Easter weekend

April 15, 2009 at 10:35 pm (Easter, Easter Sunday, Egg Hunt, Evan, Megan, rodeo)

I love Easter weekend!   I love everything it’s about … Jesus on the cross – For. Me.  Then rising from the dead … again – For. Me.  So that he can be present & alive in my life today!  But to be completely honest, I also love all the fun stuff that goes along with the weekend – the egg hunts, the Spring-y clothes, and the Honey Baked Hams (at least that’s part of our tradition!). 

After an awesome church service, we headed to my parents house (with Potato Salad in tow) for a yummy lunch & a fun day!  Aunt Staci once again pulled off a really fun Egg Hunt – not the typical old egg hunt, but one with creativity!   I hope all little kids have an “Aunt Staci” in their life … she’s the best!!

Afterwards, Evan & Pep went straight to a Rodeo (he’s at that stage, what can I say)!   Secretly, I think Aunt Staci wanted to go with him!

The rest of us stayed watching Megan try to crawl … she’s currently at the scoot with my head stage – not sure if that’s really a stage, but no one’s told her that yet! And might I add the little girl racked up pretty good with FOUR super adorable Spring Dresses in Easter Baskets from her families!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend … with the important stuff & the fun stuff!

Weekend Wrap Up

March 23, 2008 at 4:00 pm (Easter, Easter Sunday, Egg Hunt, family, weekend)

This has been such a nice weekend – the weather has been absolutely beautiful & we had a lot of good family & friend time … the perfect weekend to celebrate the ultimate gift that we’ve ever been given.   Church was incredibly, incredibly croweded this morning, but I like it that way because it usually brings a sense of good excitement (and alot more crying babies and talking toddlers in the sanctuary – I definitely don’t like that part).  I’m always pulling for Pastors to knock one out of the park on a day like Easter Sunday.  For some it’s the one opportunity out of the entire year that they’ll hear the love of Jesus & what he did for us … as long as they hit those points then I’m pretty happy.  I remember sitting at one service one year, just hoping that he was going to come around to that point … I was beginning to doubt it but he finally got there!  This was our first Easter at our new church & I really enjoyed it!

 Yesterday we had a yummy lunch & fun at my parents house (I’ll have to post later with pictures).  Of course, Aunt Staci came through again with a fun egg hunt for the kids.  She’s such a teacher because she always has instructions for her egg hunts!!!  Today we had lunch with some out of town friends after church (Mexican – you know the standard Easter dinner).  After lunch we planted two new trees in the yard (Pep said they were a deal of a lifetime – they looked dead to me) and now we’re getting ready to head over to his parents for some Seafood Jumbo (the other standard Easter dinner).

 All good things must come to end though soon … it will be Monday AM in less than 12 hours:(.

What did I accomplish?

March 16, 2008 at 8:49 am (cleaning, Easter, sisterchicks, tornado, weekend)

Yesterday was supposed to be a day full of accomplishment –

1.  clean the house (the little guy was spending the night with my parents which means I could actually clean without it getting torn up 2 seconds later).

2.  go grocery shopping (with peace & quiet b/c the little guy was still out with his grandparents)

3.  go fun shopping (Easter baskets, spring clothes, fun, fun)

4.  get my nails done (because I had a gift certificate)

5.  have dinner with the Sisterchicks

But instead, some tornado warnings kept deciding to go off, hail swept through the area and it was not a good day to get outside and do any of that!!

But I did get to:

1.  clean the house

2.  file everything that I’ve been throwing into my ‘I’ll file later b/c I certainly don’t want to do that now bin” – it felt like it was everything since 2007!!!

3.  have dinner with the Sisterchicks:)

 What did you (or did you not) accomplish this weekend?
