Easter 2012

My sister Kathy hosted Easter this year as she has for several years now.

Kathy lives in our family home where we grew up so we now have the fifth generation enjoying this holiday in the same home, in the same yard.  That’s very special to me.  I remember as a child my sisters and I running out to the back yard to find our Easter baskets, and after my sister and I were married and had children we still celebrated Easter at “Grandmas” house.  All the kids have great memories of those days.

Of course the day before the Easter eggs needed to be colored.  Heather and LJ volunteered, and I have to say they did an excellent job!

I hosted Easter at my house for several years when mom got older but after my mom passed and Kathy moved back into the family home, she is back to hosting it.  This year our entire family was able to come.

The two youngest members of the family are my Grandson LJ and my cousin Bruce’s grandson Oliver.  Perhaps a little too young to remember the fun but they still got baskets of goodies.

It is sooo much fun watching the excitement on the kids faces when they go out to hunt for Easter eggs.

Another tradition my mom started when we became adults was to have a special hunt for the grown-ups.  She never wanted to leave anyone out of the fun, and neither did my sister.

The pups had a great time running and playing in the yard too!

It was a wonderful day and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the coming of spring than to share  it with the people you love.
