Easter 2014

On Easter we went to our church and then met the rest of the Kates clan at the ranch for a picnic and egg hunt! I was really wanting to try to get some pictures of Libby out there still in her Easter dress and I was MORE than pleased and excited with what I was able to get. Enjoy our pics from Easter 🙂

Family photo at church!


At the kids table eating lunch-they all did so great!


Hunting eggs for the first time…

The girls loved playing with the baskets most of all 🙂


Jonah helping Libby find some more eggs


Jonah was having the time of his life cracking confetti eggs on everyones head, so they saved one for Libby to do on Papa’s head…you’ll see below her thoughts on that…

I’m not sure why she’s crying…either is scared her, she thought she hurt Papa or it hurt her hand…either way WE were ALL laughing hysterically. Poor Libby!


Taking a trip to the Oak Tree that “Five Oaks Ranch” was named after for some family photos that my SIL Jordan took for us (for some reason I couldn’t upload them on here but you can take a trip to www.lonestarlagniappe.blogspot.com to see them!




Everyone else loaded up and headed home, but I really want to take Libby over to where there might be a few bluebonnets left for some pics…which  may be some of my favorite pics of all time that I have taken of this sweet girl. Good luck with not getting your heart melted after looking! (of course, I MAY be a bit biased 🙂 )

Then we decided to jump in even though we are NOT in our Easter outfits anymore…I still liked how they turned out 🙂 IMG_8473 IMG_8465

After we left the ranch we went home to let her look at her own Easter basket! I had to be at church before she even woke up (Didn’t Justin do a good job getting her ready for church? Easter Sunday none the less!) so we had to wait until that night to do it…but it was just as much fun! AND helped me to remember that Easter is most definitely not about Easter baskets, bunny’s and whatever else you may include but that it is ALL about celebrating the fact that Jesus is alive! That we serve a risen savior…Hallelujah!
