....so here it is, 7:30 PM on Saturday night, the night before Easter. I was laying out the kids clothes - the same pink polo shirts & khaki pants for the boys, and an adorable little dress from a friend for Callie. Then it dawned on me - I don't have white shoes for Callie!!! DUH! Easter Sunday = white shoes!! Time to put away the black ones. HELLO!!! David is leading worship at another local church tonight, so as soon as he gets home, it's off to Target I go!!! Probably should get some of those lacy socks too, right? (Although it's going to be cold enough tomorrow for wool tights, I'm sure)!
It's been a fabulous day though. The kids and I have done 2 egg hunts - one with the neighborhood, and one at the local park. The city wide one had pony rides, moon bounces, and crafts which was really fun too. The neighborhood one had the kids make their OWN resurrection eggs, which Josiah LOVED because we have been doing them as a family - so he caught along quickly. We've made our Resurrection cookies and the oven is sealed up (ya'll have seen that recipe right? Meringues basically, and you turn the oven off and tape it up. In the morning, you come look at the cookies, and the middle is HOLLOW - just like the empty tomb! Every step of the recipe has a scripture, etc, etc. ). The boys LOVED that process. I have had so much fun with them this week - even more so than all the Christmas traditions. I think maybe because they are older and are more capable of understanding the story and the meaning. Maybe because you don't have the commercialism to deal with like you do with Christmas. I don't know, but it's been wonderful. Looking forward to a GREAT day of worship tomorrow. Signing off...and heading to Target for Size 4 white shoes soon!!! :)
