This Easter...

This Easter, I'm thankful for the fact that a simple platter of Krispy Kremes greeting the kids on Sunday morning brought about the biggest smiles....
Notice the fruit?  I do have a conscience you know...
I'm thankful that Wal-Mart is open late giving me time to begin my Easter shopping around 8 pm Saturday night....

I'm thankful to see this one double-fisting her breakfast.  She so needs to put on the poundage...

I'm thankful for the six kids who gave me 10 minutes of their time and managed to look at the camera and smile simultaneously on a beautiful spring morning...

I'm thankful for my sweet girls...
...and my suave boys...
Waiting for their turn in the photo shoot

I'm thankful that I get to see these precious faces every day...

This was his "cool" shot.  Just had to throw that one in there.

I'm thankful for this loud, crazy, messy, growing, learning, beautiful thing called a family....

But most importantly, this Easter, I am thankful for Jesus...the most precious gift, from the most holy Father, to the most undeserving of

“The highest act of love is the giving of the best gift, 
and, if necessary, at the greatest cost, 
to the least deserving. 
That’s what God did. 
At the loss of His Son’s life to the totally undeserving,
God gave the best gift – 
the display of the glory of Christ
who is the image of God.”  

John Piper

  8. Oh lovely pictures! Funny thing is we would have loved to have done cute pics of our kiddo's but we were busy searching several acres for my 6 yr old son's glasses....he'd had them a mere 6 days when they got lost...we think they *might* be in the pond. (And yes, we had a strap on order) Le Sigh, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!
