“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”
Worth celebrating: An empty tomb.
We’ve done just that, starting with Raynes’ first Easter egg hunt.
Like his father, he seems to enjoy anything hunting related.
It was obviously so worth the $10 I spent to have his white polo shirt monogrammed with his stacked initials so he could wear it in these Easter photos. Nothing says Easter like red flannel pajamas, rain boots, a Walmart puffer vest and a ski hat.
We attended a beautiful (packed!) Sunday morning service at our church followed by last-ditch effort for Easter photos back at the house. Our reality looks something like this:
After 15 shots and threatening the kids with no Easter candy until I got one shot where we all looked in the same direction without crying, we were able to capture our almost-family photo that I wanted.
Because we all know, beggars can’t be choosers.
As if we don’t have enough of a reason to celebrate this Sunday, my Mom’s birthday also fell on Easter this year. And…. Mike and I will be celebrating our 13 year wedding anniversary tomorrow. Bang, bang, bang. (onomatopoeia’s are my favorite).
My cup runneth over. Yes it does.
(Listen to the end of our church service singing hallelujah yesterday- always a favorite)
