We have had such a fun weekend celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord! After obsessing over being number one on the list for our referral, it was great to have a weekend to truly put things back into perspective. God revealed to me that anything, ANYTHING that is put before him is an idol and I think I have been guilty of doing that over the past couple of weeks. I have really been praying that I would daily, intentionally allow Jesus to hold the preeminent place in my life. Once I do this, everything else just falls into place. So, we spent the past couple of days celebrating JESUS and the fact that He is Risen!
We started off dying a few Easter eggs
So proud of himself!
Yesterday, we headed to a local farm that had an Easter celebration event for children. We started off with a little egg hunt
Doesn’t Silas looked thrilled to have his picture taken?
He’s a little bit happier here with daddy

Some of the sheep got into the Easter Egg Dye;)
The barrel train was a hit once again. We had to do this ride twice!
Silas did a few slides on his own, and then we did this one together.
Silas was mad about something here so daddy decided to have a mad face with him; however, Silas didn’t quite see the humor in it:)
He has always loved to swing, and a horse swing was right up his alley!
Love this one! Pure joy!
We couldn’t leave without getting in a hug for the Easter Bunny!
He had to milk the cows too.
One last picture to wrap up a wonderful day. The weather was perfect, and we had wonderful family time!
This morning, Silas awoke to find this on our kitchen table. I had to chuckle because we don’t really talk about the Easter Bunny a whole lot at our house. When he saw the basket, he said “ Did the Easter thing bring me that mama?”.
He was happy!
Then it was off to church to celebrate our Risen Lord! I don’t know what I was thinking, but I didn’t get any pictures of Silas dressed up for church. Thankfully, Troy snapped one on his phone. I think he looks way to grown up here!
After church, lunch, and a nap, we headed outside to hunt for eggs.
He didn’t care to much about hunting the eggs. He just wanted to eat them. They were real, hard-boiled eggs which he loves!
During the course of the weekend, we also added another ornament to our Lent Tree. The Lent Tree was a new tradition we started this year. I learned about it at my friend Andrea Young’s blog. I have loved doing this with our family, and you can learn more about it here.
So, we had a whirlwind of a weekend, but I always love opportunities to celebrate what Jesus did for us! He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
