Easter 2014

Our Easter went by so fast. I see a trend here.... these years of my kids being little are just flying.

 (Tagg's FIRST Easter)

We didn't get Easter eggs colored, or even a family picture of the five of us.... but we spent the day in Church and with family- both things that are hard to beat.

The cantata that our Church Choir performed yesterday was, by far, my favorite book we've done. Resurrection Sunday is so powerful itself, but singing amazing songs to a worthy Savior is humbling.

(The Easter book we sang from was 'The Day He Wore My Crown' arranged by Russell Mauldin.)

I'm thankful for all the practices we did and for needing to pay attention to the part I was singing, otherwise, I would have been a sobbing mess on stage. The words of these songs were so powerful.
My favorite song was Man of Sorrows. It was the song my husband did as his solo. If you'd like to listen to it, you can here: Man of Sorrows.

I hope you had a fabulous Easter Sunday.
Spending time with family, making memories and
remembering the SAVING end of Jesus Christ's death.

"Sent of Heaven, God's own Son, to purchase and redeem. And reconcile the very ones who nailed Him to that tree.
Oh that rugged cross, my salvation, where Your love poured out over me, now my soul cries out Hallelujah! Praise and honor unto Thee."

Easy Lemon Asparagus

Do you need a new side dish to throw into your dinner rotation?
Well, Lemon Asparagus is just about the easiest side dish I've ever made.
It's refreshing and yummy.
(Even my 4 year old gets excited when I make this!)

-Trim your asparagus and line them up on a baking sheet.
-Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and gently roll to coat.
-Squeeze one half of a lemon over the asparagus. 
-Slice the other half of the lemon. Line the lemon slices on top of your asparagus with 3 Tablespoons of sliced butter.
-Bake at 400* for 12-18 minutes or until cooked as you like them!
