Here are a few videos of Micah opening an Easter gift box from Grammy and Papa in Wisconsin! You can hear him saying "I like that" and "very cool" :-)

I hope everyone had a blessed Easter! We went to church in the morning where Micah made a Hosannah "palm frond" in Sunday School. It was a packed house and a great service. After naptime, Micah got to open his Easter basket and go on an egg hunt around the living room. It was a hot day so I hid them in the house. He then ate way too much candy :-) We also got to talk to both Grammys and Pop Pops on the phone, plus other family members which was a treat for us.
We spent the weekend working on project around the house, trying to get this place ready to be home for another person! The "nesting" is kicking into high gear. I enjoyed a wonderful pregnancy massage on Saturday that Dan got me for my birthday. I had been saving it for the last trimester and it was worth it!
We didn't eat any fancy meals today, but we had a good weekend enjoying some family time and remembering the sacrifice that Christ made on our behalf.

Now that Micah's a year older, he seems to be enjoying the Easter celebration a lot more. We decided to dye a few eggs with him this weekend which he loved (see video) and then at church we had a family Easter dinner and egg hunt on Sunday after church (see pics). Micah got make an Easter cross project there and collected 10 eggs with candy, including a special one which he redeemed for a new Veggies Tales video! Sunday after his nap we took him to see part of the musical Dan has been working on, Bye, Bye, Birdie. He loved the "concert" and wanted to see another one right after it was over. Apparently, he characterizes performances by the color of the lights used on the stage. The last one we took him to, he has dubbed "the purple concert" and this one was "the orange concert." There is a special orchestral concert for children this Wednesday at Henderson and we plan to take him to that. Hope everyone has a blessed Holy Week!

We busted out the finger paints on Sunday afternoon and Micah had a great time making handprints and finding his inner Van Gogh. He then decided to move on to markers, which would have been ok, if he hadn't used his body as a canvas :-) Oh, well. It's nothing a little soak in the tub couldn't cure!
