I love, love, love Easter. I love the meaning. I love the bunnies. I love the colors. I love the chocolate!!! I love baby chicks and the image of sunshine and dew on the grass. I love making Easter baskets and coloring eggs. It has been my favorite holiday for as long as I can remember. My mom and dad use to go all out for my brother and I and it was an all day event. We would have trails of jelly beans from our beds to our baskets and we had amazing Easter baskets. We would have breakfast and then go to my maternal grandparents house where all of the grandchildren would get another basket and lots of goodies. We went to church for a egg hunt and then had another hunt in my grandmother's back yard. If it was too cold out, we did the hunt indoors. There was lots of good food and it is one of my favorite childhood memories by far. So many people in our family are gone now: my father, his parents, my grandfather Raymond, my uncle Kenny and our great-uncle Bill. Kevin, Tony and I have our own children now and I'm hopeful that our tradition will carry on. Anson is too young to get the full affect, but we'll try! I wish everyone a Happy Easter and know that Dave, Anson and I love you all very much. We hope you have a lovely Spring that carries you through a happy, healthy year.
