Easter 2011

I know I'm a day late in posting these but we had such a full day yesterday that we were all pretty exhausted and we just came home and crashed.

Yesterday was my first day back at church since having Ethan and it was SO great to be worshipping with our congregation again. It was a beautiful service and every year I always get chills as I watch everyone around me celebrate Easter and the resurrection of our Lord!

After church and a quick nap for Ellie, we went to my Aunt's house to celebrate Easter with my extended family (sisters, parents, aunts and uncles, my cousins, Ellie and Ethan's cousins, my grandma, etc.) As you can see, it was a very large gathering.

First we prayed and had a delicious meal, then we did Easter baskets and an Easter egg hunt. We had a wonderful time!

Here are some of the best pictures of the day:

This is Ellie all dressed up for church and wearing her Easter hat. :)





Here's Ellie checking out her Easter basket and showing it off to me.



Elliana's cousin Reagan (my niece) fell in love with the piano and everyone took turns playing alongside her.



I LOVE this picture of Elliana, Reagan, and my cousin Sara(sitting next to Ellie). Ellie absolutely adores Sara and follows her everywhere.



I guess all of the piano playing wore Reagan out. Isn't this picture sweet?!



All of the little ones enjoyed the Easter egg hunt. Aunt "Ney" (my sister Courtney) helped Elliana gather her eggs. Thanks Ney!



Here's Ellie with her cousins Devyn and Reagan hunting for eggs. :)



And of course this post would not be complete without pictures of my 2 favorite men, Caleb and Ethan. I love this father/son picture.



And, last but not least, my new favorite picture of Ethan.



I hope you all had a great Easter weekend too.

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.
