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, however you celebrated it. We are blessed beyond measure, and I'm so grateful for our amazing church, wonderful friends, and loving family!

Great pictures! My 10 year old cousin seems to have lost interest in hunting for eggs. She and our other 10 year old cousin helped me hide eggs for our 7 and 5 year old cousins on Saturday while at our great-aunt's house. Then yesterday she had no interest in someone hiding them (although that might have been because of the rainy Washington day). Still, we had an enjoyable Easter :)

Such a cute family! I'm glad you had such a wonderful Easter. Golf is freaking hard to learn when you've played Softball. I had a really hard time keeping my shoulders down and not trying to swing it like a bat! Good luck. It's certainly a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. Of course, I haven't played since I started having kids, but it's on my "to-do" list for the summer.
