Easter Time

I'm the first to admit that I can get really wrapped up in the cute cuddly bunny, fuzzy chick, baby animal, spring time fever part of commercialized Easter.  I love all of the beautiful pastel colors, and soft fuzzy animals pictured in the advertisements.  I love seeing big poofy Easter dresses on little girls wearing white patent leather shoes with little lacy white socks standing beside little boys in cute dressy suits.  

This year, I'm trying to really reflect on what Christ did for me so many years ago.  I'm trying, I really am trying to be continually thankful and grateful to Jesus in all circumstances.  It is hard, because I have the tendency to be so whiny and ungrateful.  After thinking of all Christ did for us and continues to do everyday, I should thank him and praise him every minute!  I want my family to see beyond all of the cutesie parts of Easter, and see what really matters and that is JESUS!  With all that being said, here are some pictures of doing cutesy Easter stuff, and some other random pictures from the past few weeks.

Last Sunday morning before church

Daddy and the boys dying eggs
