Easter is winding down

April 8th, 2012 by Chris

We’re nearing the end of a fine Easter day here at the Schierer household. The morning candy ingestion (followed by the after church, pre-dinner, after-dinner and afternoon candy ingestion) is manifesting itself in short fuzes and two children currently scooting past in a laundry basket.

Our day started at 7AM with the Hallelujah Chorus and an Easter egg hunt. Rachel was thrilled to discover that the plastic eggs contained her favorite food of all: “M M M!”


Afterwards, I hurried off to church to practice. I joined two trumpet players and the organ on Trumpet Voluntary before the service started. Easter service was, as usual, filled with great music and a fine message, and unusually included a “zombie movie” reference. [1]

The kids of course looked great in their Easter finery.



Don’t let the sunny pictures fool you. It’s rather cold and very windy here today. I guess since March was filled with June weather, April’s going to have some of MayMarch.

We spent most of the afternoon indoors, with N trying his hand steering in Need For Speed. He did pretty well up to about 40 mph… then we would see more guardrail than road. K’s working on some knitting, and Rachel is figuring out how to climb up to where the Easter candy is.

I hope all of you had a fine Easter too. (More pics, as always, in the gallery.)

  1. This amused me, in particular, because I was joking to a friend that the “Left for Dead” series would make an irreverently appropriate Easter sale on Steam. []
