Today in Easter church the pre-school kids were sleeping flowers until they were “awakened” to say their lines. We had a lily and a “wose” (Miss A’s pronunciation of rose).
It was not Miss A’s best day in church and everyone in attendance heard that, especially during communion. She shouted “give me some”, several times, loudly and “I don’t want water! I want that juice!” It was an Easter Sunday to remember.
Hunter and I attended the local sunrise service where youth from several churches lead it. Hunter led a prayer. Then at our church service where our whole family plus Nana, Grandpa Eldon and Auntie Lori attended Hunter did the same prayer and also played the trumpet with his buddy, Tyler alongside the church choir.
The girls had dresses handmade by my mom this Easter. They were fabulous and even though the weather was cooler than somedays we’ve had already this Spring, it was a beautiful Easter.
The Easter bunny came to Nana and Grandpa’s house. Auntie Lori and Miss E found he was quite sneaky, leaving the girls a few outfits hanging outside. There was an Easter basket for Daddy in the washing machine, a hidden basket in the coffee table for Hunter and more goodies stashed throughout the house and yard.
Grandpa Eldon helped Miss E and Miss A hunt for eggs and claimed he saw the Easter Bunny hopping down the alley behind their house. The girls scurried around the corner only to find…
new bicycles! As soon as we were complete with Nana’s homemade Easter dinner with all the fixings, the girls had to get outside on their new bikes. Daddy and Hunter had them put together in no time.
Miss A moved up from her tricycle to her own two wheeler. She pedaled away and will be putting on the miles this year.
