Happy Easter!

Oops! Missed a day!  Sorry that I wasn't here yesterday.  We were outside most of the day.  It was beautiful!  I got three loads of laundry hung out. Hubby got the lawn mowed and cleaned up the front flower beds.  By the time I realized that I hadn't posted on my blog, it was 12:30am and I was needing some serious sleep.

The younger three got up at 6:30 am.  They found 42 plastic eggs filled with goodies waiting to be found.  Our fruit bowl was in the middle of the table filled with chocolate bunnies, peanut butter eggs, sidewalk chalk, sugar free gum, two card games (Harry Potter Uno, anyone?), and a jigsaw puzzle.

Church service was full of rejoicing.  Our jr/sr high bell choir played so beautifully, there were a few damp eyes.  The children found the "tomb" (box) where they had sealed away their Alleluias six weeks ago to be opened and empty.  They found them around the organ and choir inside eggs with symbols of the events (crown of thorns, spear, cross, donkey, cloth, coins, etc.). 

Right now most of the kids are playing outside with bubbles and sidewalk chalk.  Hearing their laughter fills my heart with joy!  Wishing everyone a joyful Easter!

Χριστος ανεστη! Αληθως ανεστη!
Christ is Risen! He is Risen, indeed!
