Happy Easter!

I love celebrating Easter!  The week before we are reminded of Christ's sacrifice for us.  It's a time of reflection.  On Wednesday our church took the Lord's supper together and Josh preached on the crucifixion.  It really puts thing in perspective and almost leaves our hearts feeling heavy.  But then Easter Sunday arrives. He is risen!  There is excitement in the air!

I wake up early and fill the kiddos baskets with lots of chocolate goodies and candies.  They usually try to dress in spring colors. This year I told the ladies of our church that I wanted to wear an Easter Hat.  Beth, Callie and I had fun shopping for our Easter hats that would go with our dresses.  

As a Pastor's family we know that Easter is a well attended service. So we planned to be packed out in our little building.  On the way to church there was an excitement in the air!

And packed we were!  We had a high day on our van route of 24!  This kids had so much fun in Junior Church!

We had a total attendance of 137!  Wow, VSIBC is really growing!!

Then it was time for the Egg Hunt.  So much fun!

The girls were so cute hunting their eggs.  They really weren't in much of a rush.

I'm so thankful for the friends that God has provided for my kiddos!

 It was a beautiful, sunny day!  

Then, it was time to head home for a big Easter lunch of turkey and ham.  It was so exciting to be all together. 

But, when we arrived home we had a little surprise that changed up our plans.....
