I think we started a tradition

First Easter Egg Hunt for Oceana.
Impromptu basket (discovered in the pantry...)

Would you believe she didn't see this one???

But with some encouragement...

Well, she doesn't need any encouragement the remove the foil! She ate all five. And then stayed up till 10pm. Is it any wonder?

  1. LOOK at her eyes!
    How gorgeous!
    She's so cute :)

  2. I just love her wispy blonde hair. So beautiful! I hope you all had a lovely Easter!

  3. your strength through all this is amazing. You encourage me to have faith in areas of my life that are definitely not as hard as this. I will be praying for your family as you are missing your little boy....a gift from heaven. keep trusting Him.

  4. she is beautiful! Oh and my 20 month old disovered chocolate eggs for the first time this year.....LOVES them to say the least.....LOL. She is so precious.

    The sunrise in the photo below is beautiful and on eternal life. I so agree. It there were nothing after this life......the effort would not be worth it....the pain of losing someone one....would never be comforted but because we do have that blessed hope of eternal life.........ahhhhhh the beauty of the sacrifical lamb so we might live forever.....God bless you.

  5. Very gorgeous pictures!! Never too soon to start traditions :) Glad to see you're having good times, mixed in with the grief. Well done you...

  6. Susie & Matt,
    I just wanted to tell you that I think Oceana is absolutely gorgious! Those eyes are unbelievable.
    I am still praying for your precious family...

  7. Just wanted to check in and let you know that I continue to pray for you and your family. Looks like Oceana had a fun time hunting eggs (eating them too!)

    I know the Lord already has the perfect house in mind for you and your family, just praying he reveals it to you!

  8. LOL! How on earth did she miss that egg? I should say what was she after if not the egg?!?

    I will keep praying that you get a place to stay soon. It can be tiresome to live by faith.

    Lots of love,


  9. She is a cutie!!
    Just wanted you to know that you are in my prayers. Hope the house you all were looking at worked out.
    God Bless.

  10. She's just stunning Susie. I pray you are experiencing the love and comfort of the Lord today and always.


  11. Awww, too cute!

    What a beautiful child, and what beautiful eyes!!

  12. Oceana is adorable. It's so lovely to see her enjoying her Easter eggs and having fun when it must be so hard for her Mummy and Daddy at the moment.

    You truly are amazing parents.

  13. I love these pictures Susie, and it looks like the weather was great. I want you to know I am praying for you daily and for the house you need to move into soon. God has brought you this far and I know He will bless you with the needs you have and the desires of your heart. I sure do miss Joshua updates. I wish we could get them from heaven:) Now that would be an UPDATE!!! Praying you through this time sweetie. You are loved.

  14. Lol, I turned my back on my 3 year old Sunday morning for about five minutes. When I returned, he was sitting in the middle of a bunch of empty wrappers. Oops. Total meltdown later that day, but we've recovered by now. Easter egg hunts with your little kids are so much fun!

  15. Oceana is SO gorgeous. I'm sure you hear that all the time! She is such a perfect blend of you and Matt.
