It is a beautiful day here today, and it is a glorious Easter!  In our family, Easter is more than bunnies and lambs.  That doesn't mean we don't have a few of those around.

Giving a welcome to all who come to the door.

Presiding in a relaxed manner over all proceedings.

More interest in what's going on.

Taking their station in the middle of the table.  Do you suppose they plan to eat the carrot?

                           Atop the china cabinet.

While all the decor is fun, what really gives Easter meaning for us is being part of the worship service at our church.  We are "Easter people" with faith in the risen Christ.  What marvelous hope that gives all of us!

City Girl came to town yesterday for a brief visit.  Today, the Newly-Weds came to town as well, and we all attended church service together.  A special treat was being able to join the choir at the end of the service to sing the Hallelujah Chorus, a musical selection that both City Girl and I have learned for singing in choirs in the past.  It was really special to be able to sing it again.

                       A selection of cookies for dessert.
This was dessert today - along with some chocolate cake which we had from the recent wedding.  It has been waiting for us in the freezer.

                       Hairdo for Country Girl.
Here is one more wedding-related picture for you.  Country Girl had a friend who worked on her hair, and this is nearing the completion of the session.  It was really lovely.

If you are still "with me," I wish each of you a blessed Easter!  Thank you for following along and reading.  Also, I love reading your comments.

  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful day with your family, Nellie. How special to be able to be part of that song in church today. We had a wonderful day with family, too. Blessings-xo Diana

  2. Happy Easter, Nellie! Country Girl's hairdo is lovely.

    Did your bunnies multiply, or did you start out with lots of them? ;)

  3. Yes, it has been a glorious day here! I'm so happy that two of your children were able to join you today, and I'm sure that the other one would have, except that Munchomom's hubby, being a pastor, was required at his church.

    Our cantata was "Amazing Love," written from the perspective of Mary Magdalene, and had many beautiful and touching songs, ending with the glorious fact that Jesus was victorious over death, giving us victory for eternity!! Such a thrilling fact for us to take to heart!

    Everything about the bride was just lovely! Her personality shone throughout the ceremony and reception! She is such a blessing to all who know her!

    Yes, it will be good to know more about those cookies.... :-)

  4. It looks very nice, I like the hair do on your daughter.
    It looks so nice today.

  5. Glad to know that you have had such a happy Easter with your family.

  6. How special that you could all be together for Easter. Beautiful pics.

  7. Sounds like you had an amazing day! So glad...and that the girls were home for Easter!

    What a blessed day!
