Happy Easter Sunday!

Happy Easter Sunday from the Beards! We do not want to forget the reason for this important day---Jesus' resurrection from the grave; however, we do enjoy the normal Easter eggs and traditions. After asking Andrew what they talked about in junior church, he stated: "Did you know there are two names for today. (Long pause) Easter Sunday and Resurrection Sunday."

I can only get about two decent pictures before we have to take one like the picture below. Yes, my children at their finest. (Please note: This was before all the sugar they got throughout the course of the day.)

I was very happy to have some beautiful flowers growing in my backyard. Brooke was more than happy to pose with this one.

Every Easter Sunday afternoon, we have the annual Easter egg hunt. I gave them a checklist of eggs that they had to find. It was more of an adventure than just "find any old egg." They enjoyed themselves, but kept looking at their "checklist" to check their progress.

One egg (for Andrew) was just a bit out of reach.
Yes, and Brooke this year, will be playing the Easter Bunny :)
Hope you enjoyed this day in the Lord's house and with fun with family.

FUN! FUN! FUN! FUN! FUN! We had a very quiet Easter but one of our sweet widow ladies gave us a little bag of chocolate candy which we really enjoyed! Love to you all. Mom

Thanks for the pics. We as well had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday / Easter and the kids enjoyed finding their eggs hidden throughout the basement.

Resurrection Day is something Gary just read about!! So it was interesting to hear that Andrew learned that in church.

Wonderful photos! Brooke makes a very beautiful bunny!!
