Easter 2009

All things considered, it was  a nice Easter.  Cold and rainy but fairly nice.  Personally, it was a hard Easter, the first missing Granny.  In addition to missing Granny, Justin's family lost a member of their family this past week.  While I never had the opportunity to meet her, I know that she is deeply loved and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of our family that is grieving the loss of Annie.  

It was also odd in that Uncle Adam was in California and we didn't get to see Aunt Leahna, Uncle Seth or Aunt Julie. But we did get to see cousin Casey, Uncle Adrian and Aunt Connie which is always a treat.  

Here are some pictures from dying eggs Saturday night:
Grandma Kathy, Grandpa Tom, Noah & mommy
Hummm, pink egg:
He actually cracked this one open!
"I don't get this egg thing!"
The Easter bunny was quite generous this year.  Who am I kidding, he was quite generous last year too!  Here's Noah playing with some of the toys left in his basket (or beside his basket: his basket runneth over)

His new phone:
His new slinky:
His new lawn mower (it's actually a bubble mower, but I wasn't about to have Noah shampoo the carpets!!!  We'll add the bubbles when we move to our new house):
His new puzzle:
Relaxing with Daddy and watching his new Elmo DVD:
Relaxing with Mommy before going to Church Easter morning:
Playing with his bath boat before Church:
After Church, his first hot chocolate!!!  It was YUMMY!:
At Grandma Debbie & Papa's house:
My beautiful 9 year old niece, Mary:
My beautiful, almost 7 year old niece, Ellie:
My three favorite kiddos:  Ellie, Noah & Mary:
I LOVE this picture: it embodies how much Noah adores his cousins and how he loves to spend time with them:

The trio at my cousin Joanne's house for Easter supper:
"Hmmm, what is this?"
"Bunny?  I think you need a hug."
"Mmmmm, my first chocolate bunny!  Oh, so yummy!"
Maracas the Easter Bunny left!
