Easter Fun

He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

I love Easter.  The trumpets and brass, the great hymns, the flowers, the fancy outfits, the candy, and the whole victory over death thing can't hurt too!  We had a nice Easter this year.  I didn't play trumpet for only the 2nd time in 21 years.  It is a little hard to not have a role in the worship service, but I got to sit with little goat in church and take it all in.  New church even had a live lamb at the Children's sermon.

Little goat and I attended one service together and then I went by myself for another service (Mr. Goat was singing in the choir).  Both were fun and it is remarkable the different things that you notice worshipping alone vs with kids.  Still little goat did well and I enjoyed both services.

After the service we attempted to take pictures in the sanctuary, but little goat wasn't interested.  Instead he kept running into the pulpit to preach.  (Mr. Goat thinks that maybe he was trying to sing a psalm like daddy does in the pulpit sometimes). See: 

Oh well, so no pictures at church.  At home, little goat took a nap and while he was sleeping the Easter bunny came.  Grandma, Grandpa, and Auntie Em arrive too.  So after nap we had an Easter Egg hunt!  Little goat had a good time.

After the egg hunt we attempted some more pictures.   With Auntie Em...

The awesome rock in the front yard...
Dirt... (he looks so grown up here...such a little boy now!)
And the whole family... (complete with awkward grip on squirmy toddler)
And then we went inside and had an amazing Easter dinner made by Mr Goat.  Ginger snap Bourbon crusted ham, party potatoes, roast broccoli, deviled eggs, rolls, and coconut cupcakes.  Yum.  So good.

So we hosted our first dinner party, had a successful Easter and an all around great day.  Happy Easter everyone!  I hope your days were filled with joy too!

Love the little orange vest and how it matches Mr. Goat's tie. Dinner sounds delish.
