We started the morning off with investigating all the goodies that infamous Easter Bunny had dropped off at our house the night before.. from swimsuit coverups to pjs to endless amounts of candy and money in gold eggs, I think he did pretty well this year, though the highlight was certainly the .99 Hot Wheels.. go figure! The girls were thrilled with their new goodies and might have had a little bit of a candy snack before we got ready and headed to church.
Talk about an Easter miracle, as we made it to church EARLY no less and got to the sanctuary early so we could settle in and grab our seats... I can't lie, Easter is one of my favorite days at church... everyone dressed up in their best (monograms, seersucker, and bright springtime color) but my favorite part is that we always know it's going to be a great sermon and the music will be amazing... and as always our pastor didn't disappoint. Not to mention I was able to look around at my family and realize just how grateful I am for His many blessings and gifts... and as an adult, how I am able to truly realize the reason for Easter and what it means to my life.
Another highlight was Caroline making it through the entire service with us (thanks to my handy dandy backpack packing job of granola bars, a coloring book with stickers, and crayons) and the fact that Carson made it more than 1/2 way through before visiting her class... go sisters!
After church let out, we headed to Mimi and Pappy's house for brunch with the rest of the family... Mimi truly outdid herself as always and it was a day spent taking in way too many sweets, laughing way too much, partaking in the festive egg hunt with the girls, and then winding down and calling it a day. Needless to say, this was an Easter that will be hard to top!
