He is Risen!

Since Sawyer missed sitting on Santa's lap at Christmas, I was jumping at the opportunity to take him to see the Easter Bunny.

Mimi and I decked him out in his bunny outfit, complete with bunny ears, and headed to Mall of Georgia.  We joined the million two other children in line and waited our turn.  Sawyer was not sure what to think of the Easter Bunny, but he snuggled right in this year.  I'm not sure we'll be so lucky next year.
On Saturday night, I dressed Sawyer in his super-cute Easter leggings, and we ventured to Mimi and P-Paw's house for Sawyer's first Easter basket.  Daddy is not very fond of his leggings, but I know that I can only get away with them for the next year or two, so I'm taking advantage of it.

Mimi and P-Paw spoiled our little man with a super-cute Easter bucket filled with goodies - a bathing suit, sunglasses, a hat, formula, gas drops, a book, and (much to my sadness) 8 - 10 oz bottles.  I'm still in disbelief that he's ready to give up his 4 oz bottles.

Since I have an addiction to Zulily right now, Sawyer had yet another outfit for Easter morning.  We headed to the annual Easter lunch at Gigi and PawPaw's.  This is an extra special lunch because it involves ALL the Clowers and Mimi and P-Paw are invited, too.

Sawyer was very overwhelmed by everyone who came to see him.  His sensitive little soul just couldn't handle all the attention, so he spent most of the day sleeping. However, he did wake up for some cousin time with Ladybug.  She loves him so much, and I love to see them together.

Then, Sawyer Daddy and I partcipated in the egg hunt.  Sawyer scored a few dollars and some yummy candy for me!

Before we left, Gigi and PawPaw gave Sawyer ANOTHER Easter basket full of goodies - bathing suits, bubbles, books, and a teething ring. 

Our little man was tuckered out by the end of the day, but he loved celebrating our Risen Savior!

John 11:25 - 26
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
