What To Do with All the Extra Peeps?

I hope everyone had a blessed Easter.  Our life has been so full and busy lately, so we really enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on the hope we have in our risen Savior.  Yesterday, in addition to our regular Sunday Service, we had a group of interns over for Easter supper (one of our annual traditions since we got married), and we also had a good bit of fun with Bella. She is just getting to an age where she really enjoys holiday fun.

And so, Bella participated in her first official Easter egg hunt, city style!  We have a small back porch with four planters.  I mean, what more could you need?


And in case you really want to feel like you were there:

Then we turned to breakfast and a few gifts from loved ones...
 ... including a gift from Bella's great grandmother, Memaw.  Oh, the magic of tissue paper!

Bella digs plastic grass.
And don't forget the family Easter pic!  A-hem, Bella, can you please put the candy down for one second?

Okay, this one will have to do.

And before I leave you, I want to let you in on a new tradition that began this past weekend.  On Friday night, we were introduced by some dear friends to the sport of Peep Jousting.  My husband happens to be a huge fan of Peeps. Yes, I know. Gross.  Close friends and family all know this fun fact about him and quickly grab $.99 boxes of Peeps when they come out at Easter just to witness the smile that appears on his face.  Needless to say, we always have a surplus of Peeps.  So what is one to do?
Peep Joust.  That's right, you heard me...

Of all the meaningful and pious traditions out there, I think this one will be joining us next year.
(By the way, we had better success with our jousting matches on defrost... you know, just in case you have an itch to try.)

Happy Easter!

    Food Matters is definitely an eighty minute documentary
    that actually opens up eyes as for the hazards to overall health when eating anything from a
    box, jar or can. The "health care" method just isn't correct health care it really is a "sick care" technique. Overall health care starts by what meals selections we eat. These on restricted budgets can simply consume extremely healthful if they understand what wild crops are edible... and there are numerous. Several of those are in fact considerably healthier than produce discovered inside a standard grocery shop. The most effective a part of all they are Totally free.

    Thanks for these pointers. One factor I additionally think
    is that often credit cards presenting a 0% interest often attract consumers together with zero interest,
    instant acceptance and easy online balance transfers, however beware
    on the real factor which will possibly void that
    0% easy road annual percentage rate and also throw anybody out into the
    extremely poor house in no time.
