West Coast Easter

Hope everyone had a nice Easter Sabbath.  Mark played his violin perfectly with the choir number this morning at church and I loved singing the Easter hymns. 
Like you, Becca, I didn't get photos of everyone there or the meal.  Once Peter's family came I was too busy serving up dinner to take photos.  But it was wonderful to have them all here.  After heavy rain the past couple of days we were blessed with a dry, mild day.  Aaron's family came early to do their family egg hunt in our back yard.  It made if feel like Easter for us to have little ones trying to find eggs in the bushes!

Before the hunt, Eleanor shows off her new hair cut with her mommy/hairdresser.  Truman gives Misha a thorough greeting!  
 Lincoln's eggs were orange.
 Eleanor's were pink.
 I set up an art project that I had done with my kindergarten class, making bubble prints.
 Kids blew bubbles into paint/dish soap mixture with a straw, and then captured the bubble prints on a paper outline of an egg.  Messy but fun!  
 Butterfly and flower sugar cookies on my mother-in-laws old Franciscan Wear, Desert Rose. 
 Two things I love about Easter:  fresh tulips and the Franciscan-Wear dishes.
 Dessert bar:  Chocolate covered strawberries,  Chocolate Bunt Cake, Sugar Cookies, Candy
