Every year before church on Easter morning we attempt to take a family picture. Last year it was sunny and breezy, so we took our picture on the front deck. This year there was fresh snow on the ground, so we stayed indoors.

It was the usual chaos. There were lots of goofy faces and children looking all over the place. It reminds us of the Brady Bunch. Here are couple of our better pictures.

I'm going to have to get Shannon to cut and paste faces so we can get one good picture of everyone. It wouldn't be the first time we have had to do that!

I had gotten up early to bake homemade croissants and a Princess Ring for our church brunch. We were all ready in time to get to church EARLY because the teens serve the brunch. We loaded up in the van, headed out, made it the four or so miles to the blacktop, and realized we had flat tire. It was the third one in a week. We already had the spare on the van from the flat on the previous Friday (we were planning to get it repaired after the holiday weekend, on Monday). We called the church to let them know we would be late, and thankfully Esther said she would come rescue us and give us a lift back to church. The croissants were no longer warm from the oven, but at least we were there!

Here is our Easter picture from last year so you can see how everyone has changed
I can't figure out how to make it bigger now, but I believe if you double click on it, it will enlarge it. Nope, that doesn't work. I'll have to get Shannon to figure it out for me. He solves all of my problems.

"So you may walk in the way of goodness, and keep to the paths of righteousness." Proverbs 2:20
