Our Easter Day
What a fun Easter Day. It started out at 7:30 this morning when I got up to start lunch. We were going to eat out Lunch, but then last night as I lay in bed, I started thinking about the crowds of people and waiting to be seated and decided to get up at 1:00 in the morning and put on a crock pot of beans and defrost some chicken. This morning I got up and put the chicken on to cook. The house was filled with the smell of beans cooking. What a great smell to wake up too. After getting all the lunch started, I got the rest of the family up to dress for church. We ALL, even my son Kody, loaded up the car and headed to church. It was a wonderful service as expected. They had this huge wooden cross outside and on the cross people brought flowers and nailed them to the cross. I wish I had brought my camera. It was a gorgeous site. Flowers from the top all the way to the bottom. All kinds of flowers. Roses, violets, Easter Lilly's. Just beautiful. The music was breathtaking and the preaching was outstanding. Love this church!!! It was wonderful to have both my children there with me. I was a proud Momma. After church we stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few additions to lunch. I decided on adding homemade macaroni and cheese, broccoli and cauliflower, and cornbread. Of course while I was there, I had to get me a Carmel Frap. YUM!!!! So then we were home to take the family photos and finish cooking lunch. Kody's best friend Travis joined us for lunch. It was a great lunch. Then Kadies little friend Melody from down the street, joined us for a Easter egg hunt. My mother-n-law filled eggs full of change and dollars and Kelvin hid the eggs all around the front yard. It was pretty chilly outside so the egg hunt went fast. The girls had a great time hunting for money though and a little cold did not stop them from running all around the yard in search of the eggs. They both got about $5.00 each and a load of candy. The most fun they had was sitting and opening the eggs and counting the loot. Kadie also got a Easter basket full of candy, a bunny and of course her chocolate Easter bunny. Kody loved his Cadbury eggs and white chocolate bunny. It was a great day. Now I am sitting on the couch in my usual comfortable place, uploading pictures and typing about this day and thinking about how awesome God is to give me such a great family. Without him, there would not be days like this. Thank you Jesus, for all that you have done and still do for us, so that we can have days like this. Thank you for my family. Now on the other side of my brain, I am thinking a good nap right now would be the icing on the cake. I hope everyone had a great day as we did. Happy Easter to all who read this!!!
