Anyway, remember when I anticipated Easter? I anticipated doing Julie's hair, seeing my kids dive into their baskets and spending time with family. Well, this Easter delivered all those things. It was truly a great Easter.
I think it started out well because I set my alarm for 30 minutes early. I wanted plenty of time to do Julie's hair and we wanted to get to church early and get a parking space. A few minutes before my alarm went off, I heard the little Munchkins getting into their baskets.
Highlights this year: Enchanted movie, playdoh, pencils, American Girl sleeping bag and PJ's for Julie;
How to Train your Dragon movie, silly putty and Ninjago Lego set for David.
Then it was time to get beautiful.
(Note: A 5-year old took this, hence the "looking up our noses" feel to the photo.)
David posed me here. Thought I'd include it too.
We had a wonderful church service with record attendance. A total of 1232 people attended in our 2 services. (Normally we have about 700 in attendance each week, so that was a HUGE Easter Sunday increase.)
After lunch at Grandma's, it was time for the egg hunt.
On your mark, get set...
Lots of goodies were found inside the eggs, including $3.23.
Unfortunately our batteries died on our camera so we didn't get pictures of the second egg hunt at Mamaw's house. Another $1 or $2 was found in those eggs. All in all, a pretty profitable days for the kids :).
I ate waaaay to much yummy food (although all the candy was chocolate, which I'm allergic to, so I didn't have any candy). But overall it was probably the best Easter that I remember.
