Eggs-tra Special Fun

We've had a great Easter weekend. It started Thursday with an egg hunt and picnic at Jenna's school. Easter Sunday was a beautiful day for church and our annual egg hunt at NaNa and PaPa's. The kids all got Easter gifts. Jenna got a new Bible and the boys got money, of course. The big kids still hunt eggs because NaNa and PaPa put money in the eggs and there is always a prize egg! This year there were 4 prize eggs found by Jessica, Johnny, and Jacob. The only bad part was that Daddy had to work and we really missed him! We were so glad to have Jacob back home after a week at the beach with a friend.

Most of all, we are thankful to our Saviour Jesus for dying on the cross and raising from the grave to save us. I was especially blown away by Jenna this year and how much she knows. She commented many times about why we celebrate Easter and how it's her favorite holiday. Can't ask for more than that.

Going Organic

So I haven't blogged in a long time about the weight loss issue because, frankly, I'm tired of the roller coaster. BUT there has been some exciting things going on in this department so I wanted to take a few minutes to blog about it. (By the way, is everyone feeling like me? Like you never have time to blog anymore? Could it be Facebook or just life, or both?) back to the story. Since I went on the Daniel fast I am now more concerned with being healthy than anything. Yes, I would LOVE to drop a size or two but I'm trying to stay focused on being healthy and exercising. I am slowly making changes in my home and here's one I am very excited about. A friend told me about a company that delivers organic fruits and vegetables to your door! I'm all about that. I'm all signed up and wanted to share the web site: (for some reason, blogger won't let me share the link)

Here's to healthy eating and, hopefully, a shrinking waist! Now, if I could just give up the coke and french fries.
