Friday Favorites {No. 28} Crazy, Amazing Days

Lots of pictures in this post.  Just to warn ya!

When Good Friday and Easter are piggy-backed by a two-day visit at my family's house playing Mum while my parents are away, there are bound to be lots of pictures.

Hope you enjoy!

A gift from my Mum for my house.  So simple and pretty... just the way I like things.

Good Friday and Easter Sunday services were beautiful.  Thank you for those who prayed for Andrew and me as he lead worship and we did a special song together.  Our worship team has grown just this last Sunday.  Usually it is Andrew (guitar, vocals), Linda (piano), P. Dan (conga drums), Myself (keyboard, vocals), and either one of my sisters (vocals)... NOW Jessica has joined us on violin, which was AMAZING on Sunday.  Can't wait to play with her again.

Our church building used to be a Methodist Church, so the windows are gorgeous!  Had to get a picture since this one fit Easter so perfectly.

Andrew and I were Dad and Mum this last Wednesday and Thursday while my parents went on a business trip together.  Andrew led youth group in my dad's stead; which turned out to be really fun for everyone.  So proud of my man.

While my sisters were in youth group and other younger siblings were in their Wednesday night Bible classes, I got to hang out with Bekah in the nursery.  We had so much fun!!!

I don't get the chance to be with just her very often, so we had an amazing time of puzzles, reading, and puppets.  Oh, I could just eat her up!

One of those calm moments...  :-)

Natalie straightened her hair for the first time ever!  We all decided that, while we still love her curly hair, we also adore this new look!  Nice for her to know that she has the option.
  Isn't she gorgeous?!!!

Oh, and notice that I'm not wearing shoes!  Gotta love spring!

Getting ready to risk our lives on the trampoline!

This is my family. We are crazy...   

We are weird. We do strange things. We love fun...

We do it together. And we take pictures of it all.

And we love laughing to each other when our hair is full of static electricity.  :-D

My life is so far from perfect, but I'm so thankful for the moments that make all of the hard things worth it.  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  I'm off to clean my bathroom... :-P

God bless!

LoL Looks like y'all had a great time! And Natalie is beautiful either way! What a sweetie. But many would pay a lot of money for curls like hers! Amazing that they are natural.
Wish we could hear you sing! :)
