Easter 2014

We had a great day celebrating Jesus and family and friends. The kids were very excited to dig through their baskets when their eyes popped open.

By some miracle, we were dressed for the 8:30 service with time to spare for pictures. I made Gracie’s dress (completely last minute – didn’t start it until Friday – which officially makes me a crazy person) and I LOVE it! She looked so precious. I can take pictures of that sweet girl ALL. DAY. LONG.

All three of my guys were handsome as ever, too.

We weren’t able to get a picture of all five of us, so we just took turn passing the camera around. Ben wanted to take one of me & Brian – my little future photographer. :)

The service was great – the kids went down to the altar and tore paper (representing Jesus being torn for us and how we need to be broken before him) and then taped all the colorful pieces to the cross to demonstrate how something beautiful comes from Jesus’s suffering and sacrifice. I love how FBC involves them in the service for these special celebrations.
After church we came home and started lunch prep. The Monneys came over and we grilled and the kids played and played until we were all ready to drop (which is exactly what we did for a couple hours after our company went home.)
Tonight we will hopefully get to make our Resurrection Cookies since we ran out of time yesterday.
Happy Happy Easter from the Barricks!
