Friday evening, after we got home from shopping, Cale started crawling. Yes, folks, at the age of four months, my baby started crawling – up on the knees and hands. I keep trying to get it on video; but every time I grab my phone, he stops and looks to see what I am doing. I will get it eventually, and I will post the video.
Then we went to lunch at Lupe Tortilla! Yummy!
Saturday night, MiMi and Pop stayed home with the kids so that Steve and I could have a date night! Thanks, MiMi and PopPop! We had a great time! MiMi and PopPop gave Claire and Cale their Easter presents to enjoy while we were gone. Claire got two egg frames that she could color herself. (These will become a permanent part of my Easter decor.)
The Easter baskets were a huge success! Afterward, we got dressed and headed to the 8:00 a.m. service at church. Our church boasted having the “World’s Largest Easter Basket,” so we, of course, had to take our picture in front of it.
Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace He gave.
Blue is for the hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.
A handful of jelly beans – simple, colorful and sweet – reminds us of the reasons He makes our life complete!
Steve cooked up a huge Easter brunch for us, and then we got ready to go to the beach. Cale was so excited about his first trip to the beach!
MiMi and PopPop stayed over until Tuesday morning. On Monday, Claire stayed home and played with PopPop while MiMi, Cale and I hit the after-Easter sales. We found some great deals! And it was so much fun shopping with my mommy! And PopPop loves to play “princess.” With a daughter and four granddaughters, he’s very good at it.
We hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend celebrating our Risen Savior!
