Resurrection Sunday!!

April 17, 2006

What a glorious Easter Sunday we had. The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect.

Eeny, Meeny and Miney

We went to church in the morning and then came home quickly to welcome our family for a BBQ feast. Delicious!!

The kids had fun with the Easter Egg hunt. Jaden was so tired he screamed and cried until we physically carried him to the yard and pointed to the eggs. Then he really got into it.

Evely was content with her 3 eggs!

Jaden, the candy monster had to stop every so often to eat something before finding more.

Julian hunted down the most – age being on his side!

We really enjoyed our family being together. It seemed like a quiet day for the Shoemakers and the Brown’s. I think it was a truly relaxing, mellow day. (or because Mary Kay had lost her voice! :) )

The picture of the day – he slept where he dropped!

“Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.” Martin Luther

John 11:25 Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.

  1. It was a beautiful afternoon! The kids look so sweet. I am glad it was a relaxing afternoon for you! We enjoyed coloring eggs with you on Friday. The kids are quite entertaining!

  2. My neck hurts just looking at that picture of Jaden sleeping! Oh to be that limber/flexible again! 😉 It was so nice out Sunday. I spent most of the day outside and it was wonderful. Glad you all had a nice Easter.

  3. The weather was awesome! I kind of like those late Easter’s. Jaden ate so much candy I could actually HEAR his pancreas churning. We were entertained by the neighbor’s flying their red baron kites behind us so Julian got his spiderman kite out and got it stuck in a tree. fun.
