Easter Sunday

2 Corinthians 5:21 "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him"

This is the reason my family celebrates Easter, Resurrection Sunday.
We who are born sinners cannot earn our way to Heaven. {ephesians 2:8 "for by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God"} But God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to come live a perfect life on earth so that He could take on the sin of the world and be crucified. 3 days later He defeated death and rose from the grave, so that we too will one day rise up and be with God in Heaven forever.

we also did a couple easter egg hunts
this is our practice run that we did with a few friends

{this is how old school gangsters do}

then we had the real deal with the fam on Resurrection Sunday {easter sunday}
{he found the candy inside the egg immediately}
{it took him a little while longer to start eating the candy ... but still found it}
{with all the kids eating the candy first ... the easter egg hunt didn't last long}
{the cousin's}
{preg sisters ... I don't look big at all ;) }
{preg hubsters}
{all in all it was a pretty awesome easter, I'd say}
{i love my family}

He is Risen!


  1. I don't look pregnant next to you, I just look like I ate too much Easter ham (and potatoes, and rolls, and cupcakes, and...) Boo :( And for the record, I still think it was creepy feeling touching bellies with you

  2. We have a Barnfather tradition...we do an Easter egg hunt with the kids, but NO candy inside. They get MONEY!!! They LOVE it. We give each a kid a certain color egg to find, John hides them according to age, and then let them at it! Elyse really DOES look pregnant...saw her today at Bible Study and you both look cute together preggy!
