2014 is Easter Morning....

Can I please freeze these boys forEVER!

Yep, my five heart beats....each and every single day. SO very, very thankful!

Ellie joined us for "big church" on Easter morning. 

We even have our hair parted the same way. Lol.
She couldn't look any more like me...Sorry Claire Bear, "it is what it is" ...
You gotta way more Momma Bear genes than Papa Bear. 

I love my crazy family.
and Complete.

Beautiful friends...
Ellie has built friendships with some of the girls on her gymnastics team over the years that will last forever. These two girls right here are such special friends in our lives. True loving, and genuine friends. We are grateful to "do life" with them. 

"eating his ear"...

Oh my goodie goodie gumdrops....
I look at these three and still see them posing on our front porch at 1, 3 and 7 years old.
TIME IS PASSING by waaayyyyy to quickly. 

Oh my sweet Jenna. Loving on her Beck Beck...
Precious time together. 

Getting ready for a baseball game and egg hunting.
I know one thing for sure. The memories we make at Mamaw's house will always involve two things...
Yummy foods, and OUTSIDE playtime. 

JD ....
Officially obsessed with Baseball!

Claire and Camille and Jenna ENOING!

Goofball. She was turning herself upside down and spinning in this eno, like a cocoon!

Man and his dog.

Mamaw and Papa..(and Lil Miss Paula Dean) the kitchen mixing up some crazy sweet crock pot treat.
Ellie called it "ooozing fudgey, chocolate lava crock pot cake"

Kids want candy for Easter, but Momma is super uber happy when they get Undies!

The Boys...OOOOooohhhh
Ready to take on --

Nana and Mr Howard watching the egg hunt....
weating to death..
all in the name of "watching grandkids play" Lol

Love this picture. 

Ellie making reese, cookie brownies for her teacher.
Somebody get this chick a gift certificate to the grocery store. She is always baking, making, creating some kind of delicacies in the kitchen.

Ending our Easter day with Resurrection rolls...


And because Jesus defeated death...we do the same.
Through the blood we are washed and through His Resurrection we find LIFE!

Thank you Jesus Christ for your sacrifice!

Happy Easter!
