Easter Morning!

 

BEAUTIFUL

We woke up very early on Sunday to enjoy the quietness and to start making the oh-so-important macaroni and cheese for our Easter lunch.  When I came down from getting Mack out of his crib, I saw this beautiful sky!  I took a picture because it was just that beautiful.  What a great way to start Easter morning.

Our little munchkins woke up because they heard their Daddy in the kitchen making more than a little bit of noise with pots and pans and lots and lots of cheese.  The kids had their Easter treats sitting out at the table since I cannot find their Easter Baskets.  Seems that during my cleaning frenzy about five months ago, I stored away many things, Easter baskets being one of them.  I struggled with not letting this “get to me.”  I thought I had moved on from it, but after the girls had to use a Maggiano’s paper sack and a “Go Green” grocery bag for the Easter Egg hunt with friends, I realized that the fact that I couldn’t find their PBK personalized Easter Baskets did “get to me.”  UGH.  But, that is a story for another post.  This post is intended to be about Easter Morning.  Here are the sleepy kids at the breakfast table….

Josh took some pictures of the kids in their Easter outfits.  I am not a fancy kid-dressing Easter gal.  I don’t know why I don’t do it, seeing how I had an Easter hat each year with a poofy dress and patent leather black shoes with fold-down frilly socks AND a patent purse to match.  Fun times.  But the kids did look cute to me!

Our church service was wonderful. The kids seemed to enjoy their Sunday School classes as well.  We are so thankful for the church we attend and at which we serve.  We are blessed!  And we are blessed with great friends.  After Easter morning we went to The Pizza’s house for lunch along with several other couples.  At this time, I have to run and get the girls ready for dance class.  I will try and get another post of sweet pictures with our friends later today!
