Easter Highlights

You know, Easter 2011 just may very well go down in the history books as the best Easter I've ever had!  It was an absolutely perfect weekend for so many reasons, & here are a few of the highlights to prove it!

My very first time hiding Easter eggs as a "Momma"!

Coloring eggs.  This ended up being a fiasco {as you can imagine it would be with a one year old}.  First, Jett tried eating the egg with the shell on.  Then he dumped egg dye all over the table.  And finally, he slam dunked an egg into a coffee cup of dye resulting in splatters of blue flicking everywhere, & an egg sporting a rather crackled look.  It's so funny, while the egg dyeing whirlwind was happening around me, instead of frantically cleaning up the mess & removing Jett from the chaos, all I could do was stand there snapping pics & cracking up laughing!  I was drinking in every less- than- perfect moment.  Because whether they were perfect moments or not, they were ours, & they were meant to be savored.

My boy going on Easter egg hunts!  He had two egg hunts {one with my parents, & one with Jared's}.

My pretty pastel Easter cake!

Getting all dressed up for church on Easter Sunday!  In all the years past, Jared & I have gone to church with my family in my home town.  But now that we have a family of our own, we are finding the importance of spending Easter Sunday at our own church.  It was an absolutely beautiful service & it was amazing being surrounded by people we love so much.  Our church is not simply a church.  It is a family.  It is a place that feels like home.  And it was wonderful to spend Easter Sunday there!

How incredibly handsome my little Jett Jett looked! He is the sweetest little thing I've ever laid eyes!

The Easter baskets!  Jett received quite the loot from the Easter Bunny!  Between Jared & I, grandparents, & aunts & uncles, he ended up with a grand total of four Easter baskets!  Can we say S-P-O-I-L-E-D?!  It really does warm my heart to know how loved & adored my little boy is!

The Easter Bunny remembered me & J too!

There was a bunch of fun!

{Jared learning from his dad how to juggle Easter eggs!  These two are a mess!}

{Jett got the biggest kick out of DaddyBoy jumping over him!  He laughed from the belly up!  It was the cutest thing!}

And a whole lotta love!

And when you add each & every one of these highlights together, it's what a perfect Easter is made of!


  1. Aww, your Easter pics are great! Jett is sooo cute! I especially love the pic of Jett "flying" in the sky. Great shot! All in all, looks like you had a wonderful day.

    We had 16 kids at our place on Saturday for lunch (hotdogs and the fixins), hayride and egg hunt. Everyone had such a good time! My husbands sister goes all out for parties...she prepared 600 eggs, all filled with candy or a lil money! She's awesome! : )

    Thanks for sharing about your day...I just love reading your blog and I absolutely adore your lil Jett Jett.
