ginny’s first easter

Ginny’s first Easter.  It was pretty calm as major family holidays go.

She is too young to understand any of it.  But the grown ups in her life had fun pretending it was special to her.  Really it was just special to us that she is in our lives now.

Thank you Mel & Steve and thank you Lord Jesus for this incredible gift. And for the even more awe inspiring gift of your Son’s sacrifice.  As this tiny girl becomes more precious to me every day I grow in awe of the pain of that sacrifice even more.

Here are some photos of Ginny and us from Easter.

you see Grammy gave Ginny a new item for Easter.  A sippy cup.  This is something that Ginny had never played with before.  So naturally she instantly upended it all over herself.  Off came the dress. Toss it in the dryer. While mommy and baby sit down for a quick breakfast.  then back into the dress and off to church.

one of the iconic photographs from our wedding was taken at this same spot, so we wanted a shot of us with Ginny.  But she just would NOT look at the camera.  oh well.  maybe next week.

After church we drove an hour south of town to a friends house for a tea party.  She had an egg hunt, a gorgeous English tea and an on-the-spot-Easter-Bonnet-making contest.  She supplied hats, glue gun and all the trimmings.  Some very…interesting hats ensued.  Here are a few.
