then the sobriety and meditation of Good Friday
like all things
"passed away" and led to...
|the joy of Easter Sunday!|
And there's nothing more joyful than Easter morning after a good Lent. :)
|The Easter table set -- before the spiral ham, broccoli salad, German potato salad, rolls, etc have been added...|
|Cathy making some last minute sugar cookies|
on Holy Saturday afternoon.
|The Minions were psyched about |
the jelly beans.

|Brrr...cold and rainy Easter day here.|
Had to move my plants off the wood
stove for a welcome fire. But it was cozy!
|Got some hoola-hoops. These girls know how to hoola that hoop.|
|Aunt Nina, a Holiday Fixture.|
|The line Gabe's reading is: Play, Day; We play all day. :) But, actually, we've been doing a lot more vegging on the couch than playing the last couple days. This is a rare literary minute in the midst of the post-Lenten movie marathon at our house. Since our self-imposed Lenten TV ban has been lifted, we've watched: How to Train Your Dragon, Ice Age III, The Sound of Music, Nemo, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Sherlock Holmes.. so far.. We missed our movies!|
