Happy Easter!

It wasn't our annual camping trip to Petit Jean, but we still had a good weekend. I did miss the sunrise service, singing "Because He Lives" as the sun rises over Stout's Point, but we did get to dress up pretty and go to our church which was also nice.  Friday the rain held off enough for a good Easter Egg hunt.  Emily liked finding "more egg."  Friday night we let her watch Tangled with her cousins.  She loved it...and stayed up way too late.  Then yesterday we went to the city's Easter Festival.  The mass egg hunt scared her.  She didnt want to get face paint or sit on the Easter rabbit (her words) lap, so she got a free hot dog and went to the slides.  She would have stayed there all day if it had been up to her, but I thought we shoudl come home, eat the hot dog (she ate 2...but no buns) and then take a nap.  Was not hard at all to get her to sleep!  We dyed eggs (no pictures of required all attention and we still managed to dye one of our chairs green...but have I ever mentioned I love my spot bot?)  then tried to mow the yard but the lawn mower didnt want to so it still needs done.  Then we went to bed early.  Easter morning we get up, she wants to go sit on the Easter rabbit's lap now (had to explain that was a limited time offer) and we give her an easter basket with a little candy, a stuffed dog and a Caillou book.  She LOVES the book.  We went to church, out to lunch, tried to find a lawn mower part (got it ordered) Then her cousins came back to get something they'd forgotten here the other day and played with her for a while.  She is now sleeping soundly.  And that sounds like a good idea...I'm tired too! 
 Is it cheating when someone leaves their bucket behind and you find eggs in it??
 Oh and dandelions are a lot of fun....its just instinct to blow those seeds everywhere, even when they are wet!
 She got her fingernails and toenails painted.
 She liked this egg at the park yesterday!  Wasnt a bunch of other people trying to get it!
 She loves herself!  Scares me but she is getting bigger.
 Riding on the dinosaur.
 Ok, so doesnt she look adorable even if she refused to pose????  She also had a headband that matched but she didnt leave it on very long....and the gloves came off and went on about 50 times before we ever got to church so they stayed in the car.
 Cute ....even with the lip sticking out...she's good at that face!
 Then we decided we didnt want to wear the hat.
I think Aunt Diane got better pictures of her smiling in her dress...but since she still uses film we'll have to wait to get those:) 

So Happy Easter....and remember the reason we celebrated today

John 3:16  For God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

And it just doesnt get any better than that!
