This year's Easter was quite eventful. We had a wonderful time with Tim's family over at our house. There were 24 people in our house. We've had more than that here at once, but it was for a baby shower so there weren't a bunch of young kids running around. Nor was it for a really big meal. So this was a first for us. It became my personal endeavor to do everything myself and prove that I could still do it, despite the pain and the fibro. I wanted to show that I'm not going to let that get me down... that I still love to throw parties, open up my home, and be hospitable. But I have learned my lesson and will tone it down a few notches in the future... either by having others bring food in to help with such a big group, or with having fewer people over on a non-holiday. But it was fun and this was our first Easter hosting. Here are a few snapshots:

I hope that you and yours had a terrific Easter, remembering the death of Jesus on the cross for your sins, and celebrating his victorious resurrection! He is risen!
