Catching Up: Easter

We miss Dylan at Easter time and always! And this wasn't our year with Caitlin and Sean (we took them Big Chocolate Easter Eggs filled with coconut cream and a small gift the evening before), so here are the three at home: Conor, Lyndsay, Aiden.

Blogger has changed things.  It used to be that I had to upload my pictures in reverse order to have them be in proper chronology.  It appears that is no longer the case, but it took so long to upload these pictures, that I wasn't about to scrap the post and begin again.  So, the pictures are in the wrong order, but Easter was such a blur this year anyway. . .

Sleepy-head Conor finally found his basket hidden in the boys' closet.  We have 9am church, so baskets had to be found very early!

As per tradition, on Easter morning, the stone is rolled back from the tomb, revealing that He is not here, for He is risen!

Aiden was especially happy to find a gift card for Panda Express in his basket.  That Bunny knows him so well!

Lyndsay loves it when I take her Easter morning picture every year.  Not.  But it was her last year to participate in our Easter morning traditions, so she had to do what I said.

The kids go through their baskets to see what goodies the Bunny brought them.  Conor is fond of his new Batman sunglasses.  

On Saturday evening, we dyed the eggs, and then Conor had his plastic egg hunt in the backyard.  Good times, good times.  Conor really keeps the traditions going, since the other kids are so grown up.  Everyone else loves the excuse to participate.  Aiden is the one who hid the eggs this time.
