Finally...an Easter Post

Wow, almost a week late on this one....but I am determined to do a post about Easter! We had a great Easter, busy, but great. On Saturday night, we went to eat at Jason's parents house in Brownsville. We had so much fun. Jackson is definitely getting a personality and boy did he make himself known at their house.
Sunday morning, we woke up early to do the traditional Easter morning things...Easter bunny, breakfast and get ready for church.
Jackson loved his Easter basket!
Checking out his eggs

After he got into his Easter basket (and eating some jellybeans), we fed him a healthy breakfast of powered doughnuts! Yes, we are great parents!
Enjoying his doughnut!
After we got him all hopped up on sugar, we got him ready for church and dropped him off in the nursery. I'm sure they loved us for that. =)

After church, we went with every other family in Memphis to Memorial Park to take pictures.

Then we went to my parents house to eat the "traditional" Easter lunch. Ham, rolls.....you know what I'm talking about. Jackson got another Easter basket from my parents (he is not spoiled at all, right?)

Although we had a very busy weekend, we can't forget the purpose of Easter. It's not about a bunny, what you wear, or how many eggs you find. It's a day to rejoice that our Savior is alive! What a wonderful day!

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Phil 2:5-11
