He is Risen

It is a few days late, but I must do a little Easter Recap. It was just one of those wonderfully blessed days in which one is overwhelmed with thankfulness.

It started out just right with an awesomely anointed church service. I was sweating by the end of worship. On a side note, awesome way to get a little bonus work out in – in church!

And then the family gathered over at my parent’s house.

It was very special this year because my grandparents made up some of the party. We sat in the lovely spring sun and chatted while watching the kids play. I tried and tried to get a cute grandkids photo…. But they just did not want to cooperate.

Yes, with six kids ranging from nineteen to thirty something, my parents STILL give us Easter baskets – God bless them. Us kids look forward to it every year, because we have always done something very special. My parents write clues and hide them throughout the house so that we each have to solve various problems and mysteries prior to discovering our baskets. The older we get, the more complex the clues have become. It is such fun.

And then we all sat down to a great Easter feast complete with turkey and stuffing.

It was a perfect day. A wonderful way to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior.

    1. It was a lovely day. And it would not have been complete if you guys had not caught the tale end of it :)

  2. Truly an amazing day and wonderful time with the family. I love our traditions. And so special to have four generations included.
