We had a wonderful Easter this year and it was fun celebrating with Everett. He loved his Easter basket, especially the grass! :) He got some bunny ears and two stuffed animals. Allen and I got a lot of candy that we don't need. My mom was in town to celebrate with us and it was really fun to have her here. She was such a big help to me, especially since I've been feeling a little under the weather with sinus issues. Allen's been feeling it too, probably due to all the pollen. We went to church Easter morning and then over to a friend's house for Easter brunch, with our Young Couples
class at church. It was a good day!
It's amazing to think about how much Jesus has done for us. Easter is such a wonderful holiday to put things in perspective. Allen and I have been reading through the end of 1 Chronicles and into the Psalms. It's been really good to be in God's word together. It's gives me such an assurance that there is a plan for our lives. That we do have a purpose. That God is so much bigger than time and space. I'm so thankful for all God has blessed us with.
We are almost finished painting our living room and dining room. It's looking fabulous. The upstairs toilet is repaired. And now we're about to finish the downstairs bathroom and office/playroom. As Allen says at each step, "All we lack is finishing up." Allen's parents are stopping by this weekend and it will be really good to have them here.
