Easter 2020


Yes, today was a much different Easter than what we have ever celebrated before.  Since there would be no church we decided to have Easter Breakfast late morning after we came home from private communion.  The girls and I had the table set and the food ready for the oven.  We used the time back for the first time and timed everything perfect as we arrived home as the oven was turning off.  It was nice to have a family breakfast, something that we don’t normally do.


Bacon, sausage, coffee cake, and for two people scrambled eggs.

Kristen had to go to work for 3 hours today.  So we planned on having our Easter Dinner later today instead of around 12:30 after church like we normally do.  I must say, I really loved having time to make the meal and not feeling rushed.  I just might talk the family into moving our traditional Easter Dinner at 12:30 to 4:30 permanently.

Honey Ham, Party Potatoes, Sweet and Sour Green Beans, Fruit Salad and a roll.  Yummy.

On a side note, this has been a clumsy week for me.  The other day, I fell out of bed. Don’t ask me how it just kind of happened because I was trying to do something that would have been easier if I would have sat up and taken care of it.  Then this morning, I woke up to use the bathroom, figured I would need to get up again so I decided to head to the living room to sleep for a bit so I didn’t disturb my husband.  Needless to say, I ran into a box that was where it didn’t belong and somehow ended up pulling a muscle.  Ouch, I never realized how much I use that particular muscle.  It hurts to move, to stand, to lay down, to sit on the commode, and several other things.  So embarrassing, but my girls have really enjoyed laughing at me about it.

Tomorrow begins online teaching and learning for us.


Easter Planning

Starting to plan for Easter already.  This year we will have an extra guest with us so I want to have some fun and make a few things that I don’t normally.  I have wanted to do some of the crafting ideas for a while now, and since we have a Spring Break this year, I will have some time off to actually get some of this done. Plus, I figure it will be easier to break up the shopping and spread it out over the 3  shopping trips left between now and Easter.

Crafting Ideas

  • I want to make Easter Charger Plates
  • I found some really cute carrot treat boxes that look easy to make and would be fun in the baskets
  • Maybe making a fun centerpiece, if I can find something I like

Food ideas

  • Oreo Easter Bark- might be good to send back with the college students to munch on
  • Easter Bunny Chow- also good to send back to college
  • Sugar Cookies


so nothing to hard or time-consuming, just something to make Easter a bit more fun.

Easter Sunday

They say that a picture is worth 1000 words.  For today’s slice I am going to let a few pictures do the talking.  In picture one, is my youngest daughter with a young man from our church.  He is being raised by his grandparents and has some special needs.  Needless to say he considers Kristen the sister that he never had.  Then in picture two, today was about the family of 4 plus 1.  The girl in the middle is a friend of Kristen’s and has been spending weekends with us.  Of course picture 3 is the four of us  So nice to be able to get a picture with the four of us.  Pictures 4 and 5 show the table and all of the fun we had before  lunch.
