He is risen!!


"On the very first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, 'Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!'" --Luke 24:1-6

I hope you are all feeling joyful on this most glorious day! Hubby and I got up early and attended the 8:00 Easter service. I told hubby the only way I could possibly get up that early was if he brought me coffee in bed, and bless his heart, he did. Last night we had lots of fun coloring Easter eggs...

{Aren't they pretty?}

{Heading out the door for church}

After church, we headed over to hubby's parents' house for an Easter breakfast. Hubby made us a yummy meal of eggs and sausage.

We were bad parents and didn't get Heaven an Easter dress or an Easter basket this year (blame it on the recession), so we're going to take her for an extra long special walk this afternoon and let her chase squirrels. We didn't buy Easter candy this year since we're trying to be healthy, but I think I might sneak off to Walgreens tomorrow and buy some Cadbury eggs on sale :)

{P.S. Yes, I did get my hair highlighted on Friday and I realize that in these pictures it looks exactly the same! For some reason my highlights are not showing up in photographs...guess they aren't dramatic enough. In real life, it's quite a noticeable difference. I ended up going with auburn highlights, so my hair is still pretty dark. I think I will go lighter next time but for now I'm loving the red!}
