The day was murky and dreary, but Easter spirits were high in spite of Mother Nature's dark disposition. Hiding eggs in the yard was supposed to be the order of the day; but sometimes the best laid plans need to be altered, so the Easter Bunny left treats for six excited young egg-seekers in the comfort of the house.
Since this indoor area is fairly close, the Bunny was challenged; but the mission was deftly accomplished.
Lunch was delicious: green salad, ravioli with a scrumptious marinara sauce (here being comedically stirred by Bill), garlic bread, and coconut creme pie for dessert. Mmmmmmm. No Easter ham on the scene! Other than Bill, that is.
I am not sure what it is about the holidays...it doesn't matter which one...that turns my "baby" brother into a little boy all over again. Whatever the cause, it makes for abundance of merriment. At least there was no Redi-whip for him to squirt on me this time.
And so another Easter passes into the archives. As our family expands, it is harder and harder to get all of us together to celebrate in one large group. Jane and the boys visited on Tuesday, so we had a pre-Easter bash; and Jodie and fam spent the holiday in LA, with Bill and Sue traveling south this coming weekend for a belated holiday. Though we don't make it all together very often...I think it takes a wedding... we make it work as best as we can.
