Happy Easter!!!

Happy Easter! This is for the one person that reads my blog...right Amy?

Here is a picture of an Easter card I made. Actually, I made a few of them and gave them out to people when they came to our house or we went to their house yesterday and today. I just love the little bunnies! It's a little hard to see in the picture, but the tails are fluffy. :)

Yesterday, Tracy and I had a really great dinner at my parents' house. My mom fixed salmon with roasted potatoes and asparagus. It was nice to see sister was in town, too! Here's a picture of the dessert, which was called "Raspberry Charlotte." Everything was fantastic!

Today, Tracy and I were planning on relaxing at home for the day after church. Instead, we got invited to spend the afternoon with a couple from church at her house for the family Easter dinner. It was a nice surprise, and we had tons of fun!

There was lots of yummy food, and then we had an Easter egg hunt. Everyone there, no matter how old, got involved in the hunt! What was so special about it? Well, we had the standard candy-filled plastic eggs, but the fun part was the Mexican Easter eggs. I had never heard of this before, but it's a Mexican tradition. You blow the insides out of an egg and then fill it with confetti. It's good luck to find one and break it over someone's head. So...we were running all over the place looking for the "special" eggs and then attacking each other!

Needless to say, we were all covered in sparkly confetti by the end of the hunt. It was everywhere--in our hair, inside our clothes, the yard, and the house! We had so much fun, and the best part of it all is that we made some new friends!

I'm going to try really hard to keep my blog more up to date. Really! I've just been so busy lately that it's been hard to find time to sit down at the computer and post new entries. So that's all for now...more is coming soon.
