Happy Easter Loves!

Jamie and I are still trying to wind down from the whirlwind also known as Comic Con Fan X. It was a blast! We will be posting all about it starting the first of the week. 

Easter is my favorite time of year to dress my kids. There is nothing like seeing them in their Sunday best! And yes I am THAT Mom. The OCD in me comforted in seeing all my kids in matching outfits. It is what it is… I gave you a sneak peak of the little Babe's Easter outfit on IG. Here are all three in their entirety.

Happy Easter babes!  Now back to Sheena.

In all the hustle and bustle of Holidays nowadays.. It is easy to forget what we are really celebrating. While I do love a good shopping session for my kids. Tonight while I tucked them into bed I cuddled in next to my boys and grabbed a special book. A book about Christ's Resurrection written for children. As I read to them the true reason for celebration I was getting asked questions like-
What is that stuff in the cups?
Why did they want to kill him?
Why is Mary crying?
Mom, Can Jesus only fly in clouds?
While some questions a little more heavy than others, all were important. They were thinking about their savior and thats all I could ask for on the Eve of Easter Sunday. Because of HIM, I feel the pain as Mary is searching for her beloved. Because of HIM, I rejoice with the Apostles as they spot him on the shore. Because of HIM, I am comforted in the fact that I can return to my heavenly Father just as Christ did. Because of HIM, I have a beautiful family and children that restore my faith everyday.
While I closed the book and kissed them goodnight my littlest man calls to me-
"MOM! We need to say a prayer!"
My oldest says-
"Oh Yah! Why didn't I think of that?"
And when I asked who wanted to say it they BOTH jumped at the opportunity. 
We had two prayers tonight.
And many more answered.

Happy Easter loves.
