Easter Monday

Henry's 2nd Easter was such a fun time. We loved celebrating all week with him. Last year he was too little to even sit up or partake in any of the activities. What a joy it has been to watch this little guy grow over the past year! He is my little bunny.

When Samuel was about this age he had an Easter outfit that almost mirrored Henry's. I should have scanned in the photo and compared them for you, but I am a slacker! Julie said she wished she could still put 13 year old Samuel in these little outfits, and I know I will feel the same when Henry is 13. They are so precious looking and short lived. I am soaking it up while I can!



Th proverbial Easter morning family photo. This was a self portrait with bad lighting and a camera that is on the brink of death, I fear. Despite the lighting and ill camera, I thought we cleaned up pretty well for Easter Sunday!




I love sharing Easter traditions with my sweet boy. Teaching him about Jesus this year with his little toddler Easter CD has been so fun and showing him how to hunt eggs has been a hoot. I realize he will remember none of it this year, but we are teaching him how we do Easter so next year. and the next it will sink in and stick!




My handsome Easter boys. The EB came to see them both and left lots of goodies in their baskets. My BFF, Melissa finds it fascinating that I make a basket for Randall. I told her Randall is a rotten mess...and he actually got more in his basket than Henry did! I always get a basket from Randall too, but this year I asked to have my nails and toes painted instead of a basket. I was tickled pink with my EB gift too (I got pink nails...get it?! ha). When we got married I set stocking and basket expectations for my man, and he has not yet let me down! Train them up in the way they should go...applies for husbands also, not just children!




Henry loved going through his little basket and we loved watching him. It is so true that you don't have to spend much to please a child. What fun to watch him enjoy things from the dollar bin at Target! ha....of course, he thinks the EB brought them. Sweet baby!!





And look at this princess in her dress! Julie sent this picture of Anna before church yesterday. I almost passed out when I saw what a beautiful, big girl she is in this photo! I loved, loved, loved her dress and pearls. I know Julie has Easter photos of the boys to share and an Easter recap from their house. Aunt Abby just had to show of her best girl!



Happy Easter Monday!
