More Easter…

One word describes Emily (me) these past weeks…..”BLEK”…..

(if that is a real word.)

The glories of the first trimester, right? But at least there is reassurance that comes along with feeling a little green. (Or a lot green.)

This too shall pass….

(p.s. we heard the baby’s heartbeat for the first time today. Nice and strong. I think that “thump, thump, thump” has to be one of my most favorite sounds in all the earth.)

…so I need to do a little catch up.

Here they are in their Easter best.

Rebekah asked… “Why do we get so dressed up for Easter?”

Do you know why?

WE ARE READYING OURSELVES FOR THE KING!

I love the tradition of getting dressed up for church. And really that is the thought behind it.

Just imagine if you were going to see a king, queen, president … you would get yourself slightly more spiffy than normal. And every Sunday when we head to church we are getting ready to be in the presence of our Lord.

THE KING OF KINGS!

Worthy of our BEST!

And on Easter we pull out the curling iron and a few extra frills. All to honor our LIVING LORD!

Princess press-on-nails were in the girls’ Easter baskets. Anna’s lasted 5 minutes, Bekah’s about an hour. It’s kind of hard to do  a lot with an inch of plastic on the end of each finger tip.

Picture time! Micah was in the mood to ham it up…. not exactly take a sweet picture with his sisters.

Micah is not a hat enthusiast…we tried to get him to wear the hat, at least for a picture…

it didn’t work.

1.) Daddy puts the hat on Micah.  2.) Quick shot… but the hat is not staying.    3.) “I don’t want to wear it!”  4.) “THAT’S WHAT I THINK ABOUT THE HAT!NO THANKS!”

We had rain and wet weather for the majority of the day but it did dry up enough for us to have, at least part of, my dad’s infamous egg hunt.

This year he hid over 100 eggs inside and outside.… (including a special egg for each of the adults to find. And believe me there was no shame in our eagerness to find “our” eggs. My egg was zipped into a decorative pillow.)Winking smile 

Egg hunting is serious business in my family!

Hunting for eggs with nails… more difficult than one might think.
