Our Easter weekend celebration started on Friday night with a neighborhood Easter egg hunt. All of the local Mom's pitched in and filled a mess of eggs then Sara and I got to hiding them while enjoying a nice glass of wine in some semi quiet;)
It was such a blast for the kids. We had a pizza party afterwards then all the families joined us inside to hang out for several hours. It was so nice to be able to be a part of this. The kids got to run wild and the adults got to relax and enjoy some adult conversation. We are truly blessed at every turn. We know the most wonderful people.
Saturday was a blur of 'stuff' to do, baby showers to attend and 'Easter' stuff to get done. Before we knew it....it was Sunday morning. Weekends do that around here. They simply slip away.
The Easter Bunny had arrived. He left a clever trail of goody filled eggs all the way from the top of the stairs by the bedrooms, to the baskets hiding in the dining room. He must have done this post eating the carrots we left for him and making a mess out of it ;) Silly Rabbit.
|Addy and I jumped out of bed, saw the eggs outside our door and decided to gently wake up the boys. This was her posing. All pictures require posing these days with her. Not sure what she is going for with it, but a kids got to do weird things...that's just how they roll.|
|The boys were already awake to our surprise and were cheery balls of joy.|
|Drew with his new cool Thomas glasses. He had no real intention of wearing these...he was just in on the photo op. What a little ham he is already.|
|Chowing down on some goodies while waiting to get loaded in the van and on our way. He is such a handsome little fella.|
Like most days around here, the business of it all made it fly by all too fast. The service was joyous and beautiful. We travelled to Massachusetts after to enjoy dinner with my fathers side of the family. The kids had a blast but before we knew it, we were back home and in pjs ( must say VERY ready for bed myself).
Thank you Jesus for giving me what feels like all the world. I have Your love, Your forgiveness, Your word and this family. You have shown me such favor. What on earth could I have done to be worthy of it all?
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
