He is Risen!

Over the weekend, we celebrated the fact that Christ arose and is alive. Celebrating with family and friends cannot be beat. I love it! Saturday morning we feasted on chocolate and almond croissants, scrumptious eggs and ham and an assortment of fruit, with Stephen's family. The kids had a blast searching for hidden eggs and they ended the hunt by finding the most treasured prize, God's Word.

These are the remnants of a breakfast enjoyed.

Opening their eggs and discovering all of the candy!

On Sunday, the kids woke up to their Easter baskets and an egg hunt in the living room. We celebrated with my family that afternoon. We ate braised BBQ beef, three bean casserole, an assortment of salads and desserts. I made a fresh fruit tart with pastry cream to share. The kids enjoyed another Easter egg hunt and we now have more candy in this house than we should eat in a year!
