What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

The last of the Easter Few


I have already shown you most of the Easter photos I took (see below). These are the few leftovers from the day.

Not pictured is the spiffy looking congregation greeting us at church, a lace lined feasting table with wine and handfuls of bread as was done so long ago, the picturesque asparagus spears (SOOOOO de-lish), the beautiful outdoor table settings, the tulips on the tables, the drink trolley and food table, the smiles as grown-ups chatter and laugh, white breeze-blown tablecloths, a gorgeous handmade picnic table for children, men playing baseball and dirt pile stunts on kids' bikes. Not pictured is the handfuls of eggs just tossed every which way for children to pick up. Or the chocolate covered carrot cake balls. Or the pasta salad that I ate three plates of. Or the bazillion children running around.

Easter was a wonderful day for all the things NOT pictured.


Mom, who is wearing a leg cast with strict orders to sit down and rest: obviously NOT sitting down and resting....


A girl, decidedly UNinterested in egg finding....


A boy, who made up for his sisters' lack....

PS. Is it weird that the boy has a tan on April 5th? nah....
PPS. Notice the sweat/dirt streaks from his forehead. yeah. I warned you about the dirt!


Silly Putty would have been a fabulous idea. EXCEPT!!! All I could find was eggs with little holes in the top and bottom (WHY would they do that?!?) which were perfect escape holes for goo. So-that pretty much stunk. Goo escaped, mixed with dirt and then gooed other eggs in baskets. (yeah, not pretty.)


One more of her though because those pink flowered pigtails are just worth it....
