Easter Sunday - new beginnings

Today was a wonderful day.  Our temperature made it up to 40 degrees, which is great for this time of year here in Alaska.

Little man will be 5 on Saturday!!

I bought some tulips for my only Easter themed decoration.  They make me happy and the kids have been so excited to watch them bloom that I think I need to do this more often.  There is nothing prettier than fresh flowers.
  

Lydia is getting so big.  She'll be two in May.  I was really happy to get a sweet photo of her this morning.

She rarely stands still so this is what I usually get
 

 After our Resurrection Sunday service, we attended the baptismal service for Elsa and Isaac and a few other believers.  


Dave and I felt blessed to watch these beautiful children make a public declaration of their faith in Jesus Christ.



They are so happy to have done it. Best quote of the day was from Isaac "I've been praying a lot and it's kinda like it changed my life"  Sweet words from a precious 7 year old.

 After watching his little sister and brother be baptized, Adin decided being publicly baptized wasn't as scary as he thought it might be and he wants to take this step himself the next available opportunity.  I love how he never feels a need to conform to others' expectations.

I hope you all had a blessed Easter celebrating our Lord's Resurrection.
