Spring has been so beautiful. It has been nice to get outside and enjoy all the flowers in bloom. The downside however has been all of the pollen.
For the first time I am taking Zyrtec every day. I have never experienced allergies before. It's rough! Both Elena and Allee were also prescribed a daily dose of Zyrtec. Our pediatrician told us that this spring was expected to be quick blooming and very intense for allergies. Both the girls feel so much better now!
Easter was great. We had a very nice cantata last Sunday and a good service this Sunday to celebrate. It's been nice to be a part of this church. I was able to do the children's moment at the beginning of our service. During the church greeting all the kids sit on the stage with an adult. That adult presents a small story or object lesson and then prays.
I used this and explained how Jesus rose from the dead. It was really cute.
During the Easter service I stayed with the kids. There was probably about 15 of them and we enjoyed ourselves talking about what Easter means to us and what gives us HOPE with Jesus rising from the dead.
After that, we officially joined our church. We stood up in front of the congregation and they all affirmed our being members.
We headed home and made Easter dinner. My mom, grandmother and I worked in the kitchen together. It's been really nice to have them around. I have enjoyed it so much!!
Oh!! I dressed up as the Easter bunny. Two parties this past week my friend let me borrow a suit that I used. It was pretty funny! We really aren't Easter bunny people and have never taught our kids that he's real, but it was fun to dress up and watch little kids either be freaked out or totally embrace this large bunny!
We also had an Easter party. I never did get to take any pictures of the party while it was going on, but here are some before.
(Thats my mom.)
Here are a couple pictures of Elena at the pediatrician this past week.
Elena was SO WIGGLY during the blood pressure part that the pediatrician wound up having to do it manually. Lol.
On another note;
I made BIG MAC SAUCE!
Ok.... I know that this isn't a big deal to most, but I have always loved the sauce. I refuse however to go to McDonald's.
Now I keep a couple of small mason jars in my fridge at all times for sandwiches or burgers!!
Its my indulgence!
Just mix the ingredients in a bowl. Enjoy!
Well, better get back to homeschooling Elena. She's very distracted.
