Easter Weekend 2008....

We had a busy Easter weekend....Does it seem like Easter hopped up on anyones else this year? It came and went before we could blink.

Saturday was "egg"trodinary we got up and went to an egg hunt in our neighborhood with our friends the Heugly's, we had a blast. The sun was out and it was so much fun to watch Landon collecting the eggs...that was before he figured out that they contained candy. He quickly started opening them one by one to get the treat inside. Jackson and Ayden had a great time hunting for eggs too. That night we dyed eggs as a family trying to keep Landon from cracking all of them to see what treat was inside and chucking it when he found nothing but "yuck" inside. It was a fun family time....

Sunday was a busy day, the boys awoke at the crack of dawn to see what the Easter bunny has brought them. We enjoyed honey baked ham, fruit and cinnamon apple French toast for breakfast and scampered off to get to church on time. After church we too a road trip to Grammy and Grammpy's in Woodland Hills. We were shocked that they still had 2 1/2 feet of snow still! We had a wonderful family dinner and I think I held baby Cohen almost the whole time...he is so dang cute! After the long ride home and baths we settled in to watch Enchanted which the Easter bunny brought. Jackson was the only one to make through the whole movie.....It was a wonderful Easter!

We are all so thankful for all of our family and friends near and far but most of all, for our Savior Jesus Christ who gave us such a wonderful gift that we remember this time of year and for his resurrection. It is hard with all of the fun things of Easter like, the Easter Bunny, candy, and eggs to take time to remember why we truly celebrate. I am so thankful that we had the opportunity go to church together as a family and remember this special gift.
