Easter Sunday was a beautiful, warm, sunny day. The kids at Csobanka were excited because they knew Tammy neni (neni is a term of respect given to women. It literally means 'aunt') was bringing a surprise. They could barely sit still during the service!
Three adults accompanied Tammy to a church member's yard where they hid the 5 dozen brightly colored eggs. Ralph pacified the kids with cupcakes and soda but only temporarily. Soon they were racing to the yard, grabbing their bags, and looking for eggs. After we had searched high and low, still not finding 6 of the eggs, each child was given a big chocolate bunny. They all felt like winners. (We teased the "grandpa" who helped hide the eggs that he hid them well so he could go back for breakfast!)
We went back to the church building where the adults were eager to hear what happened and take a peek in the bags. They quickly agreed on families with children not present that they could give the extra chocolate bunnies to. Everyone was smiling and enjoying the fellowship of each other. It was a wonderful way to celebrate new life in the resurrection of our Lord.
