Easter Preperations....

"Normally," we start our celebrating 40 days ahead with a family devotional, candle lighting, Resurrection Eggs, and plenty of decorations....

Nothing happened this year. Around here, there was just alot of uneventful laundry and meals ????

One Palm Sunday we sat down and read Scripture together and talked about Jesus Procession.

Our Resurrection Egg held a donkey. We talked of the humility it brought to recognition of our Savior.

We cuddled up on the couch, under "Cowboy Blanket"

and watched this guy on TV....

my camera
was a gift. Although a very thoughtful and generous gift, it never worked very well and has helped many a "big kid" take pictures of their younger siblings. One child stepped on it, hard, last week. My husband dropped it, hard, yesterday. I took it apart with needle nose pliers AND if I play with it JUST right I can get it to work. Sometimes.

I am, not so secretly coveting this:

I DO have a birthday coming up and am trying to figure out swoopo where the 1,200 camera I want just soold for 46.00 plus the cost of bids and shipping.......I still dont have any money for it wether I can justify it or not--BUT how can we have Easter and a toddler on the hunt for eggs and a baby's first Easter without a working camera?

***If you too are curious about swoopo auctions, email me and I'll email you back a link. :)

Oh I have always loved Snoopy. My 5 year old got a stuffed Snoopy this past Christmas and he sleeps with him every night. I get such a kick out of watching my children enjoy something I grew up with.

I got my dream camera by cashing in my credit card points. I went with the Canon Digital Rebel Xsi and I just lurrve it but you will love that Nikon too, I looked at it. Those straps are a must-have!

A gal with five kiddos really deserves a fancy camera.

If I had some spare change lying around you know i'd get you a camera!
