A Blessed Day~

Unfortunately, we were not all able to attend church today. The tummy bug is still making it's rounds. So, Jim took the older 6 with him to church.

They had to leave at 6:15 a.m. as Jim was working the Prayer Line today, so no lovely outside Easter Pics..just quick in the foyer at before the sun is up pics..

..Our poor 13 yo is still sleeping..

They had such a busy morning.

They attended the 8:30 service, headed to Sunday School afterwards, and then taught the 5 yos for the 10:45 service. It's such a blessing to serve together as a family.

I was home with the two 5 yos, the 3 yo, the Wee Boy, and Sweet Pea..

It reminded me of the days when we had 5 under 7... Those of you with littles and no older children hang in there, it does get easier! Our 5 yos were a great help. They felt like such BIG BOYS being the oldest children.

The Wee Boy after his incident with the water cooler...Or how he "helped" Mama mop the floor :o). He is so cute.

The rest of the day we hung out and played. I took the well ones on a long bike ride, and later Daddy played football with the children... we ended the night with homemade ice cream....AND
A dance from Sweet Pea...

Blessed Times~

What wonderful pictures! Looks like a great day despite some ickies still floating around. Homemade icecream is always a GREAT way to end a day!

I can't believe how big "sweet pea" is now! Wasn't she just a tiny baby the other day?

The girls are beautiful reflections of their Mama, and the boys are just as handsome as their Daddy!

What a sweet Easter morning...

You are a fantastic Mama!
