HE is Risen! Happy Easter!

Today is the defining holiday in my Christian faith.  In Luke 24: 6, the angels tell the women coming to Jesus' tomb, "He is not here; he has risen!" It is a wonderous and amazing event that I believe with all of my being.  I thank God every day for this.

Easter was great. We started out the day with a trail of candy leading down our stairs and to the Easter baskets! I love to hear Cole surprised and excited like he was. We had a small Easter egg hunt and then a big breakfast!  Gotta love Paula Dean. I found this scrumptous french toast cassarole that was just out of this world yummy.

We went to a new church.  (The church we were attending for months turned out to be not so great but that is a story for another day.)  The service was good- we'll try it again before making a decision. 

Then my parents and Jay and Kerry came over. Fun!!  We had a wonderful time with them and Cole got to watch Tiger Woods play while watching The Masters with Grandpa and Jay.  I even admit to loving watching this tournament.  I grew up in a golf family- and the "ping" of the club hitting the ball is still one of the greatest sounds to me.  I long to play again some day!

Anywho- we had a great feast for dinner.  Prime rib a la Tyler Florence, and many other sides from recipes from my friends at the Food Network.  I don't like peas but Brendan does so I found a recipe for peas with garlic, parsley, prosciutto, and shallots.  It was actually good!

Both Cole and Charlotte had a great day filled with lots of chocolate, love, and family!

Here is a photo of Easter last year and one of this year, plus a really great one of the whole gang! And because there are so many great photos, enjoy the slideshow set to Vivaldi's The Four Seasons: Spring!

I really love the group shot you took! The slide show is great as well--perfect music. It's amazing to see how much both Cole & Charlotte have grown from last year to this year!

Happy Easter!!
