As usual, Easter came and went quickly this year but I am so thankful for this holiday, when we can take time to reflect on Jesus' sacrifice for us and His victory over death. It always moves me to tears when I think about the love that Jesus showed for me in that act of ultimate humility. I am glad that I will get to thank Him in person some day.

This Easter we traveled up to Long Island to visit Chad's sister Molly & her husband Josh. My in-laws were also there for a visit so it was even better.

So here are a few photos ... as you can tell some of us were more cooperative with picture-taking than others :/ Life with kids, I suppose!

Bribing Carter with cookies in an attempt to get him to
cooperate ...

It worked for one picture ...

It worked for two pictures ... (although then his sister was acting silly)

.... and, then it stopped working.
But Chad's parents look great, don't they??

Molly & Josh ... sorry, multiple cameras going so they are looking elsewhere.

Molly & I with our 6 month pregnant bellies. Our baby girls are due 6 days apart!
And there is my other little girl, who wanted to be in the picture too.

I love this picture of Audrey & Grandpa. She spent quite a bit of the weekend attempting to "beat him up" (don't worry, he was asking for it!) She had a lot of fun with her Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Molly & Uncle Josh.
Oh, and she is now begging us for a Wii so she can play Rock Band, since both Chad's sisters have one. I just wonder how long it will be until we fall victim to our culture ...

Hope you all had a blessed Easter!

Looks like you had a great Easter! I love that picture of Audrey with her Grandpa. I didn't know Chad's sister was expecting...and so close with the due dates. That's nice that the cousins will be the same age.

That's so exciting about you and your sis-in-law both being due at the same time! How fun! You look beautiful, mama. And Carter's little outfit - too handsome!
