We had a lovely Resurrection Day celebration at our house, though it was a bit more low-key than usual. Since I kept busy with the kids yesterday I did not do the lamb cake. Since I didn't get the mold out for the cake I forgot about the lamb butter. However, we did have a ham. We had the family over and everyone brought something. It was a bit simpler than usual, but it was still quite good. I think that few missed the lamb cake in favor of the Cheesecake Factory sampler pack I got at Sam's Club.

Lily and Noah got Easter baskets with presents from the dollar store. Noah's favorite was a miniature bowling set, but of course the pins are already scattered. He doesn't seem to mind too much though. Noah still needs to work on his finding skills, but we're getting there. In the afternoon we did a little Easter egg hunt with the kids, though Clark is still a year away from participating. I had not mowed the grass in a while, so the eggs pretty much hid themselves. Noah did a little better with the eggs than the basket.

The good news is that the kids really like ham. This will make things easy for us for a few days. Salty, but easy.

We also started going to a different church for a variety of reasons. I had to do a dump and dash with Noah as he was not happy about going to a new class. Of course, he was all sunshine when we picked him up. Lily would not go to her room, so stayed with us through the service. But Amanda got her wheels turning last night. Lily is now going to go to the class to think about how we should do the kids ministry at our church. We didn't promise her that we would implement any of her ideas, but she is excited about being able to participate. Now she's excited about going to the kids' group.

Yes. I have a friend from seminary and we are making progress toward starting something new. We'll see what the Lord has for us.
