Up From the Grave He Arose

I hope you all had a good Easter! Ours was filled with church, food, family, friends, and for me, a nap and the Sound of Music on TV. For Nick, he cruised in the boat on the river.

The past two years the Spooners have come over here to eat Easter lunch, and both years we had salmon. This year I decided to change it up by picking up some fried chicken from our friend The Colonel. I also made pavlova for dessert. I used to request pavlova for my birthday instead of cake. You may be wondering, what is pavlova? And no, it isn't a country. Pavlova is meringue topped with whip cream and any kind of fruit you like. I almost couldn't fit all the fruit I wanted! There are many recipes to make meringue. You can also make any shape you want. I like the big circle display.
Here Smalls was eating the leftover fruit. He really liked the mandarin oranges and blueberries. Later he even ate his own serving of pavolva!
Don't you like my Easter flower arrangement! It came from my yard.

We also took our annual Easter picture by the pool. Next year there will be three of us!
Christ the Lord is Risen Today, Alleluia!


  1. Do you think you could make pavlova in the shape of Cam Newton next time?

  2. I think SB's idea is a good one. Seriously, the Pavlova looks amazing and you look adorable!! Sounds like a very good Easter!
