In my opinion, tomorrow is the highlight of the Christian year and we like to celebrate it in a big way. This year that means lots of friends, but not too much work. A clean house, bountiful food, and my lively family are what I can offer my guests. My method for entertaining at this stage of life is to invite people and tell them to bring whatever they like. I then cook whatever I like and we eat whatever arrives. This year we are even using paper plates and plastic cups. I’m estimating we’ll have nearly 60 people here (including my gang). Strangely, once everybody arrives and we’re standing together to pray, I will inevitably feel that we could have invited more.
Much to Ladybug’s dismay there will not be a complex treasure hunt, complete with GPS clues and visits to the neighbors (like we had a few years ago). Ladybug’s next suggestion was an Easter egg hunt, but I feel like I am doing well just to have Easter baskets for my eleven children. My alternative is a big bag of candy, and a pile of plastic eggs which the kids can fill and hide for each other. It works for me!
We still need to color eggs (the pictures above are from last year), bake, clean, braid hair, fill Easter baskets, and more. I need to stop typing and get busy!
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter – Jesus died and rose again, and I will never be the same.
