"Behold, This is our God; We have waited for Him, That He might save us…. Let us be glad and rejoice in His salvation." Isaiah 25
Easter Sunday isn't all about baskets, candy, pretty dresses and bonnets but that doesn't mean we can't have a little of that while we celebrate that Jesus rose from the grave for our sins.
So Easter baskets were dug into early this morning. All three were very happy with what the 'Easter Bunny' brought. I think the Peeps might have been the hit - all three were thrilled they got their own pack. Especially Lexie - I wish I had gotten a better picture of her excited face about her 'birdies.' She also loved her pink bunny (that she picked out at the store - ha! Last time I'll be able to get away with that!)
Breakfast and then off to Church. Last week we saw them getting ready to plant the flowers and I commented to Lexie about it so this morning she took note of the pretty flowers and wanted to stop on the way into Church to look at them.
When we got home I asked Beau to attempt a family picture. However the weather was overcast and slightly drizzly so all the roly pollies were out…. and Abby and Micah love bugs. Before I could grab the camera, they each had a handful of bugs. Which they were none too happy about being told to drop them and they couldn't bring them inside. With that went any cooperation for the picture as they were concerned about watching the roly pollies on the ground at that point.
They were quickly cheered up by the cascarones from their baskets and wanted to go in the backyard to break them open.
Lexie was unsure about this at first - especially since Micah cracked 2 of his on her head.
Of course the littles find it most hilarious to crack them on Honey!
Beau cooked us a yummy lunch and then after nap time Micah and Abby played next store with the neighbors as they were having a fun Easter party with an egg hunt, piñata, and more cascarones. Then they wanted to dance and Abby and one of the other little boys played judge for the dancing making their own little version of So You Think You Can Dance. Ha! (Though I'm not sure they know what the show is but still it was hilarious to see them set up to judge the dancing)
I hope ya'll have had a wonderful Easter as well.
