And then we took off for Good Friday and went to the zoo with Abbie's crew. It was a gorgeous day, and before we went in I had to record this sweet memory:
Oh my goodness, this was only six years ago:
Babies grow up way too fast. I never really believed all those sweet older ladies who told me they would, but I do now.
Speaking of growing up fast- these little twin cuties are starting to talk and run around:
Two little ones in the stroller, one at home here = still lots of little people all around. :D I think we're so used to our clans, we don't realize how many people do life with us until we see a pic. :D
The outlet is across the street from the factory, which means we get to try all kinds of breads we've never seen before- like this pull apart bread we were excited to find:
We took communion at church yesterday, and for some reason, instead of feeling sobered by it like I normally feel, I was just so happy. Jesus died and rose again for ME! I realized as we were singing yesterday that Jesus said to me, "Mandy, come forth!" And I did. I am alive because of Him!! He called me and brought me out of death and into life. It's too incredible to even understand.
He lives, and because He lives I get to be with Him. Nothing is impossible for the Lord.
It's only Monday, but it's already a good week. :)
How was your Easter weekend?
Did you enjoy good food and fellowship in celebration of what Christ did?
Did you have cake too? :P Do you have a great recipe for Tres Leches I could try?
