It was spring....and then it wasn't

Easter weekend was fullfullfull!
So full we decided to let the kids have their Easter baskets on Saturday afternoon because having a pastor daddy makes Sunday a work day, Good Friday a work day, and Easter Sunday a *packed* workday. 

Giving the kids Easter baskets the day before might actually be what we do from now on.
It was such a calm and relaxed time together. 

It gave us plenty of time to enjoy each other and the kids, their surprises.
We didn't feel rushed to make the meaning of the weekend clear to them and share again what Jesus did for us. 

Blurry pictures because kids = constant movement

Easter morning, I had every intention of hopping up out bed and baking some cinnamon rolls for the kids and myself. 
I didn't. 
I overslept.
We rushed to get dressed and make it in time to our church's first service. 

I did have the mental capacity though to station the kids together for a quick pic before the bows fell out and the boy was covered in cheerio crumbs from the nursery.

1st try...

2nd try...

3rd try....good enough!

After church, we hightailed it to Meemaw's house for 
ham, cake, and an Easter egg hunt with cousins!

So yea, you would think after a lovely spring-y Easter like that it would just stay spring, right?
Not so fast.

This morning we woke up to a freshly frosted neighborhood. 
Lots of people have crossed over to full on rage. 

Kenna asked me if we could go get a Christmas tree.
I said no. 
But I did plug in some Christmas lights. 
We might as well make the most of it and set up another indoor Easter egg hunt.
