Easter 2011!

Easter was wonderful this year. It's so fun when children get big enough to be able to appreciate holidays.

Of course we taught Caleb about the meaning of Easter; how Christ suffered for our sins and pains in Gethsemane and on the cross, and how he rose again to give us the gift of Eternal Life. How God loves us enough to let His beloved son suffer in anguish for us. How Christ loves us enough to suffer that much and how we never have to feel alone in our trials because he has felt every pain that every person who has ever lived or who will ever live has felt, and he's there for us if we seek him.

I think it'll take a while for Caleb to fully understand that one...

But he sure caught on quick when it came to the egg hunt!

Yes, this was his Easter basket, and no, it was nowhere close to full. We decided to be cheap and practical this year. It now holds toys.

Ah, the lovely Easter outfit.
Ah, the lovely face smash.

We get this look a lot these days. I think it's his thinking face. He happens to think a lot. I guess that's a good thing...?

Ah, the angelic eyes.
