Easter! He is Risen!

So this post is WAY late.  Life has been full lately but I didn’t want to forget to post about our Easter!!  Easter Sunday can be tough for our family.  Tim is in charge of the technical ministry at our church and I run the presentation computer every other week.  This usually means being the front of house engineer and I am running presentation on holidays.  This use to be super tough pill for me to swallow.  I wanted to have the relaxed and laid back morning before heading to church and celebrating Jesus’ resurrection!  However, this year God really worked on my heart!  I embraced our opportunity to serve our congregation and do so with a happy heart.  I know this was completely God working in my heart since I have tried to do this on my own in the past.  All that to say our morning was super rushed since we had to be out the door at 6:45!  Also a testament to how busy our life is I didn’t even go unpack Sammy’s Easter basket and I put his stuff in a bowl from the kitchen!  He didn’t seem to mind!

This year we cut down on the candy and the little plastic toys and got ‘practical’ items for Sammy.  Sammy got Monsters Inc. movie, a t-shirt, flip flops, lego set, dinosaurs and some candy.  He didn’t miss the eggs filled with candy and the little wind up toys.  (Not that there is anything wrong with that.  I am just trying to reduce clutter in our house and those things don’t keep his interest for very long)

After that we were off to church to celebrate and thank Jesus for our salvation!  After an amazing service we headed over to Tim’s sister’s house for a wonderful Easter dinner.  Then everyone hung out and watched Sammy’s new movie!  It was one of the best Easter Sundays I can remember!
