Our Easter


We had a lovely Easter celebration last week.

To make our Sunday less hectic, we had the big ham dinner on Saturday night. This also provided plenty of leftovers for Sunday's lunch, without the hassle of having to cook at all.

For Sunday breakfast, I made hot cross buns the night before, which we served with hot cocoa.


Some of the buns I made into "bun-nies" (thank you, Pinterest), which was particularly popular with the younger kids.


For gifts, we continued the tradition of new dresses for the girls, and swim clothes for the boys.

I love this little dude! He is so precious!! 


In addition, all children received new towels, so they could better keep track of them when they go swimming each day. I made these on my wonderful new embroidery machine. The kids decided that since the towels were so nice, they wanted to keep these as their "bathroom" towels, and keep using last year's beach towels when they go in the pool.



I'd like to say this officially opened the swimming season for us, but with Easter coming so late this year, it didn't. The boys have been going swimming every day for about a month now.







The girlies were all sweet and beautiful in their new dresses. I love having daughters! They are so precious to us.






Our church had a new record attendance of 172 that morning, which meant ice cream for all after the service. We also had a baptism.



It was a great day, and full of wonderful memories. And ham. Ah!

P.S. Here is a video for all the "Easter is pagan" folks that might be reading this:



Of course, you are free to disagree - I just really don't wan to hear the arguments from that camp again because it gets old.

One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. (Romans 14:5)

  1. Your family is BEAUTIFUL! I love the dresses and the towels you made for your children. They will have such wonderful memories of how Mommy took the time to do these things just for them when they were little. Also, the idea of making the ham of Saturday is brilliant. I have to remember that for next year. Glad you had such a Happy Easter!!

    1. Yes, the girls do swim also, just as much as the boys do. First thing in the morning in April, however, the water is too chilly for them to want to get in the pool.

  6. Do you all do formal swim lessons at all? or is it more self taught?

  7. Wow! What a beautiful family you have Zsuzsanna. I'm visiting your website today, because I just heard a (video taped) message about homosexuality by your husband Pastor Steven Anderson on Huffpost website. I wanted to commend Pastor Anderson for being courageous enough to speak out against the sin of homosexuality and gay marriage. I believe God is real. I also believe that every word written in the Holy Bible came from God. And the "sodomites" and other sinners who refuse to obey God's word will suffer dire consequences. Zsuzsanna, thanks for allowing me to post a comment on your beautiful website. I know our Father in Heaven is pleased with you and Pastor Anderson for not allowing Satan and his Imps (followers) to place fear in your hearts and keep you all from spreading the good news of salvation in America and all over the world.

Zsuzsanna, may God continue to protect your "wholesome' family and pour out blessings galore!
