Easter Morn!

We had a lot of fun this Easter! Our Easter kicked off a little early this year. First off on Tuesday, the city hosted an "Egg Walk" on the historic mainstreet of town which basically consisted of us walking from store to store and the girls receiving handful after handful of candy. Zoe kept calling her basket her "butterfly halloween basket". Hilarious I know but seriously how is she to know the difference it basically was halloween minus the costume for her but she did see a grown man shake his grove thing in a bunny costume.
We took the girls to say hi to the Easter bunny at the mall on thursday night. Zoe thought that was AWESOME! She was all smiles and giggles the whole time. Isa wasn't sure what to make of the whole thing but she did finally give him five.
Mike had to go out on alert on Saturday and didn't get home until Sunday afternoon so we celebrated Easter on Friday morning. Isa, of course, woke up first at 6:45am. (My easter present wasn't a good nights rest). Should couldn't stop from picking up all the eggs hidden in plain sight in the hall.
Shortly after Zoe and daddy joined us and well what can I say there was a lot of candy eating going on!
The Easter Bunny brought Mike a Framing Nail Gun! That Easter Bunny must be AWESOME!
This year we decided to for go the Easter dress because we were not able to go to church on sunday and they still have dresses from Christmas that haven't been worn yet.
I talked to the girls about the true meaning of Easter and Zoe (ever so enthralled with the topic of Jesus Christ lately) chimed in "Jesus made my eyes mommy and I'm a daughter of God". I love that kid! What a little smarty!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter and was able to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. I am so grateful for a Savior who loves and cares for me and who sacrificed his life for me so that I may return to my Father in Heaven.

Isn't Easter fun! Isa is getting so big. I understand about working holidays around alerts. Kids don't care as long as you bring out the good stuff :-)

What a sweet family you have...and a RAD bunny. I bet Chris wants your bunny to come to our house too. The girls look so cute, especially the first one of Isa with her little hair-do all fasionable and styled.
