The Lord Is Risen! He Is Risen Indeed!
We celebrated our second major holiday in our rental house. We have just as many Easter traditions as we do Christmas traditions but, unfortunately, many more of them needed to be set aside this year. In the first place, we puked our way through Holy Week so the week we normally spend preparing our hearts, minds and souls for the celebration of Easter was spent laundering linens and passing around buckets. I suppose there's an essay in there somewhere as well...sigh...
We did manage to hide some Easter baskets on Easter morning, get a few pictures of the children in their dressy clothes, get to church and head to Muffy and Granddad's for the annual cousin Easter egg hunt. There were lots of great missed photo ops there - had the camera but didn't seem to use it. David really enjoyed his first egg hunt and he did remarkably well. He and John Michael got their own category and got a head start on the hunting. It was a nice fun and relaxing day but we're all looking forward to having our big cross and our tomb back to continue with our usual observances next year.
