I did learn that I was somewhat addicted to blogging. It's good to discover that there's life outside of the blogosphere even though I miss my friends in here. Bet you didn't know that you live inside this little box that sits on my desk, did ya?
I hope everyone had a wonderful celebration of the Resurrection. I made the girls some crosses to hang in their bedrooms and some chocolate cross lollipops. They acted out the Easter story with an old (somewhat cheesy) puppet show I made years ago. They had a good time and learned why we celebrate Easter. No bunnies at this house.

Did any of you participate in a TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party in your area? The Arlington TEA Party turned out to be a huge success. Way beyond anything I imagined. God orchestrated all of the details and we ended up with about 2000 - 2500 people. It was so thrilling to see people come out and speak out and stand up for our Nation.
I can't tell you what it was like to watch the people as they were given a platform to express themselves and feel like they can have a voice after all. It was like watching them find freedom that had been taken away. It was like that for me too. And I found that it isn't ending with that one, but we are continuing in our efforts. It looks like God has a few plans for me in this. I really have a heart to see God's people start really speaking out and taking back this Nation for Christ. We have been complacent for too long.
Here are a few pictures of our TEA Party and the designs I made for shirts and buttons. It was really fun to watch people get excited over these.
