I have been slow getting another post out since our trip to New York. Seems it takes me longer and longer to catch up with things when I get home and throw a holiday in the mix and I am learning what ‘the hurrier I go, the behinder I get’ means!
We had a wonderful Easter with family and extended family here at our house. Our Easter service was lovely but I must confess I did not get up in time to go to the sunrise service and breakfast. The choir sang the Hallelujah Chorus and it gave me goose bumps, they did such a wonderful job. The pastor gave a wonderful message, I feel so badly for him as his wife is dealing with bre*ast cancer. I know it is only by the grace of God that he can even concentrate on the things he must attend to at church.
The day before Easter Mom and I filled the plastic Easter eggs with goodies over in her house. It was fun and I had to try out some of the candy to make sure it was okay…….
We also made pies…yum…pumpkin, my favorite!
Who is that lady in the rollers with the spatula over her head?
We did something different this year for Easter lunch. Usually when I have a crowd in I get out the good dishes and use pretty table clothes and all but this year we decided to go casual. We served the food buffet style on the counter and used PAPER PLATES! SHOCKING! This was a first but it sure saved on the clean up and we got more time to visit and do things outside.
We had our egg hunt and the kids loved that. Notice we do have a bit of green grass!!! YAY!
They looked so nice dressed up for church. Cousin K was helping the ushers so had his badge on. :o)
The kids wanted to drive the Rhino so some of us went outside and drove around the trails for a bit and D likes to play ball so we did that too. It was just a good old fashion family day. What a blessing!!
I received a beautiful birthday surprise from my friend Mary aka Needled Mom. She does the most beautiful sewing that I have ever seen and is always trying something new and fun. This is a puzzle piece and she did all of it including the lovely detailing!
Look at the intricate flowers, sooooooo pretty!
Thank you so much Mary, you know that I am in awe of your work and appreciate it so much when you send these wonderful things!!! xoxox
It is raining here but at least it’s not like other parts of the country are having. When I hear on the news about a certain part of the country having tornadoes or floods or wildfires etc I always think of my blogging friends that live in that particular area. This morning I heard something about Missouri so now I need to go check in with Donna to make sure she and Cliff are okay.
