What a wonderful Easter weekend. We started the weekend by heading up to my parents house on Friday evening. Mom made enchiladas, we hid eggs for Jackson's Easter egg hunt, and we played a game of Rummikub. Derek says he won, but he also cheated so that the game could end and we could get Jackson home to bed. The competitive part of me was SO annoyed, but the mom part knew that it was probably for the best.

Ooh, I found one!
He had to open each egg as he found it and eat the treat inside before moving on to the other eggs!
Isn't he handsome?

We participated in our church Easter egg hunt on Saturday. Jackson didn't sit still for 2 seconds during the telling of the Easter story. Oh well, maybe next year (hopefully!). Jackson did find some eggs- though they were all out on the kiddie playground, so he was really interested in playing rather than finding silly eggs.

Enjoying his hotdog and chips!

Of course he was super handsome for church on Sunday morning. Did I mention I got his entire outfit for $3 at Penny's after Christmas? What a steal!

He was in no mood to smile for the camera all day-stinker.

We drove up to Richmond for lunch to hang out with Derek's grandma and side of the family. Jackson had so much fun looking up the boys that were just a little bit older and he even got his turn to try out some t-ball!

Opening up his Easter goodies from Great-Grandma. He definitely loved the Peeps!

We spent the rest of the day with family and friends- precisely what makes holidays so great. What a great way to celebrate the Lord's day.

Just a quick bit more: As most of you know, Derek and I teach the 4-5th graders at our church and our class yesterday morning was just great. Since most of the students in our class attend the Christian school, sometimes it can be a daunting task to teach them about the Bible since they probably know more than I do. But yesterday, we were really able to talk not about the specifics of how Christ was crucified and the details of his resurrection-- we got to discuss why it is so important to celebrate this holiday, how this is story is the foundation of what we believe. We looked up verses and the kids worked on how they can share this news with others! I love getting in great discussions with these 10 and 11-year-olds who can be such great thinkers and doers when given the opportunity. I love being their teacher- though they have a lot to teach me as well!
