Happy Easter to all my peeps. I am not a fan of Peeps, actually. But do you know what I do love? Cadbury Mini Eggs. And can I just say that a tragedy has occurred in the assembling of this year's Easter baskets by grandma Stanley? She could not find any Cadbury Mini Eggs. Which was met by much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Because I am a grateful, thankful person.
Luckily, I remembered that I gained 4 pounds on vacation last week, so I forgave Publix for being out of Mini Eggs.
Oh and I also remembered the real reason for today.
"Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus"(Romans 6:8-1).
Amen and Amen.
It was a great Easter Sunday today. We started out with some mad crazy Easter Egg hunting downtown at church. And a fantastic play at church (which I might blog about at some point. It was life-changing y'all). After the service, there were hundreds of kids running around looking for Easter Eggs and eating hot dogs. Because nothing says "resurrection" like plastic eggs and hot dogs without buns (we ran out). But in all seriousness, it was a GREAT outreach - we had tons of kids there, and the church was packed out.
And a little family picture from our time at the g-parents house after church.
And did y'all even think for a second that I would leave you without some pictures of Jayci's first Easter? Of course not. You know me so well.
