Resurrection Sunday Celebration!

I hope your Resurrection Sunday was happy and blessed! I obviously chose to focus on family and not the blog over the long weekend and it was wonderful to enjoy having my Son and his friend visiting from university. We shared favorite foods, took off on little adventures, and spent time laughing and catching up. On Sunday after worship we went to my in-laws’ house to spend time with the extended family, share a huge meal, and watch our little nephew hunt for his Easter eggs. Such a weekend made it easy to feel the hope and joy of the Resurrection.

(And by the way, the candy was a hit!)

Here are a few snapshots that represent our day. If you have pictures to share, I’d love to see them on Facebook and Twitter!

  1. I am glad you had a good Easter weekend with family. We did too. We went to the youth run breakfast and church. My two oldest and their families were out of the area for the weekend and the middle girl due to her hospital schedule stayed where she was and celebrated with family on my husband’s side. So after church we (husband and I, my mother, and our youngest boy and girl) drove south to one of my brothers. We had a lovely large get together, lots of food. Left my mother there so she could spend more time with family in the area.
