Easter Sunday

Alleluia, He is risen! He is risen indeed!


What a glorious day!


William of course had to check the magic seeds first thing. Yup, it had worked. A Cadbury egg for each seed.




He had to get a container.





The health-conscience Nashville bunny had brought more toys then candy. After all, there will be an Easter egg hunt after church too.



He had to check whether anything else was happening with the seeds. The Cadbury eggs didn't have any roots and seeds always grow roots. He is in the garden club at school.



Arrival at the church. Eggs everywhere. Good thing there is a roof over this. Drizzle rain had started.


The Easter flower cross. We had brought daffodils and blue pansies from the garden.
Our friend Rob had told me a long time ago that when William comes to visit he may ring the church bells. Rob was true to his word and William was so happy. William loves doing things for the church. He was in awe about this job.
It makes one happy to see the church so full and so many children come forward for children's sermon. William is somewhere in there.



Omi had teller-duty and I didn't see any of this. Helen shared videos and photos thank goodness. I guess the children get instructions in the first photo.








Wow, look at the bounty in the picture above.

He took everything out of the plastic eggs and left them at church for next year.




Omi and Papa gave William this Lego set. He started right away.



After lunch our friend Betty came by to give this giant bunny to William. It was really sweet of her but gave us a problem. He fell in love with it and it caused crocodile tears when he was told that there was no way they could take bunny in the plane.




Caleb loved bunny too. Sarah, Wade and Caleb came after Wade's visiting parents had left and Caleb had had his nap. Kathy and Mike had taken Jimmy, the big black lab, with them for his vacation so Schatzi came along not to be alone. She is a big dog too but very sweet and no problem.






Easter dinner was at 5 pm with the traditional lamb roast and roasted potatoes done by James to perfection.

A picture of the also (Burr) traditional "rabbits in the grass" is the only evidence I have.



After the others had left to go back "over the river" William went back to finish his challenger. He is excellent in following the directions.






Bedtime for William. Last sleep this vacation. Helen is packing. Unbelievable how fast this week has gone. It has been so nice. Have to be thankful for that!

  1. Easter at St. Martin’s was absolutely lovely. I was very honored when William came into the kitchen and showed me his very full basket! Dinner sounded delicious. I missed having lamb this year!
