Easter 2011

We had such a wonderful Easter. Matt had Good Friday off so we got to have a 3 day weekend and it was fun filled! Friday, we went and got free coffee at Starbucks. Since it was also Earth Day Sbucks gave out free coffee if you brought your own mug. Then we went grocery shopping. When we got home we then watched a movie and it was wonderful just spending the day all together.
Saturday, we had lunch with our friends the Daughtry-Grubbs and then dyed eggs.

Matt was very excited about egg dying

This is what Ruthie did while we dyed eggs. She is just a little too young, but I think next year she might be able to enjoy it a little.
And this is what Maggie did. We all were around the table like one big happy family!
Here are our 11 eggs. one busted open while boiling.

On Easter Sunday, we went to church, but it was very rainy. Therefore, no egg hunt for us so we just came on home after the service and had lunch with our friends, the Bevils. We had pork loin, green bean casserole, potato salad, rolls, deviled eggs, and punch bowl cake.

Here is Ruthie in her little Easter outfit including bonnet!
She did not care for the bonnet

We had a wonderful Easter weekend even with 2 tornado sirens (one Friday night at 7pm and one early Saturday morning at 2:30 am) and lots and lots of rain! Now, we must go back to life tomorrow, but only after getting to spend an amazing weekend celebrating our Risen Savior!
