Well, the bunny came this morning. Apparently he is as much a creature of habit as my children. For all they have grown so tall, they still get pretty excited about finding a basket of candy & silly treats!
And they did their thing at the pre-service breakfast. Actually, we were very lucky, in that we weren't asked to do the breakfast for the sunrise service! The second shift didn't require us to be there until 9:00. There wasn't a big crowd, but I was told a respectable amount was raised for the mission trip. Four pans of sweet rolls, plus the coffee cake, turned out to be more than was needed, but the Powers That Be promised she would find something good to do with the leftovers.
(If you can see, way in the back of the room, we had a pianist to provide music with the breakfast!)
There was an egg hunt. Apparently the egg-hiders were inspired to hide quite a lot of eggs high up in the branches of the tree all the kids are looking at. One boy climbed up and tossed eggs down.
And our egg-hider hid eggs after we got home. Because the kids wanted to find them, but I didn't want them to spend long out of the fridge, since I plan to make them into colorful egg salad for next Sunday.
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou are not so;
For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery.
Thou are slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
Alleluia! Happy Easter!
And here is where I plan to spend the rest of the day (until I start hearing rumblings about Dinner, for which I actually do have a plan -- cooking chicken and heating up yesterday's stuffing and sweet potatoes. Slightly more ambitious than spaghetti-out-of-a-box, but not much!).
