THE REMAINS OF THE DAY…

Our Easter recap and pictures…

Our church had a sunrise service, breakfast, and worship service today.  It was a different way of doing things at our church, and I liked it.  Our service was Spirit filled.  The music was stirring and our new pastor challenged us all!     God is blessing our church.  We all had plenty of time to spend with family, sit and talk and eat at the table, and hunt and re-hunt those eggs.  We all went to Pop’s for lunch…with Joy handling the cooking duties.  She does such a great job.  We visited, watched JT hunt eggs and snapped a few pics.  Sadly, sweet Alex could not get out today, so he missed the fun and fellowship.  It’s just never completely right when he is not with us. 

Then, Ian, Don and I went over to Adam and Suzanne’s to see them and sweet little Levi.  They are having to keep him in for 2 months so his lungs can get fully healed and ready to take on this big, beautiful world.  Of course, we made more pics there.  And, I got in a good rocking  with Levi in the same rocker I rocked all my babies in!  Oh, it is just as sweet as everyone says it is!  Such a wonderful blessing!

And, I am now in my pajamas, feet elevated, diet dr.pepper next to me.  And, here I intend to stay till morning.  Except when I have to take ‘ole Finn out.  Here are some of the pics of today…I think they speak for themselves….

 A wonderful day, full of worship and blessings and love.  Hope yours was as well.

I promised to get a picture of the cousins to compare with the one I showed you yesterday. They didn’t fight me too bad today…even though they would have been just as happy if I had not even said the word ‘picture’! So here they are…in the same order they were in the first pic.

And, since my name is “MUD” for showing you the cute Easter picture from their childhood….I’ll just show you another picture where their names were “MUD”!

This is one of my most favorite pictures of them. We had travelled to NC to visit our family. They were sort of bored…what with them being ‘city kids’ and all. So, someone had the bright idea to turn the waterhose on in Aunt Marie’s driveway. Well, it didn’t take long until they were covered in mud…every one of them…and every inch of them. They had the time of their lives! And, none of them had ever been that dirty before. Probably not since, either! I remember my Granny Merritt kept telling us that they were going to get ‘ground itch’. I don’t know if they did or not…but they wanted a repeat mud hole the next day. They didn’t get it though! I remember how we sprayed them off with the hose while they were still outside. And, after the girls had gone inside to the tub, the boys got soaped down, shampooed, and sprayed off outside. They didn’t think it was possible to get a bath outside. That was another thing they learned that day!

I’m sure my family in NC knows just where this photo was taken…and may even remember this day! A big Easter (((HUG))) goes out to them!

A better report on our Easter day to follow.

EASTER FAMILY ALBUM

At the risk of having you laugh at my atrocious taste in glasses…here are some old pics of Easters past…

A studio in Dothan was making pictures in the park on Easter Sunday, so off we went, and smiled for the camera!

A few years later…Adam was so happy to be called upon to pose with his Mother and his brothers…can’t you see the joy in his face?

With Granny, after Easter lunch…

Acting silly with Grandma, after another Easter lunch…

And, here’s the cousins…Uh! Oh! Looks like Adam’s attitude has affected Alex…

All the cousins will be eating with me tomorrow…I’m gonna give them another chance to make a good picture! We’ll see…

Here’s hoping your Easter pictures show the love you have for one another!
