Thoughts, stories, and pictures of this sweet journey we call life

Ella and Laila were up early Easter morning to try to spot the Easter bunny. Lo and behold, he had already come and gone while they were sleeping, leaving behind some of their favorite goodies.
Cade was up next and all smiles
Our lil' sleeping beauty finally came down the stairs and joined the fun. Can't you hear her saying, "Ooooohh!" ♥
We tried for a few pictures of the kids in their Easter best before church, but they had another thing in mind. I love this picture of Harper peeking out from behind Ella, hiding her giggles with her little fingers. SO cute!
So after church, we decided to try again.
Ella was trying to stand still and smile, but everyone else was doing their own thing. I was cracking up going through these pictures. Pure chaos!

What a great weekend! I am so thankful for two whole days to spend with family and friends, enjoying each other and celebrating birthdays. I am thankful that my kiddos, while still enjoying all the worldly Easter fun, understand that Easter is when Jesus died on the cross and, as Cade says with his little arms over his head, "He saved the WHOLE world." I am thankful that Ella is not afraid to share her faith and the message of Easter with her friends, as I overheard her doing this week. I am so thankful for an inspiring church home and a wonderful place to worship Easter Sunday. Most of all, I am so thankful for my Jesus who loves me in spite of myself. Blessed indeed!
