I love Easter! I love the fresh swelling feeling of excitement as we celebrate the resurrection of our Savior as a church family. It's so easy to lose that in the every day. It's nice to have an opportunity to join together in special focus and celebration of our resurrected Lord!
So after a FANTASTIC church service, we rushed home to put the finishing touches on the house and food before all the family came! We got to host Easter dinner! I feel so grown up.
Wait... I'm not sure I like feeling grown up.
Marie loves having people over. First stop was her room, of course.
Then we had an Easter egg hunt. First Marie sprinted over to the neighbor's house to see if Lucas could join us...
But poor Lucas had the stomach bug. So off hunting we went without him.
|Like the bow?? I made it at MOPS! I love MOPS.|
I love watching the kids run everywhere and find nothing. It's hilariously cute!
I don't have any good pics of the whole clan (we had 4 hunters) because our yard is so big, everyone was all spread out!
I love having a big yard.
All Marie wanted to do after finding her very first egg was sit down and eat what she knew was inside it. It took some effort to keep her hunting. Finally, she had her 12 eggs (well 13, but who's counting?) and as soon as I wasn't watching, she plopped down right in the grass and started chowing down.
Needless to say, she didn't eat a whole lot of the delicious dinner the rest of us enjoyed after the hunt!
It was like, the ideal day.
Church (Thank You, Father, for bringing us to FBC!)
Family (May nothing ever come between us!)
Fun (Thank You, Father, for blessing us with the gift of enjoyment!)
Food (What family gathering is complete without it??)
Celebration (Thank You, Father, that Sunday came!)
I've never really listened to the lyrics of this song until a couple nights ago. Powerful.
