Easter Weekend

Well we finally broke down and went car shopping. I had a cute, sporty litle Hyundai Santa Fe, but if only seats five and we are now a family of six. It really didn't even seat 5 well considering 4 of them were in car seats. Jake and I have been having a mini-van/SUV debate. Jake already drives a mini van and loves it, I hate them and didn't want one, I wanted a bigger SUV. I know that vans are cheaper, more storage, more comfortable, ect, but they just don't look cool! =) So we had finally decided to go look at both and see what was in our price range and go from there.

Well, there were pretty much no SUV's that were in our price range. So onto vans. We finally found one that I think I could live with driving. It is a Buick Terraza. It is a "luxury" mini van. It has all leathers seats with Captain chairs in the second row, climate control, premium sound, DVD, CD, automatic doors that open with the push of a button, a lots of bells and whistles. It also has a lot more powerful engine than my Santa Fe so that will be nice. We gave an offer on it which was accepted so we will just have to wait and see about financing. The banks were closed when we made our offer so we just have to wait on the dealer to call us back.

Sunday we went to church. Every year our church has Easter services at the high school in Mulvane. There is always a lot of visitors so our church really tries to show what we can offer these families. There are activities for kids of all ages, the choir sings a big number, and our pastor wows as usual. This year we had several people meet Jesus for the first time so it was really awesome. Plus everyone looked great. Mina and my mother in law looked very pretty in white and light green. Noah and Jamie were so handsome in their sweater vests. Linda's dress was beautiful and Jake looked hot in a shirt and tie.

After church we had our friend Mike and my cousin over for dinner. I made my first ham ever! It was not bad. Jake and Mike ate a ton and even Linda had seconds. I would say it was a sucess.
