Easter 2012

Our little family had a wonderful Easter weekend. On Saturday, we all met up with Shane's grandparents for their annual Easter lunch with his entire extended family. It was very fun and yummy, with tons of delicious casseroles and desserts. Afterwards, I volunteered in the nursery for our church's Saturday night service. We had about 11 babies in the nursery who were pretty much all unusually grumpy, so it was a tough night! However, it is always a pleasure to serve the Lord wherever I can, and I did get to play with my friend's sweet one year old.

This morning, we were up early, checking out Easter baskets and getting ready for church. Both the kids received new giant coloring books, and Parker got a new tee and bat and ball, and Lily was overjoyed to get the Muppet movie, which we are currently watching right now. Then, we headed to an amazing service at our church.

"So I'll stand, with arms high and heart abandoned, in awe of the one who gave it all."

"There is no one higher, no one greater, no one like our God. There is none more able, Christ, our Savior, great and glorious."

I LOOOOVE our church! Have I mentioned how awesome our church is? It was a truly moving and beautiful service this morning.

After church, we hung around with Shane's family and went and ate La Bamba for lunch. We spent the rest of the day at Shane's parents house, and the kids received another Easter basket from Shane's mom. They are stocked up now. I just finished hiding the candy! Then all of the kids had a little Easter egg hunt.

We are now all exhausted at home. Shane threw some turkey burgers on the grill, and Parker was asleep before 730. Tomorrow, Lily goes back to school after a fun but seemingly short spring break.
