He is Risen!

What a beautiful Resurrection Day we had here in Jersey on Sunday! The weather was gorgeous! The slight chill in the air was hardly noticeable since the sun was shining so brightly!

It's one of the few holidays that we aren't able to go "home" to visit with our families so that makes it a little less hectic and more low-key than any other holiday for our family.

Before heading to church, Londyn Grace was excited to see what treats were waiting in her basket downstairs!

I used my childhood basket for LG again this year. My Mom Mom made it for me years ago and I used it nearly every Easter until getting married! (Yes, my mama still did a basket for me when I was in my twenties! :) )

A girl after her Mama's own heart! She loves Peeps! 

Her new adirondack chair was a steal at Wal*Mart for only $4.97! Her basket was filled with bubbles, sidewalk chalk, fruit pouches, a necklace and bracelet, a small magna doodle, Peeps, and easter eggs with jelly beans inside. She also got a puzzle and bath cups along with a new dress. 

After she played with her goodies, we had breakfast and then got dressed for church! 

How precious is her smocked bunny dress?!

She is such a sweetheart!!

It's amazing how much she has grown since last Easter!!

After church we came home and had our Easter meal. 

Tulips on the table make me happy! Especially in a mason jar!

Londyn Grace actually slept through dinner and had hers after her nap, but Daniel and I enjoyed the ham, homemade mashed potatoes, crockpot mac and cheese, and corn I prepared. I also made a chocolate pudding pie for dessert.

After evening service, a sweet friend was able to snap a family picture of the three of us. Goosey wouldn't smile, but I still love it!

Daniel took these pictures of LG and I! It's so rare that I'm actually in a picture with her since I'm usually taking them!

I love my girl!

It was a beautiful day celebrating our Risen and Returning Lord!

It's exciting to think about us being a family of four next Easter!


  1. I love LG's smocked bunny dress! And Charlotte has that same polka dot dress. She's wearing it today. Glad y'all had a happy Easter!
