I really enjoy Easter. I attempt to make my life a celebration of God and His goodness, but I fail daily. Easter is a great time to really think about what Christ did for us. It's fun to eat candy, hunt eggs, and get together with friends and family. But it's really about Jesus dying for us so that we would be forgiven. Amazing. Now that I have a son, I can't even fathom it. What an awesome God.

This year, Parker was really interested in hunting eggs. He was more interested in eating what was inside of the eggs. He had so much fun! It took him a while to learn the word egg (he kept calling them balls), but he finally got it. We had a great time celebrating with our family and friends. Parker woke up to an Easter basket, which he really enjoyed. We then went to Uncle Gaylord's with my parents and Jason & Cindy to eat blueberry pancakes. Jason & Cindy had a little surprise of their own.....They're pregnant!!!! We are soooo excited. Parker has always wanted a cousin! After breakfast, we went to church (kids were in the service). I had spent an hour preparing exciting activities to keep Parker quiet, and I only had to break out the Diego fruit snacks and a book. He said Jaime's name about 10 times (she sat in front of us), but other than that, he did awesome!! He actually fell asleep during worship. I had two different people ask me if I had given him Bennadryl. I have to give credit to God, because it was a miracle! After a very short nap, Parker hunted eggs at our house. We went to the Davis's for dinner and more egg hunting. I'm still full from all the food that was consumed!

HI! Lindsey, Parker is BEAUTIFUL! You and Patrick must be SO proud! I kept asking your mom to e-mail some pictures of Parker to me and she sent me here, I am SO thankful she did. What a beautiful little family you have! I think Parker and his "Easter Balls" are just too cute. I am so glad that you guys are so happy and well. I wish we could all get together more, but LIFE . . .
Anyway, congratulations on your new little neice/nephew that is on the way! Take care and have a blessed day!
Love to your family,
Ed & Terra Johnson
