Sunday was the day we celebrated that our Savior has risen. And celebrate we did! We started our morning by going to ChapelNext. We got there on time, but too late to get a seat! We had a record 345 people in attendance! We worked through some technical difficulties and were able to hear most of the praise and worship and all of the sermon downstairs (and in the nursery) in overflow.
After church I ran home and put the “deviled” in the eggs and let the Easter Bunny in. (Okay, the boys know I’m the Easter Bunny.) Matt got home about 30 minutes after I did and we let the boys open their baskets and eat some candy. Nana had sent each of them some goodies as well.
Then it was time to head to the Cooper’s house for FOOD! We are blessed to have an awesome set of friends to enjoy special events with and Easter was no exception. After the food (priorities, people) a group of bunny-wanna-be’s headed to the neighborhood park to hide eggs for the big kids. 20 minutes later a pack of kids followed the trail and the hunt was on. My only complaint was that the field of pollen, I mean, dandilions, was in direct light, harsh sunlight. I would have loved to have some shade for better picture opportunities. But I think I got some fun pictures in spite of all that. Hope your Easter was as beautiful as ours, even if you got snow (I know some of you did!). All the festivities are moot without the reason we were gathering. I am thankful He rose. I am thankful He’s alive.
