just bits, because for the most part my camera sat on my dresser.
not enough hands to mama a rambunctious and adorable 2yo little.
not enough energy to chase said little.
um, can you tell i am tired?
it really is a theme in my life.
rather than baskets, we went the easter watering can route this year.
in addition to the jelly beans, i added a verse in an egg for each of the kiddos, inspired by this post.
and the chocolate bunnies for breakfast were a hit.
we also made resurrection rolls for the first time, so you know we were riding the sugar high all day.
i missed our church service on sunday morning in order to stay home with the goo. we knew he wouldn't make it through the entire outdoor service without sustaining damage to himself or others.
when it was time to go to the backyard potluck afterwards, i just couldn't pull it together. the fatigue from the week combined with the long morning enzo-wrangling on my own added up to a heart in the wrong place.
i needed some quiet. jesse drove the littles on his own and i followed on foot. walking through the neighborhood, taking deep breaths, and praying for peace and perseverance. it was so good. maybe the best decision i have made in the last month.
i arrived to a galloping 5yo princessa running into my arms. then i spied my littlest facing off to a turtle.
yummy food, great people, an egg hunt, gorgeous weather . . . a sweet afternoon among our other family.
i am a bit bummed by the lack of cute kiddo photos. i might just need to stage a little shoot later this week. it depends on that whole not enough hands and energy thing. but the thing is, i am taking care of these babies everyday and that is what is important. i know y'all are saying a big amen with me right here.
this weekend was one of reflection and celebration.
not the "happy, happy" kind. more of the "gut wrenching, i am so broken yet so thankful for His great love and sacrifice" kind. a somber and awestruck joy.
He is risen!
