Easter 2014

Easter this year was crazy busy for us, but when you are in the life of Ministry, holidays are always busy.

We spent Good Friday relaxing, the hubs and I finishing a few last minute Easter things, and time with family. We spent Friday evening at my in-laws with everyone and had an amazing prime rib dinner with lots of yummy fixins! Paisley did a little egg hunt, opened up her Easter basket, and we had a grand ole time dying Easter eggs. Paisley colored all 36 eggs. She was a busy girl and loved every minute of it, mess and all :)

Saturday, we had little Easter donuts for breakfast, let Paisley see the animals at the Chick-fil-a petting zoo, and mid-afternoon the hubs and I had to leave for our first Easter service at church. Paisley spent the evening with Grandma and Grandad and had a blast I am sure :)

Sunday, it was up super early for the last two Easter services, lunch with my in-laws, and a long walk in the most gorgeous weather. Sunday was a super long day but it was so much fun! Paisley had way too much fun searching for eggs, opening Easter baskets and playing with her new piggy bank Grandad got her!

Reading her first Bible with Dadda

Grammy and Papa gave Paisley the cutest rabbit ever! Its like having the real thing without having to clean a cage or take care of it. It hopes and makes sounds :)

Pais looks forward to Sundays and feeding the ducks with Papa and Grammy
Great Easter weekend and I cant wait for all the fun that we will have next year!

Hope you all had a Happy Easter!

I have never enjoyed a stage more than I enjoy this one right now. You are learning every day and every moment and its so exciting to hear you saying more things and understanding things that you didn't last month. You certainly have your own personality and you don't give up if its something you want. You wear your emotions on your sleeve (moms fault for that one) and let it be known when you are happy or unhappy. You have your daddy's sense of humor and you love to hear people laugh and giggle. You have the biggest love for Harley and for duckies. You are obsessed with ducks and its so fun to watch how you light up when you see one. You would spend every waking moment outside if you could. We have lots of fun together! Summer is almost here and I cant ever imagine all the fun that we are going to have! We have lots to learn and lots to do! You are a blessing baby girl! Know that I love you the moon and back!
