We were up North for Easter. It was a glorious time. Adeline and I were there for 5 days before my sisters came. She was delighted when they finally came! She so badly wants to be a big kid. For now, she is their little mascot that is sometimes welcome and sometimes a snitch during hide-and-seek.
On Saturday, our family friends invited us over for an Easter party.
Here is our attempt at a cousin picture. Owen is the designated guard to keep Addie in place.
Owen's face makes this picture.
We gave up.
Gerrit was the only one of our hubbies that could be there, so we got a sisters and kids-only picture. I don't think we have another like it!
And here are our attempts at a family portrait. If you've ever met a toddler, you can guess that it might be a challenge to get a good picture.
Well, the good news is: Easter is not about successful family photo. It's about our Risen Savior. And He was celebrated indeed.
