On Good Friday I decided to break out the egg dye for a little fun with Victoria. She thought it was super fun! So much so, that she kept trying to drink the dye and managed to crack 3 of the eggs before we could get them into the dye. (Apparently hard-boiled eggs crack quite easily)
We shared this photo via texts and Facebook to make our twins public, and it was fun and heartwarming to see all the responses of excitement and support.
I also put together a small easter egg hunt for her in our back yard. Daddy took her around and she quickly figured out the rules of the game.
Oops. No I didn't.
And by the time I realized I hadn't taken a photo, Victoria was already out of her dress and down for a nap. Oh well. Sometimes things just don't turn out the way you want them too. But take my word for it that she was adorable.
I woke up Easter with a terrible headache and fought it all day. That on top of the tail endings of morning sickness that are still plaguing me, I was not having the best of days. The later it got in the day, the worse I felt.
Then in the afternoon I was talking with my neighbor and mentioned I was not doing so great at planning our day and needed to go inside to plan something for dinner. 5 minutes later she was knocking on my front door. She brought me extra food that she had made for her family including a big container of yummy ham, cheesy potatoes, and homemade cheesecake. It really was one of the sweetest things someone has ever done for me. Our neighbors are a beautiful big Christian family, and somehow the Lord pricked her heart to help me out today. I almost burst into tears right there at the door. And while healthy, normal-feeling Amy would probably have felt guilty for not cooking a big, delicious meal for my family, nauseous head-pounding Amy was overwhelmingly grateful for the help.
I hope you all had a beautiful weekend with your families, celebrating the beauty in the sacrifice the Lord made for us so that we may be made whole in His eyes. What a savior!
