Easter Wrap-up Post

Things have been pretty hectic around here this week. Erin's birthday party is tomorrow (Sat.), and I am getting everything prepared for that. It will be at a pavilion at a park near here and it's supposed to rain, so I am getting some games that we can play under the pavilion and trying to plan for the worst. I just wanted to post about our Easter Sunday. The Easter Bunny came bright and early and left some candy and gifts.








Later that morning, we went to Smithfield United Methodist. They always have a beautiful, moving and LOUD Easter Service. The choir was accompanied by the Hand Bell Choir, a four piece brass band, timpani drums and the organ. It was a joyful celebration of Jesus' Resurrection. I always get a lump in my throat when the congregation sings "Christ the Lord is Risen Today" accompanied by all those instruments. Our celebration could probably be heard for miles.

Great pics, and your service sounds wonderful! Yes, Amelia has asthma, although my pediatrician doesn't call it that in two year olds - they call it reactive airway disease until they're 4 or 5 and can confirm asthma. I have it, so I guess she got it from me :( The albuterol wasn't cutting it last night, so we're going back to the pediatrician today to see what else we can do.

Garret looks like he don't know what to do with his basket. Erin knows what to do with Garret's basket. If only she was alowed to touch it.
