Wonderful Easter

Ever have one of those days where you think of blog posts you want to write all day but don't have the time to write them?  Yeah, it's been one of those days.  But on the bright side, I got a LOT accomplished today.  A lot of things seemed to be hanging over my head and I worked on them and they are not hanging anymore. Yahoo!

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. 


  1. Your daughter's hair looks great! Thanks for sharing about your happy Easter! I hope you have a blessed week.

  2. Cathy her hair looks amazing! Wow I wish I could do that with Haley's hair! I am lucky to get it french braided from time to time! Your kids are adorable!
