Belton's First Easter

I know, I know, how could there be MORE to blog about for Easter, right? Well, this is the last Easter post, I promise!
When Matt went to wake Belton up on Easter morning, he was SOUND ASLEEP. Now, we have to wake him up at 7:30 for 8:30 church. For my baby that usually sleeps until 9 or 10, this is definitely an early wake up call. But he usually wakes up pretty easily. Matt changed his diaper, we took this picture, and THEN I picked him up and he finally started to wake up.

Once we got him all dressed up in his Easter outfit, I set him on the couch next to his Easter basket...check out this play by play!
 (You probably can't tell, but he actually got a hold of the bunny when he fell...success!!)

 Our sweet, happy baby on his first Easter.
After he knocked over his basket, he seemed pretty unenthused.

 "How long am I stuck with this crazy guy?!"

Belton is one special, blessed boy with many people who love him! Thank you to the grandparents and aunts and uncles gifted him most of these items! We are all grateful!

And MOST of all, we are grateful for our Savior, Jesus Christ whose resurrection we are celebrating on this blessed day. 

He is risen! He is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice.
He has burst his three days' prison;
Let the whole wide earth rejoice.
Death is conquered; man is free.
Christ has won the victory.

Come with high and holy hymning;
Chant our Lord's triumphant lay.
Not one darksome cloud is dimming
Yonder glorious morning ray,
Breaking o'er the purple east,
Symbol of our Easter feast.

He is risen! He is risen!
He hath opened heaven's gate.
We are free from sin's dark prison,
Risen to a holier state.
And a brighter Easter beam
On our longing eyes shall stream.
