On Resurrection Lord's day, I didn't take my camera to church :-( , so didn't get a picture of Kimberly singing in the Chinese choir and of me playing for the choir.
But, we had a nice church service at the Chinese church.
Kimberly also played her violin and I played the piano for the congregation to sing, "The Old Rugged Cross!" while we had communion.

As usually happens around holidays, This Easter I had so many fun treats I wanted to make, and Jesus helped me get them all done.
My family was HAPPY that I had made them! :-)
Here are the pics from our Resurrection weekend! I'm sure this post will make my Mother-in-Love LAUGH...for it's FULL of choc.! :-)
~For the first time I bought a mold and made choc. eggs.
Since I prefer to have nuts with my chocolate...I toasted almonds and walnuts and tucked them inside the choc. eggs.
Isn't this little spoon with an egg on the end (in the glass jar) so cute?~
I made a double batch and they were NEARLY to die for!!! :-)
SUCH YUMMINESS! (Especially since we can't get Reese's here!)
They weren't as sweet as Reese's for I made them with semi-sweet choc. My family and I immediately fell in LOVE with these eggs!~
Reese's Choc. eggs! Such deliciousness!
Lord willing, I'll post that recipe tomorrow for Fun Food Friday! ~
It turned out cute, and though it was a tad time consuming (35 mins.) it lasted for 3 days. :-) ~
I added sprinkles and my choc. eggs to the top of the other cupcakes.~
I had seen a similar idea for this centerpiece on Pinterest.
Since it's not common to color eggs here, I decided to just use white and brown eggs, and wrote "JESUS" on the boiled eggs with marker. :-)~
Saturday evening the girls and I ran to a dollar type store HOPING AND PRAYING that they would sell a bag of Spanish moss or SOMETHING I could use to lay the eggs in for my centerpiece.
I asked the man if they sold any of that, and he said that they DID NOT HAVE ANYMORE! :-(
I prayed, "DEAR JESUS, IF THEY HAVE SOME "Grass" for sale HERE, P.L.E.A.S.E. help us to find it!!!"
RIGHT before we got in line to check out, Sarah looked down and there was ONE BAG OF SPANISH MOSS DYED GREEN!!! YEA!!!
We were soooo happy. (For Sarah wanted some grass for a project she was working on as well!)
God is good...and even cares about "grass" for a centerpiece!! :-) ~
Here it is common to buy LARGE choc. eggs. Every store has them for Sale!
Some have a toy in them, some don't.
We were able to catch a HUGE SALE on these eggs, which made every other choc. egg nearly free! Since I have no Easter baskets here, I used the little "Pureza" bags that FLOUR comes in, in which to throw some little candies inside for each kid. :-) ~
Of course, we didn't give her any chocolate. :-) OR SO WE THOUGHT!!!
We were all busy doing our own thing on Sunday afternoon, when all of sudden we realized that someone had left their Easter candy where she could reach it and she had been sucking on a little choc. egg ...PAPER AND ALL! :-) She was nearly in Heaven! :-) ~
We hope that you had a wonderful Resurrection weekend as well!
