We had a really great Easter weekend. Ryder learned all about Easter this week at school and had an egg hunt and party on Thursday. He brought this home and told me, "Mommy, this is a 'cwoss' and it means God loves us!" I was a proud momma. So we hung it in the window for the weekend.
Saturday we had an Easter rehearsal at church and then Daniel I had a lunch date :) Sushi & cupcakes. Saturday afternoon we colored eggs. That was an adventure. Paisley just wanted to spill the dye and Ryder was more intrigued with the fact that they would crash and break if he hit them!
Looking at the surviving eggs!
Easter morning we had to rise & shine early! Notice, it's still dark out...
checking out her basket
Ready to go!
Not sure whether to go with the hat or the headband!?!
Love my girl.
We had a great service. We did some special music & videos and I sang Kari Jobe's, "O the Blood." Great song. The kids had an egg hunt during service so I snuck out after worship and got a few pics of Ryder.
Ryder giving Ellie some love after church! :)
Workin' it in her hat!
Me & my little Easter bunnies! Going on 5 hours at church at this point - they were getting loopy!
And tada! The Easter family picture. All matching, all still put together and all looking in the direction of the camera!!!
We grabbed some lunch after church at Z Tejas.
Daddy & his girl! She was saying "Cheese!"
Ryder asked to have his picture taken on this rock.
We went home and all took a good nap then we headed out to meet Phillip & Kristin at her parent's new lake house. The guys took Ryder out on the boat!
While us girls chilled and met them for dinner out on the pier.
It was a beautiful day. We serve a risen Savior and He is so good to us. We missed being with family, but we love our spiritual family and all that God is doing there! We started a new series at church yesterday called Beautiful Things.
You make beautiful thing, beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful thing, beautiful things out of us.
