Soooo back to Sunday in the sanctuary. We got there right before service began and this meant there were very few seats to be found. I am already mad because I couldn't get myself and the girls together to make it to Sunday school, then we walk into a packed house and of course our normal a little over halfway to the front on the left hand side by the windows seats are taken. And all I could think was "Who are all these people and why are they here? I mean where are they every other Sunday. You do not have the right to sit in my seat if you don't come to more than holiday services." I honestly did not have my heart or mind in the right place because I remember those craptastic thoughts and can not tell you one word of our AMAZING pastor's sermon. And FYI, since January 17th, we have sat in our seats once. This is because when we do make it to church we are so late that we have to sneak in the back. One day life will get back to normal. AND I do love seeing a full sanctuary. We have such a wonderful church and I'd love to share it with the whole world. I would just love our holiday visitors to join us other Sundays as well.
Fortunately, we had a lot of fun events that led up to the most important day of our Christian faith when I decided to act like a 5 year old brat and here is your sneak peak:
Our church Easter egg hunt blew Callway's out of the water!
Amelia was serious about hunting some eggs this year! I even tried to get her to put a few of hers in Annie's basket for a photo and she wouldn't give up even one egg
Mom and I got creative *shocker!* and found some fun ideas. Mom and Amelia made some Rice Crispies Easter Eggs during the week and Saturday night at Nana's we all made a Peeps Cake. It wasn't very pretty, but it was good!
Last year the Easter Bunny had this great idea of leaving his tracks with eggs and he did it again this year. Such a creative bunny!
I love these sweet sisters!
Happy Easter Annie
The family photo I didn't want to take (again because I was being obnoxiously emotional)
Have I mentioned how hard it is to get a pretty picture of both girls at the same time?
Annie is such a pleasant baby
Amelia had a rough day, because she is 2 after all, but she took a long nap (Mommy took one with her) and we both woke up feeling great.
So, all in all, Easter 2012 was not perfect and my attitude stunk but it was our Easter. Praise God the tomb is empty and praise God that the sanctuary was full!! And Praise God my family loves me and is still putting up with me! :)
