We had a fantastic Easter. We are finally settling into our new church and really enjoyed Easter morning celebrating with our new church family. (His Place in Burlington) It has been hard after all those years at Cornwall to find a new Church. But I am finally feeling like we have found our family church where we are and will always be Joe, Amy, Isabelle, Ethan, and Jack... No strange looks, like "who's that?!" After church we headed out to Lynden for the annual Easter Egg hunt and then home for tacos.
I am grateful for all God has done for me, honestly really overwhelmed this Easter season. As if dieing on the cross was not enough, God took a broken family and made us whole again. He has Risen and is working miracles in our lives!
The girls... Isabelle signs to go see Emily everyday when see gets home from school...cute.
I am so happy for Jack... Today after two years of standing on Ethan's sidelines it was finally his turn! Jack's first soccer practice was the best! I love to watch kindergarten soccer! Jackers had this smile the whole practice. I can't wait until Saturday for his first game. Bring on the Lakeside Jersey!
We had a fun time having our pictures taken. I had to get used to being the one in front of the camera instead of behind it! We secured our plane tickets today so we are as good as in San Diego! I can't wait, four weeks from Monday and we will be on our way. I have started working from 8:30 to 2:30 at Cafe Caffe' so my days are passing quickly by! I have been using every spare moment and day off to try and pull this all together. Last Wednesday Christine and I found my wedding dress. Because I put it off for so long I thought we would find a pretty one but we found the PERFECT one, I love it! So with plane tickets and a dress we are almost set! Oh yeah, rental cars, hotel rooms, flowers, chairs for the beach, cakes, decorations, dinner reservations for reception, pants for Joe and the boys, hair appointments, tulle for bows, shoes for all.... Mmmm back to planning..... Enjoy the photos!
These arrived in the mail today. Wow, this big ol' life changing event is coming up quick! The plans are coming along although to say the wedding is next month is a bit shocking! So much to do so little time! I am excited for the trip and for the wedding ceremony but I am really excited to come home and be married. To just settle in as husband and wife (and the other three we hang out with :) and just be!
