Miscellany Monday

It's Monday, I am blogging and it's all sorts of miscellany!

1. Easter time!  We had great success with the Resurrection Eggs this year.  Usually I have the best of intentions and we start but never finish, or never even start, but this year we did all 12 eggs!  We did them after Lucy went to bed, after night 1 it was obvious this was still a Molly year...maybe next year Lucy May :)

The girls were spoiled and got 4 Easter baskets this year {3 from grandparents, 1 from mom/dad}.  My mom got these cute book bags for the girls.  They love that their names are on them, plus it helps with the whole "give it back to her" thing.   

2.  Molly's Spring Break started out with a trip to the doctor's...both girls have sinus infections.  I hate never knowing sinus/allergy/colds...ugh.  So we are all medicated up and I think they both are feeling better.  They took a little snooze on the way home from the pharmacy. 
3. Easter morning was fun...we hid Molly's and Lucy's Easter baskets, they had no clue.  I kept giving them clues and I was waiting for Molly to ask me how I knew where they were, but she never did.  I struggled with the basket thing this year.  I bought the girls matching pink Toms and that was about it.  We have been so busy I just didn't get to the store this past week.  So at the grocery store on Saturday I snuck some bubbles in the cart, then I found some workbooks I bought on the Dollar Spot a while ago to do this summer, and put those in their baskets.  I am not against Easter baskets, and honestly wish someone would send me one, ha!  But I just struggled with the whole having more toys/books/crap around that we don't need.   

4.  Happy Opening Weekend!  So you know our church bought an old Wal-Mart and renovated know a 6 month project that we did in 72 days, yea that one.  Well, as of late Saturday night we were set to go for Sunday morning.  Praise the Lord, because it was only God that made this happen.  I get choked up and teary just typing about our church.  I will write more tomorrow about it all and post pictures, but for today here is our "after Easter services" faces. 

5.  The weather was finally "warm" enough {40 degrees} to go play outside.  My kids are going stir crazy inside, and so am I!  Or I might just be going crazy!  While our ham baked yesterday we went to a new park and played! 

Poor Lucy could not figure out why this seat kept spinning in circles, it was so funny watching her!
Happy Monday, friends!!

Love all the pictures. I am with you on the Easter baskets. Ours this year were filled with things they would actually wear or use like toothbrushes and toothpaste. I filled their eggs with notes that said: 1 free chore pass and you would have thought they had struck GOLD. Definitely doing that over candy from now on. :)

I am so happy for your new church. If we are ever headed your way, I would love to attend.

I love the easter back pack and the easter bunny note. We had a cold spring break (I guess we are not that far from you) then when it did warm up we tried to go to the zoo, and so did everybody else! They closed the zoo because the parking lots were all full! Crazy. It looks like you all had a good holiday. That's awesome.
