When you are in the Fire Family, every holiday involves the Fire Truck/Engine and some sort of photo with it! So, Easter 2011 with my boys (Noah 2yrs 7Months & Dean 7Months) and their cuz Hunter Rose (12 Months).
We started the morning with an Easter CANDY Hunt.
The 5 minute wait was almost unbearable for a 2.5 year old!
Noah found candy!
Nana and our sweet Hunter Rose
Pop-pop and Dean
The always silly and always fun Jared Marchbank. Noah loves his big buddy and let me tell you...he is quite a character. Can't you tell?
Noah and Jared both played for a long time inside the Fire Engine.
They found gloves and decided it would be a good idea to wear them.
Good Friday must be the most solemn day in the Christian calendar. A day full of suffering, torture and pain also was the day of my freedom, the day that my sins were forever forgiven and a day of HOPE.
"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace" Eph. 1:7
This week Noah began saying his own prayers. Friday we took some time to talk about Good Friday and Easter. Noah doesn't understand much about it at his age, but he does soak a little in. Friday night his prayer went as follows:
"God thank you for Daddy, Mommy, Buddy Buddy, Nana, Pop-pop, De De, A B, Jared, Isaac, Porter, Niiiiiiiiiic, Movie Blue Bird Jewel, safe me, I happy, Buddy Dean Happy, no more sins me, I Yuv You AMEN, and sad cross you dead on, thank you, I Yuv You, AMEN!"
