Sunrise Service, a Twirly Dress and Artificial Deviled Eggs

Yesterday was just delightful.  We started out VERY early, leaving for church at 5:30ish in the morning.  The Worship Team was to meet at 6:00 a.m. to wake our voices up for the 6:30 service.  After that early service we were treated to a pancake breakfast put on by our youth.  The Worship Team stays for the second service as well.  I don't mind at all.  I love singing Easter songs...and I have a crush on the pastor. (OK, if you are new to this blog, don't be creeped out.  I am also married to the pastor.)

After church we went to Maria & Eric's for an Easter meal.  While Maria put on the finishing touches, Cordy entertained us with her twirly dress.



Sam talked on the non-functioning decorative phone, which kind of concerned Cordy.  She kept telling him, "There's nobody there Sam, there's nobody there."


Maria prepared a yummy vegan meal for us, including Tofurkey (a soy product that tastes a lot like turkey), asparagus, and the best couscous I've ever eaten.  Note the deviled eggs.  They aren't really eggs at all!  I couldn't believe she made them out of agar powder, soy milk and such!  They were tasty.  I ate waaaaay too much, like I always do at a holiday meal.


After our pie we watched as Cordy checked out her Easter basket.  When she saw the paints she said, "I absolutely love to paint!"  She's just two and I wasn't expecting to hear "absolutely" from her little mouth but it was cute.




Then, it was out to the backyard for the Easter Egg Hunt.  












I invite you to go on over to Petra's blog.  You won't be sorry.  Petra writes beautiful poetry, something that is becoming more and more rare.  She has an especially thoughtful Easter poem posted.

I hope your Easter was as lovely as our's.
