Easter Weekend 2013

April 2, 2013 § Leave a comment

We had a lovely Easter and 4 day holiday weekend. We went out to the mall almost every day so that Nathaniel could practice walking. Although the mall isn’t my husband’s favorite, it is the perfect place for Nathaniel to practice walking on a big flat open surface.




He even got to drive his favorite little electric “motocar” as a treat. He always says he wants the “jumping castle” then changes his mind at the last-minute when he see this beauty.



We had a lovely Easter church service at our home church where we had a Passover seder celebration and enjoyed lovely food with our dearest friends (and their guests) in Lusaka. The kids with special needs ran around and had a nice time finding Easter eggs hidden around the yard. The older typical developing kids helped them out. It was a nice pairing.


Nathaniel was so excited his chewy tube fell out of his mouth!


His friend Isaac helped his find his eggs. Mama wasn’t needed.


Joab and Andrew quickly tired of looking for eggs and took a minute to rest.


Now that Sam is 18, he was WAY too busy texting and calling on his pretend phone to busy himself with an egg hunt.Easter-Weekend10


In the busyness of the day (I cooked 25 home-made latkes and made a big green salad. Latkes are way more work than you think.) we neglected to get a picture together even though we all looked great. I’m hoping you can imagine how handsome and pretty we looked. Higgins included. We are sending our love back to our family and friends at home!



Long Weekend

Twin Palm Road, Lusaka

It is the beginning of a four-day weekend here in Zambia. Yes, you read that right. Four. day. weekend. Good Friday and Easter Mondays are national holidays in this Christian nation. Adding to that joy is that my husband has returned from the Great Blue Yonder of the Luapula province of Zambia and has been returned to the loving arms of his family. We are taking some time off this weekend to be together and enjoy the Easter celebration as a family. Wishing you a lovely holiday and restful weekend.

{Movie Monday} Church at Qwest

Mars Hill Church hosted their 2011 Easter Service at Qwest Field.Ā  I haven’t been feeling well these last few days but did muster up the energy to attend the service. It was very cool to be all together as a church and Pastor Mark Driscoll preached a great and Gospel centered message. The video is from aerial shots that were taken during the service. We’re on the 300 level on the north side…I can just barely see myself šŸ˜‰

It. is. finished. (Well, sort of)

Yes, its Easter weekend and we’re celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus. The Gospel is a beautiful thing. In other news, I finished my sweater (seen here previously).

Although I’m proud to have finished it (and it was a long process), it seems to be lacking the shape originally intended for it. It bags at the arm pits and the bosom area is rather, um, large. I’ve washed and dried it (high heat) with no luck. Guess I won’t be wearing this one. Oh well. The good news is that I have momentum from a finished project. Hooray! Here’s to more attempts in the future with better results!

Where Am I?
