Easter Part 1

Saturday morning we attended our church's annual Easter egg hunt. It is a lot of fun, but we have missed a couple of them and hadn't been since Ella and her friends were barely 1 year old.

This is Ella at her first Easter Egg Hunt in 2007. Oh man, I loved that dress!

In the background you can see Ava & Jackson! I miss those teeny tiny babies!

And here is Ella this year! She's off to find those eggs.

Ella & her sweet friend Karoline.

The next sequence of pictures were hilarious. They involve us trying to get a group shot of all the kids together. Children kept getting added as we tried to herd them all together.

The final shot is Titus & Toby in the back. Ella & Karoline in the middle. And Justus, Bear & Klaire on the ground. I love this picture!

After the egg hunt, the kids always gather in the library to hear the Easter story.

When we first got to the church, Ella immediately went to look in the giant fish tank that is in our nursery with her good friend Toby. Well, of all mornings, one of the HUGE orange fish was dead on the bottom of the tank. And here are more than normal the amount of kids wanting to look in the tank. Well, Ella of course pointed to the fish and said, "Look at that fish." Jonas's daddy was standing by and told Ella, "Jonas said the fish is sleeping," to try to avoid any meltdowns from the other kids. Well, Ella looked right at him and very loudly said, "Noooo, that fish is DEAD." Ahhh...sweet Ella. I have a feeling trying to curtail some things in the future isn't going to work for this one.

Ella's haircut is just perfect! I love it for her little personality.

At least you know she will always keep it really with the other kids! :)

The last pic cracks me up...esp. with the pitiful added tears of one of the babies.

Ella is rocking it by the way :)

Awww...looks like ya'll had so much fun at the Easter Egg Hunt! I missed you on Easter too...I saw you in the choir and I saw Heath and Ella for like two seconds in the nursery. We had to run out of there after church because my parents and sister were waiting for us to eat lunch. I want to be sure to hug your neck this Sunday! Ella's Easter dress was just precious!
