|HE IS RISEN! What a glorious day!|
We have been spending a lovely weekend as family doing a whole lot of nothing much :) We did some grocery shopping yesterday with an attempt at couponing and managed fairly well! Hoping to see some real results within the next month when we start getting coupon packs in the mail and our rewards cards begin showing some savings. I guess if we keep at it we'll start seeing huge savings within about six months. If we could just cut our grocery bill in half we'd come out on top! Anyway, it was a pretty messy day so other than grocery shop we just hung around the house. Sometimes it's really nice to just do nothing!
We had a great morning at church listening to a wonderful and emotional message from our Pastor. Our worship music was even more amazing than it usually is - the band performed all new worship songs and absolutely rocked the house!
Then we came home and had an Easter egg hunt in our front yard:

|One happy boy!|
I couldn't be more blessed than this - it makes my heart so happy to see my two favorite men so glad to be together! Of course you don't see me in any of these pics - LOL - I'm the one hiding behind the camera lens!
I'm taking a mini break from knitting for a while - I decided to finish a cross stitch project I barely started eons ago. It's a lovely angel playing a harp and I thought it would be the perfect gift for my MIL's birthday in July. This gives me lots of time to finish it up and maybe have it framed for her. No worries - she doesn't read my blog so I'm not spoiling her surprise!

I still love the beaded stars :)
I wish you all a very Happy Easter! Eat a lot, stay safe and praise the good Lord above for all your blessings!
