I feel like I've dropped the ball this year. We don't have Easter egg dye or stuffs to fill the Easter eggs for the kids' egg hunt. I have no idea what we're having for dinner or doing during the day. Usually I have all the goods and all the plans worked out a month in advance! I'm running out of time now, so I'm thinking simple day of baskets, egg hunt, outside play? And for dinner smoke a ham? Jello, green beans, pasta salad? Our friends we had wanted to invite over for the day aren't able to come. So looks like it will just be a Hauck thing this year!
I do have the baskets out and the kids have a chocolate bunny (they get one every year) in theirs along with some jelly beans. We got them each a ball for outside play (Anthony's blue, Molly's pink) and a matching frisbee that the Easter Bunny will deliver Sunday morning. We also got Anthony a little bat and ball set and the two of them a kid's memory match game the Easter Bunny will also have waiting for them. :) I'll probably wind up eating Molly's bunny. lol
I remember Easter when I was a kid. I loved it. I remember helping my dad string plastic eggs out on our front bushes for decoration. We'd do the egg dye thing earlier in the week and those would be hidden in the house Easter morning for my siblings and I to find. The plastic goody filled eggs were scattered, hidden in the yard by my mom and dad while we patiently waited inside fighting the urge to peek out the window to see where they were being hid. Then there were the baskets. Mine was yellow and handmade by myself (with help, of course!) while I was in 4H. We'd get candy and goodies and it was freaken awesome.
I hope my children grow up loving Easter like I did.
I better get my butt in gear and go get some egg coloring!!
With love,Mama Hauck
