Not so Manic Monday

Verse of the Day:
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:” - Colossians 1:27-28

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a very blessed Easter and remembered why we celebrate it! It is NOT an Easter Bunny that brings candy, but what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross and rising again 3 days later. With that being said, most of you know we don't do Santa Clause so therefore we do not do the Easter Bunny. I am sure most of you read my blog around Christmas time that explained why so I won't go back into that. 

My girls had a good Easter! Ask my 4 year old what Easter is about and what we celebrate. She will tell you Jesus and what He did for us. They still get an Easter basket they just know that Mommy and Daddy buy that candy, and guess what? They are not scarred! Imagine that??!?? And they still have their childhood in tact!! WOW ;)

Not too much going on really. FINALLY!!!! Things are starting to settle down a touch. Emma Bear has been on Spring Break since the 18th and goes back to school tomorrow. She is very much looking forward to it. DH just got back from Hawaii and I will have pics posted sometime this week. 

I guess the next thing coming up holiday wise would be Mother's Day! This one is gonna be extra hard on my Mama. She lost her Mom a little over a week ago so this will be the first Mother's Day without her. Please pray for her. I can't even begin to imagine what that must feel like. 

Me and the girls have Mommy and Me pictures coming up with the fabulous Lesley Worely Photography! They are gonna be fabulous I know. I can't wait. This will be the first session with me and the girls.  She is a fabulous photographer!

I am off for the day. This is still a vacation day for DH and Emma Bear. I am going to be posting more regularly now that things have settled down and will be doing some more reviews and hopefully giveaways. In the meantime don't forget to check out my bestie's blog, Luxury Living Frugal Style for some fantastic, deals, reviews, and giveaways!!! Have a fabulous Monday everyone! Also check out some awesome blog hops below.

Question of the Week 

Do you have any special Easter traditions?
We have 2 really. First and most important we read the story of Jesus's crucifixion and resurrection
 and 2nd we always give the girls their Easter baskets and they KNOW they are from mommy and daddy :)
