He is Risen!

I love being a Christian and celebrating holidays surrounding Jesus. I am alive because He lives! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend filled with the hope that Jesus gives.

Our weekend was filled with friends and family. I love this picture because it shows perfectly where Jenny and I are in life right now. Jenny is one of my BFs, and our boys are four months apart. We just smiled as Benjamin and Zach wiggle and fuss and try to do their own thing. You have to laugh instead of cry sometimes! Motherhood does that to you, I guess. ; )

Zach loved the Easter egg hunt at Todd and Jenny's church. One thing I love about our son is that he is a very passionate and intense little boy (as you can see from this pic). He picked up some eggs, threw some eggs, stole eggs from other kids' baskets (which I quickly returned), and also placed eggs in other kids's baskets. Thanks for all your hard work, Todd!

Abby (one of my nieces) sweetly walking around. She is trying to dodge Zach's eggs I'm sure.

"Can I eat some chocolate now, Mom?"

This is another one of those great pictures that I'll always remember trying to get together. Here we are...Sarah (another one of my dearest friends) with her three adorable kids, Zach and me, Jenny and Benjamin. I don't know what the other kids were doing because Zach was throwing a fit. I was trying to bribe him with sweettarts, but this didn't work very well. Always an adventure!

Can we say spoiled? ; ) In a good way, of course! I know the balloons are random, BUT they are easy and light (which is perfect since Zach LOVES any kind of ball and throws EVERYTHING in sight). Zach's Easter bucket is one of my favorite things. Jennifer told me about where to order one. I love it! Thanks, Jennifer!

I've already thought about how next year I need to coordinate Zach and his little sister's Easter outfits. I better get working on this. ; )

Lots of great pictures, but my favorite is the one of him about to throw the egg. Now, that I've spent time with him recently, it makes me laugh at how that picture totally captures who he is!! You're an amazing mom of one wonderful busy, little boy - you have my respect because I would not know what to do with a BOY!
