Easter 2013

Doesn't it feel like Sunday was ages ago already? Maybe it's just me! Easter is always full of wonderful blessings for our family every year. We always go to church, participate in numerous Easter egg hunts and have a huge family dinner. This year was no exception!

Jeremy took Henry on this year's first Easter egg hunt while I was at work a couple of Saturdays ago. He was super shy and only picked up a couple of eggs, but Jeremy said he had a ton of fun anyway.

Henry and his Grandma.
Daddy and Henry. I asked Jeremy why he looked so angry to be participating in an egg hunt and he told me this was about the 15th try at a picture because his mom couldn't figure out the camera on the phone. Haha!
We gave Henry his Easter basket first thing Sunday morning - in bed. In case you missed it, you can check out the details of what was in the basket in this post. He loved everything and played with his trains all morning long!



Then we all got dressed up and headed off to church. We still attend my home church in Miamisburg on special holidays although we have a local church that we attend quite often as well. My grandmother and brothers and sisters attend this church so it always feels good to go there when we can.

Family photo!
Sisterly love.


He did MUCH better the second time around!
We went to my grandmother's house afterwards to have a light lunch and watch Henry open his Easter basket from her.



She loves him more than anything.
Then we headed to Jeremy's parent's house for dinner and another Easter egg hunt (and more baskets). The food was soooo good and I totally blew my diet for the day (hey, it was a holiday) and I have to say that it was totally worth it. Henry enjoyed dessert the best.


We had just a wonderful Easter and I hope your Easter was as blessed as ours!

    1. No! Not at all! Haha! I can't believe the amount of candy and things he received for Easter. I sent a huge bag of it to work with Jeremy for his boss and we still have two entire buckets full. The kid is spoiled rotten!

    1. Thanks Jen! I got it at Penney's for $35 on sale and I love it too. The only thing I didn't like was the top of it during church - cleavage is not such a good thing then! Haha!

    1. Thanks! It's been a 'wishlist' item for some time now and I treated myself to it when I lost my first 10 pounds. =)

    1. Thanks Ashley. Considering I think he skipped pretty much every meal and ate nothing but candy and sweets all day - I think you'd be right! Haha!
