Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter from our home to yours....
....and a little "Good Friday" story. Friday evening we entered church and the atmosphere was quiet and reverent as you would expect at a Good Friday service, until our little Mr. Luke enters the scene. It took Luke 2 seconds to see that there were two crosses that had been placed up on either side of the sanctuary...with the intent for people to write any prayers, or burdens, or particular sin they struggle with on a designated paper and to nail it to the cross. Luke quickly wrote one out (asking God to watch over his little brother Reid and his heart...I just love this kid!!). Toby walked him up to a cross and I was not paying much attention to where they were in line, I was just enjoying the quiet, almost still environment except for the melodic tap, tap, tap of the hammers...until I heard the loudest...WHAP, WHAP, WHAP.... and giggles from some of the church members. Oh yes, I did not even need to look up to know that that was my "do everything with 120% might and ferver Luke"...including nailing a prayer to a cross in church. Sigh... :)

Glad to see we're not the only ones who let their little one out in their pj/s on Easter morning! Man! Luke looks like he has grown. What a sweetheart he is. Addie wanted us to keep hiding the eggs over and over again. ;)
