Easter Greetings! We celebrated Jesus rising from the dead this morning, attending church with my mom, my brother and sister-in-law and their five children. Afterwards it was brunch at my mom's followed by a few egg hunts, a walk in the creek and a birthday cake for my niece Drea.
We couldn't ask for better weather - sunny and warm - a perfect day to be be outdoors.
Little Sister worked hard at building her fort yesterday with a little help from Dad and Big Sister. I'm hoping all the hard work isn't destroyed by the rain we are supposed to get this week.
I've been reading up a storm this weekend, but also working on laundry, cooking a bit, and preparing for the coming week.
In case you didn't notice, I decided it was time to give my blog a little TLC, and my brother has offered to help me change the layout a bit. We worked on it for a while today, but with eight children running around, didn't finish the job. So, you'll possibly (hopefully) be seeing a few more changes in the upcoming weeks on my blog. He's much more skilled than I am at this type of thing, but with a full-time job and five children I feel guilty asking for too much of his time.
Although it is beautiful out, I'm still ready for my post-Easter lunch nap, ready to curl up with a good book. The picture below shows the goodies that found their way to my mailbox this week.
Enjoy your Easter! Happy Spring, everyone!
