On Saturday, we did a lot of errands and prep work for Sunday. The kids did get to have an Easter egg hunt with some friends from our ward, though.
(What a beautiful blossoming tree! Talk about Popcorn Popping!)
On Sunday morning, the kids woke to the traditional Easter bunny tracks leading them to their baskets.
Poor Sam. All he got was a little bouncy ball!
Then, the Harris family and Natalie came over for breakfast! I love 11:30am church on holidays. It means we have time for a special breakfast without having to get up too early. We had overnight french toast (SO tasty), fruit salad, and sausage.
Church was very nice, especially sacrament meeting. We had three musical numbers: a beautiful duet by the Murdocks, a ward choir song that I got to direct (I've been substituting as the ward choir director because we don't have one currently), and a song by the Primary. My favorite was the Primary, of course, because I love to hear James singing. :)
After church we headed to the Belnap's home for the rest of our Easter festivities. Natalie and the Harrises joined us as well. It was so fun to spend the afternoon and evening with them! Thank you to the Belnaps for being such wonderful hosts!
The kids got to have another Easter egg hunt in the backyard.
Sam and I (and everyone else) looked on.
The food was awesome. I made the ham and a carrot cake/cheesecake. Claudia made deviled eggs, scalloped potatoes, and an eclair cake. Diana made rolls and a salad. I love potluck meals!
It really was a wonderful Easter weekend.
