Easter Came & Went... So Quickly!

Good gracious! I don't know how two weeks has gone by without my posting! Time really does fly when you are having fun!
I've been meaning to post my latest project, but with high school tour shortly after I finished it, I never got the chance. Here is the Spring wreath I made:

It took a lot longer to finish than I had planned on. Sometimes, I forget how time consuming it is to make those rosettes. They just come out SO beautifully! I wish I could remember which blog inspired me to make a wreath like this. This is why I should post immediately following completion. Haha

The night before Easter, we got a really neat opportunity to go see Casting Crowns in concert & go to a Meet and Greet ahead of time. I love listening to them and was really excited to go to the concert. Problem is, I only hear them on the radio, so next time, I should probably do better at knowing more about the band so we aren't awkwardly standing there going which group are they with. Haha. Anyhoo, here is a photo of us with Casting Crown's drummer:

We had a really great Easter. I really enjoyed singing in the choir for Easter this year. It's always wonderful to celebrate our risen Savior with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Then it blessed my heart to see one of the kids in my 4 & 5 yr old class and one of our students get baptized!

I made some really cool little gift packages for each of my Sunday School classes. I found some really neat Printables online. The one for the 4 & 5 year old class said "No Bunny Loves You Like Jesus", so I added a Bunny
Peep to it. The one for my 8th Grade girls class said "Chick Jesus Out" and had Psalm 34:8 on it. I added the regular Peeps to that one.

For Easter this year, Matt got me the outdoor table set I really wanted. In addition to that, he also gave me the rest of the mantle decor I wanted. I came home from work one night and it was all set up. I LOVE IT!

That last picture is terrible, but it's all I've got for now. Hopefully soon our computer will be back in action and I can get some better pictures.

Here is Matt's Easter basket this year:

I used a fruit basket that I picked up at Hobby Lobby then added some music note ribbon to it. I'm hoping to get it painted and fixed up a little nicer for next year. Maybe I can get that done this weekend.

We spent Easter afternoon with my parents. My dad grilled his fabulous steaks and grilled corn which of course made me super happy. I have been wanting grilled corn for a while now. Now that we have a grill, I'm pretty sure Matt will be grilling up some yummy corn for me regularly. Hehe.

This past weekend was pretty quiet in the Sloma house. Matt's been working on homework as well as Middle School Choir Tour. I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted to, but it was nice to sit back and just relax. I've got some fun project plans in the works, so maybe after next weekend I can get started on them.
