It comes as no surprise here that I have been totally remiss at journaling my days. So, without making any promises to myself or you about how I'm going to do such a better job, I am going to try to do better. How's that for not committing to anything?
And I figured I'd start with Easter. Before April ended.
Easter was a wonderful day. I just love spending time with my family! But, even though the day was spent having a great time, we did not forget that the whole purpose of the day is celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior. How amazing are all the ramifications of that simple statement! Without the resurrection, the birth and death of Jesus would mean nothing. Our Redeemer lives!
And, as is our normal tradition, we try to wear something new on Easter Sunday. Sadly, I can't post pictures of our entire family as the two newest members still haven't had their adoption court dates. So, just imagine how cute they are! And they are really, really cute!
Have you noticed how hard it is to buy a dress without black being a predominate color? I know we don't have an abundance of clothing stores in our little town, but this is the ONLY dress I found that didn't have black in its color scheme! I'm glad I liked it.

The Josh Abdelaziz family all dressed in orange. I thought they all looked great, but thought it was amazing that they could all coordinate like this as orange didn't seem to be a widespread spring wardrobe color. I guess I thought wrong. Several families in church were all dressed in orange! Who knew?
I just love our little church!
I love it so much that I want it to grow bigger!
I love every last person in this picture!
(And the ones who didn't make it into the picture, too.)
Our main table only had six adults. Odd for us.
But, Grandpa, Grandma, and Aunt Janice all ate in Grandpa's room to keep him company.
I bought our little chocolate bunnies last year at the after-Easter sales. They've been chillin' in our freezer for a year. All wrapped in their atrociously colored foil. But, disrobed and beribboned, I think they are just darling.
These little fake-moss-covered flying bunnies came from Pier 1. I think they are just too cute when planted in a little rye grass. (The basket and grass was a thank-you gift from Sarah-Kate. I just love decorating with grass! And she knows it. I planted some grass in eggshells like Darcy over at fly through our window, but apparently I didn't take any pictures of them. But, they were sweet.)

Food is starting to gather.
Table is getting full.
Two little children's tables and one highchair.
The children thought it was great fun to eat a chocolate bunny with dinner. Diego decided to roll the bunny in his hands as it started to melt. Interesting thing to do.
Lots of eggs to hide. The men in the family did such a good job hiding them, we almost didn't find them all! Can you see the egg hiding in there?
Shallah "found" an egg, too. But, she really wasn't interested in it, as you can see.
