Easter :)

Oh how I love Easter! God's salvation plan is so amazing; it makes me so thankful, so in awe of Him and His power to do anything (like raising Jesus from the dead!), and so glad that His plan is perfect.
It's so great to be able to tell and retell the wonderful Easter story with the girls in the days preceding Easter. I had planned to do a really great Easter project with them before Easter but ordered the book I needed too late, but I still want to do it even though it's after Easter...stay tuned for pictures, hopefully soon. ;)
We also had a great time singing about Jesus' death &'s part of one of my favorite's, In Christ Alone:
In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

Easter morning

Celebrating with family. :)

Grandpa telling the Easter story.

Time for the Easter egg hunt!

Heading in to check out what they found... was empty! That person got a special basket, which included candy, a stuffed animal, and a sign saying "He is not here. He has risen!" What a cute idea that was. :)
What a cute, goofy girl! :)

the girls looked so cute on easter . . . gloves - precious! fun idea with the empty egg. Mark's side did something fun with the eggs too. There were series of verses in some of the eggs and when we read through them in order they went through the Easter story. When you read a verse - you got your Easter basket. I think the kids thought it was very fun.
