Happy Easter

My youngest turns sixteen today. She has the drivers handbook out. The thought of that child behind the wheel of my car makes me shudder.

Easter is pretty low key around here now that my kids are older. When they were little I used to make "bunny" footprints out of baking soda - leading from the entry to where the chocolate eggs were hidden. I started this cute tradition when my oldest was two or three. Little did I realize that I'd be doing it for the next ten or eleven years.

Do you have any Easter traditions?

Happy Easter! When we lived in Ontario, we used to spend Easter weekend with my cousin and her kids at my aunt and uncle's place. It was always a lot of fun for those three days. Really miss that tradition since we've been living down here.

Our other tradition is the Easter egg hunt. And even though our kids are 16 and 14, they insisted on having it again this year.

Other than that, we just eat and play board games -- the same thing we do every holiday.

Annette, I love that you guys still do the Easter Egg hunt. I don't know why I gave that up.
