Easter Sunday

Besides Makenna keeping me up most of the night due to finding her way to my bed.....we had a really good Easter. Breakfast was at church this morning and my mom and dad joined us. Kayla made me a really cute Easter card which her mom Cindy said that she could not wait to give it to me. It was nice to sit with Kayla and her family at church today.

When we got home we started the ham and chopped up all the veggies. Dinner was very good. My parents, my aunt, Jeremy's mom Linda, and Bob came over for dinner. I love having everyone together. The only thing that was missing was Gavin but I am sure he is having a great day with his dad and that side of the family. My dog is highly enjoying the variety of laps he has to choose from today. If only he had a lap every day....

It was nice to walk outside this morning to see that every single one of my tulips was wide open soaking up the sun. It was as if they knew it was Easter. Makenna loves flowers just as much as I do. I love that the two of us can work in the garden together.

When Makenna went out front, she noticed that the Easter Bunny either dropped eggs in our yard or decided to decorate for us. 
I hope that many people remembered the reason for today. "Christ the Lord has risen today, Alleluia! Earth and Heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia!" One of my favorite hymns. I wish you God's blessings today and every day. I hope this day was as joyous for you as it was for me.

What I am thankful for today:
Easter dinner with family
this warm, sunny, beautiful day
the colors purple and blue
my friends
my family
my children
painted toes

the Hart family
sleep tonight
my health

unconditional love
