This Easter...

snuck up on us.

we realized we had absolutely no plans for Easter, and after praying and discussing..

about 2 days before Good Friday

we decided to change things up a bit
our church enjoyed a breakfast Easter morning together, and Rob left really early to go help prepare Sunday morning
so we got surprises in our baskets Saturday morning!
it was so fun!


and then we had an all day fellowship at our house on Saturday

friends, family, church family from years gone by and our current church family

people just dropped by and stayed and ate and played!

no children were harmed in the making of this photograph...promise! Crickett just giggled and giggled at the end of the slide!

in fact, we had so much fun, we totally forgot to hide eggs!

and ya know what? No one even seemed to mind!

So today, Resurrection Sunday, has been a low-key, simple day. A Sabbath day of worshiping our Risen Lord and Savior! I think I like this change in tradition!
