We started the morning with Resurrection Cookies. We've made these the past couple of years, and it helps the little ones to really "get" what the resurrection really is. As a plus, the cookies are delicious!
Afterwards, we worshipped God with our church family. As our pastor says, every day is Resurrection Day, because we rejoice each day in our salvation. We have been going through Genesis as a church, and this Sunday, as we read chapter 49, I was amazed by God's redemptive plan throughout history. From the beginning of creation, the Bible points to Christ as the Savior of His people. Hallelujah!
We (I!!!) drove to Mamie and Big George's house for lunch with the clan. All fourteen grandchildren were there, as well as aunts, uncles, great grandparents, and friends. The house was full, and after the enormous lunch, we were too! Mamie bought a pinata for the little ones to take out their sugar high on. Everyone from James to George got to hit it before it cracked open.
Uncle Jamie and Amy made a great team.
While the children attacked the pinata, some of the adults hid eggs. The boys liked hunting for eggs, not caring that eggs bounced out of their baskets as they ran. It just made the game last longer!
Thomas went to great lengths to find his eggs.
It good to see our Birmingham cousins, Helen (above) and Philip. We hadn't seen them since late December, so we tried to maximze cousin time while they were here.
Wishing you all a joyful Resurrection Day
