He is Risen!  
March 27, 2016

This was a wonderful Easter Sunday.  The day started out foggy, but by noon the clouds had burned off and the day was outstanding.  I woke up around 5:00 this morning and decided to go ahead and get up.  I needed to make a salad to take to an Easter party in the late afternoon and had started it the previous evening but not finished.  I finished making it and cleaned the kitchen having the dishwasher ready to start when we went to church. 

We had a nice crowd in our class and a great lesson.  Then the Worship Service was very nice.  There was a baptism of a young woman and at the end of the service the salvation of a young boy.  God is good.  I had picked Mom up between class and the service. 

After the service, I got to chat with a friend who has been out of town, and catch up a little on our busy lives.  We came home after the service and had a light lunch.  As soon as we finished lunch, I started on cupcakes for the Easter party. 

 Probably since we first had grandchildren, we have been spending part of the day on Easter at our son's mother-in-law's home.  She invites a large group of her friends and family and her daughters' friends.  One of the daughters was not there today, but there were lots of new friends of the hostess.  She often invites friends who do not have any grandchildren in town for the celebration and they come and enjoy watching her grandchildren hunt for the eggs after a covered dish meal.

This year, as she did last year, she had the main course catered and then everyone brought salads and desserts.  My mom was there; she had gotten a ride with a friend.  I was just a relaxing, good time together.  We had fajita tacos with all the add-ons anyone could want.  The food was very good and the weather was perfect. 

The kids ranged in age from 4 - 17 and all had a great time.  The plastic eggs are filled with coins, candies, or trinkets.  The real eggs shells are filled with confetti.  What fun to crack those confetti eggs on each others' heads.  The party started at 5:30 and ran until about 8:30.  It was good to visit with friends.
