He Is Risen! (Plus, the New House Stuff)

We can't have a conversation without talking about our new house (moving in less than two weeks!!). Case in point, no Easter post for you unless we get to talk about it. Tim has been a busy, happy little beaver installing blinds and clothes drying racks. He truly does enjoy these projects getting the house ready. Sarah likes that he likes them and just wants to move in. All that lovely space just waiting to be filled with our furniture and toys and noise. It's going to be glorious.
PLUS the driveway is poured!!
Ok, you made it. On to Easter: Besides the obvious celebrating that Jesus is Alive we also get to celebrate that Uncle Michael and Stella are HOME. As in Michael is out of the Navy. After two days of travel, they were both beat. Stella was sore from the flights and seems to be a little injured, but it slowly recovering.
On Holy Saturday, our girls got to color eggs at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Their aunts and uncles joined in - they may be adults, but they cannot resist coloring eggs. All young at heart.
That afternoon we drove down to Carmel to be with Tim's sister and her family overnight. Our girls continue to be the luckiest girls in the world and were asked to color Easter eggs again!
The next morning, we were the first ones awake and slipped down stairs to see what the Easter Bunny had left us!
 Mommy got a BIG Chocolate bunny. Yummy.
Then off to Mass, an Easter egg hunt, and attempts at a family picture. We did get a picture of Vivian levitating. So that's like a nice family picture.
Close as we're gonna get. How many more years will they let Mommy get away with dressing them in matching outfits?
Speer Cousins + Helmkamp Cousins = Love
Happy Easter and prayers that your family pictures were cuter than ours.
