Noah quite enjoyed diving into his huge basket of goodies the Easter bunny left at Nana and Papa's house. He got puzzles, new shoes, a couple of movies, and some bubbles. Of course his favorite goodies were cars. This boy really loves his cars. After taking them all out of their packages and taking everything out of the basket, we headed outside to find eggs.
Noah did a great job at spotting and pointing out the eggs, then hustling over to tuck them into his bucket. He insisted on carrying the bucket himself, even when it got full and heavy. He did finally accept a little help, but he still had to have a hand on it. When all the eggs had been found, we headed inside to find out what was inside the eggs. Some had chocolate bunnies, others had cars. Of course, he loved the cars. It was a great Easter Eve.
Easter Sunday meant an early service at church, where we were joined by Grandpa. Noah had another visit from the Easter bunny and got more fun treats. I think his favorite thing from this basket was a book called Mater and the Easter Buggy. Mater is his favorite. Noah's uncle Spencer and Aunt Lauren came over to have a tasty lunch with us. Uncle Aaron and Aunt Kelly came over later to visit and Noah got to play with his cousin Emsley. They are both growing so quickly and it was nice to see them play together. It was a great Easter weekend celebrated with family.
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
- Romans 6:8-11
