Happy Easter

April 1, 2013

We had a lovely day yesterday.  Spring has sprung here in Indy.  We had a beautiful day yesterday to celebrate Easter.

Our day began at church, where we had a great message (and very fitting!) from our minister.  All day yesterday I was repeating to myself, “Because of the Resurrection, we have HOPE…..and because God raised His Son from the dead, anything, absolutely anything IS possible with God.  What a great promise that is and a great reminder for us every day.  We fully claim that!  

Later, we enjoyed lunch with my family at my parents.  It was so great to spend time with our family.  We enjoyed many laughs and had fun watching my cousin’s two girls hunt Easter eggs in the backyard.  

Of course, Elena was a doll in her Easter dress!  The Easter Bunny brought her a basket full of toys (visual objects) and a few Reese’s eggs for Mom and Dad.  Uncle Aaron and Aunt Amber got her a basket of goodies too!  The best present was a bouncy horse that the Easter Bunny left at our house to open when we got home.  She L-O-V-E-D it!  It was pretty great to see her to just have fun with a toy and it not necessarily be “therapy” related.  I told Laney that maybe the Easter bunny will bring her a real pony some day.  I’m not sure if Chad appreciated that or not! 🙂
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!!

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
