Easter {2012}

Easter seems like it was FOREVER ago! I am not really remembering much of what we did outside of what is in these pictures, so I'm just gonna let the pictures do the talking.

Getting a picture with both kids looking at the camera is not so easy. But I think sometimes the outtakes are even better.

After church we headed over to Mom & Tim's house for lunch. Good thing the Easter Bunny came through for them over there because he didn't do so great at our house. He apparently thinks it's a waste of time and money to make a big deal about it around here since the kids are so young and all. What a cheap & lazy dude, jeez.

A bucket of goodies, just for ME?!
Suddenly he became a fan of carrots
That's it, Bubba...just keep looking at the camera...don't mind me at all...
We tried pretty much all day to get a family picture. Obviously not everybody cooperated.

The Boyd Family, minus 1 (Harper seems pretty darn happy, ha!)
This was as good as it got...
I don't know why the kids weren't excited to take pictures. It couldn't be because they wanted to eat candy and goof around and hunt Easter eggs, could it? Nah.

Eggs and candy sure are fun but I hope that one day my kids will grow to truly appreciate what Easter is really all about. I pray every day that as they get older they will not only know Jesus but passionately choose Jesus; not because they learned about him growing up and it's what their parents and friends believe, but because they are captivated by the love and mercy that he offers to each and every one of us. It took me 24 years to accept his extension of grace, but when I finally did there was no looking back!

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood.   
Romans 3:23-25, NLT
