Resurrection Sunday

We had dreamed of gathering with our church community, a giant family egg hunt out here, the cascarones from San Antonio, a big family dinner....but this year was different.

It was a lazy morning with no set start time. As everyone was up we watched church. We set Dad up with the livestream from our home church in Oregon as I prepared dinner. Unfortunately, we couldn't get it to cast onto the big screen...but he was happy enough with the set up.

I was finally happy with a ham I baked. ::wink::  Yes, even I had 3 oz of ham...It won't hurt once or twice a year.  The Resurrection Garden was a nice centerpiece. I'll save the pieces to do this again next year.

We had a leisurely morning, the grands weren't going to be here (I don't worry about the china, but their parents do) I pulled out the china from Mom G and Mom and I used Gram's juice and kombucha are much more festive in the crystal. ::snort::  We told the boys they could come out from the Royal Blue Cave and join us around the table. They went back to quarantine afterwards.

The chickens enjoyed their Easter treat - a bit of scratch outside of their muddy, snow-covered chicken yard.
Bella turned 4 today!  BreZaak invited us all to her zoom party. It was a great way to get EVERYONE together. JaRissa joined from Juneau, Dakota from OR, and all of us from our various homes in the Valley.

Benny was ready to climb into the screen for a hug and a kiss. 

We watched Onward on Disney +....and then Stacia and I went out for a walk. We went on a route we've not done since last fall. The roads are clear. We even saw ONE TREE with buds on it - which Stacia thought were creepy. It was a good way to end the day.  This is 8:30 p.m. 

I've finally taken down the "winter" wreath - the one with pines and red berries. 

I can't quite get used to a snowy spring...but here it is...this is spring in Alaska.
