Owen is getting so big so fast. Joel snapped this photo of him last week and as I just uploaded to the computer, I was amazed at how big he is getting. He's beginning to speak in sentences and is learning how to make faces that crack us up! If you ask him to make a cross face, he scrunches up his nose and furrows his brow into the most cross face you've ever seen! Where does the time go?

This was the first time we have done an egg hunt with Jack. After church, we had lunch with and spent the afternoon with
our surrogate family here in Michigan, Richard and Joyce Eide and Rebecca and Tom Bertram and Anna and Noah. It was a perfect day with a perfect meal and well, they're not perfect but they're wonderful friends :)! After lunch, we hid the eggs and Jack had a splendid time finding them hidden all over the Eide farm. I wish you could have been there to see his face as he found each one. It was so much fun! The candy has all been confiscated and will be doled out little by little, much to his dismay! We had a wonderful day! Oh, and Owen slept through it all -maybe next year!
It was a lovely spring day here in Michigan for Easter. We are so thankful to be here and for the
things God is doing in our lives and through our lives. It is all because of His resurrection that we have
any hope or power to live this life. It amazes us every day that God has given us His Son and that the
power that raised Christ from the dead is the same power we have to live in Him. That's some power!
We pray your Easter was as special as ours.
