Easter Day

Okay, one last Easter post for the year! The kids were so excited that the Easter Bunny was coming and couldn't wait to see their baskets on Easter morning. They got coloring books, books, toothbrushes (Dora and Lightning McQueen okay?!), Cars (Ty), the new Veggie Tales movie (Ansley), Veggie Tales Bible (Ty), fingerpaints (Ansley), and a few other little things. The Easter Bunny tried to be practical this year. :) On Easter Day Mom and Dad went to church with us and then we all went to eat lunch at Longhorn. Ansley didn't do so well at lunch, but aside from that it was a great day. That night we visited the Ethos church and loved it. It was a great Easter. I am so thankful that Christ rose and defeated death so that we could live. We tried to really start teaching the kids (especially Ty) about the true meaning of Easter this year. We used Easter books and these things called Resurrection Eggs. I would recommend them. Okay, the Easter posts have ended at last! Here are the pics from the day!

Church Easter Egg Hunt

Here are some pics from our church Easter Egg hunt at the Ezell's house. We had an egg hunt and a lunch. It was all really nice. The kids racked up once again!

Making Eggs

The kids and I had a blast making eggs this year. They are really starting to get into stuff like this and appreciate it. I love how having young kids gives me an excuse to do this kind of stuff. It is so much fun to see their excitement and watch them be creative. Here are a few fun pics!

Petty Family Egg Hunt

We had a very fun Easter Egg Hunt and lunch with the Petty family on April 4th. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and the kids had a great time. Ansley really got into hunting the eggs. This was the first egg hunt where she was really getting the idea. Ty racked up as well. They had a short candy free-for-all after the hunt. It is the highlight of the year for Ty I am pretty sure! What fun memories for the kiddos. This is becoming a yearly tradition I think!

My Little Sunshine

Right before we left the house.
"Hiding behind the trees...."
Daddy got to come!
Can't you tell how much he loves me? :)
Ansley had to try on the sunshine!
Ty had his preschool program at church on April 2nd. It was soooo cute! The kids in his class sang "Mr. Sun" and "God's Promise". The theme of the program was "God Keeps His Promises". It was centered around the story of Noah and the Ark. The kids were adorable. I was so proud of Ty. He sang and did the hand motions. He did such a great job. It always makes me want to cry when he does stuff like this because it makes me realize how big he is getting and how fast he is growing, but it also makes me so happy to see him grow and learn. He is a precious gift! I look forward to many more of these types of things with he and Ansley!

Preschool Easter Egg Hunt and Party

Here are a few pics from Ty's Easter egg hunt and party at Preschool. He had a blast. He found tons of eggs, but thankfully didn't notice when they divided them evenly among the kids while they were eating! Ansley had a hard time watching the egg hunt and not participating, but then she got party snacks. It was a fun time. Ty is always up for a sugar cookie!
