The Kester Family- Easter 2013- Hoping for a busier photo next year!!

Easter 2013 was blessed! We had a great time celebrating our risen Lord with our family 🙂

We began this morning with Easter baskets, because you are never too old for Easter baskets and candy, duh.

Our Easter Basket

Ree’s Basket

Yes, my mom still does Easter baskets for all of us and for the kids.  She set the kids baskets up on the coffee table

For the kiddies!

My mom is the best.

After opening our baskets, I ran my mile and then we got ready for church. I love church on Easter Sunday- especially the “Hallelujah Chorus”- my absolute favorite. I also love singing “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” and “Crown Him with Many Crowns.” The joy of Easter morning is so encouraging and so beautiful!

After church, we had everyone (except for Kristianna, Alex, and Holly- who are in NC and were dearly missed) here at our house for Easter dinner. My mom made SO much food: ham AND turkey, green beans, corn, salad, stuffing, coleslaw, potato salad, rolls, salad, applesauce, cornbread, baked beans, and peach cake, carrot cake, and cupcakes for dessert.  Yup- she made all that.  She is the bomb.com.

I loved having everyone here- especially the kids, who loved their baskets and Easter egg hunt!

Love these kiddies.

As I sit here and think about how blessed our day was today, I can’t help but imagine how different next year {hopefully} will be.  I can’t wait to have excited babies to make Easter baskets for, to buy pretty dresses, white socks, and Easter bonnets- and maybe even an Easter suit for my boy.  I pray that the Lord blesses us with two children and that His plan is revealed to us this week.  Praying for our Easter miracle!  Like I say every Sunday- maybe this will be our week!

Trusting and believing in the power of our risen Lord.

Happy Easter!

How did you celebrate Easter?
