It doesn't seem like it now, but the weekend leading up to Easter was packed full! Finalizing the end of the work week, participating in a church children's activity, Easter Sunrise Service and finally and Easter lunch gave many opportunities to try new recipes, thoughtfully purchase some gifts and open our home for a family gathering.
Our children are grown and no longer interested in Easter Egg Hunts, but it is so much fun watching the small children laugh and love to find the eggs. There is something sweet about ministering with others during Easter!
For our church's Sunrise Service, we follow with a breakfast. I tried some Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins, which turned out great! HERE is the recipe.
Easter is a great time to practice some creativity. Although I"m not crafty, a few easy projects turned into sweet Easter gifts.
Easter Sunday arrived and we were blessed to celebrate and worship the Lord with our family. One of our sons's birthday comes a few days later, so his favorite chocolate cake was one of our desserts!
This week all the Easter decorations came down, tax season came to a close and 'normal' life will continue. Spring is all around and there are flowers blooming and projects in the making. It is a wonderful time of the year!
