Resurrection Sunday

It is not uncommon to wake up to this on Easter morning in Colorado.

But we still had a wonderful day celebrating Christ's resurrection. It was extra special because it was Nate's first Easter.

These are the Easter baskets I ordered from Pottery Barn with their names on them.

Nate and Tim opening their gifts from Emma.

We went to my sister Cynthia's house for dinner, and she and I prepared the meal. This was the "girls" table.

We had an Easter egg hunt in the basement since it snowed all day.

Uncle Scotty, Aunt Linda and Papa all took turns spoiling Nate by holding him all day. (Nanny is still in Texas with Grandma Bennie in ICU.)

All worn out from the busy day.

When we got home that night, Nate got to try food for the first time. He had sweet potatoes (and loved them in case you couldn't tell). And Tim juiced some apples and pears so we gave him a few sips (loved that, too)!

It was a wonderful day with family, but we deeply missed Mom and Tomy who couldn't be with us. Emma used her "Resurrection Eggs" to tell the Easter story, which was special to see how God has reached her heart with the message of His Word.
