I think I've determined that Easter is my second favorite holiday behind Christmas. I know what you're thinking, how could I like Easter more than Thanksgiving, but I really only like Thanksgiving because of all the traditions and being around family. I'm not a Thanksgiving food person at all, but I am definitely an Easter food person. Especially, this year's food! Not to mention, Easter is pretty much the whole basis behind my faith. It's the reason I am able to live everyday so joyfully, knowing that although I mess up many many many (I wasn't the best wife this week) times, I get second and third and fourth chances. The best part is that I don't have to work for those chances, I just accept them. It's amazing!
Growing up we had Easter on my grandparents farm every year and we would hunt for Easter eggs all over the place. For the past 3 or 4 years we have moved it to my oldest sister's house so we have can more little ones around. Katie has 2 little girls and their cousins get to come (my brother-in-law's nephews) and then they have 3 other cousins from their great aunt as well, so we have a blast!
This year I wanted to contribute some good eats, so I woke up bright and early, headed to the grocery store and cooked up a storm until we had to leave. My contributions to the Easter meal were Bleu Cheese Broccoli Bake and Old Fashioned Chocolate Cream Pie. They were both awesome!!
