Happy Easter!

Today was the last of our first major holidays in Minnesota. I can honestly say it was an Easter like I've never had before. First of all, it was SNOWING today. Nothing major - just flurries, but definitely the first time that's happened to me.

We don't have any pictures from today because we ran out the door for breakfast at church this morning and didn't think about the camera until we were halfway there. Oh well. Maybe I'll get the kids all dressed up again and we'll "pretend" it's Easter another day.

After church, we spent the afternoon at some friends' for lunch and an egg hunt for the kids. It was so fun and relaxing! Our friends here have really taken us under their wings and they're always making sure we have someone to be with on holidays or any other special times. We usually end up at the farm with Britney's aunt and uncle, but we went there yesterday for lunch. So, today we were with friends! And my friend Gretchen is the best! She made homemade cheese straws because Paula Deen says that they're truly southern. Gretchen wanted to give us a little taste of home. And they were VERY good! Thanks, Gretchen!

We hope all of you had a wonderful Easter and were able to stop in all of the busyness of the day to remember what Jesus did for us!

Happy belated Resurrection Day to you, too! Glad you have a great church family and friends to fellowship with up there. It's very important to be yoked up with like minded people that can sharpen us, encourage us, and yes even make homemade cheese straws! = )

Have a great, no snow filled week, Lara!
