Sleeping the day away on Easter Sunday!
We were so busy with all of our many activities that we didn't even do the minimum...egg decorating or even egg hunting. I wonder if it is because my kids are getting older....they didn't even ask about the eggs. They knew there was a Bunny coming sometime soon. Saturday evening...they remembered it was that night...when they found the Easter baskets hiding in the closet!
I have been working night weekends for the past several years, so almost every weekend....I sleep on Sundays... all day. That was true for Easter Sunday too. My family went to church, where they all received brand new leather Bibles, then they enjoyed a wonderful Easter dinner with our dear friends and their family.
They ate ham and casseroles, fruit and rolls, deviled eggs and dessert. They had a water fight and played and enjoyed the celebration. Emily drank sweet tea for the first time in 40 days! And I just slept! I had to though, because on Sunday night, I was back at work for 12 more hours.
I have no pictures to share...no fun crafty goodnes to share...I suppose I could share my friends recipe for pineapple cheese casserole (one of my favorites)....it was on my plate of leftovers.
I believe that Easter is absolutely worth celebrating. The fullness and glory and freedom that became mine because of the Risen Lord! I really do. I am certain that next year, things will be different. For now, I will be enjoying your photos and crafts and recipes .....and celebrations!
And......I can tell the school year will be coming to an end soon. So many things are filling up my calendar. Does that happen to your calendar too? End of year parties, teacher gifts to buy, End of Grade testing, the start of swim team season, soccer and more soccer and so much more!
Will your week be as busy as mine?
Have a great one!
