Easter 2011

We  had a wonderful Easter.  We were able to go back to our lovely church (after months of not attending because it was flu season and we were trying to keep Penny healthy) and it was SO good to be back!  The boys were excited to see their teachers and went in their rooms without any hesitation.  Penny stayed with us in the sanctuary and did really well.  I did have to walk with her in the foyer for a bit but they have a tv broadcasting the sermon so I didn't miss out on much.  I was just thrilled to be there and could feel the Spirit.  Mom also joined us at church and I was happy for that too.  When church was over we headed home to see if the Easter Bunny had stopped by while we were gone.  Indeed he did!

Charlie got a bunch of cool LEGO stuff.  A game, 2 books, movie etc.  Tommy was pretty thrilled with his loot as well, 2 games, a Transformer coloring book, candy and money filled eggs.

We wanted to do our annual Easter egg hunt in the backyard but our yard is a HUGE mud pit.  So, Trent had the great idea to hide the eggs at the school playground that is 2 houses down.  So he and Uncle Greg ran down and hid the eggs and then called for all of us to come on down.  The kids had a great time, Charlie said it was his favorite part of the day :)

Then we headed back to the house to eat some cake and ice cream!

It was really a nice day. We had our new neighbors over for dinner as well and it was so good to fellowship with them a bit.  I was kind of bummed that we didn't get a full family picture or a picture of Trent and I.  So, after everyone left and Trent and I were hanging out we decided to take a few of our own photos.

I love that man!
