"He is not here; for he is risen."

I love Easter. I am grateful James and I both grew up knowing who Jesus is and what he has done for us. I am grateful, like our parents, we can teach our kids that so they know they are never alone or forgotten.

This Easter was extra special because we got to celebrate with family in town. James' family made the long drive from California and we are so grateful they came to visit us all.

Saturday Koby got to dye Easter eggs with his grandma and grandpa! This was the first time I have ever attempted to do it with him. Dye and kids should not be allowed within 100 feet of each other. We only had one spill and about 5 cracked eggs. It was a success:) And he had so much fun with "Grandma Takako"...

Sunday was great. This year, James and I really wanted to help Koby understand that Easter is about Christ.  We decided to do a treasure hunt with the boys and have all the clues be about Jesus.The questions were simple, but effective. It was really fun and I think it really did help teach Koby.

After the hunt the boys enjoyed their Easter baskets. Lincoln enjoyed his First peep. Koby enjoyed all the jelly beans. Then, they both enjoyed bath-time with Koby's new bubble wands.

We enjoyed wonderful lessons in church. I discovered I have an even bigger respect for nursery leaders-Koby, along with all the sugar-high, napless kids, had a bit of a melt down. Poor kids. Their little bodies just don't know how to handle holidays sometimes.

After church we went to Janelle and Peter's house with the whole family for an Easter egg hunt. I am pretty sure Koby doesn't need to be in the "3 and under" group anymore because he sure did get more eggs than he needed. That kid is a sprinter, especially when there's treats involved.

Koby, on a mission.

James was a little too excited about jelly beans...
What a cute couple:)
We love our families. We miss you all.
