Easter Sunday

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Yesterday was Anna Claire's first time at church and what a wonderful day to celebrate! I told everyone at church it felt like she was a debutante and it was her "coming out" party! Everyone loved her (of course!). We were so excited to be able to go to church as a family today after so many weeks of one of us not being there. She did wonderfully and it was great to see everyone again! Our church family has been nothing but amazing and generous towards us the past 8 weeks. They have faithfully prayed for us and for Anna Claire and have also provided many meals! Thank you to our Calvary Bible Church family! We are glad to be back!


I hope everyone had a blessed Easter! Anna Claire goes for her 2 month visit on Tuesday...we'll see if she is over 6 pounds yet!

By the way...yes, that is red hair that you see on her head!!!!

How precious! What a special day to make her debut... one you'll always be able to remember! Having a church family makes such a difference - especially in difficult times. So glad you have a great one!

Have a wonderful week with that little red head! :-)

Hi Sarah,

I have been way from blogging for awhile and just began checking in with some old friends.

I am so excited to see Anna Claire and read over the posts of the past month or so.

What a very special Easter this must have been for your sweet family.

Congratulations!

Blessings, Cindy

Amber said...

So cute! She got her momma's red locks! Glad you were blessed to be able to go to the Easter service. How special that your first church visit as a family of 3 was on Easter!

P.S. We have an air date for our TLC show! Details on my blog!

My Anna Claire is a redhead also, although she called the other day to inform me that she and her friends were bored so she dyed her hair brown. I just about died! Thank goodness it will wash out in a few weeks.
