The girls woke up this morning seemingly forgetting about the visitor.  I could hear them talking, but not quite able to make out their words.  Just a lot of chatter back and forth.  But no one was bursting from the bedroom wanting to rush downstairs.

Daddy went to check on them first.  He found them excitedly trying to get dressed in their new Easter dresses.  He suggested they leave their PJs on because we had some time before church.

"And ... aren't you forgetting something else?" I paused, waiting. "Happy Easter!"

"Oh! Happy Easter! Can we go downstairs?!?" It dawned on them about that special visitor.

The girls raced down the stairs -- "Wait!  I want to get a picture!" I yelled from behind them.  And then the egg hunt was on.  They searched high and low, near and far, from room to room. Filling up their baskets with eggs. Then returned to the Easter baskets filled with candy, chocolate bunnies, and little goodies.  They opened more colorful plastic eggs finding surprises inside.

After a big breakfast and a little play time, the girls were finally able to put on those new Easter dresses.  Together, we celebrated the true meaning of Easter with church and family.  It was a great day full of family, food, and fun all for that visitor that rose from the dead for us on this day.

  3. I agree with Lynn! Sounds like you had a terrific day! I haven't tried the watercolor app yet, not even sure what it is called, but it sure does cool things.
