12 on April 12 - Easter Sunday!

The day (for me) started bright and early at 6am. I had to get up early to prepare our Easter meal, and set out the Easter Candy.

The sun is just starting to rise - looks like it will be a beautiful day!

The Easter Candy centerpiece is ready. Let's see how long it lasts in this form:

Brian awoke early, at 6:45. He couldn't contain himself and he dismantled the Easter candy by 8:00:

All of the Easter fixings were ready by 7:30. We don't eat until 11:30, so why get things ready so early? Our church held 3 Easter services, and we attended last night. But I was scheduled to teach Sunday School this morning, so I went in for that. While I was at church, Scott put the ham into the oven.

Scott did a great job getting that ham into the oven!

Brian's drink - Sprite in a martini glass - because he likes "classy":

For desert - cherry pie. Erica "loves" cherry pie, but doesn't like the actual cherries. She separates the fruit from the sauce and just eats the sauce and crust. I end up eating the actual cherries. [how this constitutes "loving cherry pie" escapes me. Seems like she just likes cherry flavored sugar syrup and crust].

After Easter dinner now, time for some basic chores. Cleaning out the pond filter of leaves, and general goo:

The lilies show some sign of growth. I'll need to clean out the bottom of the pond, too.

The viburnum also showing signs of impending bloom. I love the heady scent of these flowers when they bloom:

Washing the cars:

Finally, we all settle into the family room to catch some of the Masters. Hannah has been spending more time hanging out with Brian:

Oh, I took a nap. After all, I was up really early! Hope you all had a great Easter day!

Looks like you had a wonderful Easter Sunday, Shirley! I had to laugh at how Erica eats her cherry pie ... I do the exact same thing :)

I think Lee and Erica are missing out - but that's okay, I should hang out with them and be the "clean up" crew. =] Great pics and lovely Easter day!

Looks like a great day and for the record - I like my cherry pie just like your daughter does :)
