Easter 2011

This year on Easter, I did something I have never been brave enough to do before.

I took the kids to the Sunrise Service.

And it wasn't bad. Not bad at all.

SO, I got myself up and mostly ready and then woke the kids at 6:00AM so they could see what was in their baskets.

I love to look on his face. He was so excited about everything!

His had two tshirts, a hat, "Matoy and Lightin Queen", a Thomas Movie and some candy. The girls really enjoyed going through their baskets, too.

I know that the basket is in her face, but I like the look on her face in this picture.

The girls got earrings, a movie: Allie got Because of Winn Dixie, Maggie got The Cat and The Hat, and Lillie got a Rockaberry Roll - a Strawberry Shortcake movie.

a tshirt.....

and a headband to match their Easter dresses.
and some candy...

I think they liked it!

After we had sufficiently looked at the spoils, we got dressed and headed out to the aforementioned service.

After the service, I took the kids to a local restaurant for breakfast.

A sweet couple from church had breakfast with us. It was such a nice time!

We them headed home and got dressed for church.
On our way out to church, our neighbor took a picture of the 5 of us - because {of course}

hubs was already at church.

After church, we had lunch with hubby's dad and wife.

After we had eaten and visited for a bit, they headed on home.

We rested for a bit and then had our own Egg Hunt with our neighbors.

Their grandchildren were in town, so we had a grand time.

Allie decided she was too big to hunt she helped hide!

Mr. Milt {our neighbor} helped hide the eggs too!

And they were off!!!!

Daddy hung out and talked with Mrs. Lucy {the other half of our neighbors}

Allie also helped the smaller kids get the eggs that were "too high"

out of the trees.

Miss Maggie

Little Mr. R.....

Miss Lillie

Do YOU see the hidden egg?

The aftermath.......

Our other neighbors, the M family came down to visit.

This is their sweet little boy. He and Brady hat their own "hunt".

Neither were very interested.

This is the 3 of them.

I really like this photo.

We really did have a wonderful Easter.

Next year, we are thinking of doing an Egg Hunt for the whole neighborhood.

Sounds fun, huh?
