Eggs and Jesus



Seriously... cutest kids in the world. This was before we left for church with only 15 minutes to spare. BIG mistake! Somehow, the fact escaped me that half the city would be at church on this given Sunday. As we neared the entrance to the church parking lot Joe exclaimed "keep going! If there are cars coming out, it means there aren't any more spots." "Are you kidding me?!" I cried. There has to be at least a hundred parking spots in that lot!! But he was right. We followed the "smart" cars and parked in the school lot down the street. Joe held Aubrey and we each held one of Brendan's hands as we rushed the half mile walk from the lot to the church in what felt like 30 degree weather with 20mph winds. We took our seats on the floor outside the interior doors and couldn't see or hear a thing. But we were there. And I suppose that's what counts. We did our best to teach our kids that Easter is about so much more than eggs and candy... that Jesus died and rose again for our salvation (the REAL reason we enjoy this glorious holiday!)

Your kids look adorable! I love the green! I was lucky enough to have someone save me a seat. That was Saturday night though. I cannot imagine what Sunday morning looked like.

I can't believe how cute the kids are! I LOVE those outfits. I tried to do matching with my kids, but Nora will only wear pink these days.
