More Easter 2013

Sunday morning we took our time at home and prepared for the busy day ahead of us.  Usually we go to the Sunrise Service, but this year we decided to stay home and take it a bit easier. The kids go all dressed up in their Easter outfits and we headed off to church.  (I didn't get any pictures of the kids all dressed up as my camera was at Grandma and Grandpa Schlatter's house from the day before.  But, you will see Abi's outfit, and if you imagine the boys in khakis then you'll pretty much have the idea.)

After lunch at Grandma and Grandpa's, we all headed over to our house where the Farmer and his brother had hidden all the eggs around our house for the Cousin's Egg Hunt.  Following are some pictures of that:


Kids gathering around the building to wait their turn.

Ethan gathering his eggs.
(he had already lost his yellow bucket so we had to use a sack instead)

Here is Abi.  Her dress was a yellow bling chiffon with a linen skirt and white shrug.

The guys really hid the eggs well.  They went ALL over the yard trying to find them.  


They even had to go under the trees and around the tall grass behind the chicken coop.

The Farmer and I were very thankful for the blessings of the day.  After everyone gave up on finding eggs, there was a time of playing with the bat and ball, and then everyone went home and took naps.  It was so nice to have a relaxing holiday and to remember that Jesus came and died to forgive us.  Forgive us of our sins, our mistakes, and our weaknesses.
