This picture of our family on Resurrection Sunday at church actually began much earlier. However, it seems that all the rest of my pictures were dyed spring colors along with our eggs!
The preparation started in the month leading up to the celebration, as we camped out in the family room and created a hurricane of pins, threads, fabric scraps, pattern pieces, and sewing tables.
With the dresses finished, there were preparations for two of Mama's brothers and their families. We were all so excited to be together after several years without face-to-face contact!
Picnic outside, egg dying, and lots of conversation took up the beautiful Saturday.
Romeo dozed next to Coconut, both happy to be enjoying the sunshine and attention!
Sunday morning dawned rainy and overcast, in traditional Washington fashion. We had a fabulous morning, however, with an early church breakfast, lots of fellowship, special music from our family and the children of two other families, and a sermon from Papa!
The afternoon was again a lovely time of catching up with uncles, aunts, and our cousin as we enjoyed a sit-down scrumptious feast. Worldview, Scripture, politics, memories, and the future--we covered it all!
All too soon, the weekend came to an end. Thank goodness we have all these pictures to look back upon and cherish! I hope your weekend remembering and celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ was as blessed as ours.
