“We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.” (Romans 6:9)
For the first time ever, Eric and I went to church. I do not go as often as I should and Eric never goes. I was so happy when he said he would go with us on Easter. A week before, he asked me if you stand or sit in church. He had no clue but I am happy he went for me! This was my first Easter without my mom but we went to church with my aunt Emogene which is her twin so that comforted me. Experiencing the first holidays after my mom passing is hard but having my "back up mom" makes things bearable.
This is the first year I didn't get a cute headband for Chloe's hair. Seems like something not worth mentioning but if you know me, you know it is a big deal finding the perfect outfit, shoes, and bow for Easter for Chloe. I decided to go with rhinestone hair pins like you see on prom hair. I did a little half up half down special occasion up-do situation. I was proud of myself because it turned out pretty good! And I found the perfect little four piece suit on Macy's website for Mason. He was as handsome as I imagined!
We decided to get Chloe a bike this year for Easter. It is a little much in my opinion for Easter but we only did it because her birthday is in winter so if we get her a bike then, she won't be able to ride it for a while. She was so excited. Mason was as excited as an almost one year old can be for Easter.
