"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

A Blessed Easter!

HE HAS RISEN! Easter is so special in our home. Not only are we celebrating the fact that our Lord lives, but it was the first mass Kai ever attended after we came home with him, almost 2 years ago on Easter weekend. It was awesome sharing time with family and knowing that our princess, Anna Grace, is now home with us and our family is complete, well, umm...maybe. Possibly. ::smile::

Easter started off with an egg hunt on Saturday morning, where we were joined by two adorable new friends, Hailey & Hannah from Vietnam. The kids had a lot of fun, but unfortunately, it started to rain and we had to leave early. I didn't get baskets for the kids this year because I knew that their respective Godparents would, and boy(!!) did they ever! I think they thought Easter was Christmas!

After a beautiful mass on Sunday, the family all gathered, along with my sister's husband's family and had a great time at brunch, our usual tradition after mass. The kids then received all of their goodies. When we got home, I let them open their baskets and have a few chocolates and play with all their new toys. They each retreated to their own corners at first while surrounded by their goodies, and then slowly, they started sharing (wanting what the other one had) until everything broke out into pure chaos, about an hour later. At bedtime, they were all snuggled in with a new litter each of bunnies keeping them company.

All in all, it was an awesome Easter and we are so blessed not only to have such a great family, but to know that the price for our sins have been paid because God sacrificed his only son for us to have that blessing.

Here are some pictures of our weekend. Enjoy
