This year Abbey and Elijah got to participate in two Easter Egg hunts. The first one was with the kids from our small group. I say small group, but with all of our kids, we are a large group. We have 13 kids under 6 and four more are on the way! We love our small group. Having been together for several years, we have made some pretty close bonds.

Not a problem this year. He jumped right in.
Abbey was a pro from last year...
To this year...
|Yes, their baskets were Halloween and Sand buckets, that's all we had.|
|Being with good, good friends!|
Easter morning, thanks to Nana and Grandaddy, my two were decked out in Easter finery. I took their pictures in front of the "Isaiah bushes", as Abbey calls them.
|Mr. GQ, gotta work on the smile.|
|My youngest pretty girl.|
|One day, I'm going to get a good "posed" smile from Elijah.|

Then, it was back to "Egg huntin'"
|Look at the loot!|
This year, Abbey has really taken hold of the real reason for Easter. She has asked to read that story several nights as her bedtime story. She's fascinated by the details. We've shared many times about Jesus dying and coming back to life. It's such a privilege to help her know the Lord Jesus more and more!
