was a great day! we started our morning at church. it was a great morning to remember the incredible sacrifice of christ dying on the cross, but how that was not the end of the story-- that jesus rose from the dead and was ALIVE!! the kids looked adorable in their easter outfits...
just love this pic of olivia and mark and it is the best pic of o's dress.
our little family
then we had lunch with b and headed out to allen for some time with nana and gramps. since sunday mornings are a little crazy at our house getting ready and going to church we decided to do our easter baskets in the afternoon at nana and gramps' house.
olivia loved her hello kitty diary and multi-colored pen. i was most excited about new favorite children's bible, the Jesus Storybook Bible.
jack had a very toy story themed easter. he was sooooo excited to have woody and buzz. no inspirational gifts for jack. :) maybe next year buddy!!
he was also very interested in his elmo easter book...
then we headed to dinner at a very special restaurant for our family. 5 years ago on easter we announced that we were pregnant with our first baby. my mom loves that memory and now likes to go back there every year. it was a FABULOUS meal and we only had a few moments with the kids that made me think twice about bringing them to such a nice restaurant. :)
it was a great day to celebrate the fun traditions of easter like easter baskets, but also to celebrate that JESUS is alive!!!
