Normally, we always go to the Good Friday service at College Park Church and I make hot cross buns. But this year, Cameron was out of town all week, we had some bad storms that "stole" some of my time and I was way behind on sewing that needed to be done. So we didn't go to the service and there were no hot cross buns. But we were very excited to welcome Daddy home and go to Chipotle for dinner and then to Trader Joe's to pick up a few necessary ingredients for the next day and Sunday.
Saturday, my parents and one of my sisters and her children came up for brunch and an egg hunt. My other sister and her family weren't able to come for the first time. We missed them, but we still had a wonderful time. Sorry Valerie! :) Kate and Aidan played together like two peas in a pod and Callie and Claire played with, what else, their American Girl Dolls.
My parents used our Resurrection Eggs to tell the story of Christ's death and resurrection while the other grown ups hid the eggs outside. It was nice having them tell the story and hopefully we can do that every year. It was very wet, but we had on our boots and the kids had a great time running around looking for eggs. I used to turn up my nose at plastic eggs, but not more! We decorate one dozen real eggs for fun, but for hiding, we go all plastic.

Kate is on a mission!
Aidan, he really was having fun.
Even Lilly got in on the fun
Thanks to my mom who hemmed the girls dresses, they were finished and I even had time to make myself a skirt before midnight! It was cold and rainy so this is the only picture we took, but we will take some more the next time the sun comes out. Although I am seriously beginning to doubt if that will ever happen!
We did continue our tradition of Resurrection Rolls for breakfast and Easter baskets before church. We actually attended two churches. First our regular church and then several of us from our church volunteered at a church in downtown Indianapolis serving them lunch. It was a great day worshipping and serving others!
