Happy Easter!

I'm wishing you all a very happy and blessed Easter Day!
I've had a busy week even though we had Friday off for Good Friday. Sometimes 4 day weeks are the longest! We ended the week with a field trip and field trip days are always tiring! At dismissal there was a mysterious smoke smell in the building and the Principal called the Fire Dept. They sent out no less than 12 fire trucks and 2 ambulances...closed the road... all. during. dismissal! Can you say crazy??? The parents could not get to the kids to pick them up, nobody could really leave, it was a mess! There was never a fire, it turned out something in a mechanical room had started to burn, but they caught it in time which I'm so thankful for...but did it really require 12 fire trucks? Seriously, I wish I had taken a picture for you all to see, because you would have thought the school had burned completely down!
Friday I took my grandmother to a couple doctor appointments. She seems to be doing good:) as we were running through some quick errands we were inadvertently in the middle of the tornado coming through Middle Tennessee!! We hadn't heard the warnings and didn't even know what was going on, but thank goodness it was really only a hard rain but we were only about 5 miles from serious tornado damage. So scary! The twisters damaged or destroyed at least 250 houses in Murfreesboro, TN and took 2 lives and injured many more. My heart goes out to all of those people who lost their homes or loved ones in the tornadoes.
Today I went to see a house that I really loved, but found out later a contract was accepted the day before I saw it...always a day late and a dollar short it seems. So now I'm switching gears to consider building a home here on some of my mom's land. If I build and move in by December I could still get the First Time home buyer tax credit. So I'm looking into it...Eddie and Amber are also looking into building out here. We have plenty of land thanks to my dad and grandpa and building on our land is something I always wanted to do, but thought financially it may be out of my reach. It may be, I will wait and see.
Finally this afternoon I began preparing for Easter dinner. We had Madison and Eddie over to help with Easter know the cute green colored coconut as "grass" and jelly beans as "eggs". We had an egg hunt (for the 10th time this season!).

I'm so glad y'all weren't in the tornado path. That can be really scary.

Have a happy and blessed Easter, Amy.
