We had a lovely Easter Sunday celebration at our home in Windy City.  It was low key and quiet, which was just right, after the tensions and high security stress of the Afghan elections.  It felt good to come together with other expats to celebrate Jesus and being together in such an amazing time and place.  Here are a few photos of our time together.
