Easter frivolity

We had a great day. It was David's first Easter even though he is over a year old.

We had snow which was pretty crazy for me accustomed to Texas Easters.

We visited a new church and I met two moms and their kids.

We drove through our new neighborhood and saw a red fox! We had also seen one the day before while we were driving to a garage sale in another neighborhood. Never before in my life had I seen a red fox in real life before this week and I'd wanted to. God makes so many neat creatures.

My mom made a wonderful Easter lunch for us to enjoy together.

David enjoyed sharing eggs and putting them in his bucket. He also enjoyed eating cheerios out of them.

Hallelujah, Christ is risen!

sharing eggs with Nana

loving these new things to play with

yummy bunny

enjoying his Easter basket filled with a toy bunny from my childhood, a chick in an egg puppet from my classroom and a little duckie stuffed animal I used in my classroom as well and a wind up bunny that was a once upon a time gift from Sweetie that I saved. He also had eggs filled with cheerios and oatmeal squares. The Easter basket was mine growing up and the tiny yellow bucket was 50 cents at Michaels. Hooray for 50% off coupons. :) The carrot that I thought he would have so much fun playing with was unfortunately a bust as it had a hole in it but thankfully it was only a dollar!

I hope you and yours had a wonderful Easter!

Happy Easter! You said new neighborhood, does that mean you found a house???

Deborah said...

I especially like the picture of him "eating" the bunny. What a fun Easter.

Sounds like a great day. I love Easter for so many reasons! I had the same question as this your new temporary neighborhood, or did you guys find a house? So cool to see God's creatures!

I LOVE IT! Cheerios in Easter Eggs, that's brilliant! I will have to remember that next year. I love that several of his gifts were your toys, such a neat way to pass things down.

You are going to think me very "stalkerish" but I typed in your email address as a address and landed here.

I LOVE your blog. Your family is beautiful!

Isn't snow on Easter just wrong? And how about last weekend's weather? I must tell you that it's not typically like that here in May. April, yes, but not May. Oh well.

And one more thing. I loved your yard sale post. That Younglife sale at Home Depot? My daughter was there all day helping and I helped get set up the day before. My kids are very involved in Younglife...and Monument is our neck of the woods! Do you happen to live close(ish)?
