This year was the first year we've gotten to celebrate Easter at our home with Theo's parents. It made for a very special day. The weather could not have been better (contrasted with last year's awful nasty weather). We all attended mass as a family and the kids did so well considering how hot and crowded the church was.
Before church the kids "opened" their baskets. We don't really do the Easter bunny but we do get the kids some things.
The baskets were the same ones from last year I had made. And the paint pen most certainly wasn't permanent but the kids didn't seem to care!! Carter got a water balloon launcher, lots of water balloons for daddy to fill up :), a Cat in the Hat movie, bubbles, and a VeggieTales garden pail that included sunflower seeds. Olivia got lots of little Dora and princess stuff (including a lip gloss watch in which she proceeded to rub the gloss all over her lips and body yesterday), and rainbow goldfish. Isaiah didn't get a whole lot. He got one little toy, yogurt melts and a book. They each got a "Jesus" chocolate fish which I thought was the coolest thing ever.

We hope you all had a blessed Easter. We sure did. I am so proud to be a part of this family. I am truly and richly blessed!
