We had a fun, low-key Easter with church and dinner with some dear friends, but it sure makes us miss our families on holidays:) Here are few pics from the last couple weeks...

These two adore each other....at least when Cooper is not pestering him:)

Cooper's preschool has the tradition of decorating Easter bonnets with each child and his parent. The kids can pick out whatever they want to put on top. Of course, as usual, Coop went with a sports theme:) We had fun hot glueing all the items on together.

Then they all parade around the courtyard to show off their masterpieces:)

On Easter morning, Coop and I made tomb rolls to symbolize Jesus being buried in the tomb after His death on the cross and then raising from the grave.
Here are the ingredients:)

You take a big marshmallow (Jesus), dip the marshmallow in butter, then roll it in cinnamon and sugar (I like to think we anointed Him:)
We then rolled up the marshmallow in a crescent roll,
tucked in and pinched the sides,
and put them all on a cookie sheet.
Put them in the oven....
And, Voila! Where'd the marshmallow go??
(Yes, "Jesus" might have oozed out the sides of the rolls, but you get the point:)
They were really yummy!

We had a little egg hunt in our front yard with just Coop.

Sweet Sawyer's new wrinkle nose face.
Showing off the loot!
How hilarious is this? Is he not too cute??
My sweet boys, minus one;)

And finally, this little cutie turned 9 months this week! Where has the time gone?
We are looking forward to a very special day on Sunday, as we dedicate Sawyer Jace Rumley to the Lord. On Mother's Day. Our third baby boy to be dedicated on Mother's Day. What a sweet tradition;)
