“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

Easter Celebration

Two cute kids in matching outfits. You can bet that if I had two little girls they would have had matching dresses, but since #2 is a boy, I had to go with a vest instead...

We celebrated Easter by having friends over for dinner after church. It was a delicious and laughter-filled event. We had marionberry pie (now on Leah's dress) and strawberry shortcake, then had an overdose of Easter candy during the Easter egg hunt. Then we finally got to see Enchanted, and it was super cute. We let Leah stay up late with us to watch the movie--she was extremely hyper and was climbing all over Dad when she fell on her face and cut her lip yet again. *sigh* Overall, it was a good day.

Here is Leah trekking down to the basement with the expectation of an Easter egg hunt. She had no idea what we were talking about but sensed our excitement and heard the mention of candy. She didn't really get the concept of "find all the eggs as fast as you can and put them in this bucket" because every time she found an egg she wanted to open it up and eat whatever was inside!
