Saturday was fairly relaxing except our usual pass time of working on the deck and hubby translating. However, Sunday was an early start. 6am Sonrise service and the men like to get there at 5am to cook. Mr. Workman decided to pre-cook some pecan pancakes, which he had been asked to bring, and arrive at 6am so I would not be alone getting all the kids together. The twins, Matt & David who usually get up early were so tired and wanting to go back to bed. Jon couldn't figure out what was going on! I think he thought we were headed to St Louis to the doctor to be up so early when it was still dark. Vanessa, Corrine & Hannah were dressed in their best and ready to go long before the rest of us. I was SO happy that someone was awake....go girls!

Then came MY FAVORITE part of Easter this year! Mr. Workman cooked a complete turkey dinner with all the trimmings while I took a five hour nap!!! The nap was great and his dinner was even better! Turkey, potatoes, noodles, sweet potatoes, rolls and even pumpkin pie...what a man!

This year Ma and Pa Easter Bunny were sneaky and the eggs that sounded like they had money, only had pennies! HOWEVER, the eggs that felt like they had Peeps in them had quarters! It was great fun watching each of the kids gathering eggs. Jon was perhaps the most excited and apparently he remembered Easter from last year. He was ready to open eggs and eat lots of candy, which he did, so much so that I delayed his tube feeding a bit on Sunday evening to make room for his formula.

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
