(just to clarify... my hubs wore dress shoes to church and then changed to finish smoking the ham. He's a business professional these days after all.)
This year though? It was our first holiday in our new home. My parents and sister joined us for mass, a feast, an egg hunt and a small celebration for my Mom's recent birthday. We ate, laughed, took pictures, watched a movie and overall just enjoyed the day together.
Every holiday is special when you have kids, but I will say Easter is always one of my favorites. The holiday in and of itself is a special one. After all, he is risen! But all of the fun details that go with it make my mama heart swoon. Special Easter dresses, sweet little baskets assembled with care. Watching my husband scatter eggs and my babies marvel at the eggs actually holding something. And don't even get me started on the food. Rob smoked a ham this year, and Easter will never be the same.
Our fireplace hearth is still scattered with Easter baskets and little trinkets and goodies. The day after Easter sales were hit up (only 50% off at Hobby Lobby... what say you HL?!). The ham is still the meat of choice three meals later.
And my heart is still swooning at all things Easter.
I hope all you wonderful readers had a glorious Easter holiday as well.
