Happy Resurrection Day!

Today we had a lovely service at our fellowship celebrating resurrection Sunday. We sang great songs, saw the kids do a stick dance to “Arise My Love”, and had refreshments. At 4 we had an Easter dinner party with our small group. The kids went on an Easter egg hunt while the adults ate yummy artichoke dip! For dinner we had ham (which is a rarity here), sweet potato casserole, and many other delicious dishes. We had plenty of dessert consisting of two cakes, peanut butter pie and I made cherry berries on a cloud. It felt more like Thanksgiving with all the eating we did. It was a wonderful, reverent day!

Anna would like to thank Grandma Carman for the beautiful Easter dress. She enjoyed wearing both the dress and the chocolate she got from the Easter egg hunt!

Happy Easter!

This Friday at school we had an egg decorating activity. It was a lot of fun to just sit with the kids and talk about anything (other than school work of course). We learned that Alicia’s favorite Veggie Tales character is Jr. Asparagus and Matt likes to destroy things. (He kept saying he wanted to throw the eggs off the roof.) Alicia left one egg in the yellow for so long that the shell got eaten away by the vinegar.

At the end of the day we had a contest in two categories: creativity and best color. Jeremy won in the most creative egg category with his egg named “Asylum” (the pink faced egg). Matt won the best color with his half blue-green & pink egg. The prize was a handful of black jelly beans. Since Jeremy doesn’t like black jelly beans, I (Jacquelyn) ate his. Anna didn’t get to color any eggs but she did enjoy holding them up and dropping them. She also really likes eating them.
