Resurrection Day Celebration

Thanks to the Burt and Anita for having us over for lunch today. We had a glorious day. Actually, the weekend has been pretty great. We went to the Boykins' (our pastor's house) for lunch, which we have done for (at least) the past three years. The menu was phenomenal, the company was fantastic, and it lasted, pretty much, all day. Just take a look at this menu:

Appetizers: Spinach Dip, Crackers, Cheese
Mimosas and other various drinks
Main Course: Roasted Lamb, Roast Beef, Sugared Ham, and Fried Chicken
Mac'N Cheese, Mashed Potatoes with gravy (no lumps-thanks Missy!), Broccoli Salad, Roasted Asparagus, and Green Bean Casserole (of course)

Wheat Bread and French Bread with butter

Dessert: Chocolate Cheese Cake, New York Cheese Cake with Strawberries, Carrot Cake, Cinnamon Coffee Cake, Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake, Peanut Butter Pie, Egg Custard Pie, and Coffee

I'm stuffed! Just about everything was homemade and I had to try a sample of all the desserts. Anita and I went for a walk after everybody had left to make the "bleah-I ate too much" feeling subside.
Here are some pictures of the day and of yesterday when we had an egg hunt at our church.




I'm basking in the glow of a beautiful day with my lovely church family. It's hard to believe we'll be leaving in about two months!

Actually Brandon took home about 10eggs! But I think the car was more exciting to him. Fun pics. We all took looooong naps today so we missed the egg hunt and huge lunch.
