Our Happy Resurrection Day!

Since our church is meeting on Saturday nights now, Easter Sunday was quite relaxing. Although, we did choose to go to a "Sunrise Service."

Actually, it was at 9 AM. (Hey, that's when the sun rose in my eyes.)

Actually it was "Breakfast at Hantie's." And I still had my robe on. Now that's a good service!

Here's Abby's Easter basket. Horton was sitting on the "nest" of goodies and eggs. He is a faithful elephant. "One hundred percent!"

And the all important chocolate rabbit. Mmmmmm, good!

Here's what Hantie had made for all her children and had one little bunny left over, so she gave it to Abby. It's a bread bunny with a chocolate kiss in the belly. When Abby found the kiss, she didn't eat the rest of the bunny. My girl loves chocolate!

Later on in the evening, we hid plasic eggs in the house for Abby to find. It's become a favorite game. Yes, she's still in her pajamas from the morning. I told you it was a relaxing day! She did change into a nightgown to go to bed.

Our Easter celebrations all happened inside this year. March 23 is MUCH too early to have Easter in my opinion. But I guess the whole "full moon, spring equinox thing" really doesn't take my advice. Plus, I promised myself I would not mention here that we got FIVE INCHES of snow that weekend. So pretend I didn't. Just like I'm pretending that because the calendar says "spring" it must be warm and sunny outside. Don't those flowers smell pretty?

Glad you had a great day! I agree Easter should be on the 3rd week of April every year.

Ha...Happy EAster! I didn/t know you got snow that day. We had a pretty nice day in Cincinnati. :) It's got to get better, right?

Love the photos. Abby is really a sweet looking little girl.
