All About Easter!

Kait on her first Easter with her Maw Maw!

 Easter is just a week away. It's time for the Passion plays at church, Easter egg hunts, Easter bunnies, candy, food especially ham and dying eggs! That is the one thing I remember most about Easter my family dying eggs the boiling water, food coloring and the smell of vinegar . None of the dissolve color tablet kits you can always find at the store! To this day I still like to do it the traditional way with my children and I enjoy it just as much as I did when I was little.

I don't think Logan can fit anymore!
Another tradition every year is attending church and seeing a passion play. These days the plays are very hard to find. Jesus is the reason for Easter and I think it's important for my children to know that.
As the Easter Bunny always did for us he dropped our Easter baskets on our bed as we slept so when we woke up we would have that great surprise waiting for us. He still does that for my children also and they can't sleep for the anticipation.

Last years hunt!

The main food of Easter I remember having and still we eat to this day is Baked ham, potato salad, rolls, mac n' cheese, deviled eggs and plenty of desserts!

Easter is a great time when we get together with family and have a great day full of memories! Please comment and share your Easter Memories!
