Hoppy Easter!

Hoppy Easter to everyone from the Bell family! Although it was quite a yucky day outside, we had a great Easter Sunday. We got up three hours before church started and made it just in time! Things sure do change when you have a baby. He was such a good baby during church, too. We made a quick exit toward the end of the service.....one whole hour is a lot to expect out of a 3 month old. I must say, he looked Aaaaaa-dorable in his Easter outfit. Check him out!

I'm sure he'll hate these pictures when he's older, but I couldn't resist....



We had our annual Easter egg hunt, but due to rain, it took place inside KayeKaye's house. There were nine of us kids (yes, Matt and I are still kids) that participated in the hunt. Here we are (minus me because I was taking the picture) waiting on the 'adults' to hide the eggs.


I had a poor performance. There were 161 eggs hidden. Guess how many I found?
Yes, FIVE! I must be getting too old for egg hunts...

Zane got a few goodies from multiple Easter bunnies. See for yourself....spoiled?

Can you believe his DeeDee found him an Easter Mr. Potato Head and cousin Kara found him an Easter monkey...or monkey bunny, as we've been calling it! Two must-haves for this little guy!

His Papa Skeet has a very calming effect on Zane-O. He got him to sleep after all of the excitement. I'd just bet he was singing to him....


We had a great time visiting with family and enjoyed some great food, but I do want to mention that Easter had a more powerful meaning to me this year as I thought about the true meaning, about how my God allowed his only son to die on the cross for me and three days later he arose from the dead! I can't begin to fathom God's love for us, but having a son of my own....and knowing how much I love him.....well, that's one great God we serve!
