We had a 5 stage plan for the day's celebration!
Stage 1 - church with family.
Stage 2 - Prepare Easter dinner and enjoy lunch with Mom and Dad.
I KNEW BreZaak would be busy at church and Bella would be tired and cranky...and pregnant Bre would be tired, but never cranky....they invited us to Stage 4 in lieu of Easter lunch/Dinner. (Sure enough they didn't make it home until 2 p.m.). In the midst of discussions with Bre, I somehow got the idea that CoRielle had plans too.
I am glad I realized, while chopping veggies, the discussions had been with Bre. Arielle hadn't chimed in. They'd also wondered why they hadn't been invited for dinner anywhere. ::snort:: I sent she and Cory a text and told them if they didn't have other plans, we'd love them to join us. They received it in church and were happy to come after their church service. Arielle was glad we remembered, as she said, "We like to eat too." 😂 Will and Sherri were unavailable. Nadia moved on Friday. Mikhail never responded to messages and texts. That left us 5, Lorri, Mom, Dad and CoRielle. We enjoyed those we could be with and the time together. Mommy fail - in the busy-ness of the day I didn't get the boys or Krista contacted.

Stage 3 - CoRielle invited us over for games. BreZaak met up with us here.

Stage 5 - CoRielle invited us back to their place again for more games, house hunting (its become a family past time to check out houses and land in Alaska online), and ice cream.
This was a very full Easter Sunday! Next year in Alaska.
