|Family Picture on Easter|
First, I have to write and share pictures from Easter. He is Risen! Alleluia, Alleluia!
As I've posted before, the kids have become very involved in Lent this year. They willingly gave up television and video games all through Lent and meat on Fridays. I have to say we haven't missed television. Even though we can go back to watching it, the kids haven't asked for it, and I'm finding that I am getting more done because I'm not turning it on to "relax." It's been good.

We finished church with an Easter egg "hunt" for the kids. The Knights of Columbus put this on every year and they continue to do a fantastic job organizing it. This year Boogs actually came home with candy. Last year an older kid snookered him and traded Boogie pencils for his candy. No candy for him last year...not that it was an entirely bad thing...

To each of you I wish you blessings of new hope, eternal life, and new beginnings. Happy Easter!
1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... (NIV)
