Easter 2016

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. It's where we celebrate the hope and purpose found in our risen Savior. "He is not here for He has risen just as He said." Matthew 28:6

This year was extra special because it was Charlie's first Easter! Below are a few pictures we captured on Easter weekend.

Baby rolls and a baby sailor suit :) This outfit is extra special because it was his daddy's when he was a baby!

Charlie's Easter basket will be something we use every year, and this year is was literally big enough for him to fit into! ;) Eddie and I both have such fond memories of celebrating Easter during childhood, and we are looking forward to celebrating with our son in the years to come.


On Saturday, we took Charlie and his cousin Mckenzie to a local Easter egg hunt. Charlie had a blast watching all of the kiddos search for eggs and bounce in the inflatables. Since he didn't have any eggs in his basket, Mckenzie was so thoughtful and shared a few of hers! She also won the grand prize, a large stuffed pink bunny! (She was SO proud of that bunny!)

All of the Easter festivities, family time, egg hunts, baskets, and bunnies are all so much fun; but at the forefront of all that is the real reason we celebrate: the hope and purpose the resurrection brings to all of us. Praise Him from whom all blessings flow!

Reflections on Motherhood (after three months)

Sweet little boy. Our precious Charlie. I could stare at you all the time and never get tired of memorizing every little detail about you.

Time is already going by too fast; you have changed so much in three short months. Every day that goes by, we are figuring out our new normal together. You are teaching me so much! Daddy and I are so happy that you are ours to love.
