An Easter Brithday Celebration

The big day finally arrived! He is Risen! We celebrated in Austin with family from both sides. What a treat it was to have such a big gathering of family. We are so thankful to The Bumbas for hosting us all in their beautiful new home that was just perfect, especially for an Easter egg hunt. Their yard is so big they will probably be finding forgotten eggs for weeks to come. The dinner was delicious as were the desserts. Not only did we get to celebrate Christ rising, but it was a double celebration with Mimi's birthday. Which cake should we have? Both of course, as most did. What a fun day it was beginning with a great church service and ending with an egg hunt. How delightful it is to watch the kiddos so excited to find their eggs and open them. Love it!

Pink was the color of the day.  A big thanks to Mimi and Mack for everyone's Easter outfit!

Look at this beautiful outdoor feast!

Easter Parties

We had our own fun here at home on the days leading up to Easter with crafts during the day and family devotionals at bedtime. But the girls were eagerly counting down to the big day. Their school parties helped make the days go more quickly. Each class had their own egg hunts followed my a party in their classrooms which involved games, crafts, and chowing down. By the end of it, they were both sugared up on Peeps and cupcakes. So almost as soon as they got home, their Easter baskets suddenly disappeared for a couple of days. Hmmm...I wonder what happenend.
