Easter Fun!!

We had a great time spending time with our family celebrating Easter.  On Saturday we had the cousins come over for Pizza and Egg Coloring and an Egg Hunt.  Emily couldn’t wait for them to get here and had a great time running around and playing with them in the backyard.

On Easter the girls looks so cute all dressed up in their Easter Dresses for Church.  My favorite part of the service is the Living Cross that the congregation creates (I was so disappointed that I was not able to get a picture).  At the front of the alter their is a large cross covered in chicken wire.  At the beginning of the service each person comes up and puts a fresh flower on the cross.  It is beautiful to watch this dark empty cross bloom with life Easter Morning.  Michael lifted Emily up so that she could put her flower up near the top.  Even Juliette was given a flower to add to the cross.  I loved watching her hold it as we were waiting for our turn.  She smelled it and just rolled it between her fingers.

Juliette was so excited to help Emily open her Easter Present from Grandma and Grandpa.  The funny thing was that she had her very own identical present to open!!
