Easter....a little late

Here are some fun pictures from our Easter activities this year:

Typical Haven look
Easter morning...Haven's Easter Basket contained a princess coloring book, bibs, sippy cups, a book, Alice in Wonderland movie, and Smores Goldfish Crackers.
Looking at the goods
We met Grandpa Mark, Grammy Tammy, and Uncle Cass at The Machine Shed for brunch and then went to their church with them at New Hope Assembly.

After church we headed up to Slater to celebrate with Adam's side of the family at Grandma Dottie's house.  Here are Kamryn and Haven playing the piano in their pretty dresses.
All the kids getting ready for the Easter Egg Hunt.
Funny Story:  Later that evening, when I was putting Haven to bed, I read her the Easter story out of her Children's Bible.  I then said, "So that's what it's all about.  Easter eggs and candy are fun, but the real story is about Jesus and that is the most important story!"  Haven then looked at the Bible and at me and with much inflection said, "Ohhhhh."  Ha Ha.  Like it all made sense to her now. 

But seriously, it is so easy to get caught up in the things that don't really matter. Like getting Haven an Easter dress, dying eggs, Easter Egg Hunts, and even spending time with family.  All of those things are fun and great but Adam and I have talked about how we don't want those things to be the focus.  We really tried to spend time around Easter this year thinking about what the Lord did for us when he died on the cross.  We are already talking about how we can do this better around Christmas this year!
