We had a great weekend celebrating Easter with friends and family!
Friday, we hosted a little Easter playgroup/egg hunt for the mommas and kids in our a small group. We were missing a few, but had a fun morning with this cute group.
These 3 sweet friends are all the same age and have been friends since they were little bitty. Here they are 2 years ago at our small group Easter egg hunt and then again this year. We may recreate this picture every year until they are grown. ;)
Friday night, our church hosted a Good Friday Service. Our friend, Jackie, went with us to the service and to eat afterwards. Her husband plays minor league baseball, so he is at spring training right now while Jackie finishes up her last few weeks of college here. We loved having her as part of our family Friday night. Jillian really loves Jackie! She has asked me twice in the past week if Jackie can come spend the night with her. :)
Easter morning...I love seeing these two in coordinating clothes!

Josh's parents spent Easter with us this year.
We had my family over for lunch as well. It was fun spending Elliott's 1st Easter with her!

Hunting Easter eggs in our backyard later Sunday evening. It got a little competitive between these 2. :)
We had such a great day celebrating the Resurrection! We hope you did as well!!
The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse was broken
One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken
The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting
Our resurrected King has rendered you defeated
Forever, He is glorified
Forever, He is lifted high
Forever, He is risen
He is alive
He is alive
