Happy Easter to you all!

I have a true story to share with you about my Easter morning. As many of you know, I'm on the last 24 hours of spending a week with my god children while their parents are in Las Vegas. Nina is 10, but she seems younger. As the baby of the family, she's definitely "The Baby" if you know what I mean. Anyway, I had planned on getting to the store for treats at some point before today to have some little baskets for them on Easter morning. Needless to say, that was the one thing I just didn't get done. And when it occurred to me last night, I was far too exhausted to go out to the store again. 

Anyway, this morning I was getting ready for church with Dayna {15}, and Nina runs into the room exclaiming, "Krystle, the Easter Bunny didn't come last night!" with tears in her eyes. Then she ran away down the hall with her hands over her face. I froze and looked at Dayna. She whispered, "She still believes in the Easter Bunny." Still, I'm frozen. I hadn't had my coffee and I just couldn't think on my feet yet. I decided when Nina reentered the room I would have to break the news that there is no Easter Bunny. Good thing she has Jesus, I thought. But I wanted to cry. I just felt really awful that I would have to start the day sharing such devastating news with my sweet, innocent Nina. Then Nina comes back in laughing!! I could have died! I couldn't believe it!! She got me good. Really good! So that was how this fine day began. 

Panic over the Easter Bunny. 

How was your Easter Sunday? 
Do you have any special traditions? 
Do you not celebrate at all?

My family usually has some traditions, but this year was very different as my oldest brother is getting married in two months, so he was with his fiancée's family, and I am here with the kiddos. I took the kids to church, and then their aunt, cousins and precious grandmother came over to the house. Their grandma made an amazing Easter lunch for us and she did an egg/candy hunt with the kids. Then we all read some scripture together about Jesus' love for us. Now we are just having a chill day before I throw a "cleaning party" with the kids tonight in preparation for their parents to return home tomorrow night. Hopefully ordering a pizza for the "party" will help motivate them! 

Oh, I want to extend a huge thank you to my readers! Yes, YOU!! 
Today marks six months since I started my blog! 
Here is my very first blog post. I've come a long way and I want to thank each of you for the constant support, encouragement and inspiration! 
It has been a crazy, fun adventure so far and I am looking forward to many more!

Cheers to you!
