Easter 2012

Today was a wonderful Sunday! We have done a great job, if I may say so myself, of keeping Easter all about Jesus this year. Chloe and Brody are really at the ages that they are soaking up the information we give them and that they hear elsewhere. So... focusing on what really matters in life has become of utmost importance. And that, dear friends, is JESUS!
That being said, we did celebrate the resurrection of Christ with Easter baskets this morning before we headed out to church. And then after church this evening, we had an amazing time with our small group by having Easter dinner and a huge egg hunt with them. It was awesome. 20 adults and 15 kids...We love this group of ours and truly consider them our extended family.

Easter baskets...kites, pillow pets, Barbie/Spiderman, sprinkler, beach towels, candy, and little goodies were what the kids had in their baskets
