Easter.

"Christ the Lord is risen today, 
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high,
Sing, ye heavens and earth reply."
Charles Wesley

Oh how I love Easter.

For me it's a simpler, quieter celebration than Christmas. And I am in no way saying that one is better than the other...but for me, there seems to be so much activity and hype around the end of the year...holiday plans, decorations, shopping malls, presents...it just sometimes gets too much. While Easter for me, is more simple, more quiet...a time to really sit back, reflect and celebrate and to truly be thankful.

As always, we have been celebrating with the family since Good Friday...with my Mom's legendary pickled fish {I need to get my hands on that recipe}...and it all culminated on Easter Sunday with the traditional lamb roast. Here are a million pics from our day...
Special, special times...hope you all had a very blessed Easter.
