The Saturday 7

1. A huge storm blew through here last Saturday. I've already written about it in this post, but wanted to record it here as well. As a result, we lost power for 3 days. We packed up and moved in with Justin's parents in the interim. We're so grateful to have family willing and able to take us in at the drop of a hat.

2. One night while were at Justin's parents', I heard Lena crying in the middle of the night. I stumbled down the hall to get her and heard Lucy singing softly from her place on the floor next to Lena's crib, "Jesus loves me this I know . . ." So precious!

3. Lucy's actually been full of it this week. One day we were in the car and she randomly asked, "Mommy, how did Lena get out of your belly?" I told her that the doctor helped me get her out, but she said, "No, like how?" I tried again to tell her that the doctor just knows what to do, but Lucy wouldn't buy that. Haha. She asked "Did the doctor cut your belly open to get her out?" Oh, how I wished I'd had a c-section. Haha. I finally explained it to her, and she accepted it without a further question!

4. While we were at the VanderKoddes' I felt like all Lucy was doing was watching cable TV. So we went and bought a couple new workbooks for her to work on. One of them asked her to draw a picture of herself. This is what she drew:

I asked her what the two circles above her belly were and she lifted up her shirt to show me her nipples. Haha. Glad we're doing anatomically correct drawings!

5. I didn't read very many articles this week. But this one from my pastor about hypocrisy was so great. He shows why writing off Christianity because of hypocrites is a flimsy excuse.

6. Good news everyone. I'm finally joining the modern era and getting a smartphone!! My sister kicked me off her family plan so it was time to find a new one. Fortunately, my awesome friend Rachel hooked me up with an amazing phone plan. Republic Wireless works with your wireless Internet, which allows them to lower prices. For $10 a month I'll have unlimited talk and text, and unlimited data as long as I'm in a wireless area. I won't have data when I'm not in a wireless area, but I almost never use the data on my phone now, and I'm almost always home anyway! The only catch is you have to buy their smartphone. But they just came out with a brand new one that's only $150. It came out on Thursday, but it's going to be a few weeks before I have it in my possession. I'll let you all know how it works! I can't wait to be "smart" like the rest of you! P.S. If you're interested in the plan, use my referral link to get $20 off your first bill - and get me $20 off my bill too!

7. We did pretty well with our Easter activities this week. We didn't end up making the Easter Garden because I didn't realize how much grass seed cost. Haha. But we did "egg" our friends:
I put the eggs in a bucket instead of hiding them in the recipients' yards because both of our friends have dogs who would be thrilled to help themselves to the eggs. Haha.

We also made a sign to put in our window:
Lucy was not very interested in helping me color it. I pretty much did this project by myself. Haha.
We did an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt.

We even got Egged by Aunt Niki!

Tonight we'll do the Easter Rocks project and tomorrow morning we'll make Resurrection Rolls. And then we'll really be ready to celebrate Easter! I hope you all have a great holiday. He is Risen!!
