#Holiday - Happy Easter 2012!!!

Ansley Ansley






When I was a little girl, Easter was my second favorite holiday because of all the yummy candy and cute designs for the containers. Am I the only one that remembers the bubble gum shaped like bird eggs that were in an egg carton? I just thought it was darling! We didn't get into much of the religious aspect of it, and kept everything light and airy for the kids. Now as an adult, I love to see the signs advertising egg hunts and those kinds of things, it feels good to know that some things never change.

What is everyone doing for the holiday? Maybe plans for a big family dinner or church event? Is your celebration as an adult vastly different than when you were a kid?

Happy Easter! I was raised in a very Catholic family, so the religious aspects of Easter were stressed. We still got baskets and candy and eggs, though.

On Easter, my family and I are going to my dad and step mother's house for a luncheon, with TONS of food.

I have to make the "Lambie Cake" for which I am famous. )There are pictures of last years' on the frames of some of the pictures on Eden's Calendar!) If I have the time, I'll make a matching chocolate bunny cake. My Man's mother gave me both bunny and lambie molds years ago. These cakes are big in both My Man and my own heritage. (No, it's not a "Lamb" cake, it's a "Lambie" Cake! My kids made sure the distinction is well observed.)

Before that, we'll have baskets for the kids at home. It's our first Easter with our oldest daughter out of state, so instead of last year's five baskets (one for each kid and for the two older one's partners) we'll only have two. Oldest girl and partner have moved and middle girl broke up with boyfriend. Maybe I'll come in at under $100.00 bucks on Easter stuff this year. I always go overboard. My kids are getting a little old for baskets, (the middle one is in Grad School and the "baby" is 12) but I can't give to only the little one. I didn't grow grass or line a basket with moss this year, so I'll have to buy that horrible Easter Grass. I only buy the paper grass, if I can find it, NO plastic grass.

It will be nice to see my dad and his wife.

I love that you're really into and still get the older kids presents and stuff even though they may have outgrown it. For years, my mom would buy my sister and I a new stuffed animal for Easter once we got into our teen years.

What's a Lambie cake? Just a cake shaped like a lamb?

Happy Easter. We will be going to church. Easter is the most important celebration in the Christian church. It is my favorite holiday, followed by Christmas.

Happy Easter everyone!

At preschool yesterday my sons class had an Easter egg hunt and that made him excited so my husband and I ended up having to hide them again once we were home and dye his eggs early. We had such a fun time.

On Sunday, we will have Easter dinner at my in-laws and hide the eggs for the boys.

Happy Easter everyone!

We actually forgot about the holiday being tomorrow and so did our family. My mom and dad are living on a limited budget and spending money on ham was out of the question for this week, so we decided to celebrate the holiday next weekend. It works out better for everyone because almost everyone else is working overtime this weekend. This will be the first weekend my hubby did not have to work. So, we are just spending time together and relaxing. Holiday for us is next weekend. We have to shop after the holiday too. So we will get all the sales. We actually end up doing this a lot during the holidays. We work out the time everyone can be together.

Happy Easter my fellow Edenites!

We're not religious at all so we don't really do too much for Easter. Normally my mother in law will come over and drop off some candy and things for our little guy. Sometimes we'll boil eggs and decorate them but this year we just didn't bother with it.

Forgot to mention. I am waiting on the lil ones to go to bed so I can make up their baskets. Usually I would buy them but this year I decided to make them.

Happy (belated) Chocolate Day, everyone!

I merely contented myself with eating my egg, reading my book and watching Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman. His narrative makes it feel like I'm making lurve to the universe .

Yeah, kind of seems like it was a low-key holiday for everyone this year. Having a bad economy when holidays roll around is never very fun. Not that gifts are important, but even putting on a meal for six people can break the bank these days.


We watched the Cubs kick ass against the Nats. Unfortunately it was the last game of the series so it didn't help in that regard, but there were a few stolen bases and some unbelievable catches/plays made. It was a great day and the only thing that would have made it better is if we had been able to be at Wrigley instead of in our living room.

I didn't do much of anything for Easter sadly.
I miss the childhood Easter egg hunts, and dyeing eggs fun colors.
But I still got myself some Easter themed candy.

Nowadays my family often celebrates certain holidays by accident. This year a few of us went out to breakfast on Easter but more by coincidence than anything.

Easter was always fun when i was a kid because my family would gather at my house. we (the kids) would have eggs filled with confetti and throw them at each other after the egg hunt. This year i had my nephew over it was fun and i can't wait til he's old enough to do the egg hunt-thing.
