Back from Spring Break...

 "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said." Matthew 28:6

I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL Easter! Ours was fabulous. My baby sister, Becky came down to visit. And by baby sister, I mean my almost 20 year old sister. We had a girls night out with dinner, shopping and a movie. I'm not saying which one we saw because that would embarrass Becky. She's super cool and I'd hate to ruin that for her by telling the whole world that she saw and enjoyed a movie with Miley Cyrus. Oops. I will say that this guy was in the movie and that she was more than okay with that:

Here is the only pic I got of Beck and I. It was taken Easter morning by Jackson. Not too bad for a 3 1/2 year old photographer. 

Here is our family pic from that morning before church. Um, preschoolers and infants are NOT awesome at getting their picture taken. Okay, neither am I, actually. Here is Chase pouting and Jackson doing his "cute" face (according to him) which actually looks like he is eating imaginary corn on the cob. Kudos to Alan on producing a normal smile. =)

We headed to church and the service was especially meaningful because...well, He is alive. Then we headed to the in-laws for a wonderful outdoor lunch and an Easter egg hunt.  It was sunny and warm and just one of those perfect days where all is right in the world.

Chase hung out with Megan.

Becky and Jackson and Papa found a lot of Easter eggs. Debbie (my mother in law) isn't pictured because she was taking most of the pictures and making our yummy lunch and dessert (the poached pears with ice cream, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and slivered almonds was absolutely not a flat belly diet meal...but so worth it. =)).

Then we headed to the car and made our way to Northern Virginia for SPRING BREAK! Lots more pics and blogs to come!

Your family picture couldn't be funnier. It's one that Chase and Jackson will love to talk and laugh about when they're older. And yes to Alan's facial hair, looks nice.

How embarrassing for you and Becky! I would NEVER watch a movie with Miley Cyrus... OR a show with her for that matter. ;) Those Easter pics are just magical. It really was a pretty day!

At least you can pass it off on someone who is almost 20. I and another almost 30 year old went and saw this, and cried, and enjoyed it. :)

Hahahahaha! I LOVE Jackson's new "cute" face. It almost looks sinister.
