Easter 2015

I love Easter. What a wonderful day! He is risen!

Our church had 2 services on Friday night, 3 on Saturday afternoon/night, and 2 on Sunday morning. I served in the nursery both services Friday night and one on Saturday. Christopher served and led the group of Roadies (parking lot directors) for all 3 services on Saturday. What an amazing opportunity to be a part of this special weekend. There were so many new families walking in those doors and hearing about our Savior for the first time. Simple things, like helping them get in and out of the parking lot and finding a spot quickly or caring for their child, impact their church experience, and hopefully made them feel comfortable enough to worship with us again and learn more about Jesus. I just feel so humbled to be a part of my God's army and a part of someone else's journey to Christ. Amen? Amen!

Saturday, the boys and I baked some Easter cookies and dyed eggs. And you can't do that without bunny ears.

The kids worshiped on Saturday night and were looking SO ADORABLE.

The boys woke Sunday morning to a trail of Easter eggs that went from their room, down the stairs, and into the living room where they found their baskets filled with goodies (t-shirt, movie, candy, Lego set). Miss Wrenn had a basket too with an outfit, a book, body wash and lotion and a teething toy. AND? And! The coolest retro Tupperware Noah's Ark toy! ::swoon:: (So...we kind of forgot to show Wrenn her basket until we returned from VA that night around 7. Oops!)

Then we headed to my parent's farm in VA where we had a wonderful lunch and the grandkids played and played and played. We have an annual egg hunt for the grandkids, then a hunt for the kids (me, my brother, sister, spouses, and 2 older nieces). The big kids have money inside their eggs, which leads to some interesting on-the-ground fights over eggs (Ahem, Chris Jones! You shouldn't push your little sister down like that!). I am proud to say that I did not get the least amount this year per usual - that honor goes to Angela, who got 25 cents and a Rolo!  LOLOLOLOLOL
