Easter continued

WOW!! Easter was so special this year! I have always been emotional around this time of year because of the heartbreaking, yet miraculous story of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ. However, this year it really hit home because I am a mother now. I can only imagine the hurt that Mary and our Lord must have felt watching what their precious son had to endure. What a gracious Heavenly Father we have!
Jack's schedule kept us in Jackson this year, but we really had a great day!! Our day started with early service. Holden did so well and charmed the ladies in the nursery and all the women at the Piccadilly at lunch. On our way home, we stopped at the lake near our house and had a photo shoot. When we got home, Holden received two big Easter baskets full of goodies thanks to both sets of grandparents and a little help from Jack and me! He was more interested in the grass but it was so fun!!! When Holden got up from his nap, we all dyed Easter eggs. Holden REALLY wanted to drink the dye!! We did an egg for each of us, Wilson, both sets of grandparents, and one in memory of pops(my daddy). Holden and I also made Easter egg and bunny shaped brownies. It was a great day!! Jack and I are so thankful for our sweet little boy and feel so very blessed!!
