It didn't feel like Easter this morning, but people still rose to the occasion with pastel flowered dresses and white shoes. The community sunrise service I usually attend on Easter wasn't held this year for some reason, so we just went to church as usual.
Starting next Sunday our church is dropping back from two services to just one each week and as long as we have room for everyone I'm happy about that. I guess our church is medium-sized for our area, but there are so many people who go to it who I don't know because they always go to the 8:30 service and we always go to 11. One of the side benefits to this is that we're going to have a lot more help in the nursery, which is a perpetual challenge at our church.
Right after church this morning we had Easter lunch/celebrated Matt's Gran's birthday at his Gran's house. We completely stuffed ourselves and then went home to doze/read/watch basketball for a couple of hours before heading to Mom and Dad's for Easter dinner.
I was planning to work tomorrow since we're going to be out of town on Thursday and Friday but my day has been consumed with more fun plans: breakfast with Mom, lunch with Melissa, and an afternoon "Closer" date with Amanda (we're having company over for dinner at 5:30 p.m. -- they have two girls who have to be in bed by 8:30 -- so I'd have to be home early cooking anyway).
Mark and Jordan's wedding is Saturday in (on?) St. Simon's Island, Ga., and we're planning on heading south on Thursday, but we're not sure whether we're going to spend a couple of days in Savannah, or go straight to the St. Simon's area, or go somewhere else in the vicinity. Anyone have suggestions?
