Easter


We have the elder's over pretty regularly at our house for dinner. Not so much because we're nice, but more so because we always have awesome elders in our ward and having them over is pure entertainment. I figured since last years Easter dinner we had a bunch of friends over, and that group has since doubled in size with all of the babies that have come along, we'd invite the elder's over instead. I needed to justify cooking a big dinner, you know, and who better to feed than the missionaries?

After an already insanely busy weekend, John and I somehow managed to throw together a dinner for a larger than expected crowd. And I'd like to think, short notice and all, we put together quite the feast for the six elders that showed up Sunday night. I'd post a picture of said feast for you all to drool over, but the dessert pictures turned out far more drool worthy than the picture of the actual meal.

And of course, Easter isn't complete without an Easter egg hunt, so after dinner we sent the boys out back, in our jungle nonetheless, to hunt for the goods. Pushing, shoving, bricks in sacks, these boys pulled out all the stops to try to score the most eggs. Like I said, usually when we have the elder's over it's pure entertainment, and this dinner proved to be no different.

I think it's so cute that you had an egg hunt for them. I bet they loved it... even if your yard was a bit jungle like. And that cake looks delicious!

I wish the missionaries in our ward were that entertaining . . . oh wait, maybe they are. We wouldn't know. The one time we tried to have them over was a disaster.

That cake looks awesome. I want to make it asap.
