I love Easter and all that it means for us as Christians. Seriously, how awesome is it to have a day to celebrate Jesus and the hope that we have in Him…something that we should be celebrating every day.
But even on a day full of such hope, I can’t help but think about my baby girl and miss her like crazy. There is something about seeing all those adorable little girls in their Easter dresses that pulls at my heart strings. As I was looking through these pictures I was thinking about Cora’s first Easter. She had an adorable little navy blue floral Easter dress…one of my favorite dresses of hers. She would have fit just perfectly into our family picture with her navy blue.
We tried to get a brother picture.
It wasn’t very successful.
Levi would hold Griffin for about one second and then let go.
They sure are cute though…and they love each other so very much.
And then we tried to get all the cousins. Levi would not look up at the camera.
And when Griffin started screaming he just got up, patted him on the head, and walked away. Nice.
Gramps and Grammy intervened…but my children still didn’t cooperate. Oh well.
Levi went on his first egg hunt this year too.
We forgot his Easter basket at home so Levi and Dad ran to Walmart to get something for him to collect his eggs in. They came back with a pink camo bucket. I think he wore it well.
Levi was super excited about his candy.
He opened his eggs as fast as he could. I think even his Gramps was helping him shovel candy into his mouth.
Ellie tried to get the boys to pose for a picture but they were too busy opening their eggs.
I’m pretty sure he would have never stopped eating.
Amazingly, he hasn’t cared about his Easter candy too much this week…which means more for Mom and Dad to enjoy!
And that was our Easter.
