Almost ready to hunt the eggs
looking everywhere for eggs
Sam, looking for an egg.
I almost forgot about Sam! He was asleep when our guests arrived. I was just about to say, "GO" for the egg hung to begin when I remembered him! My sister-in-law, Jenny, went inside and woke him up so he could find eggs too!
Cousins--Grace and Leah
The children had been begging us all week to take the winter cover off the pool. As soon as our egg hunt was over, we opened up the pool. Yes, the water is freezing! And yes, Clay does not mind the water temperature.
The children in their new Easter frocks!
I thought the yellow and blue was so pretty!
The Easter bunny came to our house and left each child a basket of candy and a book. Sam ate so much candy on Sunday that by bedtime he was sick!
After our morning church service we invited Jimmy's cousin, Season and her husband, Ryan over to enjoy our lunch with us.
After our evening church service, Jimmy and three other men from church went for a run. A long run. Jimmy ended up running almost 13 miles, and the other men a little less, because when he finished, Jimmy went in his car and picked them up one by one as he came to them. While he was out running for 2 hours, Jimmy missed the excitement at home. We came home from church to no electricity! It apparently had been off since 6 PM, and we got home around 7:45. Our power was restored a little before 10PM. As I told the children, this was not in my plan! Our house looked was a wreck.....as usual for a Sunday evening after I rest on Sunday afternoons and the whole house falls apart. Normally on Sunday nights after we eat our Sunday Night Cereal Supper, we spend 30-45 minutes tidying up the entire house. But with no power, and it was dark!, the kids thought we would be skipping this fun event! After I realized that we may not have power until morning, I gathered all the candles I could find, put headlights on the children, and we all got to work! We cleaned the house anyway! Just as we were getting ready for bed the power came back on. Yay!
All in all, it was a good day!
