Even after a busy day yesterday, Jacob was still up before 8 this morning! Since Anna just put her head under her pillow when I told her it was time to get up, I bribed her with Easter surprises! Thanks to Aunt Cara for the super cute, homemade Easter baskets (not sure why I didn't get a picture of them) and surprises! They made getting Anna up this morning easy as pie! haha
Once again, Uncle Windell sent the kids their outfits (and of course, the matching baby doll dress, too). They looked so handsome/beautiful.
Uncle Windell also sent the kids Easter baskets. Jacob got a Lightening McQueen basket (he LOVES it!). Anna got a Princess & the Frog basket (she LOVES it!)
I LOVE his face in this one! He caught on quickly that the eggs that rattled had candy in them! haha He did have a lot of fun hunting for them.
All that aside, today was a meaningful day of worship for us. A church in town puts up a cross with a verse that says "Is it nothing to you, all who pass by?" Shamefully, I forget too often the great sacrifice Jesus made. During Sunday school today, it was open for people to share. One man shared that God's wrath was exhausted on Jesus at the cross. That means there is no wrath left for me, a believer! All my sins are covered by His great sacrifice! "Christ the Lord is risen today! Alleluia!!!"
