Happy Easter!!!

As you can see from these pictures that we were up bright and early (6:45am) and the girls were already dressed in their finery ;)  MJ had no clue what was going on and we realized that the Easter Bunny only brought him bath related toys (hehe)!  So, our day began and I paused to think that Maddie is still such a believer in this Easter Bunny and that made my heart happy.  I realize that these beliefs are not around forever and I really want to enjoy them while they are still "true" in our home.  I love that childhood wonder.  It is beautiful and it's what being a kid is all about. 
Church was wonderful this morning.  The message was a reminder of how much God loves us; each of us. Despite everything we do.  That is a miracle.  I'm thankful today that I have a savior who looks at me with more love than even I have for my children.  That is amazing.  He is Risen!

 Oh praise the one who paid my debt
  and raised this life up from the dead

My 35th...

It was a wonderful birthday; probably the best I've had in a long time. I just wanted to make this post so that I can remember how I looked and felt when I turned 35 (with children ages 6.5, 4.5 and almost 9 months).  No wonder I'm so tired!!

Maddie has been taking an art class for the winter and her work was on display over the past 2 weeks locally.  So, on Friday after school we headed down to see it for ourselves.  It was so fun seeing it in person.  You could see and sense how proud she was.  I thought it was pretty amazing.  I just love these moments in time. 

After we saw her art, we headed over to Starbucks to grab a drink and a snack.  As we celebrated, this is what they did.  Love them so much. 

PS: Her picture is of a Unicorn....of course ;)
