He IS RISEN! And God answers prayers. Such amazing truths. This Easter was amazing for many reasons but mainly experiencing it through my children's eyes. Their sweet, innocent, pure faith is so beautiful. They love Jesus...and I LOVE that! This was the first year they actually could tell you what Easter truly means to us as believers in Christ. I pray daily that they will never lose their sweet, innocent pure faith they have now!
We had such a fun weekend filled with grilling out, setting up our new swing set, play outside a ton (egg hunt included), worshiping God with our friends and family, and a great meal with part of my side of our family. SO thankful for a blessed weekend.
I don't think they can get any more beautiful than they already are:) Anna & Allie.
My handsome heart-breakers, Benjamin & Baron.
They humored me....or maybe I bribed them with chocolate.....either way, I love these kinds of pictures.
I love my family. But for the record....I dressed myself in yellow and brown to kind of coordinate with the kids....Brian got dressed after me. Right honey?
We're going on an egg hunt....
Counting their spoils. They were more excited to find pennies in the eggs instead of candy!
When did they turn into such big kids? Seriously?
My mom, grandparents and my uncle with the kids. We love you guys!
Mom and Dad love their grand babies!
Ok...so you know me--super sentimental when it comes to looking back at pictures. So here's a flash back of our last 5 Easter pictures!
Enjoy and God Bless!

Isn't it AMAZING what a difference a few years can make?
I got to meet and chat with Lysa Terkeurst at a women's conference. She's great!
Can't tell we're related at all right?:) Mom, myself and my grandma.
At the conference with Melanie, one of my best friends for the last 20 yrs. Don't know what I'd do without you girl! Thanks for a great weekend!
Goofballs. We're always trying to think of fun new ways to take pictures:)

Pa, Baron, Ben, Anna, Allie, & Nana.
Merry Christmas 2011
Anxiously awaiting present time....
We let the kids buy each other a gift. The boys bought for each other and the girls for each other. It was SO cute taking them to the store to pick out just the right gift. They were so into it and I loved that they enjoyed giving to others!
While in Alabama for Christmas, we were able to hang out with some of our favorite people, the Coleman's! This picture was taken just days before they 4th child was born. So now between the 2 couples there's 4 daughters and 4 sons all under the age of 6. God did tell us to be fruitful and multiply.....so we did:)
We LOVE our grandmama!
We love our Pa-Pa and our cousins Alana and Maddie. ( Pa-Pa went to be with the Lord March 28th, 2012. You will always be missed, but we will see you in heaven!)
We love our Granddaddy!
Grandmama with her little grandbabies.
That's a whole lot of cute!
Out little Auburn Tiger cubs!
Going on a hike with Daddy at Grandmama's house.
We had a family movie night with popcorn and chocolate milk (yes...they wanted chocolate milk....could be worse I guess). We watched "The Wizard of Oz" with them for the first time. They loved it.
My pretty princesses.
My lil men.
My paternal grandparents with their great grandkids! We love you!
What a mess!
Baron looking like his papaw---sometimes he looks like my dad but most of the time he looks JUST like Brian, and his father and grandfather:)

Helping Mimi play games on her Ipad.
Love this picture. Baron showing his great grandfather how to play music on an Iphone.
There was NO tearing Brian away from the Auburn game.....
We had a great holiday season. Sorry I had to condense it down to just a few pictures. I let myself get behind on the blog and it's so hard to catch up.
Praying for an AMAZING 2012!
