Happy Easter

jack easter 

hand sanitizer used as gel to fix wacked up hair $2

second hand outfit $4

photographer to capture this moment   PRICELESS

Last Friday was a teacher workday and I saw on Facebook (where else) that a little store was hosting a Egg Hunt with the Easter Bunny. Jack &  I went and there was a photographer, Kathryn Cook Photography  taking pics with live bunnies. Now preface the story, we have been home lounging all day,  Jack had on a very large App State shirt and crazy plaid pants, yep he dressed himself!  The store hosting the Egg Hunt is a kids consignment store and  I grabbed this outfit! $4 for khaki pants and a seersucker shirt,no joke everything was 60% off!!!

I didn’t plan it.

I wasn’t expecting anything

look what got!

This beautiful moment, captured.

 He has hand sanitizer in his hair, someone else’s clothes on his back and he is beautiful. He is a Child of God and I am so incredibly lucky to be his Mother. Truly blessed. I didn’t think there was any chance that she had captured such a “frame worthy” pic. She snapped a couple and looked at me and said” I got it”. I am sure I made a strange face and said cool!

We just need one!

Isn’t that true?

Just one. 

One moment can change everything.

A new friend, a sweet pic to share with our family on Easter Sunday!

Blessed beyond belief.

Happy Easter!

Posh Party Cakes had some really, really wonderful “projects” to do for the party! I love it! I am a huge fan of activites for the kids to do and she just gave me the best ideas! I hope I can remember this for when Jack gets older!! Melissa got geyser tubes, instant snow mix, and slime mix from Steve Spangler Science. I also love how she did the slime and the smoke coming down the cake. FUN!!

Tweetsie

Last Friday my sister, my best friend and I took our kids to Tweetsie! Dora and Diego were there and it was a super fun day! It rained 3 times, once it was a monsoon and we still had a blast!!!

If you have not been to Tweetsie I highly recommend going! Especially if you have young kids! They have an entire ride section for kids who are typically too young to ride.

They have tons of picnic tables and you can bring in your own picnic!! Or you can buy a lunchbox for $7 kids can choose from a slice of cheese pizza, pb&j or hotdog, chips, crackers or cookies and a drink. It was a great day!!
