We spent Good Friday reading about "The Story of Easter", decorated eggs, chicks, and bunnies with stickers, enjoyed lunch from McDonalds (Filet of Fish, just like when I was a kid and spent Good Friday with my grandparents) then had a nice Tilapia & asparagus dinner once Daddy came home from work.
On Saturday the grandparents and Aunt A & Uncle R arrived for our family Easter dinner, where we also dyed Easter eggs ....
As you can see Addison's interest lasted longer then Blake's he preferred to stuff is face with watermelon instead lol!
And had our very first Easter egg hunt!
We also chose to celebrate A & B's birthday with the family since they really missed out on things with being sick. (I promise we ARE having a BIG TWO DO ;) this summer though were everyone can celebrate with us). I even made a bunny cake... Growing up, Jake's Aunt always made a bunny cake for Easter and Jake talks of that memory fondly. We decided it was something we wanted to carry on with our family, the twins loved it. Blake's first response was "Yummy" haha.
Sunday we went to church and a good friend joined us for service and lunch then we spent the rest of the day relaxing and eating leftovers, and watched the ending of "The Bible" on History Channel, which has truly brought it all full circle. It was the perfect weekend and a great way to celebrate our Risen Lord.
We hope you all had a fabulous Easter as well. From our family to yours....
And because it is a true testamite of God's amazing work - I present to you three Easter's from NICU till now:
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believe in me will never die." John 11:25-26
