What a great weekend it has been!!!
The All Saints Lutheran Church First Annual Easter Celebration and Egg Hunt was a smashing success! The mistress of ceremonies, Mother Goose, couldn’t have been cuter or a better hostess, our Easter Bunny, despite his hat falling off, was a gem! The food was good and good for the kids, and, best of all, we had more than 50 kids!!! I fretted all week that noone would come, or the games wouldn’t work out and so on. But, the weather couldn’t have been better, and the helpers came and the food was mostly eaten (We’ve got a TON of veggies and dip left…).
Eleanor did pretty well with the egg hunting this year. When she’s all alone, and we are practicing the egg hunting, she can collect ’em pretty quick. When there is a crowd of people… she just comes to pieces and wants to watch the other kids, and usually she she starts yelling, “I wanna purple un!”
Here are some egg hunt pictures:
Our Easter Bunny and Mother Goose! The best EVER!
I’ll get some more pictures up soon….
The Children’s Easter Service yesterday was well attended. In fact, we ran out of bulletins and hot crossed buns. Yea us!
The whole family got together for Easter, (well, except for my sister who is enjoying her spring break in PARIS!) and it was great to get the kids and the grandparents and godparents and aunties and friends together. We went to Eagle’s Landing for brunch, and it was delicious and fun until Saralyn had a poo-splosion and covered Bambi in about a QUART of baby poop. I’m not kidding. When Bambi caught up with us later, she said that the only clothes she didn’t have to change were her bra and her socks. I’ve never been so embarrassed in all my life. Even though I was wearing a white dress, I wished it had been me!
ANYWAY – we all got home and had a day full of reading the paper, eating candy, talking life and politics and so on. A truly wonderful Easter.
