Our Easter (and Passover)

Not in that order, of course.  ;)

Well as usual I was too busy to get decent pictures of Passover, not even the Seder plate which is really the main thing, but never mind.  We took a refreshing night time walk after we were done, for our wilting small children in particular, before herding them off to bed at some unmentionable hour.

So so special, as always, to share my favourite festival, and such a significant experience every time, with such dear dear friends.  They are truly a part of our family.  (The above picture is unrecognisable as Emma with Connor in arms, and Ashleigh, framing tiny purple-coated Roo in the middle.)  Thankyou, thankyou, again, for sharing our learning, our mourning, our hope, and our joy.

We took a little time our from all the traditions to go bowling.  It was great fun.  Love these littles in their special shoes and all their enthusiasm.

On Saturday we did Messy Church and lots of Easter activities.  Yet more chaos - including soil, gravel, glue, paper, foam, and indeed melted chocolate haha.

My tiny went to sleep on Ashleigh.  If this isn't a tradition by now, it may as well be.  Talia does love to fall asleep on Ashleigh at significant festival times.  She *is* a good person for hugs.

So was the cake...  Yeah, that's one where I'll have to get around to sharing the recipe.  It's *delicious*.

  3. Aw, it was a pleasure and an honour to be part of your celebrations, as always. It really means so much to me, and gives me something fun to look forward to/remember when I'm having a bad day. So thank you.x
