Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Early Easter Feast

Tonight, we had the college kids over for an Easter feast. It was a great time! There were 10 college kids and they were great company. I wanted to take pictures of all the food, but I got swept up in getting the food to the table and getting everyone fed, and forgot to take pictures. I did, however, get before and after pictures.

Here are the set tables, awaiting guests. Cadence set all the places for me, put the chocolate eggs on the tables, and cut up colorful pieces of paper to decorate the tables. She was a great helper.

Here's Cadence and Finn's special table.

One of the college girls brought me these beautiful tulips! How thoughtful.

I made these pompom napkin rings to hold cloth napkins that I made from scrap material. I really like them (the pompoms and the napkins).

The yellow Sunflowers are from the Sunflower Market. They look so cheerful.

Thankfully, we ate on disposable plates and used plastic utensils and cups. So, the only dishes to clean up are those that I cooked the food in, which is enough. I think I will tackle that task tomorrow.

Since I forgot to take pictures of the food, I will just have to tell you what the menu was.

Main Course = Martha Stewart's Easter Ham Recipe

Side Dishes = MomPom's Holiday Jello

Martha Stewart's Buttered New Potatoes Recipe

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Weight Watchers Spring Salad with Strawberries and Feta Cheese

It was a delicious night!

And, because I prefer to have posts with pictures of the kids and Brad, here are some photos from Izabel's Chuck E Cheese birthday party this past weekend.
