Easter Morning

yep, we still do the Easter bunny, but we spend a lot of time talking about why we REALLY celebrate Easter. I love the video in a previous post that I found this year, it's really helped with explaining to Liam though I still don't think he truly understands.

Next year I'm hoping to make Resurrection Eggs. I had thought about this for a while, but when I came upon THIS POST this year, it was exactly what I had been wanting to do but wasn't sure how best to execute! Not enough time this year to accomplish it, but hoping to get it done for next year!

Liam was amazed that the eggs weren't in the carton any longer!

We just got our new "carpet" in the basement last night (actually bound carpet with adhered padding on the back so it didn't have to be installed, and a GREAT, AMAZING deal!), so the bunny decided to hide the eggs downstairs: perfect solution for a rainy day (though we've never hidden eggs outside!) and for a puppy who would be all over them upstairs.

They were all stumped over the egg I said I spotted on the shelves, can YOU find it!?

Each got some great things in their basket... two books, a chocolate bunny, and a few small toys.

See Liam's "How to Train Your Dragon" DVD???
Yep, he tried taking it out of the case himself and it BROKE in HALF!
I about cried! Money down the drain, even if it was a steal of a buy! :(

Our church is having family worship today and since that doesn't always work out so well for us, we're actually having church at home in a few minutes! We're going to read devotionals, sing songs, and do some role plays! They're so excited!!! Then it's off to the kitchen for me to make our dinner... sweet potato casserole, veggies, and ham!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
