Hope Abounds

Another holiday, another opportunity to share our traditions, and another set of coordinated attire. This Easter marked the first holiday in which none of the children’s outfits were handmade by me. 

Thankfully, the Strasburg Children in our local mall (My favorite Sunday Clothes shop) went out of business just before Christmas and I bought a set of outfits I thought I could use for Rachel’s baptism. I am always trying to restrain myself in there because their things are adorable, and coordinated, and expensive,but when the clearance rack goes fifty percent off, you have to give yourself a little lee-way!!

It was an amazing day, the weather was perfectly spring, the potluck breakfast at church was crowded with good people, good food and great fellowship. They added an Egg Hunt this year, and the kids just loved it!! My favorite moment of course, was the children’s minute during the service, where for the first time ever it was our kids who called out the answers. I was BEAMING that they were able to share the story of this most important holiday.

The children are excellent egg hunters, and were very tickled that the Easter Bunny saw fit to hide eggs all over the playroom. So here’s the pics, (we apparently took about a hundred) but here are just a few. 

Much love to you, 

He Is Risen Indeed!!

I can't believe you didn't make the outfits...but they do still look quite adorable (I also can't believe I missed the goign out of business sale!)
Can't wait to see you. I'll be there in 2 days!
Also, I love the note from the Easter Bunny, what a great idea!

I had no idea that you were going to get so fancy with the eggs! They look awesome. The kids outfits are adorable - I'm such a sucker for a nice pretty green. Especially when it's mixed with something else: purple/pink/yellow/blue.
