Eggs and Royals

We have had a lot going on around our house this past week.  
But we have tried to spend time focusing on the reason behind Easter this week.  We love Resurrection Eggs.  If you don't have a set - you can get them at Christian bookstores or Hobby Lobby or amazon.  They are a set of eggs and each one is a different color and has a little symbol inside that represents part of the story of Easter.  It really helps to explain to kids. 
Hollis had her three year old well child visit this week.  She was worried about getting a shot but turns out she didn't have to get any!  She is healthy and perfect and we are SO thankful.  I never take for granted health.   She was 37 lbs and 38 inches tall! She's smaller than Harper was at this age but she's still up in the 90th percentiles.  
Harper was pretending to be the doctor while we waited and was doing her own check up. 
We had Easter egg hunts at school this week.  

And we have had egg hunts around our house all week.  We should be ready to compete tomorrow! :-)
Harper got these glasses as a prize for knowing her Bible verse at church.  

I can't stop laughing at her in them.

Thursday night we had a girls night for our Sunday School class at my friend Susan's house.  She talks to us about different parts of being a Godly woman and we get to discuss and visit and eat.  Love her dearly.  And my class.
I love following Kate and William as they are traveling with little George.  I also love that they dress him in smocked and monogrammed clothes.  It's like he's Southern British. Maybe he and Hollis will marry one day.  In the meantime, I have royalty nearly daily at my house.  There is no shortage of tiaras and gowns and I love it.

Good Friday

No Show Us Your life today.

Today I just want to remember the Friday that Jesus died for me.  And You.

I can never thank Him enough for what He has done for me.

He died so that I could live.  So that you could live.

It's Friday ..... but Sunday's coming!

Happy Good Friday!

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Romans 5:8

Throw Back Thursday

Today I'm linking up with my friend Jessica for her first ever Throwback Thursday Stories Day.

So many of us do the #tbt (Throw Back thursday) pictures on Instagram or Facebook.  I love them because I can't resist posting the old awkward pictures of the past.  I love to laugh at myself.

Jessica is challenging us to not only post a picture but the story behind it.  So I thought it would be fun to join in and encourage you to do it also!!

I have a million pictures I could choose from but I laughed when I saw this and had to do it.  This is when Scott and I met Debbie Gibson at Wal-Mart.

We live in the home of Wal-Mart headquarters.  So the funny thing about little small town Bentonville, Arkansas is that we constantly have celebrities in town.  You literally never know when you might be shopping for groceries at Wal-Mart or eating downtown and you might run into Harrison Ford or Tom Cruise or Drew Barrymore (all have been here in the last year).   I worked at Wal-Mart for years and I ran into people like M C Hammer and Paula Abdual in the hallway at work just walking out to get a coke.

I think Scott and I had just gone to Wal-Mart this day and when I saw one of my old Teen Idols - I couldn't resist a picture.  This was before we were married when Scott would humor me.  He would roll his eyes at me now if I tried to make him do this. ha!

Shake your Love.  I just Can't Shake your Love.
