RESURRECTION DAY CELEBRATION

My granddaughter Miranda who was recently Baptised found some candies for her children that actually represent the occasion. I am so happy to see proper symbols instead of all the usual rabbits and birds and I am very proud of her for the Godly lessons she is teaching her children. Way to go honey girl!
The big basket of candy for everyone has become a family tradition. I haven't heard anyone complain either. LOL!

Here are some of the children waiting for the egg hunt with the 'big people' who will help. The kids were so excited that it was hilarious to watch them. It was all they could do to stand still long enough for me to take this picture.


Victoria is three this year so this is really the first egg hunt she understood. Being quite a bit younger than the other kids, we let her hunt alone first until she had about half a dozen eggs. You wouldn't believe how fast those little legs can run. I sure got a kick out of her as in her excitement she just began running in a big circle forgetting for a moment that she was on an egg hunt!
When the other kids joined in the fun she became so wound up she was giggling and running all over the place. I loved watching her.

Here is my precious Princess Hailee. She spent most of the afternoon carrying her cousin Aimee's little chihuahua Tucson around in her jacket. She said the dog was cold. Tucson loved his warm bed as well the affection Hailee gave her.

After a huge feast and the egg hunt we all sort of sat back to catch our breath. My daughter brought out a surprise for us. Her daughter Aimee is expecting a baby girl the first of July and we got to see a video of the last ultra sound. This picture shows the Baby's head, hands and feet. I just want to hug her.
Aimee is being treated for high blood pressure. We are doing a lot of praying for her and the baby. Apparently there is some concern. I will be more specific when we get the next report. In the meantime your prayers will be very appreciated.

My new Great Granddaughter will be named Lillian Isabella. Her nickname will be Lily Belle as you can see posted above her crib. ( My maternal grandma's name was Lillian so this tickles me) Her mama loves horses and all things western so Baby Lily will begin her life surrounded by the things her mama loves. Her Grandma Kathy made her a darling western quilt. I'll get a photo of it posted soon.
This week my youngest daughter and I will be planning and shopping for the baby shower. I am a little excited. Can you tell? LOL!

I was shocked to see the baby's closet is fully stocked. Three sections that look like the one above. One section for newborn to three months, another for up to 6 or nine months and still another with larger clothes and believe me every outfit is absolutely precious. I am so amazed at all the gorgeous clothes that are being made for babies these days.


This little dress is newborn to three month size. I fell in love with it but when I saw what was under it I couldn't believe my eyes!

"She wore an itsy-bitsy- teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikini"
YES!! it actually is a bikini!
*****
I hope your Resurrection Day celebration was as wonderful as mine.

I so enjoyed seeing pictures from your day and I can well imagine how much fun the children had hunting for their Easter eggs, especially Victoria! lol I'm so hoping that one day I'll be able to watch Lily going on an Easter egg hunt as well!!

Congratulations on finding out that you will become a great grandmother once again! My prayers are with Aimee, hopefully they can get her blood pressure under control. I agree with you, it's amazing the clothes they have now for babies, especially little girls.

Have a wonderful week, dear Bev. xoxo

How fun hunting for Easter eggs! Kids sure have a grand time searching for those hidden eggs!

I had a nice Easter too, going to church and then eating at my neighbor's home. It was all great. Plus celebrating the fact that Christ is risen!!!

I will certainly pray for Aimee and that all goes well.

Hugs,
Rachel

I well remember the fun & excitement of the big egg hunt with the cousins, as well as coloring & decorating the eggs the night before. I don't think kids know what colored eggs are these days. lol

I will add Aimee & Baby Lily to my prayer list.
