Easter Recap

 My life has changed a lot from a year ago.  This time last year we were barely keeping our heads above water with Lucy's health.  Every day seemed to be shadowed with a dark cloud of despair.  These days things seem to be going so well.  I try not to get too far ahead of myself, but planning for our future is so encouraging now.  God has chosen to bless our family and we are truly living every day to the absolute fullest.

I can't believe I'm just getting around to posting our Easter pictures. All this living life to the fullest has us awfully busy, but we love it.  As we were gone the entire week before Easter, we missed a lot of Easter festivities.  We managed to get in the most important fun things in the two short days we had before returning to school.

Of course, top on our list was dying Easter eggs.   Jack was the most excited, as this was the first year he could really participate.  Five spilled cups of Easter egg dye later, we had some really "colorful" creations.  I was so busy cleaning up messes that I hardly got to take any pictures.

Easter morning the kids woke up to three baskets filled with treats.  The Easter Bunny always brings a swimsuit (he's a very practical bunny) and then other little "happies."  

After church, we went to my parents house for Easter lunch.  We had a great egg hunt planned but rainy weather dampened our fun.  We still managed to have a great time with an inside egg hunt.  We got rather creative with our hiding places...look at the picture below of my grandparents.  

After we finished our egg hunt, we celebrated my niece's birthday with some yummy gluten free cupcakes.  She, my mom and I share the same Celiac misfortune.  After more than two years, the GF baked goods are finally growing on me.  Everyone seemed to enjoy them.

I pray that your Easter was as blessed as mine.  I have been reminded on a daily bases of the reason we celebrated that very special day.  I hope you have, too.
