"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Easter 2010

I am just now getting to putting up our Easter pictures because of the many Disney World posts. :) Easter is always a wonderful time for our family and as the kids get older and start "getting" the event that our whole faith is based upon it is going to be even more special. What a beautiful picture the cross is of Christ's redeeming love and the amazing power of His resurrection fills me with such awe every year. At this point we are so excited about our kids one day surrendering their lives to the Lord. What a celebration those days are going to be! I can't wait!

The Saturday before Easter I took Audrey to get her very first manicure and pedicure! This absolutely one of my favorite was of pampering myself and it was so fun to share it with my girly-girl. She was so cute. Audrey was convinced that when we got there SHE was the one who was going to be doing the painting. She did great though after she realized that some other lady was going to be "painting" on her. :)


About to get a pedicure

It was a fun experience and a great way for just the two of us to do something special together. I have a feeling we will be having lots of days like this in the future!

Easter morning I tried so very hard to make it as non-stressful as possible for both me and the kiddos. Since Andrew goes up to the church so early every Sunday, it is always a very interesting process of getting myself and all 3 kids out the door and at church by 9:30 every week. Some Sundays are better than others.:) Easter Sunday this year was a breeze! I don't know if it was that the kids are older or that I might finally be getting the hang of this whole"mom with toddlers" thing. ;) Either way, I was SO thankful!

Easter basket fun!

Our adorable kiddos in their Easter gear!

Notice how all 3 wanted to have their "lovies" in the pic. Whatever it takes! :)

About to hunt Easter eggs at the church

Austin of course took his hunting very seriously. :)

Sweet girl

Ainsley couldn't have been cuter that day!

Love this pic! Just wish Ains was in it. :)

After church (where my awesome hubby preached 3 great sermons!), we headed to Ft. Worth to celebrate with Andrew's family.
The best pic we could get with Grandma and Grandpa Werley. :)

Let Easter egg hunt #3 begin! We had one at our house on Saturday to hunt for the resurrection eggs.:)

Our sweet cousin Sophia was there with her Daddy. (We missed Aunt Alisha and cousin Peyton who were at home sick. Austin kept asking when Peyton was coming. :)

These two are about 8 weeks apart and so cute together! Who cares about eggs! Let's play with the rocks instead! ;)

It was a great day to celebrate our risen Lord!
