Easter 2013

We had a nice, quiet weekend, and it was wonderful. Due to our schedule, this is the only weekend we have/will have nothing going on for…a while. So we enjoyed spending time at home, hanging out together.

Our church started having Easter services on Friday, so we decided that would be our time to go. It was much easier to get us all dressed and ready in the afternoon than trying to make it happen in the morning, that’s for sure!

As usual, it was freezing. And raining. So we didn’t get to dress for warm weather. But since Caedmon had new shorts he wanted to wear, he went ahead and wore them. That was not a battle worth fighting.


Oh, and flip flops. Yes, his toes are hanging off the end of his pair from last year. I’m about to fix that. Keep reading.

Honor’s dress is one I bought for her on clearance at the end of the summer last year. I can’t wait for her to get to wear it more!


Trying to get these two to take a picture together gets more challenging every day.


(Also notice the obligatory Oz photobomb.)

Easter baskets are always different around here. We don’t go crazy, but want them to be fun. This year, both kids were in need of new flip flops/shoes, so they got those in their Easter buckets. Some kids would be upset about that, but not mine. They love shoes.


I think my favorite thing this year was this Bible we got for Caedmon.


They were excited to see their stuff.


It took her a while to decide to dig in.


See? I told you he’d love the flip flops.


We had to hunt eggs in the house because it was rainy and yucky outside. But Caedmon and Honor didn’t seem to mind.

This was her first year to hunt eggs, and I think she enjoyed herself.


Caedmon was a pro.


As evidenced by the full bucket above and the candy haul below. (Don’t worry, I tested it. It’s safe.)


Once Honor figured out there was candy in the eggs, she was all about them.


And then, it was time to eat the candy. The fun part!


Easter candy is the best. Always has been, always will be.


I am grateful for our reason for celebrating Easter. Without Jesus’s sacrifice and the empty tomb, it would all be for nothing.

“But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.””

Matthew 28:5-6
