We had a blast on Easter weekend! It was filled with lots of to do’s, but my absolute favorite part were the church services we attended where we celebrated our Savior!DSC_0194

Hudson LOVED coloring the eggs. He thought that was really fun! He was a pro too!


These were colored with Kool-aid, we only had time for 2 before we headed off to hunt eggs!

He had fun finding the eggs, but he had gotten eggs earlier from his Grandma so he knew what this was about-candy. Once he got his first one open it was all over. Get them in my mouth!

After the egg hunt we put dinner in the crockpot (it definitely worth trying, thanks Pinterest!) and had nap time. Then we headed to for their Easter celebration! The church service was incredible and they had this cute little photo booth set up! Hudson had gotten a sucker so he didn’t really care to smile, he just wanted it open!


Hudson was so excited for Sunday because that was the day that “daddy play mumet” aka his daddy would play trumpet at church. He really doesn’t know about his daddy playing trumpet, because he never sees him (Ryan doesn’t play much anymore) and can’t remember a time when he did.

He sat like this and didn’t move for the longest time. He also got to see Uncle Hat play trumpet and he normally plays guitar so he was just completely in awe. He has been so into music over his lifetime (he comes by it naturally), but has really been obsessed with instruments the past several months. He hardly moved the whole music service because he was watching so intently. Every Sunday he makes sure that we are going to see hat and Nick play guitar. We also pray for their guitars EVERY night and we have now added daddy’s trumpet to the list.

I am so thankful that our sins are washed away and we can live free because of God’s great plan to send his son to earth! We are blessed!


We tried to keep Hudson’s Easter basket simple and not make a big deal out of it, it’s really not what this whole thing is about anyway. We picked up a few things at the Disney outlet in Branson last month so he received that and a few train things since that is his most recent favorite. We took him to Barnes and Noble to pick out a book for his basket. We walked around for a while and I would show him book and he would look at them and put them back. He finally came across a train book that made noises and he was set, we weren’t leaving the store without it (and without hearing it toot five million times!).


Thanks to a few Target trains and a Eric Carle book/plush from Mae Mae he was set! He really enjoyed his basket and didn’t ever figure out that all of the candy he found at the hunt was hidden under the grass! More for his daddy and I (Kidding)!

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

John 16:33

Aren’t you thankful that Jesus overcame the world just for us?!
