Easter is such a special time for our family because it is the day we celebrate the cornerstone of our faith- the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This year was the first year in 5 years that my mom has been off for Easter so she treated us to a delicious lunch. Pop-O ate with us because Grams and Aunt Betsi are currently in England visiting friends for Spring Break!
Our Easter Sunday started off like any other Sunday… breakfast from Bojangles!
After breakfast the girls “opened” their Easter baskets. It made my heart smile when I heard Mackaylan say she “totally forgot about the Easter bunny!” It made me proud that as a family we had focused on the real meaning of Easter- Jesus Christ!
Once the girls were ready I tried to get a few shots. It was raining outside at that point so I had to take them in the house. They were both so cute I couldn’t turn down this photo opportunity. Plus, my battery was now fully charged on my camera, and as I told Mackaylan while I was fixing her hair… the “Mamarazzi” is back in action!
This Easter was the 2nd year that our church as put on and Easter drama called “The Story of Jesus.” Mickey has been in it both years. It is a very moving production and really puts into perspective the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. I thought I was going to be in the nursery during the service, but Pop-O came and let me go to service. Before I left I was able to take a few shots of the cuties in my room. I love this picture of Lydia because it reminds me so much of my mama. Just another reason why I always call her “Little Linda!”
After church we went to my mom and dad’s for lunch. My mom prepared a wonderful meal complete with ham, veggies, rolls, and apple pie and icecream. It was nice to be able to spend time with my parents (and Pop-O). We ate too much and laughed a lot!
One word sums up this holiday for me: BLESSED!!!
