Easter 2015

So I'm extremely a little late getting this post done. But, Easter this year was better than the last few we've had! It seems like the last few years, we've had a kid crying for one reason or another.

Easter 2011--he wasn't crying in this picture, but he screamed the whole time I got him dressed
 Easter 2012--he started screaming after he saw his Easter basket, because.....why not?
Easter 2013--she was SO unhappy with her dress

 Easter 2014--no idea what she was so mad about, but she. was. TICKED and let me know all about it.

But this year was decent! No meltdown, no crying, no fits. It was SO great. We celebrated with my side of the family on the Saturday before Easter. We had everyone over to eat and hunt eggs.We made a big ham and everybody else brought sides. It was SO yummy! And the kids all had a blast, of course!

On Easter Sunday, we woke up and the kids opened their baskets. They each got a pair of shoes and some candy. After we had breakfast, we went to church and met my mom and Granny there. We kept the kids in the adult service instead of sending them to the nursery and they were AWESOME. I was so happy (and let's be honest--surprised) that they held still and kept quiet. Much improved over the last time we tried to keep them in the sanctuary. After church, we headed over to Nick's family's house to celebrate with them. It was FREEZING cold outside (which is weird for Easter), so we ate lunch (delicious BBQ) and then we had the kids hunt eggs in the basement. They had fun and we stayed warm!

We were tired and SO ready for a nap. I think we all crashed as soon as we got home and just relaxed the rest of the day. I'm so thankful for our Savior and the REAL reason to celebrate Easter!
Two kids happy at the same time on Easter---it's a miracle!
