Easter Weekend...the BEST!!!

We left Thursday afternoon to go to my parent's house. My dad's little country church was doing a dramatic production of the "Living Lord's Supper," Thursday night. They did a FANTASTIC job. And NO, this is NOT a painting.











My nephews were there the whole time we were, so we had a lot of family fun. We decorated cookies, had a hunt or too, watched the latest Narnia movie, played cards and laughed A LOT. We stayed until Saturday, for we had to get back to our own church for Easter.






Kayla's masterpiece.

Keaton's chick, with "chicken pox"

Kev's chick that turned into what Keaton said looked like a "Christmas tree."




Sawyer then said, "there is no reason Easter and Christmas can't get along."

Some enjoyed eating more than decorating.




Got milk?!!!












Some boys are too "cool" to decorate a cookie for their mom.




(JORDAN!!!)









My parents. Aren't they cute?!
The Easter hunt...

They were out of plastic eggs at the Dollar Tree, and I WAS NOT in the mood to go to Walmart, so I found these. We ended up having an Easter ball hunt. The boys LOVED it!
Tate's favorite pose.




My redheaded cutie pie.












My nephew who thinks he CAN'T smile. I said, "yes you can, you have a beautiful smile, you just refuse to."












Crazy boys!!!
















Tatey. He still likes to snuggle and give hugs. I think I will cry when he stops.

















Easter morning before church, my two blessings. They grow up so fast. (I hate it that I ended up with a light circle on Jordan's face.)





Church, Easter morning was AWESOME!!!





We then went to my in-laws for burgers after church. A nice end to a GREAT weekend.





I am thankful. God has blessed me with so much; a beautiful family, a wonderful church family and His GRACE.





Thank you, Lord for saving me. Thank you for dying for me, even though I could never begin to deserve it. Thank you for showering my with blessings on a daily basis. And thank you for all the little reminders everyday, that YOU ARE THERE.





Hope everyone had a blessed Easter!

Glad to hear about your Easter and trip to see Beth Moore. Sounds like a near perfect week to me. We were nearly worn out with all the Easter week's activities. Kids are back at school today, and I finally am resting! Have a good week.
