I suppose yesterday’s post of reflecting on things “way back when” has got me reminiscing….and especially about Easter celebrations when the kids were little ones. Some of the fun (or silly) things we did every year…or just the little things we always looked forward to at Easter.
Our Easters were spent at my parents home in North Carolina – that, by itself, was something to look forward to….Mimi and G-Daddy’s house! My mom always bought the kids matching outfits. This wasn’t too terribly difficult with just the first two – brother/sister outfits – but when there were three..that was a bit more of a challenge but she was always up to the challenge. They were, of course, adorable!
Something else that we always looked forward to at the grandparent’s house was an Easter pinata! Yes, we had baskets and even egg hunts but the pinata stole the show!! We had whatever pinata we could find that was remotely spring-like..but just yesterday I saw an actual Easter-themed pinata (no doubt, Mimi was just way ahead of her time!)
Once the kids were just old enough, our Easter baskets were hidden and you had to solve a riddle of clues to find your basket. Trust me, writing up individual riddles for each of the three kids was almost too much of a challenge! Believe it or not, one thing we never did at our house was dye eggs…not once! Go figure.
Yes, believe it or not, we did focus on the resurrection…and we had some fun, too. I just thought I’d share a few of my favorite Easter memories from the past. What are some of your traditions??? I’d love to hear about them.
