Happy Resurrection Day!

Isaiah 53:5  "He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our inequities, the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed."  

I'm so thankful for Jesus and His unfailing love for me.  I'm thankful for second chances, I'm thankful that I'm a new creation --there's just so much that I'm thankful for.

 I love the song "Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe, sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.  O Praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead."  

Mark 16:6  "He is not here.  He is risen!"  

1 John 3:16  "This is how we know what love is:  Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.  And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters."  

Happy Resurrection Day!

Nana Visit

My Mom came down this week for a visit.  Sadly my Dad had to work, so he wasn't able to come.  We had the Best time!  We played, shopped, ate, and colored Easter eggs.  Hudson didn't have a clue what was going on, but enjoyed dropping the eggs in the cups.

Showing off all the pretty eggs
Hudson gave my Mom lots and lots of kisses and hugs
Hudson had a great time with his Nana!  
I wish I had taken more pictures.  I didn't have my camera out at all until my Mom was ready to leave.  It was really hard saying goodbye and watching her leave.   It was so...good having her here.

St. Patrick's Day - just before leaving for church
Sweet Kisses from Hudson
Last weekend Brian's parents came down for the weekend.  Brian's Dad helped Brian lay hardwood flooring.  They brought Hudson a pair of sunglasses.  Here is Mr. Cool Dude.
They also brought him a fun puzzle and a cool spinning toy
The weather was decent so Mary and I took Hudson on a walk.
The new flooring in our breakfast nook - Hudson loved helping clean up.  
We had such a great visit with Brian's parents!  It's always so good seeing family.  Of course, Hudson loves all the extra special attention, as well.   I'm so thankful that Brian and his Dad are such great carpenters/handymen.

Easter Egg Hunt

Today our church had its annual Easter Egg Hunt.  We signed Hudson up for it not knowing if he'd like it or know what to do.  Much to our surprise, he had a great time!  Hudson was excited to check everything out.
Brian teaching Hudson what to do.
Hudson quickly picked up the idea
Racing for the pink egg
His basket got so full, I had to help him out a little

Two little love birds- Alex and Madison
  We tried getting a picture of the three kids, but that was pretty difficult.
  We couldn't get a single kid to look at us

Somebody's eggs got spilled and they were all busy helping pick them back up.
Hudson checking out his big score
  Man on a mission
Hudson walked right up to the Easter Egg Bunny! 
He even let him pick him up.
We tried to get all 3 kids to pose with the bunnies, but Madison wasn't having it, so Kristin had to pose with them. 
We had such a great time!  
My two favorite guys! -- I love Hudson's Easter outfit! 
This picture really shows Hudson's personality -he's wild and busy!  I'm not sure what I am doing.
Hudson loves the glider!  He was too obsessed with it to look up and smile for a picture.

I have been  in a blogging funk lately, plus since it's winter so things aren't too exciting -we do the same things day after day.  

Last week Hudson tripped and hit his head and he ended up with a big goose egg.  Poor guy handled it well and didn't cry much.  Sadly, this was the best picture  I got of him.

I think little boys in bibs is just about the cutest thing in the world.

Sunday was almost 70 degrees so we went on a long walk along Lexington's Legacy Trail.  We passed hundreds of bikers and walkers. - this is the start of the trail.
Hudson loved this tall grass
