Our Easter Sunday started bright and early so that we could meet grandma, grandpa, aunt Rachel, uncle Tommy, aunt Laura and cousin Ella at church by 8:45AM. Drew and I got up and dressed before going in and waking Jensen. When I walked into her room she looked up at me, smiled and said “mornin'”. She had dry boogies all over her face and nose and her hair was all over the place with hard, crusty boogies matting pieces of her hair together. I took a deep breathe and kindly (well sorta :)) asked Drew to come and assist me! Now, I must explain, Jensen has been suffering from allergies or something for about the last week. She is congested, but has a runny nose, she is coughing and hasn’t been sleeping through the night very well. So Sunday apparently was the peak of her symptoms.
We quickly took her to the bathroom and wiped her face with a warm washcloth, pulled her hair back into a ponytail and got her dressed for church. Both Ella and Jensen did very well during the service and I even got a pic of Drew holding both beautiful girls!
After the service, we all headed to grandma and grandpa’s house to stuff easter eggs for our hunt and prepare food for the BBQ. First, aunt Laura surprised Jensen and Ella with similar outfits and of course we had to change the girls and take some photos!!! Too cute!
Then we stuffed eggs…..
Just like in year’s past, after eating our yummy lunch of BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixins, grandma and grandpa headed outside to hide all the easter eggs! Again this year we had two money eggs, each containing $21 dollars and Drew and I were on a mission to find those eggs!!
This year grandma and grandpa also put some eggs out for Jensen to pick up while all of us big “kids” were enjoying our easter egg hunt. I’m so glad mom took my camera and snapped some pics for me……Jensen is so cute grabbing up these easter eggs and putting them in her basket!
Here is how the egg hunt turned out this year:
First place: Tommy and Rachel with 21 eggs
Second place: Lynette and Dave with 19 eggs
Tied for Third/Last place: Laura/Ella and Drew/Steph – with 17 eggs
But I am very happy to report that Drew and I found one of the money eggs this year!!!! Laura found the other one. So even though we lost again this year we did walk away with some $$$$!!!
We had an amazing Easter and feel truly blessed! I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter and celebrated with those you love!
