Almond Joy for me, please!
Our church service is pretty early, so afterwards we came home and challenged Reed in his first Easter basket hunt. Of course I went overboard and made rhyming clues for the four parts of his basket we had around the house.
I'm a poet and I know it!
Honestly, though, Giant Pants is a great book! Yes, it's about a giant who can't find his pants, but there are all kinds of mythological creatures introduced in a super-friendly way.
Spoiler alert: he eventually finds his pants in his own dresser. Because nobody saw that coming. It is hilarious every time.
Go right for the face, of course!
What you don't see is the crowd of crazy adults shamelessly yelling, making faces, shaking toys, singing, and otherwise looking like maniacs on the lawn behind the camera to get these smiles.
You only get Easter pictures once a year, after all.
That award goes to...
I'm taking notes.
The silver lining?
And a snuggly nap with Reed while everyone else ate leftovers.
That's more than a silver lining, for sure. What's a few Easter sniffles in the face of all of that?
I am so thankful for another Easter with the people I love and who love me. And most of all, sniffle, for the God who loves me, too.
