The Monday after Easter, how can that be? It seems it was just January 1st a few days ago. Not sure if it's an "age thing" or if time truly is flying by.
We had a good Easter celebration...........
Hanna Beth dyed more Easter eggs with her Mom on Friday. Her Mom spread out a huge beach towel in the front yard and Hanna Beth worked away painting and decorating eggs. I thought it was a cleaver idea to do it outside. It was a beautiful afternoon and I stopped by for a few minutes to watch "the artist at work."
I always fix the Grans a basket and this year I did not use a traditional basket. Hanna Beth loves Minnie Mouse and I found this basket/box and filled it for her. The basket on the left is the one she uses to hunt the eggs with at our house. I have a pink one and a blue one and they stay here for the Grans to use. Clancy got his basket via the mail this year.
We had our family Easter celebration on Saturday afternoon. Our menu consisted of grilled pork tenders, potato casserole, green bean casserole, congealed salad, rolls and lemon ice box cake. Even if I do say so, it was scrumptious!
Daddy even enjoyed the fun and continues to feel very good. Doesn't he look like a "star" in this picture? He's a mess!
The Easter bunny had dropped by and hid eggs in our backyard for Hanna Beth and she had a good time finding them. She was extra excited when she figured out that he had left money in the "prize eggs." It's so much fun viewing through the eyes of a child!
One of Hubby's iris' was in full bloom for our celebration. I don't know that I've ever seen one any more beautiful.
We had a wonderful service of worship at church yesterday morning. Our choir did a cantata that told the Easter story beautifully and I do believe stirred the souls of all who were there.
It was a beautiful Easter from beginning to end. And, it looks as though Spring has fully arrived! Hip! Hip! Hooray!!!
