Happy Easter

The Easter festivities are over...and all are exhausted. It was a wonderful day...full of many blessings...the most important...family!

We woke up this morning...and Seth did a quick Easter Egg Hunt in the house and found his Easter basket. He was pretty excited to get a new Monster Truck and a "real" football. We had cinnamon rolls for breakfast and went to church.

Church was amazing...the music department added about 10 Philharmonic players to their orchestra and the music was beautiful...very very uplifting. It was a wonderful celebration of our Risen Savior.

Back home to get ready for lunch...it's been our annual tradition to have the whole family to our house...and this year...we were blessed to add baby Nia to the celebration!
So...with all of Doug's family, plus Nana and Oompa and Grandma and her friend, Ted...plus us 3...we had a very full dining room! Since both babies will be out of car seats...I think next year we'll be eating in the garage! Really...you can never have too much family.
We ate a wonderful lunch...hunted Easter Eggs...played football and baseball the backyard (well, the guys and kids did...the pregnant ladies and post-surgery ladies stayed inside and talked). Then...we gorged ourselves even more with Grandma's pies and famous bunny cake. It was great to have everyone here.

Tonight..tucking Seth in bed...he had nothing but wonderful things to say about the whole day! It was....a very blessed day!

Sounds like a truly blessed day. We also spent the day in Fort Wayne going to church with family, visiting and eating lots of good foods, and enjoying our day.
