Easter happenings

We had a wonderful Easter this year. I forgot to take a picture of the kids in their Sunday best, but they didn't get new clothes this year anyway. Here's a pic of their loot. They didn't get too much candy, which was good because I knew they'd be getting more later that night.
They were happy to see what the Easter Bunny brought them.

This is probably their favorite gift. They got the Live Butterfly Garden! These caterpillars will soon make a chrysalis, then they'll eventually turn into butterflies! I'll keep their progress updated on the blog. :)

We went to church, then headed to Kevin's parents for Easter dinner (ham & funeral potatoes, yum!) and the annual easter egg hunt.

They got a lot of fun candy and prizes. In fact, Ryker ate a little too much candy, and early Monday morning started throwing up. :(
We kept reminding the kids all day that Easter really isn't about the candy and bunny, but about Christ and the Resurrection. We talked about what they learned that day in their class, and they seem to understand. :)

And I just wanted to share this find I got over the weekend for $15! It is one of the upcoming projects I've been working on. I still need to finish Bailee's dresser, 2 desks for the girls, the new baby's dresser, and this table. I can't wait to have it all done!

Looks like a perfect Easter (minus the Monday morning throw up). Glad you had a great time!
