A few days ago, Kees asked me, "Momma is it yeasterday yet?" I thought he was trying to say "yesterday" and he was confused. Later I realized he was asking if it was Easter day. So cute.
I was up until around 3 am, then woke up at 4:45 to get ready for our sunrise service. Our kids were not wanting to get up, even when we told them the Easter Bunny had come. Kora was a little confused and trying to figure out what was going on.
|It was so early.|
We drove to a nearby park and met with our church and two of our sister churches from here in Chiang Mai. We brought our cakes, you know, the cake-splosion cakes. When we arrived they were singing beautifully next to a fountain. Everyone was sitting on mats. They pulled up a bench for us to sit on, since we are foreigners or falongs as they call us. But I sat down with the kids on a mat anyway. Sometimes I'm stubborn. I just don't like getting special treatment...except from Doug and then I quite graciously accept chocolate, cheese, and iced coffee. (P.S. Today, I got two out of three: a snickers and coffee). Anyway, it was still dark, then it got lighter, but I never really saw the sunrise. WHAT?! How did I get up to go to a sunrise service and NOT see the sunrise. Well, I'll tell you, the haze/smog is still here and causing quite a lot of trouble.
|Looks like no rain in sight, I'll take rain as my April Fool's joke, pretty please.|
Poor Kees has a cough, and after being at the service for around 30 minutes I realized he was starting to get a fever and not acting like himself.
|Sick baby, he's doing alright. We've been giving him tylenol and trying to keep him indoors since the air adds to the respiratory problems.|
|Finally saw the sun rising when we got back to our place around 7. It was so red and gorgeous, this picture is a very poor representation.|
|One of the pictures Doug took later in the day. I think I see cake in one of those bowls!|
|The man I'm talking about is on the bench to the right and behind the pastor standing.|
The rest of our day was pretty boring. The kids and I took another nap later in the day, we inspected our eggs, had dinner, and now we're off to bed. Oh, and I got a pretty funny picture of Kees NOT eating dinner. Every day I understand my mother more and more...so scary! I was a picky eater so I more than deserve this. Love that little guy anyway, but would take suggestions for picky eaters if you have any. :)
|Checking out what is in all those eggs!|
|Pretty sure she likes the eggs more than the candy.|
|Dinner, needle beans, cheesy eggs, yogurt, and rice.|
|He did eventually eat, but he was at the table for an hour and a half! But while he was eating...he was fighting with Kora about toys, and I was able to clean with one less kid getting into stuff, so I guess if that's what it takes...|
And finally, my good word of the day is from a picture I saw on facebook, so here it is:
|Love this, Happy Resurrection Sunday!|
