Easter Fun!

Easter is my absolute favorite holiday. Traditionally we would invite a bunch of friends over for brunch or a BBQ and have tons of fun all day entertaining guests.
This year had to be a little different. The clock is ticking and we're running out of time before we have to be out of this house, so we decided to put all our energies toward packing and getting ready for the move.

We did still set aside some time for coloring eggs, and I have to say this has been the best year yet for that. The girls are getting older so the messes are getting smaller!

Easter morning was full of excitement as the girls tried to find their baskets. This year the bunny decided to really hide them since the girls are older and wiser. They actually get 2 baskets each. One is an Easter Bag that they got years ago from my friend Sheila, which is filled with non-candy items. The other is a basket for the good stuff. Um, I mean the candy items!

mmmm, candy!
We had a nice family breakfast and then it was right into the basement for some serious packing and organizing. We spent several hours doing that, and then I decided it was time for a family dinner. Tia kept asking "Why do we have to take a shower and get dressed if we're not going anywhere?". My answer to that was "Because it's Easter!".
We had a pretty non-traditional meal of fish, potatoes, cous cous, and salad. It was the easiest thing to make that we would all eat.
What matters most is that we were all together at the same table enjoying the meal time conversation and being a family. That's what it's all about.

I hope you had an Easter filled with joy and little blessings too.
