Easter Bunny?

Are a 9 and 10 year old too old for an Easter basket? Mine don't seem to think so, although it's getting harder and harder to find stuff for their baskets.
Of course, they awoke much too early for me, but I made it to the table before they did, to capture their joy.

Don't be fooled, however, my children do really know the real meaning of Easter. Where would we all be without the wonderful gift Jesus gave us? What a sacrifice!

Since Daddy LOVES breakfast, especially on a grand scale, we all got ready early and made our way to church for the Easter breakfast before the service.

First, we had to take our annual Easter photo. I haven't missed a year since they were babies. They were not so thrilled, though.

So, we made it to church, and Daddy filled his plate HIGH with breakfast items. We went to the service, and later Grandma and Grandpa Yoder's for lunch. It was good, but very filling!

Around 4 ish, we headed to Grandma and Grandpa Sommers' for an Easter egg hunt and supper with Great Grandma and Grandpa Leatherman.

I'm not sure why Grandma Sommers made Grace and Ev wear these outfits, but oh well. They raced around the yard

looking high, looking

cute?? I mean, low...

and gathering as many as they could find.

while Daddy and Great Grandpa shot the breeze.

Then we all headed inside so Grace and Ev could sort out their loot...

and we could all eat supper.

It was a long day, a beautiful one, but a long one.


  1. I'll bet Brent is excited that he has been on your "BLOG" several times! :)

    You must take your camera w/you at all times. Your pics are really good.

    How are your pigs coming along. Monday we finally got all of them. there are 6 this yr!! lots of scooping to do this yr! yuck

  2. Brent was excited to be on more, he thinks he's not represented enough on this blog!
    I do take my camera everywhere. It fits great in a pocket in my purse.
    We got our pigs last Thurs at an auction and they are so little to me! We only got one per kid this time since we really didn't make much on the 2nd pig last time. We also have a spare, just in case, that we'll butcher. :-(


Thanks for commenting...I love reading what you all have to say!
