Easter Weekend

Today is EASTER!!! YEA!! We went to our churches early service. When we got out of the car, we past several kids drapped over their parents shoulders, or huddled on the side walk, walking to church. (it was windy.) They were so cute! Each one was in a cute easter outfit. The message was great, and was divided into small sections. The music was wondeful. We sang lots of old hymns, and some new ones.
Today is not only Easter, it is my best friends birthday! She came over for ABS (area Bible study) with her family. I made her a strawberry lemon cake, and gave her, her birthday present. They actually just left several minutes ago.

Saturday we went to a couple yardsales. Not much luck. But I did happen to find a really nice big blue vase. It is sitting on my dresser with some orchids in it. After yard work and cleaning we tried to go to the amish store. But it was closed for Easter. (the amish store is a place out in the middle of no where. We try and go several times a year. Our tradition is to go around lunch time and buy some bread and cheese. Along with several kinds of candy- Boston baked beans are a favorite!!! ;) So instead we went to Little Richards. After that my grandmas house was right down the road so we headed over there. Sadly, it was my grandfathers birthday (he died 3 years ago) so it was hard for her. On the 14th it will be her fathers birthday day. So April is not very good month. We visted her moms grave and put some new flowers on it. After that we went to my cousins and watched/helped them put up a pig pen. I believe some time soon they are getting a pig, for my cousin!!!

Several posts ago I talked about my 2nd cousin coming over. That night we invited over a friend and grooved to some crazt music. Like 'Crazy' by Gnarles Barkley. Then Natalie taught Jessica, abby and me how to contra dance. We played some Pride and Prejudice music and it was really fun.

I hope each and every one of you had a good Easter!
