Easter

What a beautiful day we had to celebrate Easter and Mark and I's 18th Anniversary!
The sun was shining so it was wonderful to be able to have our annual egg hunt for the kids outside this year.















Arianna found the "golden egg". Every year there is 1 golden year and the kids have to take turns finding it. It has $5 inside so it is a real treasure to find!







Each of the girls found one of these special eggs. It has a cross on it and it's empty- signifying the empty grave which is the REAL reason we celebrate this day!!



I hope you had a wonderful day today and I'll be back tomorrow with pictures from our vacation.

Hi Cheri, I am so happy that you had a beautiful day on Easter to enjoy egg hunting outside. What fun!

Happy Anniversary also. I hope you enjoyed your special day.

Thank you so much for your support, care, concern and prayers. You will never know how much they meant to me. I had a much better day yesterday and today is looking good too.

I may see a doctor tonight at 7 PM for them to make a decision as to whether I will need more antibiotics or not. Mine run out on Wednesday so they will decide tonight.

Have a wonderful week,
Love,
Cheryl

Nice day for an egg hunt! I like Halle's glasses. I was wondering if she had them yet or not!
