Resurrection Day 2014

I wanted to get some photos before we left the house this morning. Fancy outfits were easy this year - not that we usually do them - but THIS year I told the kids, "Pick one of your wedding outfits." 

While Michael finished getting ready, I grabbed a few shots. Unfortunately, Stacia insisted she could not open her eyes outside...this is the best shot...though I have lots of blackmail material for her future life. 

I figured out the self-timer and grabbed this one inside....

Michael joined us for a shot. 

Of course there are many fun outtakes. 

The kids put on a great skit this a.m. at Chapel. Arielle was the voice of Mary Magdalene....and Stacia was Mary Magdalene, Zander was the disciple John, Nolan was Jesus.....and we had angels, disciples and crowds. They all did a great job. 

Niki loves to speak Japanese with us...and these two speak some each week. This soothes deep places in my heart...and I think it does the same for Niki. 

After chapel we grabbed lunch. It was Nolan's week to pick and he chose Subway down on Plumas Street. There was a big greed fest Easter Egg Hunt going on across the street which was interesting to watch. 

We watched Heaven Is Real - good movie - then came home and watched a Jerry Lewis movie. Movies are about all we had energy left for after the busy week. 

We Skyped with BreZaak again tonight - great way to end the day or begin a new week! So happy about the scholarships Izaak pulled down for his last semester of Bible College. 

Choosing Joy!
