Easter Sunday

Let me just brag on our baby girl...she was AMAZING the whole weekend!! We stayed with Josh's parents on Saturday night because we didn't want to have to get up at 3 or 4 to be at their church for Sunrise Sunday morning. She slept in her pack-n-play at the foot of our bed and slept wonderfully. (She officially knows when bedtime is now. When it hits 8 o'clock she starts getting sleepy because she knows it's time to start the bedtime routine.) Anyway, back to Easter weekend. Getting up for sunrise was not a big deal for us because Teagan is usually up by 6 during the week. We bundled her up in some fleece pants, a onsie, her bunny shoes and a hat and wrapperd her up in a blanket (after we got her out of the carseat...the blanket was on her in the car but she wasn't wrapped in it.) We walked to the cross and had an amazing service and she slept the whole time. I think she was lulled to sleep by the congregation singing Easter praises. After the service we all went to breakfast and she woke up a little bit to talk to all the people that passed by. After service we went back to the Reid's and she ate and slept and then we got ready for regular church service. She was a trooper! She was awake and alert and listening to the choir and Pastor John for at least 25 minutes and then she dozed off and slept the rest of the service. There were a lot of babies that were crying and wouldn't settle down and had to be taken out. We were so proud of our little girl! She was so well-behaved! After church we ate with the Reid's and then went to my parents house for our annual Easter egg hunt. It was too hot for Teagan to be out running around so she stayed inside with her Papaw. I cannot wait until next year when she is running around hunting Easter eggs!! Of course my camera battery died and so I am going to have to steal some pictures from my mom. I was so mad! But all in all we had an amazing Easter weekend!

Matthew 28:1-10
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."
