Easter Sunday!

Easter morning at church!
Autumn & Cayla

Sisterly love!
Easter baskets for the girlies!  A few years ago we bought them each a Longaberger basket and we re-use them each year.  This year the silly things decided they wanted something more disposable.  OK, Dollar Store baskets for everyone :)

They both received new Bibles in their Easter baskets.  Autumn's is the aqua and Cayla received the purple.  They are so pretty, and it was special for me to get to inscribe their names, the date and occasion for which they received them.  Tomorrow we'll head to the Lifeway store to look for cute Bible covers.  I hate to cover them up, but I don't want them to get ruined.  In case you're wondering, they're (HCSB) Holman version!

Ahhhh....the joys of finding an egg :)

It took them about 20 minutes to find all 115 (roughly) eggs.

Let the egg opening commence!


She was very excited to find money in some of her eggs!
Late afternoon we headed to Grammy and Poppy's for another egg hunt, and dinner.
So proud of herself for finding all her eggs!
Their cousins were there too.  It was so fun to watch all of them having a blast, hunting eggs.
Caitlin - ever the photogenic one!
Ben & Autumn!
Jim (Poppy), Uncle Kevin (Cory's brother), and Cory!
Aunt Andrea and Cory!
My wonderful mother in law Barb, and her mom, great grandma Helen.  What a blessing to get to enjoy great grandma this year at Easter!
Cayla, Ben, Caitlin and Autumn post egg-hunt.  What a wonderful Easter celebration!

My pictures posted kind of wonky. I tried to fix it, but it wouldn't cooperate. I figure it's no big deal, but wanted to explain why it's so 'off'!

I love Autumn's outfit! You told me about it, but I didn't get to see it. Definitely save for a hand-me-down.:) My kids have Longaberger baskets, too, and I wouldn't let them take them outside-mean mom! Looks like fun was had by all.
