Easter Breakfast & Service

On Easter Sunday we got up bright and early to make it to the 'Sunrise Breakfast' at church. Thankfully it wasn't truly at the hour of sunrise, but it was 7:00 am, and I confess that the Dressel's were the last of the all the family members out the door!

Some of the Meadows/Dressel crew: clockwise from lower left - Laura (notice her shoulder length haircut!), Robert, Howard (my dad), Joel (standing, the one who has the skater hair Juancho was hoping to emulate), Debby (my Mom), Michelle (my younger sister) and Jenni (my older sister).

My niece Ashley (who stayed with us for a while last Spring) and her
daughter Serenity (7 months)

Juancho, looking handsome as always,
satisfied from a great Easter breakfast!

Angie looks a bit like I caught her red-handed
doing something she wasn't supposed to! As far
as I know she wasn't up to anything... :)

The Family Picture:

This is our 2nd Easter together as a family, and I'm starting to see a theme with trying to get a family picture with us dressed in our finest. Last year, donuts were the reason for family picture difficulties - click HERE to re-live that (scroll to the bottom).

This year I claim that the intense sun caused me to blink right at the moment of the picture click...and Robert to be squinting intensely...the kids look great though!

So, when something fails, try, try again, right? So we did - a number of times. And each time either someone was turned around, or talked at the moment of the click or SOMETHING. This was the best pic we got - and actually I think I like it even better than a regular posed picture - it captures the joy in our family!

Princess Angie! She wore the same
Easter dress as last year and looked
as beautiful as ever!
