Easter weekend

It was another cold Saturday morning for the Otter Creek egg hunt. This makes now year number three for wintery conditions...I vote for an afternoon hunt next year!!! We snuggled to stay warm until the hunt started.

That afternoon Mimi met us at Mammi's house and we painted egg cookies to deliver to the residents at Wellington. We used the white of an egg mixed with fool coloring for our paint.

You brighten the room as soon as you walk in for all the sweet residents there.

Granny especially lights up at the sight of you!!!!!!!!!

On Sunday morning, we awoke to some surprises from the Easter bunny. UMBRELLAS for all this spring rain were a favorite!

Easter time reminds me of God's great power in resurrecting all of our dead places and making everything beautiful in HIS perfect time!

A full week!!!

This past week was your spring break week, Caitlyn. You were super excited to have 9 days off of was I!!!! It began with dying Easter eggs with Mammi in preparation for an early Easter celebration. I still have such wonderful memories of doing this with momma when I was little!!!

Your second tooth came out at school on that last Friday. Your "window" is getting bigger!!!

Do you remember the homemade crutches from a few weeks ago? You have been a bit consumed with them.... Some sweet friends heard of your fascination with them and found some old ones for you to really pretend with. You are have gotten so into your role. You now even have Caroline talking about wanting a wheelchair!!!!

We had some fun time with friends this week................

putting on shows........


and seeing your first 3-D movie!!!

We celebrated Easter early at Mammi and Big Daddy's because the Dominguez crew will be gone on the actual day.

Mammi had a neat book about Jesus being ALIVE. She let each of you add stickers to the story as she went along.

Caroline, your class at school had your Easter egg hunt at Garner's grandparents house. It was a LOVELY day!!! You got to play outside with all your friends on an amazing playground, hunt eggs and have a catered lunch. We had a hard time leaving!!!!!

This weekend we have more things in store...I just hope in the midst of all the egg hunting and candy, we can bring the message of LIFE home. JESUS IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
