Good Friday

Here we are, heading into Easter weekend. I hope your family is able to celebrate this holy season together.

My 13-year-old has invited two friends over tonight. They've requested pizza or cheeseburgers for dinner, but I may offend their delicate natures by making spaghetti and meatballs instead. Sidenote: when I was younger, my friends and I used the phrase, spending the night or slumber party; today's kids say, sleepover. Also, playdate? We used to say, visit or go play with. You know you're getting old when your children roll their eyes at perfectly good lingo, but that's another post for another day . . .

On Sunday afternoon, our best friends and their two little boys will come over for Easter dinner: ham and scalloped potatoes, because we're fancy like that. We'll hide a ton of eggs for all the kids to search out. The backyard is a soggy mess, but the front yard has dried nicely, so I think we'll plan an outdoor hunt.

Have fun looking for eggs in the woods, kids! Don't let the moose getcha.

May your basket be filled with lots of jelly beans. Or something like that. Happy Easter, gentle readers. He is risen!

Dinner last night: pasta alfredo with shrimp

Sounds like a fun weekend. I made your ham and potato casserole last year! Yum :-)

Just finished dyeing our eggs. Pierce turned them into rescue vehicles. LOL - they aren't going to last long, as you might imagine!

Despite the flowers we have blooming here, the outdoors is very soggy. Our egg hunt may have to be inside this year. Have a wonderful Easter!

Mmmm I'll come over for spaghetti and meatballs and you won't offend my sensitive palate.

Easter dinner sounds great too.

This Easter for me is full of lots to be thankful for in a spiritual sense. I get to have Easter off as well (last year I had to work.)

Your yard is perfect for an Easter egg hunt.

Happy Easter to you guys! May the moose be kind and NOT eat your baskets!

We always have scalloped potatoes from a box. That's how we roll.

Have a great Easter!

Oh my gosh, you're so right! I used the exact same phrasing you did! I hope you have a wonderful Easter (and that you survive the sleepover).

Happy Easter to you. We made it outside but the squirrels ate the eggs first.
