It's raining cats and dogs here as I write this -- a good day to bury your nose in a book. lol Of course I've got tons of work around the house, but here I sit reminiscing about Easters past.
When my kids were little, we always had an Easter egg hunt. My husband would go outside early on Easter morning and hide the eggs that we had colored earlier in the week. When we returned from mass, my kids would grab their baskets and run around the garden, hunting eggs. My son, who is a laid-back artist type, would happily amble about, waiting for inspiration. My daughter, who is a type-A competitor, raced around grabbing the eggs she had noticed when we went to church. When the hunt was done, we would always take some family pictures in our Easter finery.
My son is 22 now, and away at school. My daughter is 18 and busy with AP courses and senior projects. But I think I'm going to run out to the store today and get some eggs. :)
If you celebrate Easter, I'd love to hear about your special Easter memory today...
