What a wonderful Easter we had today!
We got up and got to church this morning at 7:35am (I know, amazing!) But we knew that we wouldn't get a seat if we didn't get there early enough. We've started going to a new church and the preacher is amazing so people flock to hear him speak. They had a line out the door and into the parking lot and were turning people away at 7:55am. The message was awesome. He preached on Colossians 1:15-23 focusing mainly on verses 21-23. The message really hit home for us - it was a great start to our Easter Day.
After church we came home to continue cooking the brisket that Ryan cooked for 5 hours yesterday. He wanted to try out his new smoker. Everyone got here around 11:30am and we ate soon after. Brisket, broccoli, potatoes au gratin, salad, bread, and dessert.
After brunch we went outside so the kids could do their Easter egg hunt and then we broke Mexican confetti filled Easter eggs all over each other! The kids then went through their eggs to see what goodies they had gotten (mini M&Ms, Hershey's Kisses, Dinosaur bouncy balls, sidewalk chalk and money) and then we all came in and rested. We were full and happy!
