~Happy Resurrection Day!~

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.
"Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."
And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

Matthew 28:5-8

Here are the words to a song that I enjoy thinking upon this time of's called:
Up from the Grave He Arose
1. Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior, waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord!
Refrain: Up from the grave he arose; with a mighty triumph o'er his foes; he arose a victor from the dark domain, and he lives forever, with his saints to reign. He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!
2. Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior, vainly they seal the dead, Jesus my Lord! (Refrain)
3. Death cannot keep its prey, Jesus my Savior; he tore the bars away, Jesus my Lord! (Refrain)

Last Saturday we had a get together with family on my dad's side. :-) It was a nice time!

Pictured here is my grandma with the wonderful meal that she prepared!

For dessert there were cute marshmallow bunnies adorned with licorice scarfs, surrounded by colorful jelly beans! Yum! ;-)

My grandma also made a rabbit shaped cake which was topped with coconut, chocolate chips, licorice and also jelly beans. Mmmmm! :-)

Here's a picture of two of my cousin's. :-)

And featured in this picture are my two brother's!

In the afternoon we hid plastic eggs for my brothers and cousin's to find. :-)

And the hunt was on...... :-)


On Sunday we went to my other grandparents house!
After a wonderful meal my cousin, younger brother's and I engaged in a game of "catch-a-phrase" as well as "uno" and later "base" out side. (Base is like "hide and seek" only you have to run and tag a "base" before the person who is "it" tags you!)

My brother's and other cousin happened to wear coordinating outfits that day! :-)


..after hiding a few "dyed" eggs along with some plastic one's, my brother's and cousin enjoyed hunting for them!

Have a great day!
