This was Hudson's first Easter and he was as cute as can be.  The day was filled with church, family and egg hunts.  It was a very busy weekend for Travis as he lead worship for a few different events and services.  He started at 3:45am on Saturday and 3:00am on Sunday, so today has been a day of rest for our family.

The whole weekend my thoughts were focused on the sacrifice our Savior made and the victory He won.  I couldn't help but to feel so humbled and grateful to receive the gift of forgiveness.  It just makes me look to the cross and to our Lord and be amazed.  Amazed that The Creator sent his Son to pay the penalty of death which we alone deserve in order that His creation might have relationship with Him.  Glory to God.  It just leaves me speechless.

We hope one day Hudson will choose to put his trust and hope in the Lord.  We often pray for his salvation and hope that Hudson will be able to celebrate with us on Easter for the victory God has won in his life as well.

In light of our Easter celebrations, I leave you with this verse:

I Corinthians 15:55
"'Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?'
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God!  He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

Our church met this year at the Angel's stadium on both Saturday night and Sunday morning.  This is a picture of Pastor Rick Warren during the service on Saturday night.

We kept Hudson entertained and quiet thanks to Yogurt melts :)

One of my favorite parts of the service on Saturday night was when some pastors from other churches went down on the field and we prayed for them and their churches for the following day's services.  

Get ready... I posted way too many pictures from Easter Sunday:

Oh my... I just loved dressing our little boy.  Who ever said boys aren't fun to dress?

I ordered this adorable yellow gingham bow tie off of Etsy to go with his seersucker suit:

And of course, these navy blue boat shoes were just perfect with his ensemble:

On an egg hunt:

I left his egg bucket at home so we improvised and found this cute wooden basket in Brooke's garage.  Hudson loved it because he could hit the eggs on it and make a noise.
Hudson loves our golden retriever, Gunner and now he loves all dogs.  He was totally laughing at our friend's dog, Augie.  It was so cute watching him just giggle and try to hug Augie.
