Mark 16:1-6
When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"
But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
"Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. 

Easter is a fun holiday but let's never forget the real reason. HE HAS RISEN!

I keep trying to say this is the twins' first Easter. It's not. Last year was their first. Last year at Easter the twins were just a few weeks old. They were both in incubators fighting for their lives. Leila was so sick. We really couldn't think of anything else but those babies and were just trying to get through each day minute by minute. I guess that's why I keep trying to say this is their first.
I'm not sure if we'll do the whole Easter Bunny thing or not but we did go get a picture with him this year for the fun of it. The best picture we could get is below. This pic was taken right before Leila started screaming her lungs out at him :)
Today, the first Easter we could celebrate as a family of four, was a good day. The babies received their first Easter baskets with lots of goodies including some candy to try. My parents were able to come out and have Easter dinner with us. 

Logan went to the store with me Saturday night. He kept his ears on the whole time :)

I kept trying to get a pic of Leila with her goodies but
she was too focused on getting into it...

My bunnies :)

She LOVED her sucker!
