Easter 2008

Easter morning greeted us with a blanket of new snow this past Sunday. Ugh.

Despite the cold and snow, it was a cheerful day as we celebrated the resurrection. Wendy and I served during the 9:30 and 11:00 services at church, and the girls went to the late service with their mom. We then took the girls to the Vander Hart get-together here in Pella where we got to see our newest niece, Sophia. She’s gotten so big since Christmas. What an absolute doll.

Then it was off to Des Moines to have a late Easter dinner with Grandpa Dean and Grandma Jeanne. Jody, Scott and the kids were there so the cousins got to hang out together for a bit. It was a nice afternoon with plenty of great food – like Grandma’s cinnamon rolls and marble fudge cake. Mmmmm.

We finally headed home stuffed and tired in the early evening. It was as Easter should be. God, family, food, and laughter.
