Easter 2010

Just thought I would share a few snapshots of my sweet little "grand-bunnies" on Easter morning. I finished knitting Miss Ava Claire's dress in time but I didn't get a picture of the top of the dress - it was SO cold outside we didn't even think to take off her sweater. Ava and her mommy had matching gold shoes - so pretty!
Believe it or not, the girls did not intentionally match the kids outfits. But it made us all kinds of happy that they ended up that way.


I knit both the babies these sweet little bunnies - they are Susan B. Anderson's pattern Hop. I just love that name - Hop. Somehow I neglected to get a picture of both of them.

Even though the weather didn't cooperate - not even one little bit - it was a great day and everyone had fun. We all had enough food and candy to last us for the next 6 months.

We had 461 in church this morning. 461 in our little town in our little church that used to think breaking 100 was a miracle. 461 people heard my husband preach about the hope of the Resurrection today. 461 people heard that God sent his only Son to die in place of us, and on the third day He came back to life and He lives today. 461 people heard how all they have to do is ask Jesus to forgive them of their sins and they too can live forever in Paradise. 461 people were given just a glimpse into what Paradise could possibly be - even though our minds cannot even begin to imagine.

All in all, I'd say we had a very good day.

Robin, 2 of the 461 people really enjoyed the sermon. Dennis and I were talking about that last night. WOW, 461 that is alot, and Chuck did a great job. I am going to have to be more careful what I say on facebook LOL

All in all, you definitely did have a good day. We did, too. Our new pastor brought a wonderful message - the church was full of people I've never seen before - a very good thing. Easter Marketplace was huge. Weather wasn't fabulous, but not horrible.

The kiddoes look adorable - the matching was perfect, if not intentional. Can't wait to see the rest of that gorgeous dress.
