Easter at our house usually consists of coloring Easter Eggs on Saturday, with the Easter Bunny hiding two dozen eggs around the house. Ten years ago, my daughter put on her beautiful lavender dress to show M she could 'dress like a girl', but couldn't wait to get home so she could 'get the girly thing off!'
Her First Communion was the following week, so once again she had to dress up in a white dress, tights, shoes, gloves, and a veil. I'd consulted with our priest several weeks earlier, about what to do in the event she refused to wear a dress. Fr. Mark said he was happily accept her in the white shirt and blue pants. But, since 'Grandma was coming and Aunt Liz had bought the dress', she looked like an angel during the ceremony. But once safely at Damon's Restaurant afterward, she quickly shed the white dress for her Easter one, since 'Grandpa hadn't seen me in it.'
This year, it's threatening to rain all weekend. We're expecting 3 inches today, with more rain for tomorrow and Sunday. Tomorrow, we're decorating the eggs, and instead of the usual clan showing up due to a pending divorce, it will be us; youngling's friend B and his mom; and maybe our friends from Bicknell and their two-year-old granddaughter. I need to go get one more chocolate bunny and another bag of candy: I only planned on three kids instead of four! And while I'm at it, I may get one for the daughter's boyfriend.
Have a safe and happy Easter weekend!
