We had a wonderful Easter afternoon with some of our friends from church. It turned out to be a beautiful day. The kids had a blast! I know I mentioned the Easter Egg Hunt and the lack of baskets from the Dorminy house. Well, I also thought the Egg Hunt was so relaxed that we would just hide old plastic eggs….empty ones. I brought empty eggs to the egg hunt, and my kids didn’t have baskets…have I already mentioned that? What a loser. Anyway, yeah, Ruby and Molly and Mack love hiding and finding empty eggs. I guess that they are just low-maintenance like that or what they don’t know doesn’t hurt them. Josh wasn’t bothered by it one little bitty bit, of course. He said it would make them stronger. Mark Anderson, a friend of ours, wanted to make it into a game where you see who got the least amount of “Dorminy eggs.” The one with the fewest “Dorminy eggs” would be the winner. Oh, dear.
Well, besides the shame of empty Easter Eggs and children with NO BASKETS with which to hunt, we had a great time. There is no way I can sit here and post every picture I got, but here are some from the afternoon….Let’s start with dessert!
After eating half of the ham, Mack started in on some brownies. They were very good. He just couldn’t stop himself…..
At this point, he is wondering why he pushed through with all the ham and brownies….and he is praying for the Lord to forgive him for being a glutton.
And if you are wondering about Mack’s car seat (and who wouldn’t be at this point?), it is actually Molly’s seat. Josh had taken Mack and Molly’s car seats out to put in his truck on Saturday, then he only felt like putting one back in Sunday morning. So, there you have it. He doesn’t normally ride in a yellow and pink flowery car seat.
So, now, I have finished posting about our Easter shinanigins. It was a beautiful day….nice weather, sweet family, awesome friends, worshipful church service, ALL with the celebration of our Risen Savior as the focus. And while I am glad I have finished posting about Easter day, I hope the celebration of our Risen Savior is experienced every day.
