Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday! Will loved everything about Easter this year and it was definitely fun for all of us. We read about the resurrection story in his Bible all week and talked a lot about the meaning of Easter...which meant a lot of talking about Jesus! Yesterday, my good friend Meredith came over and Will read the resurrection story to her. She asked him where Jesus was carrying the cross, which I believe was a new question for him, and he quickly responded, "To the post office!" So we probably need to brush up on the story a little bit.

The three of us had fun dying Easter eggs last night and talking some more about Easter. Then this morning before church, Will told us, "Happy Easter Bunny!" After church today, our families came over to our house for lunch and Easter egg hunting. Will kept asking when the Easter Bunny was coming and when it was finally time to hunt the eggs, he excitedly told everyone that the Easter Bunny came. I'm not really sure where he came to this conclusion because I never told him the Easter Bunny was coming to our house...I'm sure someone did though. Will and Brayden were the only kids old enough to hunt Easter eggs this year, but they made the most of it. Will got his share of eggs and helped Brayden put some in his basket too.

We did manage to take a few pictures after church. I was NOT up to it since I've been having some pretty serious contractions since yesterday afternoon...but I'm so glad we did. I think this could be the last family picture of just the three of us before Reed gets here. The contractions haven't gotten close enough together to go to the hospital, but we must be getting closer. They have been about 5-20 minutes apart and they sometimes they go away for a couple of hours at a time. I am still hoping to make it about another week since I am only 36.5 weeks, but God knows the right time!

first of all i am so obsessed with these stories about will. he is just the cutest thing ever!! and secondly, i am feeling the EXACT same way these last few days! I have been having some big contractions- sometimes really close together - but then they go away. Did you do that with Will?? These little babies really could have the same birthday!! I cannot wait to find out :)
