I know Easter was a good three weeks ago, but since the Easter season goes until Pentecost, which is on May 19th this year, let’s pretend that this post isn’t belated. Here’s a little recap of our Holy Week and Easter Sunday from our Instragram pictures.
- We attended a Maundy Thursday service together at Bethany Presbyterian on Queen Anne in Seattle. We were both in between workouts: Lisa was in her yoga gear and Becky in her soccer shorts. Thankfully it was a pretty casual affair so we didn’t stick out too badly.
- Becky bought a giant pack of Sharpie markers for her girls for Easter (or perhaps more for herself!) and her whole family had a blast decorating eggs. First they dyed them in the traditional manner in food-safe food coloring and then drew all over them in the possibly toxic Sharpies.
- Here’s Becky’s husband, Andy, mixing a massive amount of his famous Kickin’ Korean Chicken in preparation for our church’s post-Easter Vigil party. The recipe will be up soon!
- All the kids at church making a joyful noise during our Easter Vigil service. This part of the Easter Vigil service is seriously called the Tintinnabulation.
- Easter breakfast at Becky’s was fantastic! Becky made her now famous sticky buns (at least she thinks so) as mentioned in the last post and Lisa brought English meat pies from Pie and pink champagne!
- We both unintentionally wore yellow on Easter Sunday. It was a beautiful day here in Seattle 70 degrees! Too bad it’s been back in the 50s and raining ever since.
A little note: the theologian N.T. Wright suggests that during the Easter season we should have champagne for breakfast every day, if only we could afford that! However, champagne for breakfast on Easter will definitely become a tradition for us from now on. Does your family have any fun or unusual traditions for Easter? We’d love to hear about them!
