Rejoice!

We attend (and are proud members of) Oconee Street Methodist Church in Athens (on the East side, on the hill across from Mama's Boy).  We love our church for lots of reasons. Chris was born into this church and when we were looking for a church to attend as a family (because it is kind of far from us) nothing else really seemed to compare.  It is a smaller church - only about 125 members - and we love that.  We also love the choir.  It is such a huge part of our service every week and I can't imagine a better way to kick off an Easter worship service....




Yes, I was that girl, with my phone out, videoing something that I probably shouldn't have been.  I'm not sure what the social grace standard is for making a video in church.  Regardless, as soon as I saw that Arvin's bongo was out, I knew that I had to share this with people (that and Frankie said she was taping today too, so that kind of felt like a green light to me).  (But excuse the quality...it was taking for-ever to load, so I resized things and well, you know, you should be paying attention to the audio anyway.  :) )

This wasn't the whole song, but I felt like it was shakey and I just wasn't all that sure that people weren't thinking that I was crazy.  I wish I would have taped Amanda singing with Neal later in the service, but I just didn't.

I tried to get the kids to take a nice picture for me as we were going into church this morning.  It is near impossible to get all three of them to look at me at the same time.  Just sayin.

By the end of the picture taking Quinn was trying to lift up his shirt...as you can see in the large picture.  That was, you know, kind of awesome.  

After church we had an egg hunt (one for kids, one for adults...I scored a $5 egg!) and lunch at Chris's parents' house.  It was delicious, as always.

I, for one, had a fairly great Easter.  I hope you did too.
