This was also completely random, but my best friend text me on Monday asking if I wanted to go on a girls trip to Charleston. Umm, yeah! Before I knew it, the five of us were booked for a getaway in May. If you can’t tell, I love to travel.
2. Oh you fluffy rabbit: If you missed my post this week than you missed some adorable cuteness from my little guys and our furry live Easter rabbit friend. This has been one of my favorite traditions to do with the boys and I was really happy we were able to keep it going this year. I also got a few questions about the boys outfits so I linked some options here. I am kind of obsessed with their dress shirts that have little mini bunnies on them.
4. Did someone say chickens?: I think I’ve dropped a ton of hints around here that one day we would like to own a small farm and have chickens and animals. We’ve actually been working on this for over two years now but things aren’t necessarily going as planned with a plot of land we are working with. At this point we aren’t sure how all of this will play out. So if anyone wants to lift up a prayer, they are always appreciated.
Anyway, we took the boys to a local garden center that was having a chicken event. A is so gentle with animals and has such a love for them. They were also raffling off this state of the art amazing chicken coop. I think we probably could have moved into this thing. Not really, but it was pretty cool. A put his name in and was so sure he was going to win. They weren’t doing the drawing for a few days later so we wouldn’t know for sure. He even went home and started cleaning up the backyard because in his mind this thing was his. Unfortunately he did not win and after a few days he stopped asking about it. We probably could get some chickens now where we are at, but it’s not really ideal. I think we’ll keep that one for a long term goal.
5. Egg hunts: the snow is finally starting to melt around here and what would the Easter season be like without an egg hunt. The boys enjoyed running after the eggs and putting them into their baskets and are already asking when we’re going to the next one. We’ll also be doing one on Sunday for them in our yard and hoping the weather cooperates for us.
I hope everyone has an amazing weekend and enjoys time with your family. While we enjoy all of the festive fun that comes with this season, we remain faithful in knowing the reason why we celebrate this time of year. Nothing can compare to the ultimate sacrifice that was paid for us on Calvary.
Regardless of what you are celebrating, I hope you can feel so much love and enjoy this special time of year.
