We started out our Easter weekend with an egg hunt at church. Each year, TBC hosts an Easter Extravaganza with blow-ups, food, and several hundred eggs. It’s tons of fun. The weather was great and we spent the entire afternoon just hanging out at church, fellowshipping with our people.
Saturday night, we hosted dinner at our house for some friends. Justin put some tri-tip on his new Orion cooker (which we are LOVING!), the guys stood around outside, the girls sat around inside, and the kids ran amuck everywhere. It was perfect.
Our church participated in the Forget the Frock movement this year, making our own shirts to raise money to feed the hungry in our community. Being totally superficial here, but it made getting ready a BREEZE, I tell ya!
I prayed for God to show-up and show-out on Sunday morning and He did not disappoint. Jase and I usually hang out in the back of the church in case he gets fussy, so I got to witness the extra chairs they kept having to bring in to seat all the people. Talk about a packed house. The kids sang two songs and it always warms my heart seeing my girls worship. The whole service was God-breathed and just what I needed.
After church, we went to Pop and GraGra’s house for lunch and an egg hunt. (The above photo was the calm before the chaos!) There were ten prize eggs stuffed with money hidden, so each kid hit the jackpot.
Libby walked away with $12, Kyndall with $10. (Back in my day, we had to fight over ONE $10 prize egg, but whatever, man.)
Spending time with my people is one of my most favorite things to do.
FYI: I’m the WISEST (read: oldest) of this group. So proud of each one of these cousins and the wonderful people they are becoming!
We rounded out the evening sans-Justin (he got called in to work) with cereal for dinner (it’s the meal of champions, ya’ll), a fever for Kyndall (boo.), and an early bedtime for Mom and kids. I’m so thankful my God rose from the grave and gave us a reason to celebrate this day.
