Our Easter 2009

Easter weekend was jam packed and fun filled. Saturday we took Ava to see the Easter bunny. I haven't had a chance to get that picture on the computer yet. She didn't cry, but the picture wasn't all that great. It was also a special weekend for our family. Not only did we celebrate Christ's resurrection, but Saturday evening, Zach was confirmed and joined the Catholic church. Saturday Zach's parents and grandma came down to visit and spend some time with Ava before we headed to our church celebration.

We had a late night on Saturday night. Church didn't start until 8:00 and Ava slept for about 45 minutes and then woke up. Needless to say, it was way past her bedtime when she finally went to sleep. She could have slept - she's just too dang nosey to do it!! She finally went to bed and when she woke up, she had a visit from the Easter bunny!

I love this look of pure glee!

Checking out her loot

I'm not sure about any other kids out there, but Ava loves the tv remote. When we saw this toy remote, there was no doubt it'd be a big hit. We just didn't know how much! The girl loves it! She'd always go for the real one no matter where it was laying, so we are just leaving this one laying around and she spots it and does her best to get to it! We then got ready to head to church in the pouring rain!

All dressed up (and yes, she did wear this on Saturday night too - gotta get the use out of it!)

Our family before church (she's already looking sleepy)

Ava and Caroline (and their mommies) after church

Those were two sleepy little girls - and apparently they were both looking off at the same thing. I wonder what was so interesting? After church we went to my parents' house for a big family Easter dinner. The rain prevented the big egg hunt from happening so we improvised and the kids just took turns picking eggs out of the basket. Ava was all about that - every time it was her turn to pick, she would put her hands on two eggs, not just one! Smart girl! What a fun (and exhausting) weekend!!


  1. awww...ava looked so pretty in her easter dress!! and congratulations to zach on being confirmed...that is wonderful. brad also joined the church before we got special.

    yes, kate loves the remote too. it's so funny to watch hold it and stare at the tv experimenting with what this button or that button is going to make the tv fun!! i never thought to get a toy one...yay for you!!

  2. You know our experience with the remote, too...I just want to find that one you got for'd be perfect for Caroline!

    And I'm glad to see Zach got a good pic of us! In the one Darren took, there's something strangely wrong with my mouth! But the girls are both looking off camera in ours too...I think they were looking at Ava's daddy! :)

  3. I love the pictures, Ava looked just as cute as could be!

  4. What a busy day you had! Beautiful pictures!

  5. Looks like you all had a great Easter celebration! Love all the pics!
