Easter Catch-Up

What a weekend! I'm a little behind in blogging, but our weekend was a special one that I didn't want to forget.

Easter is a celebration of the life that was raised from the dead. It's remembering that God gives and takes away for our good although we don't see the good at the time. That truth was revealed to us this weekend.

Todd's uncle Tyler (who I should really describe as his best friend rather than uncle) and his wife Kari suffered an incredible loss last year. Last May Kari lost her baby boy when she was just 5 months into her pregnancy. It was one of the most difficult things our family has faced. We mourned the loss of his short life and the joy he would have brought to our lives. This weekend we celebrated new life. Tyler and Kari are pregnant again and last Saturday we found out she is having a baby girl! Praise God!

We had a blast at the "reveal party!"

How cute is their house?

The big reveal! Pink it's a girl, blue it's a boy!

It's a girl!! Sorry it's a little blurry. I got excited. :)

There you go, our Easter in a nutshell. We're so happy for Tyler and Kari and thankful we could celebrate the baby news with them and the risen life of our Savior with those we love the most.
