Easter 2015

Easter weekend didn't turn out exactly as planned.....but then again, how much of life actually does?! 
We made several preparations for Easter dinner, including a Bunny Cake. When I went to the next room to get Kylie, the boys literally started to devour the cake, sans utensils and plates. Seriously. Where did they learn this from?!
Grandma Linda, Grandma Pam and Aunt Laurie started out traveling from South Dakota to Illinois, but had to turn around due to sickness:( After telling Evan and Jaden all week about who was coming Friday, it was kind of a shock for them when I told them they were not coming. So, what else to do, but drown our sorrows in cake! At that point, I just grabbed the forks. 
Saturday we had an Easter Egg Hunt with Tucker. The boys had so much fun running around picking up eggs, but I think they had more fun walking in the house, dumping their baskets, and opening up every egg. 

We had a fun weekend keeping the boys busy and making memories. 

Keeping the weekend low-key allowed us to not stress about the details, but focus on the real reason for Easter. He is risen. He is risen indeed. As we heard in church today, the stone was rolled away not for Jesus to get out, but for us to get in and believe. 

 Happy Easter from The Schumacher's!!
