The odd thing about morning time at the Wood house, is that the mornings I need the kids to wake up early they inevitably sleep late. This phenomena continued on Easter morning. This little princess woke up before her brother and she patiently waited until Ryan got up to see her Easter basket.
Sleepy head finally woke up and discovered a new LEGO. He puts these together in record time!
Then it was off to church. The kids got to sit in "big church" with us this year which was a treat! After church Ally asked me if she could go to little church now. She's So sweet!
Ally and Lila were matching and somehow Kacey and I coordinated with them. We honsetly couldn't have done this if we tried. We attempted to get a group picture but the girls weren't having it.
And GP and the kids
Easter is such a wonderful day. Every year we read the children's book, The Best Thing About Easter and although Easter eggs, springtime, chocolate bunnies, furry bunnies and fuzzy baby ducks, new clothes and church are all great, the best thing about Easter is Jesus! We only have Easter because of Jesus. It was all part of God's amazing plan.
I love my children with all the love I have in my heart and that doesn't even touch the love that Christ has for us. We love because He first loved us. Thank you Lord for sacrificing your only son so that I may have eternal life with you. The forgiveness and grace I feel everyday as I stumble around and make mistakes is almost too much to process.
This is what love is: God loved us and sent His Son 1 John 4:10
He is risen! He is risen indeed!!!
