Today was a wonderful day! Russell got off work EXTRA early today so we went to the Wal Mart Associate Store, Skia, Lifeway, and Bath and Body Works. To top it off, we celebrated the day by going to Ruth's Chris Steak House! We both had a Buffalo Rib Eye and shared Mashed Potatoes--absolutely delectable. Our steak had a blue cheese crust on top. It was great! Jessica Nix emailed our Sunday School class about an awesome Easter music video that Sara Evans and Brad Paisley sing called New Again. It was such a sweet and sacred song. I love all Easter hymns. We are going to spend Easter weekend with mine and Russell's parents. On our way back home, we will stop at Kelly and Eric's and have a Easter meal! We always LOVE going to their house to see them and our nephew, Logan and niece, Lauren. This is a picture of me from last year telling Lauren and Logan about the story of Easter using the Resurrection Eggs. I love those! They help children understand the real meaning of Easter.

Quick Trip to Eureka Springs

Yesterday Russell and I decided to make a trip to Eureka Springs. We have never been there together but needless to say we didn't plan it well but it's okay though! We went to see Christ of the Ozarks and took pictures as you see. My parents, aunt and I went to a GREAT restaurant a few years ago called Ermilios. I told Russell about it and we decided to try and go last night. We got there and it was closed! Oh well! We just went to The Dixie Cafe (which doesn't even compare to Ermilio's) but it was still fun! This week we will not be that busy! Sometimes it's good to not be too busy!

FBCB's 125th Anniversary and Experiencing God Study

Today is our church, First Baptist Church Bentonville's 125th Anniversary! The church service this morning was great. We sang really great songs and the choir sang Hallelujah to My King. There was also a slideshow. We also started the Experiencing God Bible study! Russell and I have been anxiously waiting for today because we have been ready to start this awesome study. We know it'll be great and it will even get better when we study with our small groups on Monday nights!
