He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
We celebrated Easter this year by attending church in the morning and then by hosting Addie's family for a yummy ham dinner, complete with potatoes, veggies, crusty bread, pie, and angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream. Fitting 16 people around our table was no easy task, and we realized late Saturday night that we had enough chairs, but not enough places to put those chairs, nor did we have enough matching plates for all the people. We got by though with Aunt Roberta and Uncle Jan's card table, and two sets of different plates (once food is on them who really notices or cares what the plates look like?).
This weekend was fun too, we went to Bunny Bounce at the zoo with our friends Alden, Trish, and Patrick. The kids did a little Easter egg hunt and then we checked out some animals. Caley liked the snakes, elephants and monkeys (and Alden's goldfish crackers). It was a bit cold and sprinkly, but for Seattle the weather
was pretty nice.
Jesus is not dead, He is alive and active in our lives! We are thankful that Jesus did not stay in that tomb!
