I’m not normally a numbers guy, but with the help of Pastor DJ (a self proclaimed Numbers Nerd) here are some of the numbers we’re celebrating following a record-breaking Easter Sunday at NWLife Church:

  1. 864- number of times I smiled (approximately)
    63- amazing children’s ministry volunteers
    30- the size (in inches) of the ginormous chocolate bunnies we gave away in Kid’s Life
    6- parents who rolled their eyes and gave me quite the look when they found out their kid had won said bunny 🙂
    3- Grande non-fat no whip Mochas to get me through the day
    1- big hissy fit thrown by Tiger Woods during the Masters
    0- naps taken by my 1 year old which explains why she slept until 10am this morning

    It was a great day!!
