Things have been a little bit crazy around here and I haven't had time to keep up with the blog like I always hope I can. It has been so nice to be able to look up posts over the last few years to remember things. We have had lots of winter sicknesses through the house, a trip to the allergist for Ezra for ongoing, unexplained hives, getting a dog and sadly having to find a new home for him, a job change for Danny, and now we are getting our house ready to sell! Cra.zy.
We attempted church this morning, ended up sitting in the back and leaving early. Since we've been sick and haven't been able to go to church in awhile, Cohen was a little out of the routine plus no children's church and the Easter excitement and it just wasn't going to happen. So we ended up sitting through the singing and then making our way up for Easter breakfast being served through the rest of the service. We tried. I'm thankful it's about Jesus and all HE has done and not about us.
I didn't even get a good picture of the boys before church and since we've been so crazy I didn't even get to get them any cute matching outfits or anything. Oh well, maybe next year.
After the church fiasco, we gave the boys their little Easter baskets (bubble guns! Giant chalk!) and then headed over to my parents house for lunch. My sister plans an awesome egg hunt every year and the boys were super excited about it.
Ezra was all in and ran around the yard collecting eggs like a champ. Cohen was a little more selective, choosing only the blue, pink and purple eggs and returning the rest to the yard for someone else.
After lunch and egg hunting, the boys were ready for a sugar crash so we left to take Carter some flowers and then home. Ezra fell asleep on the five minute drive home after no nap. We saw some sun this afternoon which was SO nice and much needed.
Happy Easter! He is risen!
