Easter, so longed for, is gone in a day. ~James Howell
Easter is one of my favorite traditions. After worship service and lunch somewhere, we take family photos and then we hide eggs, hunt eggs and eat eggs and all manner of candy, and this Easter, God blessed us with an exceptionally beautiful day to be outside and enjoy family.
Daughter Holly and granddaughter Shelby boogie to a tune playing on daughter Kelly’s cell phone.
Ranft/Myers/Kimbrough Family ~ Kelly and Knox, me and Neil, Holly, Elijah, Shelby and Jerry [Kerry couldn’t join us—had to work]
My Grandpeeps! Shelby, Elijah, Knox
Knox already had his socks and shoes off and was on the trampoline when it was time for his family photo. His mom joined him [you know that old saying, If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em ~ works well here]
Kimbrough Family [minus Kerry]
My sister Jane and her daughters Sarah and Julia got to color eggs this year. They’re usually attending Lads To Leaders in Nashville Easter weekend, but the girls have grown up and out of this function. I love it that they are a part of our Easter tradition.
Shelby, Sarah, and Julia have outgrown the egg hunt, but we entice them into it anyway with well-hidden prize eggs [money is involved]. Neil is an exceptional prize egg hider.
Julia on the prowl for her egg ~ she did eventually find it but I’m sad to say I didn’t get a picture. How did that happen?
It took Knox a while to warm up to the hunt, but he finally did get into the spirit.
Grandson Elijah spotted a prize egg but it wasn’t his and he didn’t give the location away to the other hunters.
Sarah found hers tucked under a flower pot
Knox found his in the tulips
Love these ladies! Julia, Jane, Sarah
Shelby found hers, too
Elijah is a good hunter, but it took him a while to find his prize egg.
The ladies having a pow wow….or something
Knox filled up his basket twice
Love to crack into those pretty hard boiled eggs and eat them sprinkled with salt. Looks like Elijah has his hands and mouth full.
If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly. I have no idea who said this [originally] but it is totally true.
Jane and Knox enjoyed some bubble blowing time in the sunshine. It just doesn’t get any better than this. What a fun afternoon!
Happy Easter, everyone!
…7For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. 8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.… Romans 5:7-9
