We are rapidly approaching Easter. I’m so excited. You all already know how much this holiday means to me. It’s more than a holiday. It’s a relationship, a celebration of Jesus. We know that He is the reason for the season and are more than grateful that He loved us so much that He died and rose again for us. It’s a joy my family shares.

Still, I am also aware that children like an opportunity to share in some of the holiday activities they see their peers participating in. My children are no different. I decided, when Bug was still very young and it was just the two of us that I would create Easter Baskets that speak to faith and allow him the childhood memories of Easter baskets just like my family did with me. They were a great hit.  I now do the the same with my Honeybee and am looking forward to being able to include baby A. in her first Easter.

Easter Recap 2017

Hello everyone! I hope you all had an amazing Easter holiday. I really enjoyed just spending time with the family and celebration the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. On Saturday morning, I woke early to help fill and hide Easter eggs for the church-sponsored hunt. There were so many eggs! We stuffed quite a few, ran out of filling for some, but still had a great time. S. took our eldest with him early that AM to help one of our members move and they were finished early enough to come out, help, and enjoy.

Eggs for days

Happy Resurrection Sunday

                            THE SAVIOR LIVES!!

As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.  6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ”

The Easter Edition 2015

Yep, we are more than a little late for this post.  Things have been a bit hectic and we'll explain in a follow-on post.  In the mean time, please enjoy our Easter Edition of So Frequently Frazzled.

The Weekend Recap: The return of Spring

I suppose it is official.  Spring is here!  Never mind the calendar date for Spring was actually a few days ago, the weather here has not cooperated with the status quo much at all.  We had one day of 70+ degree temperatures, another of high 50s, then flurries in the morning followed with rain all day long. So, it took me a bit of time to get excited about the season's arrival.  This weekend has definitely helped.

Friday afternoon, I came home and instead of heading directly to the kitchen, I went upstairs and chatted with Superbug.  I wanted to just sit down and pick his brain about a how life is in his 8 year-old world.  We must have talked about 40 minutes.  He told me about how much he is looking forward to the spring and how he wanted to start taking daily walks, have me help him with some of his pitches and catches, and how he wanted to start helping me cook dinner in the kitchen.  Then we discussed what he'd like to see in his lunch box :)  My son loves to eat lol.  It was a great conversation and served as the perfect segue to eating dinner.
