Ready for a post FULL of pictures?! We had such a fun, busy weekend, and I can’t help but document (a.k.a. overshare) it all. I also posted a link at the bottom of the page to one of my favorite worship songs from our church.
On Friday, Todd and I dyed eggs with Davis. Then that night I had a girls’ night out with Sarah and Ashley to celebrate Ashley’s birthday! Nails, shopping, sushi – perfect combo for a mama’s night out of the house.
I volunteered for church on Saturday, then we went over to my aunt and uncle’s house to celebrate Easter with my side of the family. We were sad to be missing a few people, but it was still a packed house! We ate dinner and watched Bryleigh, Cam, and Davis hunt for Easter eggs. Their great-grandparents gave them (stuffed animal) bunnies that they all loved!
And the most fun part?!! Sarah and Jeremy had a surprise gender reveal! They gave us each an egg, and inside was a blue peep. They’re having a BOY! I am so excited, and it was just the best surprise. Sarah also posted a video on her instagram of their reveal.
On Sunday Davis searched for his Easter basket (he followed a trail of eggs) in his Christmas pajamas (so much laundry!). Then I made pancakes, which really were not very good. Davis even spit some of them out. The morning was certainly not Pinterest-worthy, but we did have a family breakfast and Todd read Davis the Easter story from his Storybook Bible. So that counts as a sort-of win, right?!
We left a huge mess in our house – dirty dishes and Easter eggs everywhere – but we made it to church on time! Spending the morning worshipping Jesus and witnessing people coming to Christ was amazing. I love the community and friendships we have developed at Elevation. We had lunch and relaxed the rest of the day at my parents’ house. It was a weekend that reminded me of the many reasons I have to be thankful. Side note: I think purple may just be my mom’s best color. So pretty!
I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
For the Lamb has overcome. Everlasting love has won. In eternal praise we will lift Him up! For the Lamb has overcome the world.
