photo shoot at church

Everyone arrived at the church early enough to get some family photos before the service. We took some after church too...cause you always need more photos...right?? ;)

The Ruddick boys in their ties. Tate's is part of his onesie. :)
Griffin, Tate & Ronan

Our family

Dan, Kara, Summer & Brooke Murphy-Hecht

The Ruddick family

The Chase family

Another family shot...cause the first one didn't show our (my) Easter clothes.
(I know I'm ridiculous. :P)

Sadie & Summer in matching dresses.

Kara matched too, but wasn't up for a group photo. :P

The Murphy-Hechts with Memaw & Papa

And one of the sisters...we missed you, Erik!

I really enjoyed our Pastor's sermon & was thoroughly impressed that he didn't use any notes! It was a beautiful message of how Jesus bridges the gap between us & God (using a beautiful wooden bridge made just for the sermon).

I am so thankful for the peace I have in knowing that Jesus died so that all may be forgiven. But the reason we celebrate is that He is bigger than death & he came back to life. His life served as an example of how we should live & his death & resurrection make up for the fact that we could never live up to his example...he paid the consequence for our sins & gives us forgiveness & hope! Happy Easter!
