Happy Easter!




The last three days have been full in every way! We are so thankful that we can celebrate what Jesus did for us.....that we have a HOPE and a future in heaven! Chris and I had an awesome time today with our friends Paige and Zack. We were able to just talk about life, the Lord, and have fun together!! Chris and I have a tradition every year (that is semi-cheesy....but we love it).....called "Resurrection Egggs". We go around the table after Easter dinner....and each egg has part of Christ's death and resurrection. It is so good to be reminded of what he did for us. Thank you Lord!!

On a completely different note, AMAZING SUGGESTIONS ON THE LAST POST!!!! We are pretty much all packed up and ready to go. We leave in TWO DAYS!!!! I can't wait. Eliana, get ready.....we are going to have some fun!

Love you all,
Lindsey

P.S. We went to "Build a Bear" (thanks Doug & Courtney) and created this cute bunny rabbit for Eliana. It has our voices in it telling her how much we love her and miss her!!! What a fun place....I think Chris had more fun than some of the kids in the store!

I am not the only one who likes Domino's in Antigua...I always wondered if I just imagined how good it was. :) Anyway, happy Easter! The bunny is adorable. I love the idea that your voice is in it. Yes, Build a Bear is dangerous...too much cute stuff to choose from!

Love the Bunny! We also did a Build-A-Bear for our oldest when we went to visit her...with us telling her that we loved her and singing "You are our Sunshine"...she still loves it to this day (2.5 years later)! Someone had told us to think of all the senses (blanket with our scent, bear with our voice, baby album to SEE us, etc.- of course, we couldn't think of one for taste!?!?) I know you guys are excited...can wait to see pictures!! :)

The bunny is so cute! Eliana is going to love it!

Can you tell more about the "resurection eggs" and what you do? It sounds like a great tradition.

I am so excited that you leave in 2 days!!!

Love the bunny, we made a bear. So much fun!

Love the Resurrection Eggs too! Can't wait to see pictures from Guatemala. Be careful with Build A Bear. It's addicting and will be a favorite of Eliana's! Good thing they do coupons! :)

I just wanted to introduce myself. My husband and I are adopting from Guatemala also. We are currently on postponement though since the country closed. I found your site as I was searching for the perfect piece of jewelry to signify our journey. I found Junk Posse and the link to your blog. Looks like a very exciting time for you. I will buy a piece of jewelry when I can decide on which one, I love so many of them. Congratulations on your trip.

Love the bunny! WE did the same thing in February. Wonderful that she will have your voices at the touch of a button. So excited for your visit trip, you are covered in prayer, receive all God has planned for you. Blessings, Susie
