Easter

We celebrated the Voran Easter on Saturday evening at my parent's.

We all read portions of the Easter story. Except Sophia.

Her mommy read her verse, except for one word that Sophia could read - JOY!


And what JOY to know Christ is risen!


Hannah did a great job reading her verse!
I sure couldn't read words in kindergarten!
(but I did know the Japanese hiragana alphabet!)





The girls and their mommy made these Easter cupcakes.

Grandma Lois had hidden eggs outside.








On Sunday, after church, we had the Graber Easter.
Just before we were going to leave for Pretty Prairie, Jill called.
Hannah was running a 101 temperature!
It was so sad that they would not be able to go celebrate with us.

We went to the Prairie Sunset Home to see Allen's Dad.
The rest of the family were also there.
Dad didn't seem to recognize us at all. He didn't say one word the hour we were there and just would look at us with a confused look on his face. But he does seem to really like the workers.

We are so impressed with the staff there. As we were leaving, I saw one worker lean over and give a kiss to one of the residents. It was just so sweet.









There were no little children to hide eggs for this year.




So sad, but we did have 2 older girls who said they would do it. We put some money in some of the eggs.






Sid grilled burgers and we had all brought food. We goofed again, bringing some of the same dishes. We think too much alike. Taco salad and potato salad.


One year 3 of us brought green bean salad. We decided we HAVE to e-mail and each one bring one big dish and decided ahead of time what that one thing is so we don't duplicate our dishes.


The BIG hit though was this:

PEANUT CRISP BARS

Combine in large saucepan and bring to boil:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup light corn syrup

Blend in 1 cup peanut butter.
Add 6 cups rice krispies. Blend well.
Press into buttered 9x13 pan.

Melt package (or two if you want it really chocolatey) chocolate chips in the microwave and pour over top.

Cut into squares before it hardens so it is easier to remove when it is cool.

That recipe looks yummy!! I will have to take to Pete's moms next time we go. (pete and ryan are allergic to peanut butter, so if I made it I would have to eat it all :)
