Okay, fast forward to yesterday....
I'm at work and get a familiar phone call from my mom saying someone is at my house in a yellowish truck wearing a hoodie. I know immediately its someone trying to break in. My mom seen them walking back to their truck and driving away, but couldn't tell what happen. She waits a while and walks over and can tell the door is locked still...we assumed he was going to break in but seen the sign saying our was protected by an alarm service. I called the cops to go patrol the area and look for the truck, just because even if he didn't get in my house I know he was up to something!
Then this afternoon we get home and Michael looks around the house to see if anything is missing, and we noticed they had stolen one of his boat accessories from his shop. (only worth about $250, so much better than last time but still aggravating!) Michael prayed for God to let them find the guy....Then, we call the cops to report the theft and are waiting on them to come when the detective calls.... SAME detective we dealt with last time.
He says "So, I hear you had a theft" and Michael says "Yup, and my mother in law saw him". The detective kinda laughs because its like a flash back to last year. He said "Okay, can she describe the vehicle or man to me" and Michael says "Yes. She told me he had on a black hoody and she couldn't see his face...but he was driving a yellow two tone suv with a green top" and the detective busted out laughing and said "We got him!" Apparently, the same guy had stolen a trailer from someone else....was driving down the road and somehow the trailer came unattached. There were more guys with the dude this time, standing around helping him get the trailer attached when a cop stopped them because they knew it was a stolen trailer. And since that vehicle is pretty unique, its simple to tie him to our theft.
Unfortunately he had already gotten rid of Michaels stuff, but we are just so thankful he is in jail .

I want to add that if anyone reading this blog has any questions about how to not end up in such a horrible, scary place then all you have to do is ask God to be your savior and trust in him. If you have ANY questions just email me.

life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Believest thou this?
Our family has enjoyed a wonderful Easter day. This morning, before church, we all watched the movie The Passion of The Christ. What a way to start your day, and remind you what all Jesus went through for us.And continuing with tradition, we had an Easter egg hunt at my parents home before supper tonight. The boys totally went to bed on a sugar high tonight!

Hayden wasn't very interested in the egg hunt. He filled his time picking up rocks and playing on the swing set.
Dylan, on the other hand, was determined and did well searching for eggs.
This is my little buddy, Hunter, being silly and cute all at the same time!
And, Kylee examining her eggs.
And this is what you call a "lazy hunter"...
Hayden and his friend, Olivia, finished the afternoon off with one final swing.

Dylan enjoyed them. Its almost a dreaded tradition for me, because no matter what precautions I take I always end up with a stain on something. But I guess the memories make it worth while.
One tradition I started this year was mess free, and happened to be even more meaningful. I bought a set of Resurrection Eggs from Lifeway Christian bookstore. These eggs appear to be like any other plastic colorful Easter egg, but pop them open and find miniature symbols of the Easter story inside...things such as a donkey, Passover cup, crown of thorns, etc. The set comes with a small book that devotes a couple page description of each item and how it fits in with the Easter story, complete with the Bible verses to back it up. My original intentions were to use these eggs with my boys, but then it hit me how great it would be for my AWANA class at church, which consists of 3-4 year olds. So we hid the eggs and after the kids found them we opened them up and went over each item inside. I really think they enjoyed them.
Okay and in a totally unrelated Easter topic...well, unless you think about the chocolate most kids find in Easter baskets... I got a cute picture I just have to share. Tonight, I gave the kids a bath and set them down to eat supper. After supper I let them each pick a special treat, and both picked a chocolate cake to eat. Boy, what a mistake that was. I left the room for a second, only to come back to this ordeal.
You don't even get the full effect I did from seeing it in person, and cleaning it ALL up.
