Easter in Pictures

Miraculously when we woke up on Easter morning, the stone was rolled away and Jesus was no longer in the tomb!


Mike's mother sends down money each year to be hidden in three special big eggs for each of the kids. The eggs have their names on them...you can only find your own. This year Jake found his first, then Madi, and finally Jonathan.






In the baskets...Madi got shorts, a shirt, and underwear; Jonathan got 2 pairs of shorts and socks; Jake got two of the Disney cars he collects, jammies, and socks, and they all got some candy, glue, and pencils.




The search for chocolate eggs. Madi found 19, Jonathan found 9, and Jake found 8...what does that tell you about females and chocolate?!





We started our Garden of the Good Shepherd sticker calendar to count the 50 days of Easter...


An Easter egg hunt with friends...






Trading candy after the hunt (we have a Halloween picture of the same kids doing the same thing)...


Spring Break camp...

great pictures1 I forgot that you guys hid chocolate eggs (although I did wonder because you mentioned that you don't usually color eggs and I remembered them hunting for something!) That's neat that Mike's mom sends money to be hidden!
