HAPPY EASTER, people! I hope you had a FANTASTIC Easter and are filled with a joy and hope that can only come from the One who died and rose again! 🙂
We had a great weekend overall, complete with a couple of egg hunts, some pretty weather, good family time, and a beautiful Easter service at our church. Man, the sacrifice Jesus made for us is straight up humbling. Goodness. It moves me to tears!!
Although I should be thankful every day for my blessings, Easter has made me extra thankful for my kids. Being a parent makes the sacrifice God made with Jesus SO real. And Easter has hit me harder with each passing year of being a mommy. That sacrifice is HUGE!! That is what Easter is all about!
Easter is also, as a Southerner, about new clothes 🙂 I know, I know. Nothing in comparison to all the above. But I LOVE getting our babes dressed up in new clothes! (Doesn’t every mom?!)
I copied an idea that I got from a couple of friends on Facebook and dressed them up in their Easter outfits for 10 minutes on Friday so I could snap a bunch of photos without having to be scrambling to get out the door for church on Sunday morning. I thought that was so smart! That was one less thing we had to do Sunday morning! 😉 And I loved the pictures- good mix of goofy, cute, and sweet. And the little people in them, of course!
I saved my three faves for last… 🙂
My heart is full!! Things got a tad chaotic because Wilson wasn’t a major fan of his jacket and Lily Ryan wasn’t a major fan of her shoes (as you might have noticed by the fact that one is missing in several pictures) but it’s all good. Everyone is happy today!
Thank y’all for indulging me for a minute! (I guess I’m “that” mother now… ha!) Be sure to come back tomorrow because a new giveaway starts!!!! EEEE!!! (It’s a really good one, too!) 😉
