Easter 2014

We had such a wonderful Easter, this year!

The Easter Bunny came to see Jackson and McKinley!  The bunny knew exactly the type of things that both kids were interested in, and everyone loved everything.  McKinley is super into Minnie Mouse, and of course, Jackson loves his Super Hero's.  The Easter Bunny even found "surprise eggs" that Jackson had been talking about for W.E.E.K.S.  :)

We tried to take a few pictures before we headed to church.  Of course, you know it is... on a morning when you are trying to get pictures.. someone is in a bad mood.  :)  Jackson had a rough little spurt Easter morning, but quickly recovered and was happy.  McKinley loved her Easter dress, she helped me pick it out.  She obviously felt pretty, because she couldnt stop dancing.  :)  But let me tell you, although the strapless dress was an adorable option.  For a 2 year old, who doesnt care if it stays a dress, or becomes a skirt.. it is not super practical.  We will need to add some straps before we wear the dress next time.

Craig had the opportunity to preach on Easter Sunday for a friend, who was serving in Africa that morning.  They had an Easter egg hunt, which the kids loved!  It was a nice morning, meeting new people, and worshiping with a different church.

We went home and had naps, and then headed over to Honey and Papas for dinner.

We had a yummy dinner, and then the kids had an Easter Egg Hunt in Honey and Papas front yard.  They had a really good time.  Jackson and McKinley think Merritt (or Carrot or Garrett.. as McKinley refers to her) is pretty much the best!  McKinley can be very motherly with her.  A tad rough.. but its a sweet attempt.  :)  Next year, baby West will join in on the cousin fun!  Cant wait!

We are thankful for Jesus.  And what He did on the cross for us.  Thankful that we can celebrate Easter with our family!
