we hippity hopped our hearts out

(all pics by my mom)
i hope everyone had a fantastic easter holiday. ours started our spring break. in fact the kids had friday off so it seems like we have been on vacation for a while now already.

our easter was rather low key. i haven't mentioned it to you all yet but we've had more family distress. my mom's mom fell last weekend and broke her hip. she will be 84 this week and suffers from extreme dementia. so that made this past week in the hospital rather difficult for my mom and her sister with whom my grandmother lives.

so with all of that our easter was as i said "low key".

we haven't had good luck with easters in the past few years. last year we were traveling back from alabama after my husbands grandfather had passed away. and the year before that i was way too involved with a children's easter drama at school that had been left to me, so we had no real time for ding eggs and such.

but we did get to the dying this year.

and after realising that showing up "on time" to easter sunday service at our church does not guarantee you a seat we headed to moms for lunch.

not your typical easter feast but we were all happy and there was very little stress. i think i like those kind of holiday dinners better.

the kids feasted on tacos and the adults had an awesome pot of black eyed peas and ham hock with cornbread.

and later came the egg hunt. my mom has a small front yard area at her apartment, so we opted four using that and the garage. although we did make the rule that no real eggs were to be hidden in the garage. i thought i was being rather smart in that thought. and we only couldn't find one real egg so yes mom was really thankful that they were all outside.

and that was easter. like i said its spring break so who knows when and if i'll be back much this week. so everyone enjoy spring!

It looks like you guys had a wonderful Easter. We did an egg hunt, and then the boys wanted to rehunt them over and over and over again. Once, they hid them and asked me to hunt them. I laughed heartily during that one because they insisted on helping me. I hope all is going well.
