Until faith becomes sight

(i don’t know why the date is wrong on this thing..always one day ahead…)

 

my grandpa always writes this at the end of letters/cards to us grandkids: “until faith becomes sight, love you G & G”… it is so so special to me. and such a great reminder that we are held dearly by our Savior until this faith we cling to, is realized in heaven. today, of course being Easter, brings this sentiment to mind all the more. how incredible that we will have our faith realized when we get to heaven. so much to be thankful for today and always.

easter weekend was a great! my parents and sissiebear and bro-in-law came to visit us! whooop! we ate, laughed, ate, took naps, ate, went shopping, and ate. it rocked. big time. i, of course, only took ONE pic of us all this weekend…just having too much fun to remember to, i guess….. i love my family and on saturday night we got to spend time with some of paul’s family too. his mom and dad and brother and our sister-in-law couldn’t all be together unfortunately, but we hung out with his aunt, uncle, and cousin. we LOVE THEM. so much fun. so sassy. we made home made pizzas, (this is kinda our thing right now..) and watched more of the NCAA tournament (ps. OMG. did you see the Louisville player break his leg…both pauly and i broke out into cold sweats…it was so horrific. poor kid..), and caught up on life. great. great. great.

here are some pics from this weekend and some that i have just been meaning to put up for a while. i am PROMISING myself to blog more on this and my food/recipe blog now that easter is over. lots of fun stuff coming up too! pauly and i are going to AZ this wednesday through monday to visit his cousin who is working there, old friends from our thunderbird days, and get some much needed vitamin D. so lots of pics from that i promise!

oh, and…still house hunting…we are thinking now about building..we shall see…….it’s just a taaaaaaad discouraging to see so many houses and not find anything (we looked at 9 homes with my parents on friday!) but i know we will find something perfect for us, and i am thankful that we have a home now, and have the opportunity to look for a new one. what a blessing.

so for now, we are resting on the couch. watching movies. eating food. (shocking.) and having a SUUUUPER chill easter sunday. someday i hope to host a big dinner and get dressed up and take lots of pics, but for today i am in my sweats and loving it.

happy easter to us all!

okay, we were walking out of church and we saw this little girl. my mom literally stopped her and her mom and asked if we could take a pic of her! haha! she was SO adorable and her mom said she dressed herself for easter! hysterical.
