Easter Sunday

We had a glorious Easter/Resurrection Sunday! I hope you did too! I always think Easter morning should be a radiant, sunny, spring day, and this year it was!~

Our church choir presented an Easter Cantata and they did an amazing job! With less than twenty members, God must have donated a few voices from the heavenlies, because they sounded magnificent! The Cantata was so worshipful and triumphant!

Tiffany played "My Tribute" for Offertory, and she played it with so much passion! It was very moving and God-honoring!

Here is a picture of Tiffany and Joseph, taken after church. I wanted to get everyone together for a family picture -- but somehow, it never materialized.

It was nice to have the whole family around the table, including Ashlyn and Mum Mum (Alan's Mom). We did miss having my parents here, but the trip is a lot for them to undertake these days with us being so far away.

Our Easter Menu included:

Spiral Ham
Party Potato Casserole
Potato Salad
Devilled Eggs
Spinach Salad
Yeast Rolls
Carrot Cake

Bethany got tired of waiting to be served and decided to help herself to a deviled egg! :) It may not have been picture-perfect manners, but it did make a cute picture!! :)

After dinner, Matt serenaded us on the piano. Maybe he is going to follow in Tiffany's footsteps??

Taylor impressed us by washing ALL of the dishes from dinner! It was a huge job, with our dishwasher still broken, but he never complained once! He had lots of help with the drying and putting away, and the old adage proved true -- "Many hands make light work."

Here are some pictures that Hannah took of Bethany outside. Tiffany bought her the new dress for Easter. Isn't it adorable?

It is rare that I like a picture of myself, but I really like this picture of Joseph and Me! Isn't he handsome??

After dinner was eaten and cleaned up, the house grew Very Quiet, as there were many napping passengers! (Alan and the boys were especially tired because they didn't get home from the Braves game until 2:30 am!) Ashlyn and I took advantage of the peace and quiet, to enjoy a LONG talk sitting on the porch swing. It was a rare opportunity and we made the most of it! :)
