When we all get together

It had been a late night before, we attended Good Friday service that included dinner, a service, communion and a baptism. After all the children were nestled all snug in their beds, the Sisters and the Hubs sat in the dark, no music or tv–just conversation. We learned a lot about each other and shared our struggles with raising kids, being married, we visited the past and shared our dreams for the future.

We really enjoyed taking the time to really celebrate why we were getting together. Remembering Christs unbelievable gift, unattainable to us. Even the kids were really affected by the thoughts of Jesus the man being nailed to a cross and Amy and I learned about the 5 th cup at the seder table. The cup of wrath, poured out on Him for us.

The morning started early, the babies watching Dora and the parents guzzling coffee. No matter how you plan or try to be ready–a house with 6 kids is wild, crazy and LOUD!  Momo and Popo are on the way and we have eggs to hunt, lunch to make and memories to make!

We are going green for this Holiday! This has been such a looong winter and we still have a dirty gray blanket of snow. We plan a casual ham luncheon with a few new homemade recipes to share.

  1. T’was a sweet time with lots of activity and noise. Thanks for doing all the work even in your conditions of a bruised brain and an ankle needing surgery. Celebrating our Lord’s Ressurrection and seeing all the grands grow to know Him are life’s greatest blessing to me!
