Easter 2011

Easter morning was not a good one in our house. Between over-sleeping, grumpy kids, Anna being so unreasonable about a SATIN dress itching...oy! So there aren't many good pictures of the kids in their super cute outfits from Uncle Windell. :(

But truly what Easter is all about can't be ruined by some grumpy kids. My Savior is RISEN! It is no coincidence that "Earth Day" was on Good Friday. As Dad said, Satan hates Easter. It means he is defeated eternally. What a might GOD! My favorite Easter hymn is "Christ Arose"

Lyrics ~ Robert Lowry, 1826 - 1899
Music ~ Robert Lowry, 1826 - 1899

Low in the grave He lay,
Jesus my Savior,
Waiting the coming day,
Jesus my Lord!

Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever, with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose!
Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Vainly they watch His bed,
Jesus my Savior;
Vainly they seal the dead,
Jesus my Lord!

Death cannot keep its prey,
Jesus my Savior;
He tore the bars away,
Jesus my Lord!

Jacob's outfit came with a pair of jeans. 4T and I was about 6" short of getting them buttoned!! And about 6" too long in the legs. You never know how different brands will fit! The pants he's wearing here are 3T and they're plenty big! Anyway, his shirt came with a tie and Jacob wasn't really sure what to do with it!

Miss Grumpy Pants herself!

Look out.

Pout much?

We had dinner with the Lamberts so I tried for some pictures there. No such luck for 3 smiling kids.

Anna says "Chester is mad, too." Chester is her toy horse. Alllrighty then!

Now Jacob refuses to look at the camera and smile!! *sigh*

The kids' table was so cute! And they even made Jell-O eggs!

Isaac was ready for his photo-op, though! :)

Is this food???

Ehhh, I guess I can just chew on it.

Such beautiful girls in their Easter dresses!

Well it only took 6 hours, but she's smiling!!!

The family shot...pretty good considering the day!

Thanks, Lamberts for having us over. We all had a great time and stuffed ourselves full of delicious food!! :) Jacob was even willing to take a nap at your house if it meant staying longer!

Oh yeah...Jacob found Caleb's baseball hat and decided it went well with his outfit. :)
