Easter Activities

Easter morning, we were ready to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ, but first we needed to get to the church. And that meant being able to drive through water, too bad we couldn't have Moses' staff to just part it.
Steve took over driving the Ridgeliner because my mom was almost hyperventilating just watching Randy's Ford drive through the water.
So once Randy's family safely made it across, Steve carefully drove us through and got us to church on time.
After church, we made a brief stop to get a few pictures of our family. Carefully changing out of our knee-high- waterproof-mud-boots to put our fancy shoes back on.

But the kids put their mud boots back on for Egg Hunt 2011. The Easter bunny got pretty creative with hiding those candy-filled plastic eggs. Some were spotted even up in the tree. The kids were happily swapping candy with each other and getting glossy-eyed from their sugar coma shortly after the 108 eggs were found.

My mom put on a bountiful spread of food for Easter dinner including ham, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, numerous salads and pie, pie, pie (thanks to my SIL, Anna). Lots of laughter and stories were exchanged by the attendees which included: Uncle Jim, Aunt Judy, Uncle Bob, Randy, Anna, Kaleb, Logan, Russ, Kristy, Nixin, Noah, Grandma/mom Rose, Grandpa/dad Rod, Steve, Abby, Kippy & me. All those mouths to feed and there were still oodles and oodles of leftovers.
I think my boots look rather snazzy with my Easter dress, don't you?
