We Serve A Risen Savior!

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. Ours was lots of fun, and the weather held up fabulously! Here are some of the pictures from yesterday. Saturday we spent some time outside (I'll post pics tomorrow), and then set off to a birthday party. Sunday started with Easter basket revealing and everyone getting prettied up for church. We have never done the Easter Bunny thing. The kids know that we get their baskets. This year though we included all the goodies that Grandma and Poppy sent them in our annual Easter box from Tennessee. They were very excited. Off to church we went, where we had a great service, and the kids enjoyed our church's annual Easter Egg Hunt. They even got a picture with the Easter Bunny, our very own Brittany Massey home from Hyles Anderson College. After church, we had Candy, Mark, and Belle over for Easter lunch. Instead of a traditional ham, we opted for Jeremy's grilled barbecue chicken. Delicious!! While lunch was being prepared, the kids scoured over their bounty from the Easter Egg Hunt. I can't begin to tell you how much candy they ate yesterday. Now it will be rationed of course, but yesterday they were free to devour it! We had a great afternoon of fellowship and fun. The best part? Watching Belle shoot the kids' nerf dart gun at a target that Jeremy drew on our sliding glass door. I think the adults had way more fun with those things than the kids! At the end of the day we were tired but satisfied with a great day, great fellowship, and great food! Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty for the miracle of Easter!
