Good Friday and Easter Celebrations

Miss Zoey's birthday fell on Good Friday this year.  She was all smiles as waited until evening for the big moment that she would be officially 8 years old.

 
As usual, Jillian made the cake.  Yum....chocolate cake, chocolate frosting and cream cheese frosting for the decorative piping.

 And then it was Easter.
Truly the most important holiday for a Christian.  If Christ did not rise, our faith is in vain, as Paul said.
It never ceases to cause my heart to REJOICE and be in AWE that Jesus would do all of that for me...for you...for us all.
Jordan was baptized this morning!  Here is a shot that Molly took of his video testimony.  He was so excited and sweet.

Then it was home to eat Easter dinner, get into Easter baskets and have an egg hunt.
Jillian didn't want to be in the egg hunt this year.  {sob - children should not be allowed to grow up so fast}

Jake seems to have overshot the egg.

WHAT a joyous time and great pictures. I"m guessing from the cake that Zoey is a football fan!
What a blessing you are to these 10 children!
