When I was a kid it was just me and my mother for a long time so we didn't have a big meal or anything but I always got a basket and always went to an Egg Hunt. Now that I have kiddos I have added my own traditions. We always go to church, the little girls' get Easter dresses, we take pictures with the Easter Bunny, they get baskets (which must contain chocolate).....KK is getting a cool spring tote with some goodies in it this year. We try to cook a special meal....this year is going to be Honey Baked Ham, Corn on the Cob, Broccoli with cheese sauce, and Yeast Rolls. We are having Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast before combined service at the Callioux and Chocolate Cupcakes for dessert. We have went to one egg hunt together, the younger girls' had one at their youth group, and we will have a family one tomorrow. It may be inside if the yucky weather we are expecting rolls in. I love Easter for so many reasons....first and foremost is because of the sacrifice made for us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!! It is is a good signal that Spring is actually here. There are (most years anyways) flowers blooming which is the language I tend to speak.....I ADORE flowers!!!! I bought some for our Easter centerpiece as well as some to go on top of my desk. We went today and got Diva's pictures done with the Easter Bunny....we did Love Bug's and Busy Body's last weekend. We hit the store for a quick fix dinner and to grab KK's prescription. The kids' ran around in the yard for a few hours while I did some picking up of the yard and hanging out with them. I am fighting off a migraine but other than that is has been a really busy but relaxing day.
Counting my blessings:
That Christ died on the Cross that I might be saved from my sins
That I can share a holiday with my family
That tonight is Mom/Dad movie date night
That tomorrow I will get to see my girls' in pretty Easter dresses
That we are having an awesome meal tomorrow
Weather: Dusk and Cold
Dinner: Pizza and Fries
