Easter 2014

Happy Easter friends!!  He is Risen!!  We've had a great Easter, and it was an absolutely beautiful day.  We've had a low key day at home, just the 3 of us.  
My beautiful girl in her Easter dress.
We started the day with an excellent church service.  Ya'll, our church is AWESOME!!  Seriously!!  If you're local in NWA, come check out First Christian Church in Fayetteville.  You won't be disappointed!  Anyway, we had a great turn out in contemporary service, the bell choir played in traditional service, and today was my day to teach children's church during our traditional service.  This is what Sara Kate took away from the lesson:
"Baby Jesus is alive!  The good witch, I mean the angel, rolled the rock away from the tomb and Baby Jesus was gone.  He's alive!"
Melt this mama's heart!!

After church we had to come home to see if the Easter bunny had visited!  In our house, the Easter bunny comes while we're at church.  He fills Sara Kate's basket with goodies and hides the eggs we dyed on Saturday.  She was so excited to see what he left!  She actually said the Easter bunny is a big purple bunny and it's a girl.  Haha.  And let me preface the following pictures with Sara Kate and her tacky looking Easter basket by saying, her basket is mine from when I was a kid, which I love.  But the bow was looking kind of rough from years in the closet.  So I had my mom make a new bow for it last year but that bow got mega smashed in the closet (go figure) and I don't make bows!  So it just kind of looks blahh this year.  But Sara Kate doesn't care so it doesn't really matter.  The Easter bunny also leaves her basket outside the front door.
 The Easter bunny obviously shops at Target. :-)
 Ready to hunt for eggs!!
  There's a story behind this egg.  When I post our egg dyeing pictures, I'll explain!
Once all the eggs were found, we had one happy girl!
 Love her!
We've spent a relaxing afternoon at home, doing a whole lot of nothing except playing outside and playing with new toys.  Sara Kate made a "princess" (haha) with the new Play-Doh and painted a lovely picture of Ariel, which then ended up covered in spilt water.  Oh well.
We even cooked an Easter-ish meal of ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, and I made deviled eggs.
Overall we had a great Easter and we are so thankful that we worship a risen Savior!  Hope everyone had a blessed Easter!  Happy Easter from our family to yours!
