A soggy Easter morning dampened all the sunrise services today, even the top of Chimney Rock was shrouded in fog with no chance of a beautiful Easter sunrise this year.
After a nice lengthy morning in bed we crawled out and got our day started. Hubbie had gotten up very early to get the smoker started for our Easter ham and a couple butts to be frozen for later before he came back to bed.
After chores we got the other foods started. A neighbor at market gave me a small bunch of flowers she had left yesterday and they made a nice addition to my Easter table. Thanks Mary Jones !
The kids got Easter baskets of candy from hubbie and I.
Daughter, Josh, Aa and #1 son did the hiding and the kids couldn't wait to get at the hunting !!
Egg hunting is serious business for these two !!!
EL and BB went home for naps and g-son begged me to go outside and play with the new rackets and foam ball he got for Easter from me. So with my back eased off a bit we played in the yard. This smile and hearing him laughing and having fun takes all the pain away !!
After everyone went home hubbie and I took the 2 butts out of the smoker and put them in the freezer.
We did chores just before the rain started again. It isn't a heavy rain and we need more but only received another 1/10th this evening. Maybe it will dampen the pollen some anyway.
Tonight was a relaxing evening of more March madness basketball games to see who made it to the final four. UNC beat Notre Dame to make it in and Syracuse (another ACC team) beat Virginia to make it in with Villanova and Oklahoma who won their games last night.
I am getting in bed late again tonight and need to get back on my early bedtime schedule even if it is spring break week.
Tonight my heart is full of love for my God who gave the greatest gift ever given and then lifted His son from the grave to reign beside Him forever to save us from our sins with His grace and love.
God Bless, Good Night and Happy Easter . HE IS RISEN !!!!!!!!!!!
