We got up unusually early. Not quite as early as last year, but still very early. We decided that we should have our breakfast in the graveyard after our 8:00 AM church service, and I'm awfully glad we did. The temperature was tolerable, and we enjoyed a leisurely brunch.
My family was in town, so after church, my sister took some quick photos for us. I returned the favor and snapped a couple of pictures of her with my girls and Louis.
I'm a little jealous that they got the "perfect family photo" with everyone smiling and looking at the camera. No such luck for me.
We went out to Blakeys that afternoon for our Easter Baskets. Laura made Elaina her very own Easter Bunnanay.
Then we all had Easter Dinner at my parents' house next door.
Almost everyone. Mom and Dad and Daniel's seat at the head of the table wouldn't fit into the picture. And of course we missed Samuel, who lives in Denver.
Grams and Chloë.
Papa and Elaina.
Uncle Austin, Aunt Christa and Aunt Jessie adoring the baby.
Aunt Laura makes faces at Elaina.
I love it when my whole family and all of my inlaws get together. I'm reminded at how blessed I am to have such wonderful families that truly enjoy each other's company.
He is Risen!
