miscellany monday

~ Hi Friends...how was your Easter?  I did my best to absorb the Truth of all that He did for me (and you!). Our pastor talked about the fact that Christ is seated at the right hand of God...SEATED.  His work is already done...what a blessing!

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2...emphasis mine)

~  The other weekend I got together with some ladies from my BSF group.  Now, those of you who know me well may or may not know that I do not have a thing for animals (gasp!).  I'm allergic to cats and just overall animals just don't do it for me.  BUT, my group member has this cutie patootie and I could have put her in my pocket and taken her home with me!
~ We are Kool-Aid drinkers.  When my aunt used to watch my kids she would make Kool-Aid and ever since then we've been hooked.  It takes me back to my childhood a little bit.  
The thing is...I like my Kool-Aid sweet!  So, if you are ever at my house and you're trying to avoid sugar or you have diabetes you might want to stay clear of the Kool-Aid :)
~ The kids had their first swim lesson this weekend and they did really well.  Caleb cried for the first two minutes, but the instructor was very patient with him and he calmed down pretty easily.  Jamison jumped right in and loved it...she even put her face in the water!
So proud of these two :)
We went to my in-laws, in-laws (are you following me?) yesterday for dinner and they had a little Easter egg hunt.  Here's my little man with his loot...why does he continue to grow?

Joining in with the wonderful Carissa today!
