Sunday morning we had to wake the kids up early so that we had enough time to all get ready, see what the Easter Bunny brought and get to church on time for the early service so that we could get out to my parents house for lunch with the family. Here is how the day looked:
Waiting patiently to go downstairs and see what treats are waiting on them…
This picture is probably my favorite of the day. They both took off running as soon as their feet hit the downstairs floor. I am not sure what Sam thought he was running to but since Reese was so excited he was excited too.
After each thing they pulled out of their basket, they would run it over to me to see.
And Sam had to get in to all of the candy!! He would hold it in his hand until it melted or try to bite through the wrapper. He is a junk food lover just like the rest of us.
After a wonderful church service, we went to my parents house for lunch with my parents, Becca, and my dad’s brothers family.
My mom bought us the Resurrection Eggs so I read the stories to Reese while we waited on family to arrive.
I love this picture…I just wish that silly stick was not in front of her face.
We also had my mom take family pictures for us. We don’t all get to dress up often and at the same time so it was nice to get some picture proof.
Reese looks like she is Sam’s puppet master.
They got to play with bubbles and chalk outside.
And then they had an Easter Egg hunt with one of my cousin’s kids.
Sam did so well for his first egg hunt. He never seemed interested in hunting with Reese when we would have them in the backyard but he enjoyed it.
After everyone was gone, I tried on my wedding dress for Reese. Well, I attempted to. To say the least, it definitely does not fit anymore. She loved it though and wanted to try it all on too.
What a blessed day we had!
