Happy Easter!

This morning I woke up to a very excited little girl.  She wasn't excited about an Easter basket or egg hunts, or anything like that - she was so excited because she wanted to be the first one in the house to say, "He has risen!"  To see if people really do say, "He has risen, indeed!"  So sweet!

We had a fun and full day at church - ending with a church-wide Easter egg hunt.  We had a great time hanging out with our lifegroup afterwards.

 My girls were still trying to get into their baskets to see what candy might be there.  This is Nicoles "Don't try to take it away from me mommy or I'll run away" look.

 Back at home, we had a relaxing afternoon and a fun Skype with my brothers family - who are in Europe for an awesome 80 day trip - we miss you!  Then it was time for our own family egg hunt.  I must admit it was a bit low key with only 2 girls running around for eggs instead of the normal 5 kids.

 Nicole had a 2 Easter dress day.  I realized her first dress was too small (darn that 3T) and we had to upsize.  :^)

 Here's a flashback to last year - boy have the girls grown so much.  And you'll see that Nicole's final Easter dress was also Megan's Easter dress last year (wow).
As this day draws to a close, we wish our family and friends a very Happy Easter - one that is full of the knowledge of the joy that comes from God's sacrifice of His Son.  Our joy, from His sorrow.
But sorrow last for a night (or 3 days) and joy comes in the morning!
He is risen!
He is risen indeed!
